During the International Consumer Electronics Show 2012, the technology-related trade show held in theLas VegasConvention Center, lots of new innovative technology was revealed and presented in detail.
Since CES 2012 ended on January 13th, it’s time to recap what we’ve seen and to have a closer look upon ‘Last Gadget Standing’ and ‘Best of CES 2012 Award Winners’.
Judges of ‘Last Gadget Standing’ during CES 2012, felt like Playstation Vita’s design, which is incredibly sleek, is capable of revolutionizing portable gaming systems. With fast system graphics, crystal clear AMOLED touchscreen, a rear touchpad, multiple motion controls, joysticks and 2 cameras, Playstation Vita is capable of redering multiple games, their total number being virtually limitless.
Not all judges were convinced about the practical applications of Autom Robot, this being one of those disputed projects presented at CES 2012, but the idea itself of a robot that can help people win diet wars seems fairly convincing. Autom Robot is designed to engage people in a constructive dialog, primarily talking about personal goals, such as loosing weight. It remains to be seen if such an idea will give positive results, thus validating the use of a robot such as Autom.
Cotton Candy was applauded for its innovative functionality. The judges of CES 2012 ‘Last Gadget Standing’ contest called Cotton Candy the Android on a stick. The reason behind this nickname was the design of this particular gadget. Cotton Candy has about the same specs as any other Android tablets out there, but without the outer-trappings. Therefore, Cotton Candy can be plugged to any screen via HDMI or USB. This device weighs only 21 grams, being as light as a ‘cotton candy’.
