CES Concept Tech: 16 Gizmos Worth Waiting For

CES concept gadgets range from robotic balls you control with your phone, home theaters for your head, and bendable displays.

Pioneer Smart Cradle for iPhone



Pioneer's Smart Cradle for your car's dashboard just might give your smartphone an inferiority complex.
This prototype Smart Cradle iPhone dock for your car contains built-in GPS - no more relying on a data connection for your iPhone GPS app to draw the map on your display. The car-dock also includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope. The Smart Cradle also has Bluetooth for hands-free calling and has an automatic sound leveler, which raises or lowers the phone's speaker volume in accordance to noise levels within the car.
This early prototype look pretty finished if you ask me. But Pioneer says pricing and availability are still unknowns.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
