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.

Late morning on Wednesday, the power went down in a main hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, sending thousands of vendors and visitors outdoors or to other venues.

We will also spend time with Australian media attending the show to talk about the key trends and help our customers understand what they can expect to see in the not too distant future, and why the strength of our networks will be pivotal in helping Australian consumers and businesses get the most out of them.

Sales of smart speakers are expected to almost double in the U.S., to $3.8 billion, from past year according to Lesley Rohrbaugh and Steve Koenig, researchers with the Consumer Technology Association, which organises the annual CES trade event.

Different areas would also be added to the event to accommodate emerging technologies, he said, including augmented reality apps and unusual vehicles.

CES is open to members of the technology industry, and attendees must be at least 18 years old. We didn't have smart cities.

TV maker LG's OLED Canyon display demo, with 246 OLED panels and more than 30 high-definition generators, took almost an hour to get back in full operation.

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.

South Korean tech giant Samsung also showcased its own assistant, "Bixby", which is integrated in its 2018 Smart TV. The Samsung Galaxy X could be the first smartphone to feature a truly bendable touchscreen - technology Samsung previewed at a previous Consumer Electronics Show. "Buddy" - made by French startup Blue Frog Robotics - is a Google Assistant voice-controlled robot that can roam around a family home.

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.
