Green is Good: Top 10 Green Gadgets at CES 2010 Part 2

The Top 5 list of Green Products at CES Web includes some cameras and photo accessories. Yes, Camera equipment can be sustainable too. We already published some AMOLED and LED photo frames in Part 1 of this series. But it gets better in Part 2. CES 2010 brought to the world an amazing collection of Eco-friendly products that will dominate the market for years to come. Top 5 covers the very best of CES 2010.

5. Nikon Coolpix S1000pj Digital Camera with inbuilt projector

No doubt this camera is very cool because it comes with an inbuilt projector and is actually the worlds first camera to offer this technology. However, what makes it sustainable is the fact that it has longer battery life (Approximately 220 shots) meaning it consumes less power  and the fact that it eliminates the use of multiple tools for image projection. Powering up a projector, a computer and a camera at the same time take up a lot of energy but with Nikons Coolpix S1000pj you can enjoy image projections and much more with a single and simple gadget.

4. Casios Green Slim Video Projector

Casio launched the world’s first Mercury free projector at CES 2010. Casio named it’s line of projectors the “Green Slim” line. These projectors use a “hybrid LED and laser system” and beams image of upto 3000 lumens.

3. ASUS WaveFace Ultra OLED Bracelet

It is literally a bracelet, but this isn’t ASUS’s attempt at making jewellery. In reality this is a Smartphone bracelet launched by ASUS.  Don’t be confused it’s an OLED internet ready cell phone that is designed to empower the user and offer control through the gesture of your fingers. See video below for more details:

2. ASUS Seashell 1005HA Net Book

ASUS won EPEAT Certification for 3 of it’s Net Books at CES 2010. 90% of the parts used in the Seashell 1005HA Net Book and 80% of it’s packaging is created from recycled materials. The ASUS Net Book also offers longer battery life and ASUS as an organization is pushing hard to use Green design behind most of it’s products.

1. SAMSUNG NX10 Camera

Samsung released it’s NX10 at CES 2010. The camera is a hybrid that has a 3-inch AMOLED display. Digital Trends reports that, “Samsung has announced its new NX10 camera, which the company is billing as a hybrid camera with the “heart of a DSLR” packed into a frame not much larger than a compact digital camera. And the NX10 seems to be backing the specs to back up some of that claim, with a 14.6 megapixel resolution, an APS-C size CMOS sensor, a 3-inch AMOLED display, HD video capability, a new DRIMe II Pro image processing engine…and the ability to use those interchangeable lenses the DSLR crowd so love. What’s missing? The optical mirrors at the heart of a DSLR system.” This Camera is our very favorite Green Gadget and we wish that more manufacturers would adopt green technology and make it accessible to media professionals.
