The 'Big' Stories of CES 2013

Episode 944

There were 150,000 people seeing thousands of gadgets, TVs, cameras and more. But aside from TVs, there really wasn't much interesting at CES this year, at least not that would change the world. Chiefly absent from CES this year was 3D, so, as Leo would say - our long national nightmare is finally over. The huge thing was, as expected, 4K Ultra High Resolution. This is double the resolution in each direction, or 4 times HD. They're too expensive to really turn the market over this year, though, at $12,000-25,000!

Dick DeBartolo, The Giz Wiz

Episode 943

Dick is back from CES, and it mostly was earbuds, headsets, and bluetooth speakers. The OLED 4K TVs were amazing though.

Dick did look at the Pebble watch, which was neat. He also saw a mist curtain, with an image being projected onto it, and the mist is actually a touch screen. It was $30,000, though. There also was a telepresence device, where you can control an iPad with your face streamed on it, on a moving cart remotely.

Scott Wilkinson Goes to CES

Episode 941

Scott Wilkinson is packing his bags and heading to Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES is the largest electronics show in the United States with over 150,000 geeks in attendance. Leo's heading there as well, and says there's so much to do and see, he barely has time to sleep or even eat.

Polaroid is going to be huge at CES this year, as the tech company is making a comeback, although not necessarily with instant photography. The news is that they'll be opening print shops for mobile devices. Westinghouse is also coming back with a 110" 4K LCD.
