What’s in the box?! It’s a Moto E!

Though we were expecting a Moto 360, what we got is potentially much better. Today, sitting on the porch waiting for me when I woke, was a box form Motorola. We all knew it was coming, but what was inside remained a bit of a mystery. A refresh to their smartwatch offering was what had our fingers crossed, but news over the past few days that a Moto E with LTE was possibly coming tossed a wrench into our desires. A new Moto E was exactly what we got, too.

Crossy Road hands-on gameplay

With so many games on Google Play Store, the competition is fierce in terms of fighting for popularity. Crossy Roads picks up an old school concept of the retro game Frogger and utilizes the graphics of the popular modern game Minecraft. It looks catchy and has made its way across the Play Store and is catching a lot of attention. Taking on two popular concepts and forging them, seems like the new way to get a shot at fame in the mobile game industry.

Razer Forge TV hands-on: Android living room gaming levels up

Razer revealed earlier at CES 2015 its own take as Android gaming in the living room with the Forge TV, but its take isn't simply a box or controller that you hook up to a TV and press Play. Razer's idea is more of a whole ecosystem that includes the Forge TV itself, a couple of surprisingly good controllers, and even the software that runs inside. We got to test all of these ourselves to see just how much promise this latest attempt really holds.

Audi smartwatch hands-on: Android Wear, WebOS in play

Audi showed off a lot of smart automotive plans at CES 2015, but the subset of Audi fans and Android users were probably more enchanted by the car maker's smartwatch venture. Unfortunately, there has been some confusion on whether the company is planning to bank on Android Wear as initially presumed or on LG's webOS smartwatch venture, which was rumored a few months back. The slightly good news is that Audi is actually banking on both, and hinted that the Apple Watch might be joining too. But the rest of the story isn't as simple as that.

Mad Catz L.Y.N.X hybrid controller hands-on

CES 2015 is bringing us loads of new technology content and Mad Catz was sitting safely tucked away from the competition. Making the trip out to their suite made the feeling that their content was a little bit more exclusive and that if you really wanted to check out their CES line, you’d make the effort. I was not disappointed as I was able to get hands-on with their latest mobile remote control announced this morning, the L.Y.N.X.

Polaroid Selfie smartphone hands-on: part of a whole new line

Walking on the floor today at CES 2015, Polaroid has introduced their first line of smartphones.

The rest are still in generic mode, prepared for Polaroid’ future in camera centric smartphones. Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop and powered with an Octa-core processor, the Polaroid Selfie is a robust seemingly unique design.

Hand-on with Lamborghini’s Antares, 88 luxury smartphones

A lot of the exhibitors here at CES 2015 are showing off their latest wares, but some are not exactly the newest but are still perhaps worth flaunting. One of those is Lamborghini, who is putting on display two of its rather exorbitant smartphones, one of which dates back to 2013. The Antares and the 88 Tauri are probably one of the more aggressive luxury phones you'll ever set your eyes on, and that is most likely by design. After all, nothing says luxury sports car than a smartphone that looks like a luxury sports car.

Sony SmartEyeglass Attach: hands-on with an adaptable eyepiece

Google Glass and a whole bunch of other attempts at smart glasses, despite differences in implementation and concept, have one thing in common. They all require you to accept the vision of their designers, instead of being able to show off your own personal flair. Not so with Sony's second iteration of its SmartEyeglass device, called the SmartEyeglass Attach!. As the name implies, it was designed to attach to any kind of eyewear, glasses, goggles, or whatnot, instead of arriving welded unto someone else glasses.
