Gadgets For Weirdos From CES 2011
These weird or you can say cool gadgets does not follow trends or a subculture. A true ‘weirdo’ will go for these gadgets.The person buying these gadgets does not actually conform to a stereotype and shouldn’t be labled.
Here are some of the weirdest gadgets from CES 2011 that we picked for TechPaparazzi readers.
I Am T-Pain Microphone
Pictured here with T-Pain is a microphone that auto-tunes you like the hip-hop artist.
The TV Hat
The Mad Hatter’s got nothing on OLED-equipped headgear from Recom. The company claims that Verizon Wireless and Gamestop saw 15 percent higher conversions when fitting their employees with tiny video screens.
Ion’s iCade for iPad
The iCade was originally a fictional product, mocked up by gadget seller ThinkGeek as an April Fool’s joke. But people loved the idea, so Ion had the iPad arcade cabinet created for real.
RotorConcept’s Chopper With Camera
Yup, it’s a remote-controlled helicopter, which is impressive enough on its own, but this one from RotorConcept has a techie twist: On board is a 720-by-480 resolution video camera, which can wirelessly provide a live feed to a PC.
Seal Shield Washable Keyboards, Mouses
These dishwasher-friendly PC peripherals have been on the market for years, but seeing a keyboard safely dunked into a bucket of water never gets old.
Breffo Spider PodiumTablet
One of the cleverest tablet stands I’ve seen is also one of the creepiest. Just keep most of the legs out of sight, and no one will think you’ve re-purposed a dead, gigantic spider for technological purposes.
Steve Jobs iPad Sticker
Sphero by Orbotix
Just a rolling ball remote-controlled by iOS or Android devices, the best part about Sphero is the boost button, for when you need that extra oomph. I had a great time trying — and failing miserably — to jump a small ramp that Orbotix had set up on floor. It should be out by year-end for less than $100.
