CE Antiques Roadshow

No, I am not referring to certain members of the TWICE staff.

Surround Sound: A Look Back

DTS:X and Dolby Atmos are bringing excitement back to the component-audio business.

We felt similar excitement 20 years ago when surround sound made its first big leap, moving beyond matrixed Dolby Surround on VHS Hi-Fi tapes and laserdiscs to 5.1 discrete channels on laserdiscs and then, in 1997, on the new DVD format.

Watch List

The Watch List is an ongoing series that focuses on CE start-ups reaching out to consumers via crowdfunding and other non-traditional methods.  


This smart watch is geared toward swimmers, with a button-less design that users can navigate via gesture control and a PaceKeeper feature that will vibrate to keep swimmers in check of proper pace range. It is, of course, waterproof.
