Is this the future? Some wild technology is here right now, and it could just be revving up to change the world as we know it.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, many demonstrations were shown off. One of them involved a new wireless technology that would deliver a whole new type of power source to our homes and beyond.

For the demonstration, Fulton Innovation — the technology’s creator — brought along some shelving and surfaces that look pretty much like any other shelving or surface you might look at. What’s not seen, however, is power surging through these surfaces, which makes some very interesting things possible. The most entertaining of these, for those who aren’t interested in the scientific stuff, are cereal boxes; they look just like regular cereal boxes, naturally, but when placed on these special surfaces, the cereal boxes illuminate playfully. Something sure to catch the eye of any passing child. But that, my friends, is just the beginning.

You can see a much more in-depth video of these crazy-cool cereal boxes and the even crazier technology behind them, as well as read about some more useful possibilities by heading on over to the other side now.

Avatar Kinect

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was last week in Las Vegas, and there was some interesting gaming news, one of which that stood out to me in particular was the Avatar Kinect coming this Spring from Microsoft.

It does what the name suggests, combines the Kinect motion camera with your avatar, but does it in a way that is pretty amazing. Not only does the camera track your movements, but also your facial expressions. It really is cool; it is kind of like video chatting, but instead of seeing each other, you interact with each other’s avatars. This would make me all the more likely to use the video chat piece of Kinect.

I know many of my Xbox Live friends, but others I only know from gaming, so I’m not too keen on video chatting with people I really don’t know. You can also put your avatars in different settings, and record your interaction if you want to. You can check out the video below of it in action. I’m looking forward to trying it out, although I’m not excited to see my giant eyebrows moving all over the place.
