There are over 20 halls to walk through at the giant IFA technology show in Berlin. Some of the buildings have three floors of products on display. Over 5 days, my Misfit Shine tracker says I walked 24.8 miles, or 60,188 steps to be precise.
What did I see? Aside from Samsung’s new Galaxy Gear smart watch and Note phablet, and Sony’s new waterproof smartphone, there were headphones and speakers galore, Ultra TV’s and a few other things I wrote about. Links are included below.
I had doodle envy when I saw 3Doodler’s 3D printing pen. Plastic goes in one end, and when it comes out the other, voila! You can create a 3D Eiffel Tower, or maybe even a pair of shoes!
Tech has invaded the bathroom too. I saw a Diamond Sonic Toothbrush that sits in its own re-chargable glass, and the Philips Laser Beard Trimmer which actually beams a laser to your throat to show you where to shave.
I also saw a bunch of products designed just for women. I liked the Yurbud earbuds designed for a woman’s smaller ear. They come in different styles and colors – including purple – and the company claims they’ll stay in place even at the gym. I plan on putting that to the test. Check out the other products here.
