Travis here, back in freezing Kansas. I was given the amazing opportunity to be one of Gizmodo's writers covering CES and here are some of the gems that really caught my eye.

Water-cooled Xbox 360 ‚ÄĒ Since I picked up my 360 a couple of weeks ago it seems that I have turned into one of those overly-excited fanboys. You know, "PS3 SUX LOL!!!11" Seeing an upcoming company like Cool IT installing a water-cooling system into an Xbox 360 just tickled me pink.

Hannspree's LCD TVs ‚ÄĒ Even though the Hannspree rep was kind of a cock to Joel and me about Gizmodo's past coverage of their Buzz Lightyear TV, their TVs were awesome. Awesome in a way that isn t so much practical, but looks cool as hell and could fit into a uniquely designed room, primarily kids' rooms. They did release an LCD that included these side-attached straps that folded around to protect the screen and double as a carrying case.

The Sony E-Reader ‚ÄĒ Hell, this thing was so cool we even had another post about it. This is the future, kids. It looks amazing, clean, crisp, easy to read, and will begin at a moderate price tag. At CES they were displaying lots of demos that included regular books and manga, but I am excited to see the textbook applications in the future.

Robosapien Media ‚ÄĒ These things may seem a little gimmicky at first, but after getting to play with the prototype RS Media I have became a fan. This thing can fully interact with your PC to become a customizable MP3-playing robot. Team this up with the other new Robosapiens and the Lego Mindstorm NXT for a 2006 full of badass consumer robots.
