Gallery: The Buzz on Greener Gadgets at CES


With the Consumer Electronics Show going on in Las Vegas this week, we’ve been dreaming of green electronics innovations that can satisfy our desire for cleaner, greener technology. We might have mentioned that our Greener Gadgets Conference joined forces with CEA this year to showcase a Greener Gadgets section and panel discussion at CES. So, how did people find the push towards Greener Gadgets at CES? Here’s the buzz around the blogosphere about Greener Gadgets and CES 2009…

Discover Magazine liveblogged the Greener Gadgets panel yesterday and said ‘the take-away from the session panel was that if you’re really interested in learning how to build low-power, long-life, non-toxic devices with a small ecological footprint, the kind of places you should visit are Africa and India.’

    Well it was rather disapointing to see the green news from CES. Didn’t see hardly any information about environment or power consumption, Only new features. It seems to me that power onsumption, toxic materials, recycling and environment are still not taken serious.

    Found a few low energy product introductions. Most of them not very accurate about energy: 40% less than something else (that is not defined). Ok all those electronica giants have signed the Climate Savers agreement, but we don’t see any progress. Google did some research and found out that we are spoiling 50 percent of energy.

    Look at Greenpeace’s Guide to Greener Electronics and the conclusion is simple: there is a lot of work to do.

    Consumers, bloggers, you and i, and others should ask more information about energy consumption and heat up the pressure on manufacturers that will help to speed up developments and innovations.
