Highlights from CES Unveiled

CES 2011 pre show party showed some cool gadgets

The best part of CES is the media parties, to get an early sneak peak of what hopefully become the stars of the show floor. The first party to hit last night was CES Unveiled. Here my two favorite product shown at the party.

Pretty cool is mophie's juice pack air for iPhone 4 delivers on-the-go power to iPhone 4 users via a light-weight and ultra-thin external rechargeable battery case. The protective form-fitting juice pack air essentially doubles the power available to rock, talk, surf, and send. The juice pack also features:

Highly condensed lithium polymer battery delivers an incredible amount of juice in a small form factor and features built in overcharge, short circuit and temperature protection.

Embedded electronics results in no signal interference with the iPhone 4.

Acoustic Sound Enhancement - The juice pack air design acts as a virtual speaker box, redirecting sound from the bottom of the iPhone 4 to the front, resulting in a richer, fuller sound quality.

An integrated LED status indicator tells you exactly how much "juice" is left and also displays how much time remains during the charging process.

500 milliamps fast charge technology, with an advanced battery for added safety, as well as 1500 mAh capacity.

And it includes a USB cable that enables you to simultaneously charge and sync your iPhone 4 to iTunes without having to remove it from the juice pack air. For more info please see their website at www.mophies.com.

Another highlight at CES Unveiled: The High Action Video Camera Snow Goggles, Summit Series HD 1080P. As an avid skier I very much like the Liquid Image Summit Series HD 1080P, snow goggles with an integrated 1080P HD camera. The goggles contain a 136 degree (full field of view) wide angle lens to capture all the action while skiing, boarding, sledding or snowmobiling. The hands free unit has a 12.0MP (4000 x 3000) interpolated still images camera mode and a video mode that records HD1080P Video (1920x1080) at a rate up to 30 frames per second as well as the High Action mode of HD720P video (1280x720) at a rate up to 60 frames per second. The Summit Series HD 1080P can hold a Micro SD/SDHC Card up to 32 GB and has Wind Guard Audio recording. The product includes a 4GB Micro SDHC card. With the use of a micro SD/SDHC card, the camera is capable of recording thousands of photos or hours of HD video. Files may be downloaded to a computer through the High Speed USB cable provided, or through a Micro SD/SDHC card. Rechargeable lithium battery records approximately 1.5-2 hours of video. Extra batteries sold separately. Images available on Flickr. I'd really like to try one of these next weekend in Bear Valley... more info on these cool goggles and other products please see at www.liquidimageco.com
