Razer Forge TV hands-on: Android TV-based gaming supercharged

This week at CES 2015, Razer brought their first Android TV product to the masses. With a dedicated wireless gaming controller that doubles as a media remote (Razer Serval) as well as a wireless gaming keyboard (Razer Turret) made for the couch-surfing gamer, there's no mistaking the fact that Razer is aiming its cannons directly toward the living room this year. With the Forge TV, Razer is preparing to put the likes of Amazon Fire TV, Google's Nexus Player, and Apple TV on notice.

Hands-on with Mophie’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Juice Packs

Hands-on with Mophie’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Juice Packs

When it comes to smartphone accessories, cases and battery packs probably rank right up there at the top, probably next to earphones. Of course, combining the two is, in many cases, a very good deal. And when it comes to such battery cases, there is probably no other more trusted name than Mophie. Here at CES 2015, the battery case maker unsurprisingly revealed not two but three new products designed for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and we get to take a hands-on of these deceptively large packs.

CES Day 4: webOS is back, and we play Ouija printing!

CES Day 4: webOS is back, and we play Ouija printing!

CES day four (technically day 3, but we’re counting Monday’s pre-event as a day anyway) brought a lot of fun little gadgets and toys. There was more VR, some point-and-shoot cameras, and even a printer that’s not a printer. More Internet of Things stuff was announced, and in case you weren’t sure, SD cards are NFC-capable, now. The car of the future drove into our hearts, and we got a quick look at the light bulb that might make you less cranky in the morning.

Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Here are Audi’s Open webOS and Android Wear watches in action

Audi’s foray into smartwatches has kicked off some confusion here at CES, over whether the car company is working on Open webOS or Android Wear. Turns out, the answer is "both". SlashGear sat down with Audi’s engineers responsible for both projects, to take a walk through the “Secure Key” project that will allow phones and smartwatches from multiple manufacturers to wirelessly start the car, locate it in distant parking lots, and even loan virtual keys to colleagues and friends. Read on for a full demo of both Audi’s LG Open webOS watch and its Android Wear counterpart.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 160, 170 IS hands-on: point and shoot simplicity

Earlier this week Canon rolled out the red carpet for its new line of PowerShot cameras, and two among them are the tiny point-and-shoot ELPH 160 and 170 IS compacts we recently went hands-on with here at CES 2015. Those familiar with Canon's PowerShot lineup will immediately recognize these two as being part of it, with design cues from past models rolling over into the latest options, which are largely most notable for their feature upgrades over past offerings. What kind of features? Read out hands-on to find out!

Immersis wants to beat Xbox to IllumiRoom VR gaming

Immersis wants to beat Xbox to IllumiRoom VR gaming

"This is just a model, the real thing will be much bigger," Immersis' enthusiastic booth team helpfully points out about its diorama, a tiny stem of 3D print-out to represent the immersive projector tech it's hoping will score it a place in living rooms. They're not kidding around, either: assuming the Kickstarter due to open later this year gets traction, the final Immersis VR projector will tower over the back of your couch, spraying the walls around your TV with an expanded gaming experience. It's not the first time we've seen attempts to break out of the TV bezel, but Immersis' approach is particularly ambitious.

Zuta Labs’ robo printer is post-post-paper: hands-on

Zuta Labs’ robo printer is post-post-paper: hands-on

It may be a post-paper world in theory, but in practice a printer is all too often required, but what if it could - like a tiny autonomous car - roam around the page rather than sit in a corner of the office looking ugly? Zuta Labs promised just that last year, a palm-sized mobile printing robot small enough to drop in a desk drawer or a bag, and yet capable of spitting out a page of text and graphics from your laptop, smartphone, or tablet. Rather than shuffling the paper through a slot, however, the little printing robot does all the movement. With working printers now in hand, I caught up with the Zuta Labs team at CES to find out more.

Golf R Touch hands-on: VW’s dashboard of the near future

Bendable displays and fully touch-sensitive dashboards are the dreams of the future, but what are we to do in the meantime while engineers and designers frantically work on the next automotive gimmick? Volkswagen's Golf R Touch represents a return to sensibility and practicality, without really giving up on the visions of tomorrow. Employing the latest of touch and haptic technologies, the concept car's dashboard still manages to wow us while still presenting something that's familiar and useful, injecting an ample amount of hi-tech wizardry without going overboard.

Misfit Bolt hands-on – Wakey wakey, rise and Shine

Misfit Bolt hands-on – Wakey wakey, rise and Shine

Does the world need another connected lightbulb? Misfit believes the answer is yes, and it's taking advantage of its existing place on people's wrists to give its Bolt bulb an edge. Launched at CES this week, the color-changing LED light is quite content to do the usual hue-like switching of tones between different presets; however, it can also wirelessly connect to Misfit's Shine and Flash wearables, along with the Beddit sleep monitor, and tie lighting effects into your sleep patterns.

Audi’s Android tablet: hands-on with a crash-proof slab

Audi is really giving mobile devices a good run this year. After a new smartwatch custom made by LG, the car maker is also turning to tablets. But make no mistake, this isn't your regular Android tablet simply slapped on with some car-related features.
