Got batteries? Outage stalls giant tech show in Las Vegas

Got batteries? Outage stalls giant tech show in Las Vegas

This multi-hotel venue will feature the innovative power behind the industry's emerging technology, including revolutions in fitness and health, the Internet of Things, wearables, smart home, sensors and other high-growth technologies changing the world.

Peterbilt Motors Company solidifies its position as an industry technology leader with its display at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas NV. Playing both sides, Panasonic also showed how it is bringing Google Assistant technology to cars as well.

The Consumer Technology Association, which runs CES, tweeted that it was an "isolated power outage".

Set to run January 9-12, CES 2018 yesterday provided a sneak preview of some of this year's "Best of Innovation" award winners at the Unveiled Las Vegas media event.

Now in its 51st year, CES is expected to attract more than 180,000 visitors and will include over 4000 exhibitors across its nearly 241,000sqm of show floor. We didn't have smart cities. Here you'll find many global exhibitors as well as innovations in audio, drones, gaming, augmented and virtual reality, vehicle technology, video, wireless devices, wireless services, and digital imaging/photography.

The Consumer Electronics Show was shut down briefly due to a blackout. As the largest hands-on event of its kind, CES features technology from a wide array of industries.

And in a sign of the huge energy draw from the tech show, once the crowds were let back in, the return to full, blazing electronic glory was slow.

"The successful development of the world's first 8K OLED display is a milestone for the 8K era and underscores the exciting potential of OLED", LG Display chief technology officer In-Byung Kang said.

One of the stars of the show is this little robot. That product will be just one of a host of smart home devices launched, with everything from connected cat doors that open automatically to cordless, infra-red hair dryers revealed at CES.
