Strange & Fun Gadgets From The Floor Of CES [Video]

During our tour of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, we came across some neat grown-up toys.

Trekking around the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show scouting the latest trends and tech can be tiring work. Fortunately it is very rewarding, and quite fun! You get to find things like the controversial iPad potty trainer, shown above. Here are just a few of the awesome gadgets Team PSFK got to play with.

These robotic ears from Neurowear react to the wearer’s brain waves and wiggle or perk up as the user focuses or relaxes. Our official PSFK tester in the video above, said she could control them by focusing on one thing vs. thinking of several things at once. The girl at the booth told her they’d be great to wear at a party so you could tell just how into a conversation someone was…but we’re not too sure that’s a good application of this tech. Neurowear makes a similar headband that is paired with a game to help kids learn how to focus.

Being on your feet all day can be pretty exhausting…what if we could just roll around the convention floor on a Solowheel? This gyro-stabilized electric unicycle is like a mini-Segway and seems like lots of fun. But at $1,800 per unit, we’ll just have to wait until some competitors come out and drive the price down.

While the Philips Hue lightbulb isn’t totally new, it is still a fun piece of tech that could totally change the mood of a room with a touch. From bright, productive whites to chilled-out purples and blues, this bulb would be an essential part of the modern modular living/work space.

And of course, what would a huge convention be without the parties? Team PSFK got to hang with Google as part of our Innovation @ CES Hangouts, and if you look closely at the photo below you can see a fellow partygoer rocking the infamous Google Glass headset. Maybe it was showing him relevant conversation starters or everyone’s contact information?


Thanks to everyone at CES and Google who made the show this year a blast for us! Can’t wait to see how everything we saw will develop over the coming months.
