There’s no better time in Vegas than January, attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It’s commonly accepted that CES sets the tone for the New Year. And CES 2016 made quite an impression with as assortment of technologies, including virtual reality, augmented reality, the Internet of Things (IoT), the connected car, robotics, 3D printing, drones, and the smart home. Of course there’s more to it than just that, but my eyes fixated on this lineup because it’s what interests me the most. But, my eyes did wander a bit.
In a previous life, I often attended CES as a journalist. This was a totally different experience, considering I was there for a full week and not just a few days. To be honest, CES deserves a full week, at least. Nowadays, the show spills over from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and into neighboring hotels. It seems the show gets bigger and bigger each year. Regarding CES and I, we hadn’t seen each other in a decade, but it welcomed me back with open arms.
