Lady Gaga, 50 Cent, Ludacris Debut New Products At CES

Stop The Presses!

Known as the center for consumer technology, the Consumer Electronics Show happens annually in Las Vegas and is undoubtedly the largest of it's kind--it's the ultimate place to be for those who crave the latest and greatest in gadgetry!

The 2011 show was no exception. It drew around 2,700 technology companies with over 140,000 industry folks in attendance.

This year, we saw lots of 3-D in the form of TV sets, cameras, and game consoles. We saw many many tablets, from the Motorola XOOM to the BlackBerry Playbook.


 

 Perhaps the most buzzworthy debut was made by none other than Lady Gaga, Creative Director to Polaroid's Grey Label line.

The new line, announced by Gaga in person at CES, includes an Instant Mobile Printer, the GL30 Instant Digital Camera, and most strikingly, the GL20 Camera Glasses. Users of the goggle-like specs can instantly capture or upload photos--then display the images on the glasses' LCD screens for others to see.

 We also saw streaming devices, portable players, and lots and lots of headphones. Following the success of Beats by Dre, both 50 Cent and Ludacris debuted headphones of their own. Luda unveiled the 5-model line Soul by Ludacris, while 50 debuted wireless 'phones dubbed Sleek by 50 Cent.

From the mobile arena--literally, a huge arena-like space at the Las Vegas Convention Center--came the newest developments in smart phone gadgetry. Notably, many developers took advantage of the open-source DROID platform to build products of their own.  

We also saw the introduction of "Super Phones", phones with dual-core processors running on the 4G network with the ability to run apps galore. With mega speed like this, users can shoot and watch HD video, and even render console-level 3D graphics! Pretty cool, right?

 And while the future of Internet TV depends on whether the cable and satellite distributors can get along, we came one step closer this year.

 

Samsung has made strides through recent partnerships with Adobe, Comcast, and Time Warner in an effort to bring more streaming content to the 'tube. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the day when I can stream S.N.L. in glorious 1080p perfection--and simultaneously live-snark with friends!

Is 3-D just a passing trend?  Will Internet TV be the next big thing? Which gadgets are you most excited to see in 2011? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below!
