What junk. If someone brought a Lionel train set they would have stolen the show.

@bnowak, I feel $199 for just camera is pretty expensive. With the same price we can buy low-end smartphone which can also be used as mountable camera.

@martin_#5, true many of these ideas were present before but its good to see those ideas in the form of products. I am more curious to know about the developments in 3D printers.

Nothing revolutionary here, but still some interesting and useful gadgets. The Nectar power source would be a great asset on a camping trip, but might be a bit heavy to carry while backpacking. The Ego cameras are also intriguing -- perhaps a nice alternative to the GoPro for winter sports, off-roading, etc. The personal drone strikes me as a bizarre product. If I ever saw one of those things following me, I would be seriously tempted to shoot it down :)

The pricing on those "Ego" mountable cameras does't look right. Should they be reversed?

I guess it's official; the consumer electronics industry have run out of new ideas. Almost all of this, in one form or another, has appeared before.

A couple years back, a family friend got an old fashioned "slot car set" for Christmas. While our kids were off playing their new video games, we were playing with the slot cars and soon, they were all gathered around wanting their turn. However, the intrigue wore out when the physical limitations became obvious. I suspect similar things with the battling robots. The capabilities of an virtual robot far outweigh those present in a "reasonably" price robot. Great fun initially but destined for the storage closet.

So far not impressed with any of this 'stuff'....the interactive scale is about the only thing worth something......the drone scares me

The personal drone sounds like Big Brother at home, but I could see some applications such as following those with early onset Alzheimers. They could take walks with the drone available in case they become disoriented. Sounds like snooping, but as someone who had parents with health issues, it takes a real burden off the caregivers. Also, the use of alternatives to prison sentences for minor offences is increasing. This would allow someone with an electronic handcuff to go to certain locations and still be monitored. This a lot cheaper than institutionalizing. In California, this is a major issue with prison overcrowding.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
