Like a GoPro, only different.
"Polaroid’s Socialmatic isn’t the only surprise to come from the faded photo brand at this year’s CES. The company also showed off a line of four action cameras, including an adorable new 35-mm cube camera called the C3. It will ship for $99 later this summer. For its small size, the camera is packed full of a surprising degree of features, including a 120-degree wide-angle lens capable of capturing HD video in 1280 x 720 and 640 x 580 resolution, and still images up to 5 megapixels. It’s waterproof up to 2 meters (6.6 feet), and contains 2MB of internal storage, and a micro SD slot expandable up to 32 GB. It also has a microphone and an LED light.”

This year Wired is sending their reporters to cover CES only using phones.
What a crazy, insane, minigame inside the biggest news week for tech.

Instead of the usual mix of old hands and greenhorns, WIRED’s crew is comprised entirely of CES veterans. Which means that covering it would be, like, easy for our team. Easy, that is, if we didn’t intentionally make things harder. So we’re not letting them use computers.
This year at CES, our core crew of reporters can use only their phones to cover the show—this includes any text, images, video or audio content they create. No DSLRS, no laptops; no fancy compact-system cameras or iPads. Just phones. (Our photo department reserves the right to swap out terrible images; you’re welcome.) We’ll call it our CES Mobile ChallengeSmartphone Superchallenge Smartphone Thunderdome. And to make it more interesting, no two reporters will use the same brand of handset–or even the same platform. We’re giving each of them a different rig and pitting them against each other in a winner-takes-all blogging smackdown.

I was working for the video team at The Verge and covered CES 2012. It was crazy, insane, and I have no idea how anyone can do it without a laptop. If only to see what happens, I’m definitely going to keep an eye on Wired this week.
I look forward to the editorials following. Especially, “My CES with a Blackberry Z30”. Oh, and I’m definitely rooting for the Lumia 1020.
