Introduced this morning on the floor of CES, The ChillHub is a refrigerator with two 4-port USB hubs, built-in Wi-Fi, and an open-source iOS-compatible app. The idea is that you can access sensor data and control the fridge components remotely. This “first-of-its-kind platform” enables the development of new hardware products that benefit from operating inside a cooled space.

FirstBuild, the company that developed the “smart fridge,” describe ChillHub as an open development platform designed for “makers, hackers, tinkerers and developers”.

Head below to see more new products unveiled at CES this morning including: Harman, SanDisk, Linksys, and Netgear.

Going to be priced at $99.99, the new Endure Wireless earphones feature great sounding music and call control with the benefit of extremely lightweight ear-buds. Made for athletes who want to listen to their favorite songs when working out, they feature what Harman calls the best ergonomic solution for a behind-the-neck form factor. The slim, flexible band naturally adapts to the user’s neck while maintaining a comfortable fit for all-day use.

Expected to land in stores is May 2015. For more info, checkout the Yurbuds website.

SanDisk now offers the SSD Plus, a 2.5” entry-level drive, and the SanDisk Ultra II mSATA SSD, a new form factor for the SanDisk Ultra II SSD product line. The SanDisk SSD Plus targets laptop and desktop PC users who want to significantly improve system performance. The SanDisk Ultra II mSATA SSD is for laptop and tablet users looking to increase the capacity and overall performance of their mSATA-enabled systems.
