Every January, the consumer electronics industry (and those of us who write about it for a living) descend on Las Vegas for the undisputed Champion of American trade shows. CES has come to mean many things to many people, and let's be honest here -- most of us are a little conflicted. After all, th

CES is Engadget's biggest event of the year, but for the most part we don't have any requirements on what editors should bring other than \"a laptop\" and \"a camera.\" That means there's usually quite an array of devices and tools on hand -- and every year we try some new things that make an immediate

While certainly less \"depressed\" than last year's recession-tainted affair, CES 2010 was a busy show without a stand-out, knock-em-down, blockbuster release. Last year the Pre stole the spotlight, while this year we were more focused on technologies and concepts like 3D, tablets and e-books. That s

Not sure how we missed this one in all the excitement at CES -- well, yeah we can -- but right up there with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Disney's A Christmas Carol, Dreamworks will offer Monsters vs. Aliens as its first 3D Blu-ray title (fuzzy picture of the back and full pr after the bre

Sherwood has been running with the network connectivity ball ever since it adopted Verismo's VuNow hardware into its receivers. We dropped by their booth before departing CES to get a quick look at the functionality in action (video embedded after the break), plus put our hands and eyes on the comp

While most HDTV manufactures are focused on being thin and 3D, Panasonic still recognizes the importance of having great contrast and deep blacks. Hidden away in the Panasonic booth we pulled back the curtain on a contrast demo and walked away impressed. Now obviously black levels are very hard to

We searched high and low on the show floor for signs of tru2way and in the back of the Panasonic booth we found the new set-back box we told you about. The box uses the VESA mounting holes so it might make it tough to use with some wall mounts. It wasn't a working demo so we didn't get to see how

What happens when you let all comers batter, submerge, and otherwise abuse your so-called \"unbreakable\" handsets on the show floor at CES? Well, sometimes they break -- as a certain BBC News video makes abundantly clear. Are you ready for the truth? Hit the source link. [Thanks to everyone who sen

XStreamHD is going to be launching in a few months so of course we stopped by the booth to get a quick look. The user interface is modern and sleek with a focus on cover art -- it seemed snappy from our brief time with it. One thing we missed when we let you know about the ability to pre-order is t

Add one more piece of tech to your glasses vs. glassless 3D display battlemap, as TCL was showing off this autostereoscopic display in an odd reflective frame at its CES booth. Around the corner from a conventional RealD shutter glasses setup, it whipped through several animated 3D renderings simil

You didn't think CES was over, did you? Saving a true gamer's delight for last, we went along to meet with Microvision's reps today and were introduced to its PicoP laser projector and gun gaming peripheral. The projection tech employed here is unique, as each pixel (848 x 480 resolution) is itself
