CSE 2011 was about more than PC hardware

Subject: Shows and Expos | January 10, 2011 - 12:52 PM |

MAKE:Blog hit CES 2011 with a different target from the coverage you have been seeing here at PC Perspective.  Instead of making a beeline for the various PC hardware vendors and mobile platform resellers, they walked through Vegas with an eye out for things the DIYer would want.  From companies that sell a wide variety of measuring devices through the newest in inductive-coupled charging to some interesting new input devices, you can get a look at some of the less covered exhibits at CES 2011.

"This year, MAKE/O'Reilly author Damien Stolarz (iPhone Hacks, Car PC Hacks) agreed to be our eyes and ears on the ground at CES, scoping out hardware at the show that he thought would be of interest to makers. Here's his second installment, a tour of North Hall and the International Pavilion."

Here are some more Shows and Expos articles from around the web:

The Tech Report had a chance to meet with EVGA, who were showing off a nVIDIA card that can only be described as "a dual-GPU, SLI-on-a-stick video card".  Drop by for a look at this monster card.
