Utah Tech Innovations Excel at CES

Compiled by Sarah Ryther Francom

February 18, 2014

Every year, the world’s latest and greatest tech innovations are debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This year, more than 40 Utah companies were at the acclaimed event, showing off their goods. Here’s a sampling of some of the top technologies coming out of the Beehive State.

Braven - BRV-Bank

The Braven BRV-Bank is a portable, water-resistant, backup battery. Integrated with Bluetooth technology, the device connects to a custom app to wirelessly monitor battery levels and charge devices. And because of its Bluetooth integration, the device even enables users to locate the power bank from a smartphone or tablet. The BRV-Bank is created out of durable material, making it an ideal device for hard-core adventurers.

Jigabot - AIMe

Jigabot’s AIMe is a robotic mount and tracking system for videographers, providing a hands-free way for them to shoot video at just about any location. The device has an auto-framing system that easily works with smartphones and cameras as it automatically tracks a moving subject in real time. During CES, AIMe was recognized by Videomaker for its versatility and engineering excellence. In addition to the Videomaker award, AIMe was named one of the top five robots announced at CES by Fast Company.

ZAGG - Cover-Fit

The Cover-Fit is the latest lightweight Bluetooth keyboard from ZAGG. At just 1.5 cm thin and weighing only 255 grams, the ZAGG Cover-Fit is one of the lightest keyboards on the market. Designed specifically for Samsung products, including the Samsung Galaxy, NotePRO and TabPRO, the Cover-Fit will be available at retailers this March.

ZAGG - Sparq Combination Auto Wall Charger

The ZAGG Sparq Combination Auto and Wall Charger is
an ultra-compact, all-in-one solution for charging mobile devices using a USB connection. The new charger offers both wall-socket prongs and a car charger for flexible charging. The outgoing USB port features 2.1A output for quick recharging, along with an autosense chip to power Apple and Android devices at optimal speed.

iFrogz - Tadpole

At the size of an average keyless entry remote, the iFrogz Tadpole Bluetooth speaker delivers big sound from a tiny package, bringing music and fun to any location. The Tadpole has the ability to clip onto keys, purses and belts, making it perfect for on-the-go use. And because of its lithium-ion battery, the device can provide hours of continuous play. But just in case it runs out of juice, the Tadpole also features a simple micro-USB charging port for convenient recharges.

Xi3 - PISTON Console

The PISTON Console is ideal for hard-core gamers who will love this powerful and sleek gaming device. Measuring in just over four inches per side, the console is easily portable, yet offers high performance that is unmatched in the industry. The device is also unique as it offers gamers three ways to play—using a controller, mouse and keyboard, or virtual reality peripheral—the only console on the market that caters to anyone’s gaming preference. Beyond gaming, the device works in a variety of activities such as serving as a home theater and home automation control.
