Odds & Ends: CES Day One


Each year, CES provides us with some of the most groundbreaking technology we have ever seen. Revolutionary gadgets that completely change the way we work, play, interact and live. Truly the world’s most amazing playground for grownups, here are a few of the coolest (although maybe not the most revolutionary) things we’ve seen on day one of CES 2012.

Parrot AR Drone 2.0
The AR Drone 2.0, a remote controlled helicopter that's controlled by your iOS or Android device, features two cameras that record 720p video at 30fps. Simply download the helicopter's app on your device, and you can compete against your friends in augmented-reality races in the sky. The AR Drone 2.0 will be available Q2 2012.

Remember when tailgating consisted of a tiny grill and a radio? We do. And those were some dark, dark days. But not anymore! Thanks to the DISH Network Tailgater, you can now watch HD content as you cook your hamburgers.
