8 Products to See at CES 2013 Just for Fun

Many CE Pros attend International CES just for fun, seeking cool and nerdy stuff just for themselves. Check these out at CES 2013.


8 fun and intriguing products from International CES 2013 including these exhibitors and Innovations winners: Motorola, Liquid Image, Standzout, Moneual, Ecovacs, PiQx, Monster and Variable Technologies.

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a massive event, and I’m not professionally interested in about 97% of it – the gizmos, the car stuff, the blinky stuff, the chipsets, the OEMs ….

But sometimes I’m personally interested in some of the goodies just for fun. Here are a few items I stumbled across pre-show.

Who knows, maybe one of them will walk away with my “Best Thing” nod, like the MakerBot 3D Printer I coveted at CES 2011.

Note that not all of these companies have booths at CES. Some have meeting rooms; others can be found in the CES Innovations 2013 showcase.

Check out the slideshow below featuring these eight products:

Monster LLC: Find My Stuff
Variable Technologies: NODE
piQx Imaging: XCanex
Ecovacs Robotics: Winbot 7
Moneual: Touch Table PC
Standzout: Wallmate
Liquid Image: Apex HD +
Motorola: HC1 Headset Computer
