Pronto's smart remote tech works with Peel for even more options

The promise of connected televisions and all of the streaming set top boxes in the world is more content with less effort, especially here at CES, but almost none of this new tech has done much of anything to get rid of the traditional remote control. Pronto is a connected box of a different kind, one that sits in front of your television instead of connecting directly to it. The combination of Pronto and the Peel smart remote app turns your phone into the remote control, and removes the need to use anything other than your phone to control just about everything that connects to your television. Peel can also act as a content suggestion system based on your input, making it infinitely more useful than your average scrolling TV Guide service.

It's a bold new step for Philips, who is resurrecting their Pronto line and transforming it into this new connected box and placing a premium on offering the best possible experience.

Talking fisheye selfies with Olloclip at CES

The story behind Olloclip is downright inspirational, and their hardware just keeps getting better. Here at CES we're taking a look at all kinds of connected gadgetry, most of which either straps to your phone or connects to it wirelessly, and it's exciting to see how Olloclip is still very much one of the best out there. Taking photos with such a simple accessory is something anyone can do, and the perspective difference created by the multiple lenses that are available with Olloclip really enhance every part of the photography experience.

We took a few minutes to sit down with Patrick O'Neill to learn a bit more about what Olloclip has been up to recently and learn a bit about how this Kickstarter campaign turned very successful company has been doing recently. Enjoy!

The new Typo 2 for iPhone's not that great, but their iPad keyboard's kinda neat

Typo made a splash at CES 2014 with the BlackBerry-aping Typo keyboard for iPhone, and they were at CES 2015 to show off their new not-patent-infringing Typo 2 keyboard. But really, the more interesting news out of Typo was their new iPad keyboard, it doesn't try to copy Apple. If anything, it feels more like a copy of the Microsoft Surface Type Cover, but with some slick software.

Sling Media explains why Slingbox loves streaming devices

Sling Media explains why Slingbox loves streaming devices

Streaming live television from your home to wherever you are has always been a cool idea, and there's basically only one big name in this particular corner of the world. Slingbox has been the go-to for this technology for quite a while today, and at CES this year we got a chance to ask them why that is. Ultimately, it comes down to supporting the users where they want to watch content, as explained by Sling Media CMO Mark Vena. The ability to deliver whatever content the user wants on whatever device they currently have on them at the time is what makes having a Slingbox more valuable to many of their users. Additionally, the new content suggestion tools built in to the Slingbox apps makes it so users have extra reasons to stick around and watch things from YouTube or even other channels with similar content.

It also doesn't hurt that the new Slingbox M1 comes in at $150, which is a significant price drop from some of their previous offerings. But hey, whatever lets us watch the game wherever we are, right?

Olympus talks app-based photo editing with their cameras

While it feels like the big thing at CES this year is letting your smartphone act as the center of your connected world, the folks at Olympus are perfectly happy having their cameras do all the heavy lifting. Many Olympus cameras come with WiFi onboard now, and with that comes the opportunity to use your phone to help with photography. The Olympus Share app lets you use your phone as a remote, but you can also pull the photo straight to your phone and edit whatever shot you have just taken. It's an ideal setup for those who are interested in that instant share from a smartphone, but still want to shoot with a more capable camera.

It also doesn't hurt to take a look at how nice the new OM-D E-M1 looks, especially when you know you can use your phone to play with whatever you shoot immediately after.
