>> [ music ] ^m00:00:08 Hey there Rich Sebaro with CNET TV coming at you from Showstoppers in New York City where they're showcasing some cool holiday gifts from the brand new Times Center here in Midtown Manhattan. Let's take a spin around the floor and see if there's anything worth putting under that tree. You know there are a lot of devices you can plug into your USB port but only one of them turns into an actual phone jack, literally. And look at everything you get for just twenty bucks a year your own phone number, call waiting, and deluxe caller ID, voice mail, directory assistance, and you can ring up to three phone numbers at once. It's almost too good to be true.
>> It is true.
>> It is true, this is Dan he's the inventor of the magic jack.
>> Just pick a phone number, you get it within seconds then the next thing you know you hear the dial tone, free local, free long distance.
>> This is Nickelodeon's empower which is a new line with Nickelodeon animation it's a complete consumer electronics line; it features digital imaging, multi media products, and consumer electronics products. This is our Spongebob flash USB camera that you just click off Spongebob's shorts and you can upload your pictures directly to your computer.
>> You have to take off Spongebob's shorts to upload the pictures? Man I've been meaning to get that removed. This is the Iclops a two hundred times magnifying toy, its fifty bucks and the kids are gonna have a field day with it. The little tiny camera here and some lights and you just hold it up to pretty much anything and see it magnify two hundred times so these are some bills they've set up here, you can see the intricate details on there, a check you can see the signature line up close and personal. This is the kind of toy that you would have loved to have when I was a kid and with technology nowadays you can have it. I had a microscope, now you have a two hundred times Iclops. It's really simple it just hooks up to your TV using AV ports and takes a double A battery.
>> Why am I wearing this you ask? Because attached to this helmet is the first blue tooth headset for a helmet, so you can use it in two different ways. This is from Blue Ant wireless, you can pair it up with your cellphone and make calls easily from inside the helmet or you can get a second one, put it on a buddy or a wife, on another bike, or on the same bike and intercom to each other over blue tooth up to 500 feet. Alright now I gotta go ride, see you later. I'm going to leave you with this, a pocket presenter from a company called Ice Rage, take a look at how tiny this thing is and it's three in one. Not only is it a wireless blue tooth mouse but it's also a presentation tool with my little favorite, laser beam, then in the future it's going to become your cellphone, voice over IT of course. I'm Rich Semaro with CNET TV hope you had as much fun at Showstoppers as I did, see you later. Hello?
