Parents looking to offer some motivation to their kids to read will surely love the MagicBook that adds music, videos, sounds and 3D like images to regular paper books. The creators of the MagicBook app have plans to polish their apps further for better viewing before making it available to buyers early next year.
Last year, we saw light bulbs that could be controlled by your smartphone. This time LED bulbs just got way better. The Pulse Bulb not only acts as a light bulb, it also doubles as a speaker. One can play music from their Smartphones by connecting it to the bulb, to a maximum of six bulbs. Now, don’t scratch your head because that is what the CES is all about.
Most of us rely on medicines to relieve chronic nerve pains. Quell is a wearable passport-sized device that tells your body to release pain relieving opioids that helps with nerve conditions including fibromyalgia, sciatica and rheumatoid.

Netatmo introduced their latest camera, Welcome, that can detect a person’s face and inform the owner who has entered the house. It also has advanced features, including night vision and recorder. As a security gadget, this is a smart sleek device that certainly does what it is meant to, while also adding a flavor of urban chic to the house.
We have heard lots of horrifying stories about how busy parents often accidently forget their child in the back seat of their car and go about doing their duty. The Intel’s Smart clip is a small clip that is attached to the child’s car seat and it sends alerts to the parent’s phone if they detect a child in the seat when the car is not in motion for a while. While the idea may be simple, it can save lives.
For people who love to own a portable wireless speaker, Mu-so is definitely the best you can find. It has every connectivity option you can think of, and has six built-in speakers. The sound filtration takes place through 450 watts of amplification, and the volume knob is exceptionally built to impress.
It is a combination of headphones, fitness tracker and a heart rate monitor. It also records advanced fitness metrics and even though is still conceptual, this highly advanced and geeky looking wireless headphones are sure to make their way around in the mainstream market soon.
More than a product, this is a technological concept that uses advanced digital signal processing concept and directional speakers to create individual sound zones in the car. This basically means that passengers in the cars would have their own sound zones where they would be able to listen to their choice of music, take a Bluetooth phone call, and so on, without interfering with other passengers. As the technology is still primarily in the development phase, it is near completion and the company is in talks with the auto manufacturers to get the technology to future cars, starting as early as next year.
Now, with a camera like this one, you certainly can take the pictures like never before. Fitted with ultra wide angle lens, it has the capability to take 240 degrees of vertical video and 360 degrees of horizontal video. It basically means that when you watch the video, you can circle the cam angle and see what has been going around at that time. It has a 3 hours of battery life, which is sufficient for the waterproof sportscam this size. It is definitely the to-go sportscam when you are going outdoors, and its stylish design is sure to keep the users mesmerized.
