Wireless HDTV, a Facebook rabbit, PC-MAC file sharing made simple, 1000 speed Compact Flash cards, the best Nikon yet – D4, hi-def video from a remote controlled helicopter, radar protection and GPS pet retrieval are just some of what’s in store for this “gotta-have” collection from CES.
The 2012 Consumer Electronics Show closed yesterday in Las Vegas, but you’ll be seeing many of the products introduced at the show in the coming months on your store shelves. Here are another dozen that caught my eye as I wandered the 35 football field’s worth of exhibits.
