every year, electronics companies invade las vegas to show off the latest tech, cutting edge design and lust-worthy gadgets. after a few days of roaming the CES show floor, i’ve compiled picks that pass my pop culture taste test.
sony’s 46” 3D lcd tv: no glasses needed! even though the 3d is not as impressive or pronounced as the models requiring glasses, it is still a nice compromise for people who like the depth of 3d but don’t want to wear those dorky specs. the sweet spot, centered just about 6 feet from the screen, is really beautiful, with vivid depth and movement. so as long as you can squish your family and friends around that, it’s glasses-free 3d for everyone!
the acousticom sound egg is perfect for escaping from it all to enjoy your favorite movies, music, games, sports, and of course, popchips. with surround sound and your own personal tv on a swivel arm, it’s available in custom colors and starts at $1,500. sure to do any (wo)man cave proud.
24K gold plated classic Atari 2600 console: for the hard-core game enthusiast, this is a conversation piece for sure. the only thing that would make this any cooler, and justify the $6650 price tag is you could actually play some frogger on it. but alas, no, it’s just for show.
jack backs are custom wood panels for your iphone. replace the glass back with bamboo, walnut or mahogany, design your custom etching and for just $89-129, your phone becomes a personalized piece of art. what would you etch on yours?
and in the spirit of all things new, what better place to hook up some popchips enthusiasts with our brand new flavor… sweet potato! just another cool thing for tech enthusiasts to try out for the first time on the CES floor.
