Last June, Sony forked out loads of cash to buy Gaikai, a company with cloud gaming technology that was very similar to the now sort of defunct OnLive. Not many details of Sony's plans were revealed at the time beyond Gaikai potentially being the solution to the lack of backwards compatibility between the PS3 and PS4. Well, that all changed moments at Sony's CES keynote...

Hot on the tail of the SteelSeries Stratus is another Bluetooth iOS 7 controller out of CES. It's by a new brand called "Signal" which I am having zero luck finding anything about because companies named after plain nouns are nearly impossible to Google. Regardless, the press release insists that the Signal team includes "leading hardware and software developers with extensive MFi partnership experience, backed by management with a history of success in consumer electronics."..

If iOS is your sole outlet for gaming, you've been missing out on all the cool stuff Nvidia has been up to lately. In a nutshell, the Kepler chips they've been releasing lately scale ridiculously well, allowing similar versions of the same graphics processors to be used in everything from massive supercomputers to mobile devices. This time around, they're combining a 2.3Ghz quad core ARM Cortex A15 processor with a graphics processor packed with 192 Kepler-based cores. It's capable of pushing 4K video with "record levels of performance and battery life" through processor architecture wizardry that allows the K1 to automatically enable and disable cores based on load...

CES is always a little hit or miss for cool iOS stuff, as iOS accessories sort of take the back stage to whatever the new hot mass-market TV technology is. (Which, consequently, I believe is 4K this year. Thankfully it seems we've moved on from forcing 3D in everything!) Either way, a couple of cool iOS controlled toys are coming out of the show, from manufacturers who have already have existing products that fit that description. Parrot, the makers of the AR.Drone, and Orbotix, the makers of the Sphero...

Hey, in case you were not aware, the 46th annual Consumer Electronics Show is kicking off this week in Las Vegas, and there's already plenty of news pouring out from the Nevada desert. One thing that caught our eye is the Sensus touch-enabled iPhone case from Canopy...

CES 2010: Hands On with Parrot AR.Drone Quadricoptor

Without a doubt, one of the coolest things introduced at CES 2010 was Parrot's AR.Drone quadricoptor. We managed to track it down for some hands-on time and yes, it's really as cool as it looks from the developer's videos...

Aside from the Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter, we haven't come across much noteworthy in the world of iPhone gaming at CES-- Everyone is far too busy looking at tablet computers being shown and speculating as to which is likely going to be the closest to Apple's tablet. That doesn't mean people at CES aren't playing iPhone games...

CES 2010: Parrot AR.Drone - An iPhone-Controlled Quadricopter

While we won't be on the floor of CES until tomorrow, the internet is already on fire with buzz surrounding the Parrot AR.Drone remote control quadricopter that is controlled by creating its own WiFi network that either an iPhone or an iPod Touch connects to. The Parrot AR.Drone is then maneuvered using the accelerometers of the iPhone combined with a video feed from the forward facing camera on the drone itself...
