Day One at CES: It’s a start…
Yes, PMA and CES have combined. More CES that PMA for sure.
So at the first preview of things to come this week, we had a full room of electronic goods which we’ll sift through to bring you some interesting things.
A company called Dexim, had a very cool iPhone bracket that allowed you to add a 1/3-20 standard tripod mount without removing the case. A tension grip with rubber bumps that lets you slip in your iPhone and line up your shot.
Then they added a tiny bluetooth control to fire the camera. sweet.
You can’t toggle between stills and video at his point but it’s coming. about $50.
Then they also had a charging cord that shows you when the current is moving to your phone, and shuts off when it’s done in a very visual way.
Then, since iPhones suck at power, a company called Boostcase brought Pantone-esque colors into a 2 part charger. Looks like a case, charges your phone a least one full charge.
We all need good headsets and the ear fit is always an issue.
EERS brings you an in-home custom molder device, that is a “use once, and recycle”
system. Kinda like epoxy works, once the foam blend is used to mold to each ear, you get a custom earbud with inline mic, and the headset injection system has done it’s job.
There are some more green power solutions but we’ll do more research before bringing it out to you. GoalZero is the name and they feel they now have usable solar power. Now you may be able to go out in the wilderness to shoot, and have power to edit in your tent.
This one should give you about 3 hours on a 15″ laptop, fully charged.
There is more to come and we promise, more photo specific goods, but we have to tell about some of this new gadgetry.
Can’t wait to see the Lytro in person.
