We’ve decided it’s best if we just get the largest, most monstrous hub on the market, because having more ports than we need is a much nicer problem than having to acquire a new hub every few months. This puppy has 24 ports. (And you thought our 16 port hub was crazy!) Connect up to 24 USB devices with lightning fast 480Mbps transfer speeds. You can power this hub either directly from your computer or from an AC outlet. This means you can recharge your digital camera, flipcam, mp3 player, cell phone, everything you want, anywhere there’s a wall socket. This top grade hub features automatic over-current protection for each port, hot swapping plug-and-play connection, and the ability to daisy chain up to 127 USB devices if you’re really crazy.
2018 will bring the first human trials to use the gene-editing technology. A company called Crispr Therapeutics, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, will use Crispr to fix a genetic defect in patients with an inherited blood disorder called beta thalassemia. Researchers at Stanford School of Medicine are also moving a Crispr treatment for sickle-cell disease to clinical trials.
Makani’s enormous “energy kite” is a new type of turbine that generates electricity by flying against the wind in acrobatic loops while tethered to the ground. As the kite flies around, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them. The power generated on board travels down the tether to the grid. The design allows for the system to be installed in parts of the world where regular wind turbines aren’t economically viable or physically possible. The latest prototype can generate enough energy to power to 300 homes.
There’s a countably infinite supply of noise-cancelling headphones at CES, but these manage to rise above the noise. You can set the Hero headphones to allow certain voices through and block everything else; while Sidekick is a version of them that you fit on your existing headphones.

Acoustic design: Closed | Weight: N/A | Cable length: 4.6 feet | Frequency response: 16-22,000Hz | Drivers: N/A | Driver type: Dynamic | Sensitivity: N/A | Impedance: 28 ohms | Battery life: 25+ hours | Wireless range: 30+ feet | NFC: Yes
As a last resort, you can ‘refresh’ your Windows 10 installation, which is much the same as reinstalling the operating system. Your documents won’t be affected, but you’ll need to reinstall any applications that aren’t part of Windows.
Sony has come up with that it deems to be the world’s first truly wireless noise cancelling sports headphones, in the form of the WF-SP700N, and the WI-SP600N and WI-SP500 in-ear sports headphones. All three of them will boast of splash-proof designs in order to let the wearer enjoy sound while they are on the move. Targeting the active yet stylish music lover, the WF-SP700N truly wireless and WI-SP600N in-ear headphones will offer wireless noise cancelling in a manner that noise cancelling has not been done before, including in a high intensity cardio class or while walking or jogging. As for the WI-SP500 in-ear headphones, it will allow the wearer to train for longer with up to eight hours of battery life on a full charge, certainly more than enough time for you to complete a marathon and still have juice to spare!
If you’re still not convinced that the days of buying large, cumbersome consoles to get the best gaming performance are over, look no further than the Xbox One X. Microsoft’s latest console crams six teraflops and native 4K gaming support into a sleek package, making it the choice console for players who want screaming performance for less than the price of a high-end gaming PC.
The first 8K (7,680×4,320-pixel) display, this 32-inch monitor crams in enough resolution to retouch the hairs off a model’s face and nudge your pixels precisely in Adobe Illustrator. It doesn’t match that by covering the entire Rec 2020 color space — it’s only 10-bit color, not 12-bit — and it’s not clear whether it stores the color profiles in hardware or not, but you can’t expect everything at once. For $5,000, though, Dell should throw in the calibrator for free.
The Verizon MiFi Jetpack 4G LTE AC791L mobile hotspot is available for $49.99 from Verizon of about with a two year contract or $200 from other retailers without a contract.

LG kicked things off on Sunday with a TV from the realm of science fiction — a 65-inch 4K OLED display that rolls into a tube, like an upside down window shade. Imagine it at the foot of your four-poster bed or the end of your luxury bath. We can dream that this futuristic boob tube will hit the market soon, but LG hasn’t announced pricing or availability, let alone an explanation of how the thing actually works.
Endless gets its cool cred in part from its intentions. The Endless computers are small, cheap and optimized for areas where internet access is unpredictable. This year’s models have a more sophisticated design than its Mini plastic ball. Though they don’t run a standard operation system, they come piled with applications. Plus, the systems will also work with its Endless Code initiative, a preinstalled package of tutorials and tools for teenage-level prospective coders.
The Moov Now doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you would associate with a fitness tracker. It doesn’t have GPS tracking, it doesn’t even have a screen; but what it does have is a cheap price tag and six-month battery life. Yes, you read that right: six months.
If you selected an iPhone for T-Mobile, it will come with the appropriate nano-SIM, but you’ll need to contact T-Mobile or visit an Apple Store to activate your iPhone. If you selected the SIM-free iPhone, you’ll need to insert your own nano-SIM card or obtain one from the supported carrier of your choice and activate it in order to use your iPhone.
