Jim Barry from the Consumer Electronics Association

Jim Barry, the Digital Answer Man from the Consumer Electronics Association visited with Andy Taylor and Mark Stine on KMSB Fox 11 Daybreak to share some of the latest gadgets and talk about the trends during the show.

We also get a chance to first hand see what some of the awesome new technology we may see this year or coming in the next few years!

We talked about the growth in Technology on our vehicles and some of the announcements focused on this technology inside vehicles!

From the Mobile In Car, we talked about Mobile Wearable Technology. Some of the Products we took a look at in this first segment were:

The Scosche Rhythm  – This wearable technology allows you to wear this pulse monitor to check and manage your pulse rate, calories burned during a workout, the distance of your workout and of course others such as speed, rate or repetition and your pace.  Many people listen to music while working out and The Rhythm allows you to not only monitor your workout pattern but at the same time control your music within the Rhythm interface.  More Info at http://www.scosche.com/rhythm

The FitBit Flex – This Wearable technology not only helps to monitor your activity but can be used to monitor your sleep! The FitBit can monitor how often you wake up, how long you slept and can even gently wake you up with a slight vibration in the wrist unit! The FitBit Flex doesn’t just report, it gives you goals to hit. Pre set your activity levels and as you approach these goals, LED lights will illuminate to show you are working towards your goal!

The Tinke from Zensorium – In the Wearable Health category we also took a look at the Zensorium Tinke which plugs directly into your iOS or Android Device and then monitors your Heart and Respiratory Rate as well as a few others checks for keeping you aware of your wellness and fitness.  You can find more info at http://www.zensorium.com/tinke/

During the segment we also talked about Wireless Technology with Wireless Speakers, one that looked like a large coffee mug from iCreation called the Speecup. It’s design makes it not only handy to fit into a coffee cup holder in a car or as Mark Stine put it, In a golf cart – great for the ride on the greens  but also resonates some great sound in this small form. The Speecup also can be used with gesture technology which means not having to fumble to push a button, a gesture of the hand across the top can perform functions such as answering a call with this Bluetooth connected device.

Travel In Style With The MobileEdge Line

When traveling with the laptop it can be sometimes cumbersome to carry all of the components and still sport style and personality.  Many of the laptop bags and totes on the market have a very industrial look to them and scream laptop! For many women that like to accessorize and have stylish designs this can be a bit of a challenge to find.

MobileEdge has the solution with its recent introduction of a Herringbone design of a laptop bag which not only looks good but is very functional. The company backs the design and function with a Lifetime Warranty. Inside the line, users will find 3 different types of bags. A Small Design which retails for around 99.99 and features room for ultra portables, padding in the compartment for safer travel with the device, an additional poly fur lined pocket for the addition of a tablet or iPad, a separate accordion file section and a matching clutch for a variety of accessories. I loved the fact that the bag also includes a zip down workstation which allows access to cell phones, memory sticks and even a place to store keys. It is a great solution to a mobile office and having the needed items on hand.

The Larger version fits some of the larger laptops, desktop replacements and the features listed above. The SRP for the larger bag is only an increase of about 20.00 from the small bag. If you are looking for a simple but stylish solution for your Ultra or tablet, Mobile Edge also carries a tote designed for around for a SRP of 59.99. Even with its smaller size, this tote still features a mobile workstation inside of it for easy access to cell, memory cards, pens and even keys. The tote features a front pouch for carrying magazines and material for the traveler. We find the same back type pocket on the small and large bags as well.

MobileEdge also produces products for Men as well as some awesome accessories for the mobile user . We found products from a USB 10 Key Keyboard add on to a mobile power add on for your car.
