KickCast Rewind: Pebble Watch

KickCast-Rewind-Bumper

After months of waiting and a few delays, my Pebble watch has finally arrived! This was actually the 3rd KickStarter project I backed. I was lucky enough to be a very early backer because this project caught on like wildfire. The team’s goal was 100 thousand dollars and by the end of their campaign they raised over 10 million dollars. I never thought I’d ever fall in love with a watch but here we are. There are a few bugs and quirks of the watch, the team sent out an update today saying they are working on the fixes. Check out the video review of the pebble watch. There are even photos of the pebble press event that we attended at CES 2013.

CES 2013 – Day 1: Lexus

Ktdata.NetCES2013-01

This was the talk of the town at CES 2013! Lexus’ Advanced Active Safety Research Vehicle. This beauty is equipped with sensors that give it full awareness of it’s surroundings. Now I should probably stress that this is a research vehicle, Toyota/Lexus will things they learn from building and using this car to and incorporate them into their vehicles. Although this isn’t the most aerodynamic or aesthetically pleasing car… I want one! We got a chance to talk with Jason from Toyota to learn more about this car.

CES 2013 – Day 1: Tat’z Nail’z

Ktdata.NetCES2013-01

When I think of CES I think of different gadgets but I really don’t think about nails. Tat’z Nail’z decided to change my mind on that. It’s a machine that allows you to print any image you want on your fingernails! The machine comes with 5,000 designs, contains a USB port so you can bring your own images or even take a picture of yourself with the built in camera. Still don’t believe me? Watch this video and watch Rev go through the whole process of getting a nail painted.

Ktdata.NetCES2013-01

I was super excited when I heard Apple announce the iPhone 5, that was until I heard there was a new dock connector. What was I going to do with all the docking accessories I had that used the 30-pin connector? CableJive came to the rescue with the dockBoss air! I managed to get an interview with Mike about this amazing device that has kept me from having to buy all new speaker docks.

CES 2013 – Day 1: Adonit

Ktdata.NetCES2013-01

The first tablet I ever owned was a Windows XP tablet (yes, tablets existed before the iPad) and one of my favorite things about it was the stylus. Tablets now use capacitive touch screens and don’t require the use of a stylus. However, in some applications such as note taking and drawing it just doesn’t feel right to me using just my finger. That led me to looking at all the different stylus solutions out for capacitive screens. One of my favorite styli have been the Adonit Jot. We got a chance to stop by the Adonit booth and talk to Rafael about their newest stylus, Jot Touch.
