My Favorite Tech From IFA

So I went to the Berlin IFA show – called by some the European CES, to see what I could see.  We did a bunch of videos from there – you can see them at Revision3.com/IFA.  But here are some of the other things I saw that were particularly interesting.

I was really happy to see Revision3 represented int the LG Smart TV booth, you can see our logo down in the center of the picture. I hope they sell a ton of those TVs.

Here’s something I’ve been waiting for for a long time – it’s a window cleaning robot.  It works via magnets, and can do six large windows on one charge.  I do not know how much it will cost, but the Chinese company showing it off said it would be at CES this January.

Here’s a picture of it taken apart, it’s called the “Winbot”
TIPI in Berlin_edited-2 They call this the Tipi, it’s where the big Medienwoche gala was held.  My friend’s company rolled out BitBop at the show, and their upstairs bar – by the globe on the right – was the “in” spot to hang out.
sony tablet P I didn’t think I’d like Sony’s new clamshell Android tablet the Tablet P.  But after playing with it for a few minutes, I changed my mind.  It’s pretty cool to use, a great form factor, and depending on the price, I could definitely see picking one up.
