One of the great things about the Eureka Park section of CES is that you can stumble across the cool new ideas that have yet to make it to market. Such is the case with LifeDoor, designed by a former firefighter to protect his family.

PicoBrew says its the "maker of the world's first line of craft beer brewing appliances"—and who I am to say that it's not?

In Finnish, HUMU means ”humming” or ”commotion”. It's also the name of a new "augmented audio cushion" that the company, Flexound Systems (a Finish tech startup), says is "the first consumer product to add the sense of touch to entertainment."

They are popping up everywhere, smart speakers, that is. Harman Kardon has already sworn allegiance to the Cortana cabal with its Invoke, and now it is cozying up to Alexa with the Allure Portable. There is no honor among thieves or audio companies.

It’s all well and good to have smart speakers throughout the home, but it makes a lot more sense to have one right next to your bed. The iHome iGV1 is a bedside clock with Google Assistant, ready to wake you up with all the information you need to start your day.

Relative newcomer to the headphone industry (but old-timer in the mic business), Blue is shaking things up with a different way of dealing with noise cancelling sounds. While most headphones use a single driver, Blue’s wireless, over-ear Satellite uses a separate driver specifically for the sounds used to cancel out noise. Different, right?

How much does it suck to spend half your workout trying to untangle your headphone cables before you can start to listen to your music? A lot, right? Wraps Wristband headphones and cables never tangle because you carry them wrapped around your wrist instead of stuffed in your bag or briefcase.

The dancing robots and talking smart speakers get all the attention at CES, but there is still a strong showing of traditional audio products. They don't light up or take selfies. They just sound really good.

Sometimes the headlines write themselves. Nevertheless, I have a certain fondness for wireless waterproof speakers. I take them out in the back forty. When it starts to rain, I don't care.
