The quirky side of CESAs the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas enters its third day, everyone has already fallen in love with those gorgeous, thin televisions. But as CNET'S Kara Tsuboi reports, there's a whole other side to the show that's rarely seen. Booth space...
Speaker: At CES, everyone expects to see the big names, Panasonic, Sony, Microsoft, Intel, but what are the depths of a Las Vegas Convention Center and you'll realized the majority of the 2,800 vendors are companies you've never heard of and more often than not, their goods on display are not novel, bizarre, but downright working. Speaker: (Easier of the Day?) is so awesome because everything is heated. It's very comfortable. It takes care of you. Speaker: And with free cases for smartphones, I'd make it waterproof, shockproof, (turfproof?), snowproof. Speaker: This is the myType Bluetooth Keyboard. Keys here are folding to the empty space here. So when you fold it up, the keys (inter-lift?). Speaker: Get / of the iPad and then put the SuperShow on it and then... Speaker: Oh, that makes me nervous to watch. Speaker: And it bounces. Speaker: Here's a product that you could actually imagine in universities or boad rooms around the world, a digital white board. Speaker: As I write it, this pen is gonna read like the different coordinates and then that's gonna send like a boot to signal to the computer which is wired into the projector and that... that's how it's gonna work. Speaker: Just when you think you've seen it all at CES, you stumble upon something like this. A rechargeable vapor cigar, that's good for a thousand puffs before the next charge. Speaker: All over CES, deals are being made and partnerships born, so while a lot of these gadgets are prototypes, they could be coming soon to a retailer near you.
