CES 2007 Video: Emtrace Widgetstation, No PC Required!


We all know of and love widgets, regardless of if they are on Windows Vista, in Apple’s Dashboard, or on the web with Yahoo! or Windows Live - but so far to use widgets we have been forced to interact with them on a computer. Emtrace is currently in the final stages of developing the Emtrace Widgetstation, which offers a small widget display and interaction device that can sit anywhere in your house for ‘glance-able’ information.

The Widgetstation features 802.11 technology to enable it to update weather, sports, traffic, or photo information from the web without a computer. I know we here at Gear Live are looking forward to when the Widgetstation hits retail so we can keep track of incoming emails and IMs when not glued to our workstations. This looks to be the perfect desk or bedroom accessory for anyone looking for a quick way to keep up to date.

Currently the Widgetstation uses proprietary widget formats, however Emtrace is working on technologies to enable the Widgetstation to work with other formats of widgets from Microsoft, Apple, and others. Look for it soon in the $200 price range.
