I have no idea how many other booth bands were at CES, but none could have been worse than this. Let it serve as a friendly reminder that no amount of CES exposure is worth your dignity.
Panasonic's designers cooked up this concept camera that users wear like a set of behind-the-head earbuds. I like the fact that it packs wi-fi, letting your smartphone record or stream everything your third eye is seeing.
Okay, okay, so it's not a forklift. Whatever it is, that can't be comfy. But sometimes, you've just gotta konk. I feel you, fellas. I feel you.
It's tough out there.
When you encounter something as absurd as an iPod dock the size of a pony, what else is there to do but climb on it? Sadly, the fellows at Behringer's CES booth said no. So I danced, danced, danced.

eCoupled is known for their inductive charging solutions where you can just plop your phone down on a table and it will immediately start topping off its battery. But in recent years at CES they've been coming up with slick demos showing alternate ways the technology can be used.
Of all the crushingly depressing booths sprinkled throughout CES, we've successfully identified the saddest. By far. Congratulations, IMP-EXP Executive! You make me want to cry.
When I'm shopping for a new fridge (obviously a frequent occasion) I'm not interested in how much ice it can produce every hour, how crisp it would keep the vegetables I'm probably supposed to be eating, or even how much it will reduce my electricity bill.
How would you roll if you were a big baller CEO of one of the world's largest electronics companies? If you're Monster Cable CEO Noel Lee, on a tricked out gold-rimmed Segway of course. Oh, and look, a Segway-strapped admirer!
This chrome nightmare was heckling CES attendees, trying to coax them into TP-Link's booth to check out the company's wireless network wares. I generally like the lack of 'booth babes' at CES, since it means booths are staffed with personnel who actually know something about the products on display.
