(S2) New Tech

January is a big month for New Tech.  The CES 2013 is usually the debut event for new gadgets, media electronics, digital devices, and more.  It's always exciting to see what's out there!  I've combined  two GenYES students blog entries here, but several more  "new tech" ideas will appear in future blogs.   Have fun exploring!

1.  Check out these "new tech" devices first and compare the two.  Which interests you the most?

Hands Free Video Call Headset The Hands-Free Videophone captures the user’s face with three cameras in each of the left and right sides of the frames. The video sent to the other person is created by combining the pictures with a pre-rendered 3D model of the users face. 

HUD Google Glasses  These glasses have a front facing camera used to gather information and could aid in augmented reality apps.  It will also take pictures.  The spied prototype has a flash- perhaps for help at night, or maybe it was just a way to take better photos.  The camera is extremely small and likely only a few megapixels.

2.  Check out some other new technologies launched last week.  Which items do you think will significantly impact our lives?  Which ones do you personally like the best?
