Casio TRYX Raises the Bar with Radical New Form Factor

Its a new era in digital imaging for Casio and a big day at CES for their digital photography division. Let’s begin with the revolutionary new TRYX. Featuring a new “tricked-out design,” the TRYX is .59-inches thick and has a variable frame design, allowing it to adapt to the user’s preferred shooting style and get the perfect shot from virtually every angle. The LCD screen can rotate up to 270-degrees and users can even flip out and rotate the body so that the camera can hang from a hook or doorknob–it’s a very cool new design that we’re anxious to play with in person (translation: Casio…please send us one as soon as possible). Thanks to today’s technology, the TRYX is also socially aware, so to speak, offering easy integration and sharing with many of today’s most popular platforms such as Facebook, Flickr and YouTube. Check the full release and specs after the jump.

Skype Launches Video Calling on iPhone Ahead of CES

It seems like just yesterday I was talking about Facetime and Skype’s impending announcement of video calling for the iPhone – wait – that was three days ago in Our Road to CES Feature. Today, Skype has officially pulled the covers off of what may just be the biggest FaceTime rival to date. Skype’s official iOS client is now able to make video calls, allowing iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4 and fourth generation iPod Touch users to share real-time video calling with each other, as well as PC Skype users with webcams. The service is free, as usual with Skype, and works over both WiFi and 3G; our complete hands-on will be up later this week. Check the full release after the jump.

Our Road to CES 2011: Volume V – Skype

2010 has been quite the year for many different types of technology. We’ve touched on tablets galore–so why not shift our focus to Video chatting. Sure, video chatting has been around for quite some time (a la iChat, Skype, MSN Messenger, etc.) but never as commercialized as when it was announced for the iPhone 4 in a new form called Facetime.

Since Facetime’s announcement and subsequent release in the iPhone 4, we’ve seen it spread to the iPod Touch and finally, on the Mac itself–albeit, in beta form. Video chat is rapidly expanding through the ease of Facetime, and other platforms are either becoming more and more interested, or evolving their already released technology, such as Skype.
