Lenovo caught our attention with this 55in 1080p smart TV for a couple of reasons. First, its got an In-Plane Switching (IPS) LCD panel, and that's the same near-OLED quality tech used in the iPad and other tablets. Second, it runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's got a 5Mp camera on the front for video calling. All it needs is multi-touch and it'd be the world's biggest tablet. Alas, Lenovo didn't say when this IPTV-oriented offering will be out over here.
Available Now, if you live in China

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0
Parrot controlled the CES airspace with the latest version of its AR.Drone quadricopter, a four-engine, eight-blade toy chopper controlled through its own Wi-Fi network with an Android or iOS smartphone. We loved the original, and the new model improves on it with better, 720p HD on-board cameras; a more aerodynamic design; and a superior control systems. This one you'll be able to create your own apps for too, thanks to the software development kit Parrot plans to post when the 2.0 debuts.
Available Spring 2012

Is this a trick question...?
High end audio company Behringer?
Oh come on! Behringer is not high end. They make low cost, let's say "equivalents" of other people's designs. Good value for money, but not high end.
Anyone but Sony.
FTR, the Sony boycott isn't over yet.
To sum up
So the best from CES - the world's biggest gadget show - was a bunch of computers and tellies. With a (admittedly veeeeery cool) RC helicopter and toy guitar to mix it up a bit.
That Behringer iAxe makes me SO mad.
There's a perfectly good bit of technology already available that allows people to learn the guitar and it's called a guitar. You can buy for £99 with an amplifier from that well known auction site! It has touch and feel and the required tactile feedback from the strings. Play the iAxe and all you're learning to do is play the iAxe not a guitar. I'm off to placate my Les Paul and my Strat now ... they're moaning in pain!
