Flying the relatively short distance from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, this much became certain: Less than thrilling keynotes aside, CES is still a huge draw. I was surrounded by CES-bound travelers--some flying in just to wander around, at least one with a CE product to show off.
Laura O'Donnell (EVP Product Development), seated just to my left, was toting a ContourHD, an incredibly small and lightweight 1080p HD lipstick-style camera designed specifically for rugged use in a variety of settings. (Think helmet cams and extreme sports.)
From the website:
ContourHD is the World's First and Smallest wearable video camera. It's light but armored body "slides and locks" ContourHD onto a series of mounts for your goggles, helmet, handle bars, vehicle, or anywhere else you want. Wear HD video and record your adventures hands-free!
I'm told there won't be a Vholdr booth at CES, but this is the sort of connection that can really make a difference: People like Laura O'Donnell walking around, excited about their products, and eager to show them off.
