The Coolest Gadgets from CES 2012

Each year when CES rolls around there are inevitably a hoard of cool gadgets and gizmos that surface along with a bunch of pure crap. Today I wanted to check out some of the coolest gadgets that I spied at the show this year. As always, there were a ton of big screen TVs and 3D TVs at the show along with tons of tablets and other gear. The TV always catches my attention when CES rolls around because it is the gadget that I use most at home. Read on for some of my favorite gadgets of CES 2012.

1. Sony Crystal LED Display - Of all the TVs that were at the show, this was the set that caught my eye. Sure, that LG OLED set might have been thinner, but I don't think it will offer the same contrast and color that the Crystal set will provide. The slick TV has contrast too high to measure and that makes me giddy to see it in person considering many sets boast dynamic contrast into the millions to one today.

2.LG 55-inch OLED 55EM9600 HDTV - This was my second favorite HDTV that surfaced at CES this year. It's very thin and with an OLED screen measuring 55-inches, it will surely be very expensive too. If you want a set to hang on the wall, this may be the best offering yet. I suspect it will be at least a couple times more expensive than a normal LCD set of the same size.

3. Nokia Lumia 900 - One of the smartphones at the show that caught my eye wasn’t made by Apple or powered by Android. It was the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 900. I have used the iPhone and Android devices and find myself still looking for the perfect smartphone for me. I wonder if this might be the one.

4. Razer Project Fiona - A few years back before the tablet was so mainstream I would have laughed at the Razer Fiona concept. Today I think this is the coolest thing I have seen in gaming for a while. It uses a 10.1-inch screen with two gamepad like handles on each side to control your play. It's part computer part tablet, and all awesome. I hope this thing comes to market.

5. Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize - Of all the things to come out of the show, one of the most interesting for me wasn’t a gadget, it was a contest. The contest offers $10 million to the team that can create a working Star Trek tricorder to be used for medical treatment and diagnosis. I hope they can make this one happen.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
