Sennheiser – HD700 Headphones – CES 2012

Nick from F5 talked with Eric Palonen from Sennheiser to talk about some new products. The HD700 brings a brand new sound. This has a wide soundstage, because the transducers come in at an angle. The HD700 also has a ventilated magnet system. This channels air pressure so you don’t get turbulence in your ears. That means the headphones will not create any type of air flow obstruction, so the speakers can work more freely to give you the best quality sound. End result is crystal clear, unadulterated sound. Finally, the HD700 has a Vibration damping frame. It will reduce the vibration from one transducer to another....

ClarityOne: Improving Sound by Repelling EM Interference Fields – CES 2012

Dean Kurnell joins the TPN CES Live coverage with ClarityOne Audio. They were on the show last year talking about their technology. Now, they are ready to bring this set of earphones to market. Any audiophile will tell you that Electro-Magnetic (EM) Interference occurs, which causes speakers to counter-respond. That means you might not get the best sound from a speaker, simply because it’s too close to another electronic device. ClarityOne simply makes an opposing EM field to counter. Not cancel out, but neutralize the incoming EM field. The end result is the speaker can work naturally to deliver quality sound. Some have even said...

Fingerprint Validation Technology with Validity

Mariel van Tatenhove, the VP of Marketing came by the live booth to show off Validity. It’s the fingerprint swipe technology on certain laptops and touchscreens. Validity is different from other fingerprint swipe technologies for they separate the sendor from the silicon. The end result is the sensor is not broken. The best part is the newer versions can change color to let you know if it worked or not.

Cellcontrol Blocks texting when Vehicle is Moving

Chuck Cox joins Todd on the TPN Live CES coverage. They talk about Cellcontrol – a company that blocks texting while driving, but uses the vehicle to block. By putting a blocker in the car rather than on the phone, Cellcontrol can offer blocking using the vehicle. You are more likely to be in an accident when texting – driving. But you can limit what they can do. Cellcontrol blocks texts and applications like facebook and more. The end result – communicating with important contacts – 911, a dispacher or a single person. By putting Cellcontrol into Fleet vehicles, they...

The company is Wicked Metal Jacket. They make iPhone (and soon iPad) cases in aircraft quality Aluminum bar stock. The company then cuts a design, from hearts to flames, in the stock. Add anodized colors and you have a case that will get looks. Wicked Metal Jacket makes quality aftermarket parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles. They do add a level of...

Fireworks Through iPhone – 1 Photo at a Time

Over the weekend the band played a local festival in central WI. At 10PM, they had a fireworks show. I did like anyone else – pulled out my iPhone and tried to take a photo. However, with the new shutter speed of the OS4, I realized I could take a few pictures in a couple seconds. So I kept hitting the shutter button. The end result was 374 pictures recreating the fireworks. It worked so well, there are points where you can see the firework climb in the sky and explode. It was an amazing display.
