3D printing, notebooks and more tablets than you can poke a stick at
Techworld Australia dropped down to CeBIT at Darling Harbour to have a look at some of the gear and gadgets on offer. These glasses are for watching movies on a smartphone. Or for your next Star Trek party.
Not for watching movies: This is an eye massager. I wasn't game to try one.
Probably the coolest thing on display at CeBIT: A meagphone for your iPhone. It's not powered -- but its design means it amplifies sounds when you slot a phone in the end.
I thought this was pretty neat: A way to store and charge multiple iPads.
A multi-port charger for iPads.
Some cool LEGO-style robot thingies.

I'm sure this motorbike has something to do with Lenovo's messaging, but not sure what.
Tablets. They were everywhere.
HP had a range of its thin clients on display. The company recently unveiled an all-in-one thin client [[artnid:424203|capable of being powered by an Ethernet cable]]. HP claims the t410 AiO is the first all-in-one thin client that supports the 802.3at Type 1 Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, which means it is capable of drawing its power from a network connection.
NBN Co had a truck at CeBIT.
A robot arm that refused to stay still for me to photograph it.

And some very nice tablets.
