It’s said that everywhere you went at Las Vegas Consumers Electronics Show, Apple was in the middle of things and big companies used it as a support for demonstrating outstanding features. What seemed to capture CES attention were GlobalIVCard, Withings and EscapeCapsule.
GlobalIVCard, a B2B application for card-not-present deals, was pointed out on an iPad2, for mobile payments using a single use Virtual MasterCard account number. iPhone clients could also experience the world of baby-sitting because Withings came with Smart Baby Monitor that tracks down your baby, even when you are at the office minding your business. It even allows interaction with the baby right from the iPhone, like talking to him or singing a lullaby. Withings describes it as “high resolution video and crystal-clear sound”.
The EscapeCapsule, especially designed iPhone 4 and 4S is like a waterproof helmet that protects the smartphone from bad weather, like rain and snow. Now users can take their iPhones with them while swimming. It does not protect the gadget from collapses but it surely comes in handy when facing mud or scratches.
Curious ones could also experience the notion of Pico projector for iOS, Bolle Bluetooth iOS photo printer, Wi-Fi helicopters and also BigC Dino-Lite digital microscope.
