Have you noticed a suspiciously high number of available outlets at your favorite coffee spot this week? It could be because all the diehard tech fiends are in Las Vegas this week for the Consumer Electronics Show. There are a lot of amazing and innovative gadgets that are introduced to the world at CES, but for every fancy shmancy TV, there is bound to be a shake weight iPod dock. Ok, I might actually buy that. Here is a list of the wackiest gadgets so far.
Endliss iPhone Case
This might be the gadget equivalent of back boobs. This iPhone case is designed to light up at different notifications when your phone is turned over. I consider myself a pretty big attention whore and even I can't condone this. Why don't you just set an alarm every five minutes that says, "Look at me! Look at me!" The only reason I can imagine having this is to design a custom alert for dick pics.
This iPhone app linked massage vest is a way for you to "feel the music" on your favorite playlists, aka get felt up while listening to "Buzz Ballads." This massaging circle scarf is still accepting donations on Kickstarter for those of you who find it to be less ridiculous than I do.
Horizon IdeaCentre Table PC by Lenovo
This 27" "tablet" is exactly what it looks like. I'll admit that having two or more people use this beast at once is pretty cool, but who wants a tablet that's too heavy to carry without a spotter? And we're all thinking it: overcompensating much?
This mounted tripod is designed to allow you hands-free iPad viewing, but weighs three pounds nine ounces. Steadysnake.com boasts that it allows users to "watch movies without your hands getting tired!" That pretty much obliterated any doubt in my mind that this isn't a way to help seniors watch porn.
At first I was like, why is this vibrator shaped like a fork? It turns out that this electronic fork helps you eat healthier by flashing indicator lights and vibrating gently when you are eating too quickly. I have a feeling this gadget will have me avoiding forks all together. HAPILABS can't help me lose weight if I only eat Pizza Rolls.
