Vuzix Smart Glasses M100

Although the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is still two days away, Sunday afternoon (Las Vegas time) played host to the CES Unveiled event, an early sneak peek of what can be expected from the show itself. Here are some of the things that caught our eye.

Vuzix, the creator of a number of wearable display devices, was showing the prototype of this wearable smartphone display, competing heavily with Google Glass. Since then, it has released an SDK for devs, and handed out a few specs: the M100 will shoot 720p video, runs Android 4.0, has GPS and Wi-Fi and has a WQVGA res display.

Sphero

Sphero, the remote-controlled robot ball, is not exactly new, but its creator, Orbotix, is showing it off again with a host of new AR games. Orbotix reckon the new games are faster and "smarter", and give consumers the "latest in AR technology". We will say this: Sphero is still heaps of fun to play around with.

Ion Job Rocker

Do you take your portable music seriously? So does Ion, with the Job Rocker being one of the bigger and gutsier speakers we've seen. Ion also had the Clipster on display — a carabiner-style portable speaker that you can clip on to your belt or bag. And annoy people on trains with.

Trakdot Luggage

Trakdot is a cellular-based device that can track your luggage for you. By not using GPS, Globaltrak has managed to create a device that's airline compliant. Pop this in your bag, and you'll get a text telling you which city your bag is in. It's great if you're waiting at an empty baggage carousel.
