Sometimes we have different expectations. I'd like to hear from readers on whether these consumer electronics devices would make a difference in your lives.

Perhaps I'm just an old, cranky engineer, fixed (or rusted?) into my ways, but I couldn't work up more than a yawn for all but two of these goodies. The Lytro camera is interesting from a technology standpoint, but I am not sure just how widespread it will become. Certainly, the bulk of photos are "just" snapshots, and no one gives a hoot about changing their focus: you just shoot the thing again. Of course, there are applications where after the fact focus would be important, but why not just focus the whole image? That's not always artistic, but it's more economic than dinking about after you snap the shutter. I like the technology, though, and Ng's thesis is a neat read. The other device that I can see of some practical value are the Sennheiser wireless headsets. I could use that... I sometimes want to watch a movie after the kids are in bed, and I don't always want to turn the volume down into the noise. The other items: well, they are nifty, or neat, or cool, but not for me. Overall, it would be interesting to see which of these make it to this point next year.

I agree with you. The headsets were MSRP $600 and that puts it out of consideration for me.

Did you know that the judges for the Innovations awards don't even get a hands-on with the product? They simply send over spec sheets and the judges have to basically "guess" what products will be great for 2012. If you ask me, it's an absolute joke. Thus, consumer disasters like the Google TV somehow snuck into the mix.

None other than the tab from Sony is of much appealing to my likings. Why the tab from Sony is stands ahead of all others in the market? Has anybody experienced it? Does the feature mentioned in this article make big sense?

The Lytro camera is very cool. I'm sure each of us has a few photos that are out of focus, but could not be re-taken -- action shots, or those rare events that were captured at just the right moment, which happened to occur before the autofocus had settled. The Wipnet gadget is something I would personally be very interested in. Some of us have coax in the walls throughout the house, but not CAT5 cables, and would love to connect our desktop PCs and TVs to Ethernet instead of WiFi. The Biscotti TV Phone falls in the "what were they thinking?" category. Is it really meant to sit on top of a TV set? Modern LCD TVs are so thin, you can't sit anything on top of them.

I really hate to say this, the blurb had an unacceptable level of technical problems, i.e. "system" instead of "spectrum", and the final 15 words being incompetent garbage. Highly unprofessional. (the Sennheiser blurb)

quite boring, the wireless speaker/earphone are the same piece of junk and has been around for quite many years. Have you seen a wireless guitar connector? much cooler. For the sony tab, I am realizing all it's function now with a usb/VGA extention cable. why bother?

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
