A year ago, Nintendo was the virtually unchallenged king of the $3.5-billion American video game business. And the Kyoto-based firm ruled its market with an iron fist: demanding high licensing fees, restricting the number of software companies allowed to develop games for Nintendo machines and barring them from developing software for rivals. Its actions sparked numerous lawsuits from retailers and game developers, who charged unfair trade practices. Now the kingdom of Nintendo is under attack.

At the annual Consumer Electronics Show here this week, manufacturers showed off ever-bigger TVs in a size race that showed no signs of slowing. Panasonic this year bragged that billionaire Mark Cuban owns one of its wall-filling, 103-inch plasma displays, which retail for about $70,000.

If "The Jetsons" used to be part of your Saturday morning TV ritual, it's a fair bet that you also used to dream about having a few of George Jetson's household gadgets to monkey around with. George would push a button and out of the ceiling would come the TV. He'd tell a machine to brew him up a cup of coffee and there it would be, piping hot.

Talk about taking your show on the road. The Electronic Drum Machine Shirt lets you get your rock star fantasies off your chest - by playing your chest. The shirt comes with a removable, battery-operated box that amplifies a range of nine built-in drum styles (called kits) when you tap on one of the eight “drum pads” and controls delineated on the wired-up rubber grid attached with Velcro to the front of the shirt. Each “kit” has a choice of seven sounds that can be mixed and matched with sounds in other styles - such as rock, jazz, techno punk - and combined into loops.
