Hot new products from New York's CE Week (pictures)
At 2014's CE Week here in Manhattan, we got to see some new products, some products we saw back at CES in January, and some other funky stuff.
At this year's CE Week, which takes place in New York, we got to see some new products we'd never seen before, some products we saw back at CES in January that are just about to be released now, and some other funky stuff that's been on the market for a little while.
As far as new stuff goes, JBL released a series of affordable Bluetooth headphones at the show, including the E40 BT (left) and sweat-proof Reflect BT (right), both of which are available in the US (for $100) and the UK (£80).
Otterbox has a new Mophie competitor, the Resurgence (US-only, $100), which has swappable back covers, doubles the battery life of your iPhone 5/5S, and has a little bit of that extra Otterbox protection.
Unu has announced its new line of Ultrapak fast-charging battery packs with "8x faster charging speed." Unu says that a 15-minute charge will give you enough juice to keep your smartphone going all day.
The Tour sells for $99.99 and the smaller Go goes for $59.99. Both ship on June 30th.
The Voyce, a health monitor for your dog that we first saw at CES in January, will soon hit the market. In the US, you have to buy the $299 high-tech collar -- it will come in multiple sizes -- and also subscribe to a $15/month service that automatically tracks your dog's stats.
Braven is billing its $129.99 BRV-Bank as the "world's first Bluetooth-enabled, USB-controlled, ultra-rugged power bank." Inside IPX5 water-resistant rubber exterior you'll find a 6,000mAh battery. It also comes equipped with a flashlight that can be remotely activated with the company's free Remote Battery Monitor app (see next slide).
For those who want to go old-school, there's the Brick, which works as a Bluetooth speakerphone and even accepts its own SIM card if you want to go mobile and be the coolest retro guy (or gal) on the block.
If you're interested in getting into 3D printing, you may also want a 3D scanner. At only $579 (converted, about £340 or AU$615), Matter and Form bills its scanner as the first "truly affordable" 3D scanner.
