"What we're seeing at CES is some categories we didn't have past year". The Samsung Galaxy X could be the first smartphone to feature a truly bendable touchscreen - technology Samsung previewed at a previous Consumer Electronics Show. Since then, four other executives from Samsung's IT-leading affiliates gave keynote addresses at the CES. A company with a smart sleep device called Aromarest began an email pitch by saying, "Having the lights go out, as they did today at CES, is one way to get some sleep". We didn't have smart cities.

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.

Three teams of Las Vegas-area student entrepreneurs will compete at CES® 2018 – owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) – pitching their original business ideas to three expert technology innovators, who will serve as judges and select a winning team.

Large swaths of the sprawling Las Vegas Convention Center lost power at about 11:15 a.m. local time, shutting down brightly lit company booths and darkening rooms used by hundreds of journalists covering CES. Here you'll find many worldwide exhibitors as well as innovations in audio, drones, gaming, augmented and virtual reality, vehicle technology, video, wireless devices, wireless services, and digital imaging/photography.

On Las Vegas' physical streets, traffic crawled on Tuesday as thousands of CES attendees shuttled between hotels and conference venues in heavy rain. However, Kohler says it will also offer connected bathroom products featuring Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit technologies in the future - an implicit nod to the fact that the competition in the voice technology and smart home market is still wide open. This is the CES epicenter for the advertising, content, marketing and entertainment communities, hosting a variety of C-Space activities, including conference sessions, networking events, exhibits and hospitality suites.
