We chat with iriver about their upcoming W10 media player. It’s has WiFi connectivity and has a slightly difference interface than the iriver clix. It also features a touch-screen along with stylus, and built-in speaker. The WiFi allows for some great features, like location monitoring (similar to GPS), which means you can find restaurants, hotels, night clubs, and the like. Wifi positioning also has a few other features, which we go over in the video. The iriver W10 will be available in 2, 4, and 8 gigabyte sizes, and should appear on store shelves by the end of June. No pricing info has been released as of yet.

We talk to Samsung about their K5, T9, and K3 MP3 players, all of which have a couple of unique features for those looking to get away from the whole iPod thing.

There are all sorts of high-quality electronic toothbrushes out there. HydraBrush aims to take some of the attention off of the Oral B Professionals and SoniCares of the world by combining 8 microbrushes that you actually bite into. By doing so, you get a full brushing on both sides of your teeth as well as a gum massage. Don’t mind the demo, as we were just as uncomfortable watching it in person as we are sure you are watching from the comfort of your screens. In any event, the HydraBrush is available for $109 USD.

VeriSign is throwing down the content delivery gauntlet with their Intelligent CDN technology. We are talking about full high definition video content streamed directly to your television at very high speeds. They show off a 200 MB file that is encoded at 5 mbps 1080p, which downloads completely in under 30 seconds. This is the kind of technology we hope to see on our set top boxes in the near future, and VeriSign is promising that it isn’t far away at all. Give it a view, and let us know what you think. Could both and be dead in the water with tech like this soon to be available everywhere?

Hitachi is working on packing an insanely large amount of storage into an incredibly tiny space by way of their iVDR technology. We speak with Hitatchi about iVDR in this clip, where they mention squeezing 760 GB into a 2.5-inch sized drive. iVDR is expected to launch in April over in Japan, and a 160 GB module will likely cost around $300 USD. We get a look at a couple of prototype ideas as well, all in this clip.

We chat with Mark Domaille of Atlantic, a company that manufactures completely waterproof and shockproof iPod cases. While they aren’t the prettiest things, we aren’t sure that anything short of a bulldozer will be able to destroy your iPod while it’s encased in one of these. The case also has built-in neoprene waterproof speakers. Available for $199 USD.

We noticed a few people charging their cell phones on the HyperCharge Mobile Charger at CES, and we figured we would talk to a couple of people who were using it to get their impressions. For $5, you get a 15 minute charge which results in a virtually full battery. We also spoke with someone who just left their BlackBerry in the unit, as security is an issue when dealing with expensive phones and handhelds.

We caught up with Technocom to talk about their Vehicle and Infrastructure Integration, which allows vehicles to integrate with both the road infrastructure as well as other cars. The hope is that the technology will both reduce traffic congestion and reduce auto accidents. Vehicles would be fitted with a custom Technocom console, or it would be built-in to a standard GPS device, and all of a sudden your driving world would be willed with different safety alerts so that you are kept on your toes about driving conditions and hazards.

We caught up with Adbul Kahl with Streaming Networks, who gave us a look at the iRecord. The device takes your TV, DVD, TiVo, PC, and just about any other content you can imagine, and moves it to your iPod, cell phone, PSP, USB Mass Storage Device. It basically sits between your device and the source, and records the content at a rate of about 3 hours per gigabyte. The video quality was excellent from what we saw. Check the video for the full demo of the iRecord, which is available for $199 USD.

We stopped to chat with Rome Eselin of to talk about the new Unit2 that they are working on. While not available yet, the device looks to be a winner. It’s a PMP sporting a 30GB hard drive, 7-inch LCD display, with integrated WiFi. It has a docking station that has multiple inputs and outputs as well as an integrated DVD player, so you can both display the Unit2 content on a TV, but also send signals from your cable box or DVD player to the Unit2 wirelessly over 802.11n. They are even trying to incorporate point of interest into the device, so by way of the internet connection, you can find local restaurants. Even Internet radio is being considered. This device could be hot when released in the fourth quarter of 2007 - no pricing details have been released.
