LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 -
The Cult of Mac staff invaded Show Stoppers last night at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. Along with some free buffet food and an endless supply of booze, there were products galore. Some were neat. A lot were horrible. But the event was a lot of fun.
Here is a small sampling of the sights of CES Showstoppers last night:
The $129.00 Mercedes-Benz SLC AMG Bluetooth remote controlled car plays music through speakers in its doors that move to the music. Works on any iPhone/iPad/iPod device and is First of its kind according to the sales rep. from the company Silverlit.
These skateboard guys were enthusiastically promoting the $650 maple ZBOARD skateboard that moves as you do by leaning on black buttons. They are totally old school though. No Apps or interactive iPads.
This was the coolest item at the show. Too bad it has no Mac angle. It’s an inflatable solar power lantern with three settings and it lasts 6-12 hours on one full charge. The company MPOWERD is giving back with a special offer. Buy one lantern at $19.99 and they will give another lantern to a third world country. Also available on Amazon.
