CeBIT 2004 Part 5

Well here we are: my final report from CeBIT 2004. There is so much more to show you all but so little space so I am going to fill this last chapter with some of the goodies coming to a store near you soon. Some you may have seen already.

Modding: whilst many manufacturers had \"cosmetically enhanced\" products intended for the PC enthusiast looking for a flashy bolt-on, sadly I found little to satisfy most modders. That is assuming you want something more than pretty lights.

Sunbeam were one of a handful of exhibitors including Beantech and i-Cute trying to cater primarily to the modder. They were proud of their stackable LED strings. These can be connected end to end in various colours to make Xmas lights for your PC.

Nice clear cases filled with coloured lights and shiny things, and let us not forget the indispensable cigar lighter, retractable ash tray and cup holder!
