Best of CES: Part 1

CES Highlights

I am getting ready to board a plane home after a whirlwind three days of tech. After a whirlwind experience of meeting brands, here are some of my favorites featuring beauty tech to cool cameras to the latest laptops.


We are excited about the Kurio tablet for kids that includes parent-safety features, preloaded apps and safe web surfing.


As a Lenovo mom, we were excited to check out the latest products from this innovative PC company. A more in-depth report will follow, but one of my favorites was the Lenovo Horizon, a multimode system for the home where you can enjoy gaming, picture editing, movie watching and more.


Fitness is big for 2014, but not just for moms. A fun way to get the whole family involved in health and fitness is with the vibrant ibitz. Created by GeoPalz, the ibitz is a wireless activity tracker that tracks a child's steps where they more they do, they more rewards they can earn like gaming content.

Insant Photos

I love taking pictures on my phone, but they rarely get printed. One way to combine printing and your phone is with FuijiFilm's new Instax system. Through this system, you download their app and then use pictures that you have taken to instantly be printed. Great for entertaining or for kids, this product literally brings some instant fun.
