Offbeat tech: The misfits of CES

Here are eight unusual items--some available, others strictly conceptual--that caught our eye at CES 2010.

Concord Keystone 4U2ReUSE Solar Sling Tote Bag

Why not recharge electronic gizmos while you carry them?

The Concord Keystone 4U2ReUSE Solar Sling tote bag lets you do just that.

Made from 100-percent recycled plastic bottles, the Solar Sling features a flexible solar panel and a battery pack with USB connectors. It charges phones, cameras, music players, and other portable gadgets.

The solar cell achieves a full charge after soaking up five hours of full sunlight. A great idea, but will the 4U2ReUSE work as promised? And how about shortening the name to simply "Solar Sling"? The company hasn't announced pricing and availability yet.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
