CNET UK Podcast 270: Best of CES 2012 Live from Las Vegas

The team are in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, and they recorded a very special episode on the CNET stage at the show.

This week we have a very special podcast for you. The team are in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, and they recorded a very special episode on the CNET stage at the show.

Join Jason, Luke and special guest Bridget Carey, host of the wonderful daily news show Loaded as they take a whistlestop tour through the very best bits of the show.

CES is enormous. There are 2,700 exhibitors and about 140,000 visitors, so it's not easy to pull themes out, but the team has a go.

One of the big talking points is smart TVs . All the big TV manufacturers have announced TVs with new software designed to make it easier to download video, and many of them are voice controlled.

Gesture control has also been popular, with built-in cameras monitoring your every move and responding to pre-defined gestures, doing things like changing the channel and the volume.

Ultrabooks have also been on show , and the team have a good chat about how large a laptop can be before it's considered to be an ultrabook.

With plenty of other gadgets mentioned from around the show, together with Luke, Jason and Bridget's favourite products to round things off, there's plenty to like here. Have a listen and keep an eye on Crave for the video version soon too.
