Consumer Electronics Show is a tech smorgasbord. Here are nine products that attest to the show's overwhelming variety.
have been all the rage at CES the last few years, but it's likely that 4K ultra-high resolution TVs
will be one of the major talking points this year. The Sony XBR will be one of the models packing in extra pixels; with a 3840 x 2160-pixel display, it offers four times the resolution of today's 1080p sets. Not a lot of 4K content is available right now, but the XBR is equipped to connect directly to Sony's library of available titles, and to upscale lower resolution media. The television can also link to popular Internet services such as Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and Facebook.
Gamers might be particularly interested in the model; when combined with a PlayStation 3 and special glasses, the XBR offers gamers split-screen views that retain a full HD image -- perfect for many multiplayer titles. And 3-D enthusiasts aren't forgotten either; the XBR supports the extra dimension, just like recent CES predecessors.
Being at the bleeding edge of home entertainment doesn't come cheap, though; at $25,000, the 84-inch TV won't be showing up in many living rooms.
