Over 120,000 technology professionals descended upon Las Vegas, Nevada for the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES is an annual technology trade show sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association. Only open to the technology industry, CES is the premier venue to debut the latest and greatest gadgets. In fact, some of our most ubiquitous electronics debuted at the trade show: including the VCR, camcorder, and CD player. It remains Las Vegas’s largest annual conference and generates over $150 million for the city.
The hottest trends at CES this year include: Ultra HDTVs (where looking at the screen feels like you’re looking out a window), a plethora of tablets and laptop-tablet hybrids and health & fitness technology, to name a few. Despite the show’s enormous size (over 35 American football fields), iFabbo member Stephanie Viggiano was able to find both practical and fun products—keeping the on-the-go beauty and fashion blogger in mind!

This was one of our favorites! A lot of young, budding designers will gravitate toward this. You become your own designer using Sculpteo’s online 3D printing service. Once you upload your CAD file to the cloud, you can choose from over 45 materials to construct your masterpiece. From phone cases to larger pieces of art, Sculpteo takes roughly a week to build and ship to your front door. You can expressly create cases for your iPhone on Sculpteo’s 3DP Case app, available for free on the iTunes App Store. A standard iPhone case made with polyamide costs around $25 US. Prices vary depending upon the shape and materials chosen.
Monster Cable’s Diamond Tears Headphones
We love everything rose gold… so of course we couldn’t resist! Designed by pop artist JYP inconjunction with Monster Cable, Diamond Tears headphones seek to be both a haute couture and high-performance audio experience. These on-ear headphones don’t use amplification or noise cancellation so that you hear music the way it was created in studio. Diamond Tears includes Monster’s ControlTalk that allows you to use your mobile phone to play music, hands-free, in addition to taking calls. $299.95.
