CES. The Consumer Electronics Show. The largest electronics show in the world, and possibly the largest trade show of any kind in the world. Over 4,000 exhibitors show off their inventions and toys to over 180,000 people in Las Vegas.
This was our first year at CES, and our first time to Las Vegas. There were all sorts of intriguing things at CES – more drones than you can, well, fly a drone over. Self driving taxi rides. A machine to fold your clothes for you. Kodak’s failed attempt at joining the blockchain craze. And a power outage that took down the main hall with an amusing sense of irony.
Enjoy some of the sights before we dig in to all the wonderful food we came across…
The Samsung City
Ok, so people weren’t really upset. Netflix decided to run some viral marketing for their show Altered Carbon. They took out a space on the floor, and then staged protests against the fake company all throughout the convention. Where do we submit our resume for that job?
Self Driving Taxis
The LG Experience
LG’s presence wasn’t as immediately flashy as Samsung’s. But this walk through a hall of curved OLED screens was like nothing we’ve ever done. Incredibly impractical and beautifully sublime.
