The gadgets and gizmos that caught our eye at CES

From genuine 3D technology to slick new e-readers, these products are the best of the crop from this year's International Consumer Electronics show. Get all CES news here.

Boxee gets boxed

D-Link is the first vendor to come out with a dedicated piece of hardware for the lauded Boxee home media management software.

The box is oddly shaped, but it won't take up much space when it sits next to a TV. It streams internet video and connects wirelessly to your computer, so it can play back media files, such as music, photos, and video, on your TV.

You get Boxee's cool user interface, as well as a long list of supported file formats; you can play virtually any kind of video on it.

A Boxee box alternative

Imation's yet-unnamed Wireless USB shark fin plugs into your LCD television via HDMI, grabbing audio and video from your computer at 15MB per second.

Just plug in the included USB dongle, and you'll be flying with 720p video from up to 30 feet away.

I like it, but I'd like it a lot more if TV makers would bundle or integrate
