Power outage hits CES, social media mocks electronics show

Power outage hits CES, social media mocks electronics show

Other new dedicated areas are focused on smart cities, high-tech retail, and sports technology.

CES Tech East: Located at the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), Westgate Hotel, and Renaissance Hotel.

But in addition to technology that might end up in your home, the show is also expected to host downright unusual devices, from a Harry Potter-style automated chess board to a one-person electric auto.

CES is historically home to technology advancements and prototypes from the likes of Google, Samsung and Silicon Valley start ups, however this year commercial road transport solutions aim to steal the show.

In a joint statement the Las Vegas Visitor and Convention Authority, NV Energy and Consumer Technology Association (CTA), said condensation from yesterday's rain was what led to the 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. "We're going quickly to self-driving cars and artificial intelligence, the internet-Of-Things, and things that weren't even in our vocabulary 10 years ago and now they're major parts of CES", he said. As the largest hands-on event of its kind, CES features technology from a wide array of industries. "The most popular exhibits, however, are from our companies like Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics that display the most advanced technologies".

The screen is expected to be slim, offer deep blacks, and feature more than 33 million self-illuminating pixels for the clearest picture to date.

Not all technology at the show immediately came back to life, however.

But keen pundits will also be watching Samsung to see if it does unveil its first "foldable" smartphone, as tipped previous year.

Expect to see consumer electronics of all types making their debut, including the latest smartphones, televisions, monitors, computers and tablets, as well as a host of new smart home devices.

One of the biggest battles at CES 2018 is set to be between Amazon and Google with both wanting to own the voice activation market. It can also be integrated with other smart devices in the home, such as smart hair dryers.

One of the stars of the show is this little robot.
