With the holidays approaching, what product or technology is on your wish list?
The 2011 International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, will feature the hottest innovations in gaming hardware and software. More than 35 exhibitors will display the latest gaming technology advancements in the 2011 CES Gaming Showcase.
Las Vegas, Nevada and Mountain View, Calif. – Jan. 6, 2010 – NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. [NASDAQ: NETL], a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced that its Au1250® processor, a member of its Ultra Low-Power Alchemy® Processor family, has been selected by Samsung Electronics to power Samsung’s industry-leading SP-L305 Networked Video Projector for enterprises and small/midsized businesses. Samsung’s SP-L305 Projector will be showcased by NetLogic Microsystems at this week’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2010 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #35268.
Among its many virtues, Sci-Fi is very good at predicting real-world technology. The Steven Spielberg film, Minority Report, predicted two recent favorites—E-Ink and multi-touch. Ever since the latter hit theaters, scientists, researchers, engineers, and technophiles have been clamoring to reproduce the film’s futuristic touch screen technology.
In another sign of the tentative economic recovery, the country's largest trade show saw at least a small increase in attendees, after a large drop a year ago. According to preliminary figures, The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas had more than 120,000 attendees last week, the Consumer Electronics Association said Monday.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show last week, 3-D television, electronic readers and little laptops captured much of the attention. There were plenty of other interesting ideas on display, too, from 3-D printing to a wireless cell phone tether. Here are some of the gadgets most worth keeping an eye out for this year, and some that best deserve an arched eyebrow of amusement.
Every tradeshow has these: the strange products, human snafus, and general quirkiness that characterizes a large organized event. Some of these are no doubt intentional, an exaggerated attempt to grab some publicity. Others, as you'll see, are honest (yet hilarious) mistakes. And some are just plain out of the ordinary. Enjoy!

Like the Goths sacking Rome, the 3-D invasion has arrived. No longer a kitschy gimmick, the technology has matured, and the leading consumer manufacturers are banking on it. Indeed, 3-D was the unofficial theme of CES 2010—3-D demos littered the show floor, and all the big players (with notable exceptions) unveiled 3-D products. Could 2010 be the year that 3-D finally takes off?
