Another great day at CES.  The morning started with the FLIR press conference.  FLIR.com makes and sells a wide variety of thermal and light amplification products – primarily for military and industrial markets because their products cost $1000 and up…until this week.  They announced both a $250 visible light device , the FLIR FX and the FLIR One, a $350 thermal imaging accessory for the iPhone 5.  I have been a long time fan and follower of FLIR products and I have never seen the FLIR booth so crowded.  It is great to finally have a top notch supplier in the thermal/night vision consumer market at the ~$300 price point.

Like yesterday, I’ll just be posting brief write ups and images and details will follow soon.

I visited another French LiFi company – OLEDCOMM.com.  They have an online catalog, webstore and a product development SDK.  They also had an in-booth demonstration of an internet – LiFi telephony connection.

The people at ChromationSpec.com have an interesting lower cost but still high quality spectral measurement package.  Basically they can supply a robust, affordable core module for any industry that needs to accurately determine color of static objects.

FINsix.com showed a very compact (~2 C- cells plus cord) 65 watt power adapter for laptops.  It has an aluminum housing for heat dissipation and a projected retail price of $90.

RemoteReality.com demo’d a consumer level 360 degree lens.  They had one mounted to a GoPro camera and displayed the post processed video (to correct the curvature from the lens.)   Don’t think “fish eye”, think “lighthouse.”

Case Western Reserve University had some student-started products on display.  Ecospinners.com has a fuel cell powered bicycle and EveryKey.com has a BlueTooth 4 enabled login bracelet.

BonsaiLight.com demo’d their microenergy harvesting control switch.  Just the motion of turning a knob on the handheld controller generates enough energy that is captured and used to send a signal to a remote switch.  In this instance, an electrical lamp.  Microenergy harvesting is going to be BIG!

ZeroHourInnovations.com demo’d their modular high intensity flashlight.  They will soon have a storage compartment accessory so you can keep some items safe and dry.

Kromtech.net launched their PCKeeper product/support service.  It is subscription-based and they can protect, clean, optimize the operation of your PC remotely.  This includes  Registry evaluation and repair.  They are a Microsoft Gold Partner.

More to come!
