Many like to call these e-readers, or e-book readers or even e-paper display devices, like the Kindle, BeBook is a device with a display that looks exactly like as if you were reading from paper. Of course, compared to paper, this is much more friendlier to the environment in that you’re not wasting any paper.

The BeBook which retailed at £249.99 both online and at the show, can read almost any popular file formats that you can think of, pdf, mobi, prc, epub, lit, txt, fb2, doc, html, rtf, djvu, wol, ppt, mbp, chm, bmp, jpg, png, gif, tif, rar, zip, mp3 (for audio books)

Being a huge fan of bikes and eco-friendly products, I managed to sneak off to the bike stand area for some exploration! Pictured below is the A2B Hybrid electric bike by Ultra Motor which comes in black and white paint finish, and I must say these bikes looked fab and very precious. With so much focus on all things electric these days, you might be excited to know that the A2B’s lithium ion battery costs as little as 6 pence to recharge overnight. The A2B’s battery is not difficult to handle at all as it is detachable and can be charged by connecting a cable to any wall socket.

Here at the Gadget Show Live, JAYS Earphones, specialists in quality earphones, headphones and audio accessories showcased some of their latest products including the c-JAYS headphones. Much like the Able Planet foldable noise cancelling headphones we reviewed a few months ago, the c-JAYS are also ergonomic in its design.

Equipped with JAYS Elastic Multi Layer diaphragm speakers, the c-JAYS deliver precise clarity, providing balanced sound with detailed highs, rich mids and powerful lows. We liked the design and style of the c-JAYS which were lightweight, slim and did I say stylish? Check out the extendable arms which are made from tough glass fiber reinforced nylon in the pictures after the jump.

The ReVoMaze is a solid, quite heavy (1.03 kg), metallic mysterious looking puzzle gadget from the British inventor Ashton Pitt. At the show, we got to try it out and embarrassingly, didn’t have a clue what it was about, I should probably have paid more attention at the time! Concealed inside a grooved metal tube is a precision crafted cylindrical labyrinth. Twist and turn the maze out of the tube to release a certificate of ownership and a code to place you on the Revomaze leader board.

Currently only the blue one (i-Blue) is available for ordering online with a pricetag of £69.95 but a few more colours will soon be released, each with a varying degree of difficulty. ReVoMaze “racks” are also available for you to showoff your collected, completed puzzles, and of course to show your friends how intelligent you are!
