LAS VEGAS (AP) -- It's been the usual mix of the interesting and the odd at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Among the more interesting offerings is Qualcomm's FLO TV, which sends news, sports, and entertainment shows to cellphones. Only a few types of phones can currently receive the signals, but Qualcomm has teamed with Mophie to create an external battery pack that doubles as a FLO TV receiver. No word yet how much it will cost.
Several developments on the 3-D front. They include a 3-D camera from Fujifilm, a filter that can make your regular TV look like 3-D, and 3-D printing that takes data files and turns them into full-color sculptures.
And, a new cleaning robot called Mint that can do its work while you watch the tube.
