Macworld/iWorld: Day 2 wrap-up from the show floor
Another day at Macworld/iWorld, another round of roaming the show floor looking for eye-catching products for Mac and iOS users. And four share the spotlight in this Friday wrap-up video.
We start with LumoBack, a wearable sensor that works with a mobile app to help correct your posture: The sensor vibrates when you slouch, and the app tracks your posture and other activities in real-time. Staying with devices that help monitor your body, the Rhythm Touch is a device where little pads attach to your shoulder, your feet, or whatever other achy part of your body you want and deliver a very thorough massage. It’s aimed at helping with chronic muscle pain, but it’s also quite useful after a long day at Moscone West. iBird is a mobile field guide that fits entirely on your iOS device, which helps you identify birds when you’re out in the wild and far away from an Internet connection. Finally, I took a look at CrazyTalk 7, an animation program making its Mac debut at Macworld/iWorld.
CrazyTalk is one of the products to win Best of Show at this year’s Macworld/iWorld. The awards, picked by Macworld editors, recognize the top products on display at the event. We announced the 2013 Best of Show winners on Friday.
Here’s some other coverage from Macworld/iWorld that may catch your interest:
- The Omni Group announced a planned update for OmniFocus for the Mac;
- an update to the Givit video-sharing app for iOS;
- Gigsky, which offers mobile users international data without high roaming charges; and
- Daylight Viewfinder, which offers glare protection to iPhone photographers.
We also posted a few videos Friday that might merit another look:
- Chef Sleeve, which offers protection for iPad-toting cooks;
- the Macworld debut of the Mauz input device accessory;
- BowBlade, an iOS gaming accessory; and
- new phone accessories from musician Will.i.am.
We’ll be back Saturday to wrap things up on the final day of Macworld/iWorld.
