Slideshow: CES Unveiled, Cool New Products

We headed straight for the annual CES Unveiled event, where we got a sneak peek at some gear and gadgets. The lines were long but the results well worth it. Check out this slideshow for an early look at some of the products we liked best. Also inside, find images of this year's innovation and design award winners. We saw the gamut of hardware -- everything from rapid scanning all-in-one printe

It's an all-in-one device, combining print/scan/fax/copy capabilities. The color inkjet is impressive, but this model's standout feature is its cutting edge scanning technology.

Using a built-in 10 megapixel camera, it scans by snapping an actual photo of documents. This transforms them from a paper to digital version in as few as three seconds. You can preview your scan immediately on the front of the Genesis. A suite of some 40 apps adds even more functionality to the Genesis. Such apps let you easily send images to cloud products TripIt or Evernote. Not too shabby for around $399 SRP.
