Micro Center’s buyers were out in force this week at CES  in Las Vegas.  With all of the CES coverage, it’s hard not to get lost in all the hubbub. That’s why I have taken a few of the most interesting things we have seen so far to showcase what the future of technology looks like!

Nvidia Project Shield

Nvidia Project Shield

The appearnace of the Nvidia Project Shield is downright awesome. It looks like an Xbox and a Gameboy had a baby. The Shield is a portable android gaming device with a screen that flips up from the controller. I’ve seen some FPS games played on this bad boy and it looks just as good as if you were playing on a console. Sure, there are some flaws to it. It’s a little clunky looking, but it’s a step in a new direction for gaming that can only mean good news for gamers. Project Shield is due for retail to the public during the 2nd quarter this year.

CubeX 3D Printer

The CubeX 3D Printer is one of the coolest things I have seen thus far and looks like the future of basically everything. The CubeX literally prints objects made of plastic. There have been other 3D printers before but the CubeX can print much larger objects. Pretty soon we will probably be printing our own household items. The CubeX 3D is for sale now and ships starting February.


Golden-i headset

The Golden-I is probably the coolest thing around if you are a firefighter, police officer, or paramedic. Basically it’s a mini hands free computer, headset, and video camera. Specs show that it will help these heroes stay alive as well as perform their jobs better.

What are the coolest products you have seen revealed at CES? What would you buy? SOUND OFF!
