9 Cool Items For Golfers At CES

January 2014

The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is billed as the largest such show in the world, featuring more than 3,200 exhibitors and an estimated 20,000 new products, ranging from wearables to ultra high-definition TVs to connected cars.

While the conference doesn't include a dedicated golf zone, the week-long event did showcase at least a few intriguing finds for golfer who look to gadgets to improve their game or to make a round more enjoyable.

Here are some products that stood out amid a sea of recently released or forthcoming gadgets at the annual tech confab.

What could make those marathon Saturday rounds in the dead of summer more bearable? Solar Cool Technologies might have the answer with its solar-powered cooler, essentially a portable mini-fridge that gives you quick and easy access to those cold ones. If you use battery-draining GPS golf app, the cooler also includes a USB port to keep smartphones juiced up. As long as there's sunlight, the cooler won't run out of power. It's not for the budget-minded, though, with a hefty $1,200 price tag. Of course, it's also an excellent accessory for camping, tailgating and other outdoor activities, making the cost slightly more palatable. The cooler will be available in June.
