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.

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0

RH Numbers

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.
