The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) just wrapped up about at week ago in Las Vegas.  This is a chance for companies to show off all of their latest and greatest products among other things.  Several handy gadgets perfect for the traveler were on display, and here’s a look at some of them:

–Casio Slim Video Projector–

What makes this Casio Super Slim Projector unique is that it’s very powerful, yet small.  In fact, it’s about the size of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.  This makes it easy to carry, and easy to pack. Features you’d enjoy with model XJ-S30:

  • Zoom: 2x optical zoom means that you can project onto a screen as close as 32″ away. If you’re in a limited space environment, this would work out great
  • Keystone correction: This makes it possible to project an undistorted image onto a screen from just about any angle. No adjustments have to be made to square up the image.
  • Wireless remote: Makes giving presentations easier
  • Quiet fan: You won’t have to worry about the fan over-powering your voice. People will still be able to hear you as you use this.
  • Weight; Less than 4 pounds!

Another Casio model is the XJS35 which has similar features, but more options for connectivity. What’s great about these projectors is that between them, they offer inputs that would allow you to connect a variety of different electronic devices to it, including your Xbox!

Price: Around $1500

–Bushnell ONIX 400 GPS Device–

Bushnell has hooked up with XM Satellite radio to bring you a GPS system that will help you stay connected to your favorite sports teams, and music while you’re on the go.  They have yet to add this device to their product page, however, it’s expected at some point. The device can handle immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes which will definitely suit the rugged traveler.

Because it works with XM Satellite radio, it has the modular XM dataport that accepts XM accessories (like antenna headphones, and docks). This is truly for an outdoorsman, and not to be used for navigation while you’re driving. It doesn’t come with any routing software.

It’s a great combination of mapping and GPS features, along with the XM capabilities.


Kodak V1003 and Kodak V803 Cameras-

At CES, Kodak announced their 10 MP and 8 MP cameras that will come in different colors like purple, blue, red, and pink. These cameras are part of their Kodak Easyshare line that has become quite popular.  Each of those cameras have 3X Kodak Retinar Aspheric All Glass Optical zoom lenses.
