The Consumer Electronics Show is big business. It runs in January each year, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, one of the sprawling venues for which Google provides Indoor Maps.
If you’ve never heard of CES, it’s where tons of new tech is debuted, from new tablets to robotics, new games to 3D printing.
Incidentally, CES has an interesting history that goes back to 1967. It was the place that technology such as the VCR first saw the light of day.
In the ‘90s, CES used to coincide with the AVN Adult Video awards; you must read a wonderful essay by David Foster Wallace, with lots of fascinating insight into both shows (the most popular venue at CES for a number of years was the Adult Software exhibition, but thankfully things have moved on since then, tech is even bigger business and attracts less of these crazy sideshows).
Anyway, I digress; let’s have a rundown of CES 2014 interesting product launches so far that might just affect the world of digital and marketing.
