You may have inferred that video was our only prerogative after todays posts; to the contrary! We were sure to take as many snapshots as we could while roaming the mad show floors of CES. Check out some of our favorite pieces of tech from today, and stay tuned for more coverage from CES 2011 right here at MaximumPC.com.
LG goes large with it’s 84″ 3D display.
We’re intrigued by Motrola’s new dual-proc phone. It plugs into a dumb laptop looking dock, and essentially turns your phone into a fully functioning laptop. That’s a welcome development in our book.
The guys at Origin had this ostentatious rig on display in Creative’s booth. The system is an overclocked, water-cooled PC on one half, and a water cooled Xbox 360 on the other. This photo is of the Xbox side. The Xbox drive bay has been moved up to the front of the system.
As an aside, the Origin PC guys told us that they’ve been able to achieve 5.0 GHz overclocks with ease on Intel’s next-gen Core i7 2600 part. That’s a good sign.
Just finished a meeting with the USB 3.0 coalition. Interesting stuff. There are now two different controllers with three more pending. The increased data rates is going to permit some interesting possibilities around hooking up external displays.
As an example, this device is capable of running 1080P video over a 9 foot USB cable run. Special versions of the cable – with built in repeaters – will permit even longer cable runs. In a few months, you’ll even be able to run two or three different external video sources off the same controller.
Panasonic shows off the 3D capabilities of it’s displays.

Audi’s e-tron garnered a lot of attention.
Fulton Innovations put on an impressive display of electromagnetic-based charging. A small magnetic field on this counter is capable of boiling water, operating a blender, and more…sans cables. It’s totally safe – we were able to place our hands in the field with no harm. The inductive power transmission can occur over distances of 4-6 inches.
Looks like something from the future. Impressive.
