Great Gadgets From IFA Consumer Fair

The good, the great and the greatly unnecessary are on show this week at IFA, the world's largest consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany.

The Apple iPad is squarely in most gadget-makers sights, with many new tablet alternatives on show such as Sony's foldable tablet PC which tackles the iPad's screen scratching problem.

3D everything is a huge trend, from cameras to personal gaming goggles and TVs while a duck-shaped TV takes on traditional and potentially dull, black rectangular units.
