The Best of Imaging at CEA Line Shows
Among their impressive array of slick little mobile accessories Scosche unveiled the world's first dash-mount kit for the new Apple iPad. Meant to take the place of a standard car radio, the iKit both charges the iPad through a USB port and enables audio usage of the device, while also sporting a rotating mounting system. It can be used to listen to satellite radio and Pandora, as well as the user's own personal iPad library through iTunes. The system can also pivot the iPad towards the passenger, giving them access to Web surfing and all other iPad functions.
Though not exactly an imaging company, MoBeam is a Cupertino, Ca-based company that offers up technology that enhances the “digital wallet” theory and their new numi key device gives consumers the opportunity to store all of their loyalty/frequent shopper cards on one digital device that can be used at any checkout lane with a laser bar code scanner. The numi key’s patented technology converts any bar code to light that imitates a bar code when beamed into any existing laser bar code scanner. The company plans on expanding the tech to offer digital coupons and gift cards on the numi key as well. Retailers will want to take a closer look at this nifty little device.
It certainly stands to reason that you have to keep all these great digital gadgets clean and CEA Line Shows offered up a cool (and kinda gooey) solution on that front as well as the makers of CyberClean demo’d their newly advanced patented high-tech cleaning compound for a wide array of CE devices. CyberClean formula is specifically formulated to catch dirt and kill germs on all devices and surfaces. The gel-like product, unlike traditional cloths, is reusable and biodegradable with an environmentally friendly membrane. Cyber Clean cleans cavities, where conventional cleaners fail, and does not leave any residue.
