The visit to IOGEAR was quite interesting. We saw several cool and very useful items.
The first thing we saw was a little device that records what you write on normal paper. You can then save as it an image file, an email, or scan it with OCR software and have the text editable.
The next device we saw was an iPod dock allows you to stream audio throughout your home through the power lines.
Sitting next to the iPod dock was a portable HTPC. The model we saw included a 250GB drive and lets you view all sorts of media formats such as DivX, Xvid, jpeg, etc.
Next up on the list was a neat little device that lets you power your portable devices on the go. We were told that you can fully charge your cell phone at least three times on a single charge. The device comes with eleven adapters and over forty more are available through the website.
Connected to the laptop next to the power adapter was this miniscule little USB Bluetooth adapter. You can see how small it is in comparison to the quarter.
During CES, IOGEAR won an award for its wireless USB device.
The final thing we saw were the various KVM switches IOGEAR produces.
The following KVM was the most notable. It offers dual-link DVI for connecting very large monitors (a 30" was set up at the booth), along with the ability to share USB devices between the two machines. It also offers 7.1 audio.
