Mionix inductively charged mouse prototype hands-on: always wireless

Mionix inductively charged mouse prototype hands-on: always wireless

While it's not headed to market for a while yet, seeing a completely wireless* mouse capable of recharging itself on the go wasn't something we expected to see this week from Mionix. Then again we have discovered - over the past year or so - that this relatively small group of creators are capable of making fantastic gaming peripherals, and don't put it past them to figure out the dilemma they've got facing them in this product here this past week at CES 2014. While we can sit still and charge with this prototype mouse - wirelessly - we'll still have to stop with the charging while we're playing.

Mionix NASH 20 hands-on: premium gaming headset in all black

The team at Mionix can never be called out for not taking their time with a product - certainly not in the case of the Mionix NASH 20 headset. Here we’re seeing a pair of headphones with a mic that were originally scheduled to be released last year - here at CES 2014, we’re seeing them in their final form for the first time. For an idea of how high-end these cans sound right this minute, Mionix points toward the meaning of NASH: “according to Arabic mythology, NASH is an Arrowhead, which is a suitable name for a top class gaming headset with superior precision and sharp sound.”

Lumus DK-40 hands-on: Glass put on notice

Lumus DK-40 hands-on: Glass put on notice

Lumus has brought its DK-40 wearable to CES 2014, showing off the new developer unit in public for the first time. The monocular headset is, like Google's Glass, an Android-powered wearable computer, but whereas Glass floats a small window for notifications and such in the upper corner of your eye, the DK-40 actually overlays a full VGA digital image over the right eye instead. We grabbed some hands-on time to see whether it lived up to our expectations from the original prototype we tried all the way back in early 2012.

PocketBook e-paper Samsung Galaxy S 4 ereader case hands-on

PocketBook e-paper Samsung Galaxy S 4 ereader case hands-on

Samsung's Galaxy S 4 may have a great Super AMOLED display out of the box, but it's overkill for ereading duties and, E Ink would argue, isn't really best suited to browsing through ebooks. Enter PocketBook's accessory case for the Galaxy S 4, a fold-out case complete with a 4.8-inch e-paper screen on the inside of the cover. The concept is simple: browse to a book you want to read on the phone, and then flip it over to the e-paper display for low-power reading.
