Best of CES 2014 Ubergizmo Awards

Last week, we gave 10 Best of CES awards, and the physical trophies have already been delivered, but as a last look back on CES 2014, here’s the list for the record, and why we like those products or technologies. Here they are, in no particular order and see you next year for another crazy week in Las Vegas. Drop a comment to let us know what your favorite CES product was!

1/ Intel Edison

Best of CES 2014 Ubergizmo AwardsIntel wants to enter the wearable tech market and their Edison SD-Card sized computer may just get them there much faster. We have seen some pretty small computers in the past, some as small as a shirt button, but Intel’s is basically a PC shrunk into the size of a memory card. The choice for using the SD card format is astute because device makers can already have access to a wealth of options to build their hardware. While the card uses the SD Card physical format, it is not limited at all by the SD protocol, so developers are free to build any system they want. We can’t wait to see the first prototypes. (more…)

    Dive Is The $89 Alternative To The Oculus Rift

    We’re sure there are some of you guys out there who would love to get in on the Oculus Rift action. After all based on what we know and what we’ve seen, it is indeed a cool piece of technology. Unfortunately it is not available commercially at the moment, meaning that if you wanted to get your hands on one, you’d have to fork out $300 for its development kit, which is probably $300 ore expensive than what some are willing to pay. Well the good news is that if you don’t mind an alternative, Dive unveiled an Oculus Rift-like device at CES 2014 which can be had for $89, although we’re not sure if it might provide the same experience.

    Basically how dive works is that it is worn strapped to your head, but instead of having separate displays built into it like the Oculus Rift, Dive will instead rely on your smartphone to act as a display instead. There will be lenses built into it which is said to provide some kind of 3D effect, but according to the folks at Android Central who managed to check it out, they said it was not the same as the Oculus Rift. However like we said with Dive being priced at $89, it is a cheaper alternative to the Oculus Rift and for those interested in getting their hands on the device, you can do so by heading to its website for the details.
