Sure, we cover alot of the more popular items, however that is only a part of CES. If you dive deeper into the halls you will come to some smaller booths and *some* interesting gadgets. That being said, one of those that we spied on the show floor (and found interesting) was the Octa Tablet Tail. This is a gadget that can be used with a tablet or ereader (or something else of similar shape and size) and allows you to hold the device or prop it up on the table. The Octa stand features a suction cup Vacuum Dock that you pump to secure to the device. The Whale Tail portion can be used or removed depending on whether you are planning to hold or stand the device. The Whale Tail portion is flexible and can bend around to sit in different positions on the table or to fit a little tighter around your hand when holding. Anyway, while we only had a minute or two to sit and play, it seems like a system that works rather well. The Octa Whale Tail + Vacuum Dock is priced at $59.99 and is currently available for pre-order from Octa.com.
