Recording our second CES epsiode "amost live" from CES, we wrap up the show this week with conversations about Circuit Scribe, Lego Boost, the Sevenhugs universal remote, Plantronics headphones, the terrifying iPal family robot, and some utterly inexplicable Vinci headphones from Inspero.
Reporting almost live from CES, we talk about the most interesting things we've seen on the show floor this year, including great stuff (like VR, drones, and smart home gadgets) and some head scratchingly misguided gadgets like "smart" hairbrushes and sticky note printers.
Joining us once again this week: Special guest tech journalist Melissa Perenson. We talk about downloading movies from Netflix for offline viewing. We also talk about the glut of streaming sites (did you know YouTube has its own premium subscription service?) and the coming reckoning that will bring. Join us for this last episode of 2016. See you in 2017 live from CES.
