Looking like something from the planet Ork, the Sound Egg from Acousticom is a personal 5.1 surround sound system perfect for watching movies, playing video games or listening to music. Just hook up your audio source and make yourself comfortable. The sound is high-quality and self-contained--you won't be bothered by outside noise and your neighbors won't be bothered by your thumping bass.
The Sound Egg comes in seven standard external colors, but can be customized to match any decor. You can also choose from a dozen internal acoustic foam colors. Pricing starts at $1,450 with free shipping in the U.S. from Acousticom.
If your idea of fun is playing with a cute, fuzzy animal that isn't really there, seek help immediately or get the EyePet for the Sony PlayStation 3. Using the PS3's Eye camera, you can interact with your EyePet on screen as if it was actually there in front of you.
Play with him (I think it's a he. Who knows?), feed him, tickle him, even drag out his favorite trampoline and let him bounce around for a while. There are plenty of games and activities to keep him entertained.
The EyePet is already available in select markets overseas. It'll be available in the U.S. before the end of the year.

It seems every year at CES, I come across an item that's absolutely fascinating . . . but just a little creepy. In 2010, it's the EyePet.
