BACK­STAGE BEAU­TIES

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH - BY NIDHI SIN­GAL IN LAS VE­GAS

Ev­ery year, the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show in Las Ve­gas, USA, de­fines the com­ing year in terms of new prod­ucts and new tech­nolo­gies. Like tablets last year, the 2012 event read the fu­ture as be­ing dom­i­nated by new tele­vi­sions (OLED and 4K, which has a res­o­lu­tion four times that of HD), Ul­tra­books (su­per­slim In­tel-led lap­tops), quad-core chips for tablets and smart­phones and Mi­crosoft’s new Win­dows 8 op­er­at­ing sys­tem for PCS and lap­tops. But be­yond these reg­u­lars, we also es­pied a melange of in­no­va­tive, funky, cool yet util­ity-driven gad­gets rang­ing from apps to wrist watches and from wire­less charg­ing to ro­bots. Here are a few that caught our at­ten­tion.
