CES 2013 saw fast processors, bendy phones and muppets. Which did you spot?
CES 2013, this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, served up the usual feast of bizarre and beautiful devices. And this week, our quiz rounds up the best of the crazy crop.
New devices included a bendy phone, a waterproof one and a giant tablet. Meanwhile, with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800, Nvidia’s Tegra 4 and Samsung’s Exynos 5, there were contenders for the crown of the fastest mobile processors – all of them based on ARM cores, we noticed.

But it’s the odder gadgets that we like, and CES 2013 delivered on these, with novel headsets, smart ovens, and the highly-anticipated Pebble wireless watch making their appearance at the show.
Many people felt that CES has outlived its usefulness, and the torch of its keynote has passed from Microsoft (which held that spot for more than a dozen years) to mobile processor maker Qualcomm, raising questions about whether there really is anything there for business users.
It’s also been noted that a lot of exciting products now emerge elsewhere. But that’s beside the point. The show once again rounded up some crazy gear, and generated the kind of excitement the industry needs.
And it also gave us material for a more than usually gadget-heavy quiz.
