Unveiled at CES 2009, the Sure Shot Rifle by CTA Digital is three guns in one. It features a removable stock and barrel, three modes, and is compatible with nearly all shooting games on the Wii. Video after the break.

An integrated, secondary display is the HP FireFly’s highlight, especially for those who love widgets. Inside, you’ll find “dual graphics cards, quad-core processor and what they call 5.1 sound.” Click here for first picture in gallery.

It’s an interesting engineering oddity, fun to toy with, but it’s no wonder they only built 50 or 60 of them, with no plan to release them commercially.

Finally, Dell has officially unveiled Adamo. While technical specifications have not yet been announced, it does however, appear to sport a leather wrapped case. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Dell also said something about using high quality materials in the design, and I’m guessing this thing is going to be super expensive.
