BodyMedia, which makes the FIT armband you see pictured, has been in the body-tracking biz for twelve years now. Now the company is teaming up with the brains over at IBM, and when their powers combine, you get a system that not only knows how unhealthy you are, but can help reverse the trend.
Murata isn't in the business of making electronics. Rather, they're one of the companies that make all the stuff that makes electronics possible. To that end, they've come up with some cool concepts to demonstrate what they've been working on lately, like this solar-powered flexible remote control.
This prototype cellphone, from KDDI Labs and Kyocera, doesn't have a speaker. It doesn't need one. Put it up against your head and it sounds just like a regular phone with a speaker in it, and if you happen to be wearing industrial ear protection, it'll work perfectly straight through that, too.
We swung by Sony's booth and got a look at two encased concepts that offer a glimpse of what's in store for the future of mobile computing. Needless to say, they're freakin' awesome.

Last year Razer wowed CES goes with its 7-inch Intel Atom-powered Switchblade gaming PC that never made it out of the prototype phase. This year it's Project Fiona, a gaming tablet that runs full PC games. Is the breakfast tray-looking slab the ultimate in portable gaming tech? Our hands-on is just a click away.
A few people at CES this year were showing off 4K LCD TVs, which are four times the standard HD resolution that we're all used to by now. Yawn. Sharp, on the other hand, has an 8K LCD, which is sixteen times HD. It's glorious.
MakerBot's Thing-O-Matic 3D printer is totally worth it. We already established that. How can the company improve on its homemade toy-printing potential? By making it bigger and more powerful. That and giving it a cool name like "The Replicator."
It's a rare day around here when we get excited about something as potentially mundane as a pair of Bluetooth headphones. Parrot has really gotten creative with Zik, though, and the headphones are packed with futuristic features that you'll likely end up using every single day.
Look who we spotted from the future! It doesn't have a flux capacitor and Doc Brown wasn't sitting in the driver's seat, but DMC's electric DeLorean is still looking as futuristic as it did in the '80s.
