Latest gadgets at CES tech forum

Click has been checking out some of the latest gadgets on display at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.

The Las Vegas tech forum hosts some of the newest technology hoping to become the next must-have items.

TRISPECS HEADPHONE SUNGLASSES

Music to your ears - or your eyes?

Click's editor Richard Taylor tries out sunglasses by TriSpecs with built-in headphones.

These can stream your favourite tunes straight from a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone or music player.

But do check you like the style of the sunglasses before making the $199 (131) purchase.

MINORU 3D WEBCAM FROM NOVO

How the 3D webcam works

Spencer Kelly tests out the Novo Minoru webcam which uses some new and some old tech to make 3D conversations possible.

The webcam has two lenses which enables people watching you via your webcam to see you in 3D form.

But this is only possible with a little help from some 1950s tech: glasses with green and red lenses.

ZIVIO BOOM WIRELESS HANDSET

Does it pass the CES noise test?

When you are talking over a wireless headset, do people sometimes have problems hearing you?

The pullout microphone on the new Zivio Boom wireless headset by Joby may solve your problems, as Dan Simmons demonstrates.

TWO-SCREEN MACHINE

Devices for creative people

Spencer Kelly checks out a new two-screen laptop by Lenovo aimed at creative people such as graphic designers and video editors.

Double screens could be on their way in the future, if the concept catches on.

GESTURING CAMERA

Raise a hand to take control

A 3D camera that picks up gestures and allows the user to control their television is on display at the CES tech fair in Las Vegas.

Click's Richard Taylor demonstrates the GestureTek creation which should make flicking through photos or your collection of video games as easy as raising a hand.
