You can brag to your friends about the amazing weekend you had at the track all you want, but without a witness, you might as well be boasting about that monstrous fish that got away. So for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, GM is including what it calls its Performance Data Recorder which overlays telemetry, speed, and location data over a 720p video recording of everywhere you've driven — basically giving you instant replay of your hoonage so you can back up your bragging.

If a tiny workshop has prevented you from adding one of MakerBot's Replicator 3D printers to your toolkit, today is your lucky day. The company has announced a smaller version of its Replicator 3D printer — aptly called the Replicator Mini — with a smaller footprint, easy one-touch printing, and even a networked camera inside allowing you to remotely keep tabs on a print job in process. It will be available sometime this spring for $US1375.
We saw a half-baked version of LG's Lifeband Touch last year at CES, but couldn't actually play with it, and we never actually saw the fully torqued tracker come to fruition. This year the fitness tracker is back, and it is surely trying to be a whole lot of things all at once.
Designing an electronic device to wake someone up is easy — it just needs a clock and suitably loud speaker. But designing a device that wakes someone up gently so they're not a tyrant in the morning, and helps them get to sleep at night? That's a challenge that Withings tackled with its new Aura bedside system that uses light and sound to make falling asleep and waking up a lot easier.
Slow cookers are great because you can throw in your ingredients in the morning and by the time you get home from work dinner is done. But stuff happens, and sometimes you forget about that roast simmering away, and next thing you know you burn your meal and your house down. Enter the WeMo Smart Crock Pot to solve all your woes.
We all know we should be brushing more diligently several times a day, but without our dentists regularly shaming us into better oral hygiene, that rarely happens. So a Paris-based company called Kolibree has created what it claims to be the world's first app-connected toothbrush that will encourage better brushing habits between dentist visits.
Following hot on the heels of the Rydis H67 released just a few months ago, Moneual has revealed an updated version of its Roomba challenger with the Rydis H68 that introduces a capacious built-in reservoir — the largest on the market it claims — for holding cleaning agents, and a new system for more efficiently cleaning a room. Using 42 omni-directional sensors the bot automatically scans a room, tracks its own position, and then maps out the most efficient route that covers as much of the floor as possible.
If you prefer everything on your desk to be a stunning example of industrial design, LaCie's new Sphère is an external hard drive you won't want to hide behind your monitor. It looks like a giant drop of mercury thanks to its hand-crafted and highly-polished silver-plated steel housing which helps explain why you'll be paying $500 or more for just a single terabyte of storage.
Linksys' WRT54G is considered to be the best-selling wireless router of all time. And its iconic black and blue design has become synonymous with such hardware — just look at the image used on this generic wireless router Wikipedia page. So it makes sense that for its next generation router, the new Linksys WRT1900AC, the company would revive that iconic design — albeit with a few aesthetic and technical upgrades.
Even if you've splurged on the most capacious smartphone or tablet you can find, at one point you're still going to run out of storage space. And in lieu of constantly swapping tiny memory cards, LaCie's new Fuel offers a full terabyte of storage that's available to your mobile devices via a direct wireless connection.
Belkin continues its pursuit of making home automation a simple plug-and-play affair with the introduction of its new Smart LED lightbulbs to its WeMo line. The 60-watt equivalent bulbs produce 800 lumens and cast a warm 3000 Kelvin glow across a room — so they should satisfy even those who've stocked up on incandescent bulbs.
Intel officially unveiled the details of its Thunderbolt 2 specification back in April, and while we've already seen the release of hardware like motherboards that support the Thunderbolt successor, LaCie's new Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2 is one of the first external drives that will officially support the blazing new connection.
