CNET News Video: Hands on with CES toys

2:16 /

At CES 2012, the category of lifestyle tech seems bigger than ever. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got her hands on fun toys for families and fitness.

Hey, everyone. I'm Cara Savoy, CNET.com with a quick look at some really cool family friendly tech that I've seen so far at CES. Let's start with this guy. This is the inflatable cube and it's perfect for family's with small children. You simply attach your iPad and then this cube is indestructible. Your kids can play with it or even (prop?) it, so they can watch a movie of it. Pretty cool and it sells for $35. Since this is start of the New Year, so many of us have New Year's resolutions, to lose weight and stay in shape. Well, these devices from Body Media Fit can help yo do that. This is the core arm band. The idea is that you wear it 23/7, that's almost a full day and saves all of your personal data. We're taking steps walked, calories burned, body temperature, all to your computer or your smartphone wirelessly. Pretty amazing. This guy which is releasing later this year is a patch that you would have fixed your arm and then keep on for up to 7 days and it too would monitor up to 5,000 different bodymetrix. Amazing. Now, in the whole team of wanting to lose weight and stay in shape. The same people who brought us the first wireless adult scale, Withings has now delivered a baby scale. Check this guy out. Place the baby on the scale and it will give you an accurate read out within a few grams or ounces. And it also syncs all of the data wiressly to either your smartphone of a website. You can also link it with it your Facebook or Twitter account. Pretty amazing. And finally, I gotta show you this device. This is so great for people who are maybe a little forgetful of misplacings. You simply attach the case to your smartphone and attach these little beacons also the name of the company to your purse, your keys, your dog, your child, you name it. Say I wanted to locate my purse, tap of a few buttons and within seconds, the little beacon will locate exactly where I misplaced my purse. Very cool stuff. And again, just as small sampling of all the amazing cool techy innovations here at CES this year. I'm Cara Savoy, CNET.com.
