CES 2016 – day two roundup

CES 2016 is now in full swing, so let’s take a look at some of the coolest-sounding gadgets to come from the world’s biggest technology show so far.

Misfit Specter

Misfit, the company best-known for its tiny and attractive Shine activity tracker, has unveiled a new gadget to help you keep fit.

Misfit Specter

Misfit Specter is a pair of wireless, activity tracking earphones. It comes with all Misfit’s usual tracking features - so can record steps, sleep and the likes - as well as some powerful audio tech.

Dual audio drivers and technology from high-end headphone maker, 1MORE, keep your music sounding its best, while an innovative design makes Specter comfortable enough to sleep on.

Misfit hasn’t given details on when Specter will be available, or how much it’ll cost, but we’re already looking forward to testing it out.

Solos smart eyewear

Solos is a new company at CES 2016, but it’s hitting the show with an impressive product.

Solos eyewear is designed for elite cyclists and coaches (although if you’re a keen cyclist with cash burning a hole in your pocket we’re sure you’ll find them a handy accessory) and lets you see real time training data on a heads up display.

The key to Solos is its smartphone app, which lets you choose the stats you want to track and see on the glasses. It then wirelessly sends the data to a little prism-screen, similar to the one used in Google Glass. As everything is done in real time, you can adjust your training while still on your bike.

Reach Case

We’ve all been somewhere and found our mobile signal is weak or non-existent. That’s why the clever folks at Reach Case invented a new type of iPhone case.

The Reach Case has a built in antenna range extender. Just slide the back of the case down and it acts as a giant antenna, sucking in every bit of signal it can find so you can make that all-important phone call, or update your Facebook status.

Neyya smart ring

A company called Neyya has unveiled a smart ring at CES that could be a decent alternative to a smartwatch.

The Neyya vibrates to give you notifications and can send pre-set responses with simple taps and swipes, but it can also control some other key gadgets.

Giving a presentation on your laptop? Neyya lets you move from slide to slide easily. Want to capture a selfie or change the track on your phone? Neyya can do that too. It’s even compatible with GoPro action cameras and ROKU smart TV boxes.

Privoro Privacy Guard

If you’re particularly worried about GCHQ and NSA spying, Privoro might have created the perfect phone case for you.

Privoro Privacy Guard

The Privacy Guard blocks almost all radio signals from reaching your phone, making it undetectable from cell towers, Wi-Fi hotspots and GPS. It can also block people from eavesdropping by transmitting different sounds to your phone’s microphones.

In short, with the Privoro Privacy Guard on your phone your privacy will be completely protected. Of course, as the case stops any signals getting to the phone, you won’t be able to do much.

Samsung Family Hub refrigerator

Getting into the true realms or ridiculousness is Samsung with its new Family Hub refrigerator. This four-door behemoth has a 21.5-inch touchscreen covering one of its doors, giving you access to apps, photos and music.

Samsung is even planning on integrating Amazon’s Alexa voice controlled personal assistant. That would let you add items to shopping lists, play music and more without having to use the enormous touchscreen.

If you think you need a TV-sized tablet in your fridge, Samsung will be charging $5,000 (£3,420) for one – or about the same as a second-hand BMW Z4 sports car.

Stay tuned for more from CES 2016.
