#CESlive 2015 is going to be bigger and more amazing than ever!

At CES 2014 we at Mobile Nations teamed up with our friends at Geek Beat to bring you #CESlive, a unique live broadcast running every day from the show floor at CES 2014 — and CES 2015 is going to be even bigger than before. For #CESlive 2015 you can add Tom's Guide to the mix, with Editor-in-Chief Mark Spoonauer joining Geek Beat's Cali Lewis and John Pozadzides and iMore's Rene Ritchie in hosting more than 80 interviews direct from the Las Vegas Convention Center. It's going to be bigger and better than ever!

How we shot 80 interviews in 4 days using an iPad mini, Vizzywig, and iOgrapher as our close-up camera!

Vizzywig was one of the sponsors of our #CESlive programming, but I have nothing to do with the sponsorships around here, and I wasn't aware of them when I walked into the show. After having spent several hours a day on stage, both watching Geek Beat's John P. using it, and using it myself, I was blown away. Here's how we used it to help shoot about 80 interviews in just 4 days!

Hands-on: Best stylus pens of 2014!

Just before #CESlive ended, I ran back and took a look at all the stylus pens that were being shown off on the show floor. There's weren't any big new announcements, but I did get to go hands on with a lot of the most recent updates. I have to say, the improvements we're seeing are remarkable. Instead of dull and drab, we're getting sexy and stylish, instead of big plastic disks, we're getting fine points, instead of rubber nibs, we're getting interchangeable brushes, and instead of dumb, dead pens, we're getting Bluetooth 4.0 LE-based pressure sensitivity and palm rejection. And 2014 has only just begun!

Chevy's AppShop skips the smartphone for in-vehicle apps at #CESlive

The surge of automaker presence at CES strikes an interesting counterpoint to the traditional auto show circuit. Where the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the week after CES is more about design and horsepower, the automakers in Vegas were talking about technology and software.

Chevrolet was one of those automakers, and their offerings were more on the software side of things. Sure, the average consumer might be intrigued by Audi's laser headlight (yes, lasers), they're far more likely to be able to afford something like a Chevy (sans lasers). So Chevrolet was showing off technology that not only can normal people afford, but will be able to buy in the relatively near future: AppShop and LTE connectivity.

The new rules of the interface — virtual reality and motion tracking at CES 2014

CES 2014 was jam-packed with all sorts of crazy stuff, but one of the many distinct themes at the show was the evolution of interfaces by way of virtual reality and touchless sensors. VR has been an unfulfilled pipe dream for too long, but when we start seeing concrete products that just might actually work, it’s hard for even the jaded among us to not get a little giddy.

Given, neither VR nor motion tracking are especially new in the world of computing, but a post-Kinect generation of consumer-friendly motion-sensing products is inching ever-closer to the mainstream. These trends stand to shift (or at least supplement) the finger-friendly direction gadgets have been on for the last couple of years, and may potentially interrupt the entrenched mouse-and-keyboard habits of a whole generation.

Seidio accessories keep your iPhone and iPad protected!

BIG Thanks to Seidio for sponsoring our #CESlive coverage at CES 2014!

CES 2014 has come to an end, as has our #CESlive coverage for the year. It was an amazing week (and a busy one to boot!), with 70 guests taking to our stage over four days.

One of our big sponsors for the year was Seidio, a company we were extremely excited to have come onboard. Like Mobile Nations, Seidio has been around since the beginning of the smartphone era, going back to 2002. Over the years they've always made a great selection of cases, charging docks and extended batteries for popular smartphones on all platforms.

Be sure to hit up the video above for a video walkthrough of Seidio's booth at CES 2014. Derek from Seidio walks us through some of the different products they had on display, including the new OBEX case which is tough and waterproof yet great for everyday use. 

For more info and to buy, you can visit seidioonline.com, or view our selection of Seidio accessories at the iMore store.

Best 5 smartwatches from CES

One of the bigger stories at CES this year was smartwatches. There were so many I had a hard time keeping track of them all, and figuring out which, if any, were worth my attention. Luckily, Adam Zeis did all the heavy lifting on that. He's compiled a list of the best 5 smartwatches at CES. From Smartwatch Fans:

Editor's desk: The biggest thing missing from CES 2014

You don't go to CES. You survive it. CES is like standing in front of a firehose of wondrous, grotesque gadgets, some amazing, some imbecilic, yet the sheer volume and velocity being fired out of any hose... hurts. This year we tried to to blanket our coverage, to bring you as much as inhumanly possible, and Georgia Dow, Anthony, Simon Sage, and Richard Devine on the ground, and Peter Cohen, Ally Kazmucha, Joe Keller, and Chris Parsons back at HQ managed to get almost 50 videos shot, edited, and posted over 3 days. We can argue that maybe it was too much — I'd agree, next year we're going to go for the less-is-more approach — but it was the job they were all given and they kicked it's ass. I can't thank them all enough.
