Gadget Geeks Unite! Consumer Electronics Show Opens


Sanza Express is an mp3 player that is competitive with the iPod Shuffle. But it's actually better: it has a screen, so you can manipulate files on the go, instead of just accepting the Shuffle's order of things. It has a USB plug as part of the player that plugs directly into your computer -- no cord to lose. It holds 250 songs and it is $20 cheaper than the Shuffle.

Digital USB Pen by EPOS

Digital pens have been around for a while, but the fact that they all require expensive special paper for note taking is enough to turn any poor ramen-fed student against them. EPOS may just have the answer to this problem by using 3D positioning to track its movements on any surface. The small receiver that comes with the pen is placed on top of the surface and wirelessly records the pen's movements, and is then plugged into the computer's USB port to download the text and drawings. Another bonus: As the name implies, the receiver doubles as a flash drive.

Wireless Digital Music System by Sonos

Sonos is the first wireless, multi-room digital music system that lets you play digital music all over your house and control it all from the palm of your hand. With a wireless Sonos controller in hand, you'll have plug-and-play access to millions of songs from music services, Internet radio and your personal digital music collection. With Sonos Soneplayers in the rooms of your choice, you can play the same song in different rooms, or different songs in different rooms.
