Found at CES: ... a sewing machine?

Random products you may not expect to find at the 2008 CES

Sure there are flashy tvs, phones that vie for the iPhone's status, more flat screens than you can shake a stick at, but at today's CES sneak-peak, I noticed some of the more random things at CES 2008 that caught my attention:

Juice This!

Plug it in, Plug it in...

Duracell, battery manufacturer galore, is making plugging in easier with these plug-in-able packs. Maybe it's me, but with brown-outs, black-outs and white-outs lately, it may be worthwhile to think about.

Sew This!

Maybe it's Project Runway's fault, but I even saw Brothersewing machines at CES. Maybe they're Wi-Fi enabled or have Tim Gunn telling you that it's "make it work time" on mp3 loop.

Shred it!

Shred Shred Shred

A bevy of shredders of every shape, color and size, for those of you who still leave paper trails of personal information laying around.
