Among the many goodies to be found at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Electronista spotted the Belkin Thunderstorm Handheld Home Theater speaker stand ($200). It combines a folio-style iPad case with front-facing speakers and features a free app to help customize the sound to different kinds of media. The case will be available both in 30-pin and Lightning connector styles, with the latter becoming available in the spring. The unit turns an iPad into a 9.7-inch landscape HD cinema and offers pass-trough access to the rear camera, mic, headset jack and other controls.

G-Technology unveils G-Drive mini, G-RAID mini external drives Firewire may not be present on some of the latest Mac models, but its far from dead as far as G-Technology is concerned. The company has brought out a new bus-powered G-Drive mini ($244) that features two FW800 connectors and a USB 3.0 port as well. The unit is shipping now, offering a 1TB, 7,200-rpm drive for storage. G-Tech is also offering the larger G-RAID mini ($552), a RAID 0 device that sports a pair of 7,200rpm 1TB drives and supports a variety of high-definition video formats, including ProRes 422HQ, HDV, DVCPRO HD and XDCAM HD. It offers two FW800, one USB 2.0 port and an eSATA connector. The G-RAID mini is expected to ship this quarter. Both devices come with a standard three-year warranty. Griffin, Crayola team up for light pens, kids activity apps, more Accessory maker Griffin Technology and Crayola have collaborated on a suite of thee new products aimed at encouraging kid's creativity. Among the items is the Color & Play Workstation ($20), a kind of iPad snap-in case that includes room to store electronic crayons and other input devices while protecting the iPad screen. The Crayola Digital Activity Center ($40) is a kind of lap desk with the same idea in mind: it shows the iPad's screen but protects it as children use it as a giant coloring book and dry-erase board. Finally, the company offers a Light Marker ($30), a pen-like stylus that lets children draw in the air in front of the iPad rather than on a protective screen. It uses the front facing camera to capture "strokes" and display them on screen, and is supported with a number of apps. The Light Marker will ship in the spring.
