CES 2013

While it would be really fun to follow the technology pilgrimage to Las Vegas every January, that's not always possible. Instead, I'll highlight a few of the ideas and gadgets from CES that I have found interesting.

Nest The smart thermostat. They've been around for a while. This thermostat helps you save on energy by learning your usage patterns and it looks really cool.

Aeros. They let you watch live TV over the internet for $8/month or $80/year. Finally a cord cutting alternative that doesn't break the bank. They capture over the air signals and give you access to about 30 channels. Currently only available in the New York area, but are expanding across the country

Liquipel Everyone probably know someone who's lost a phone to water. Liquipel applies a nano coat to your phone or tablet to protect them from liquid spills

Lockitron Keyless entry powered by your phone. You could literally open your apartment door from any where in the world
