The Best and Worst From CES 2013 152

from the good-and-bad dept.
CowboyRobot writes "InformationWeek has collected what it considers to be the five dumbest ideas presented at this year's CES. The list includes: 'The HapiFork is an electronic fork that tracks how many mouthfuls of food you consume during a given meal, how many seconds pass between bites, and how long the meal took to complete.' Also on the list is the iPotty, which is about what you would guess from the name. And for balance, the list of the seven standout technologies includes 3M's 84-inch touchscreen display and Parrot's $300 'AR Drone 2.0, a gravity-defying spectacle that puts yesteryear's remote-control helicopters to shame with its ability to dive, spin and whirl through the air.'"

    That 20 inch tablet is NOT one of the worst, its presence on that list really reduces the credibility of the list.

    It's not one of the best either, but it being mentioned alongside the 'HapiFork' is disgraceful.

To spot the expert, pick the one who predicts the job will take the longest and cost the most.
