Every year, the technology industry gathers in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), an event that often sets the agenda for the coming 12 months.
CES is the biggest technology show in the world but there has been one glaring absence since 1992 – Apple. However, the company’s decision not to attend hasn’t stopped it from leaving its mark in other ways.
Cynical tech pundits and journalists have been declaring CES dead for years. And yet, the annual confab in Las Vegas still attracted 200 000 attendees.
The world’s first foldable-screen smartphone and a robot that teaches people to play table tennis have been among the eye-catching attractions on display as the CES tech show opened in Las Vegas.
LG has unveiled a new TV which can be rolled up to store away or viewed at a range of angles.
A foot motion controller has been unveiled at CES for the PlayStation VR, which may address the issue of movement within virtual reality games.
Apple won’t be placing a giant booth at the big CES tech trade show starting on Sunday in Las Vegas, but its recent sales warning – and the country it blamed for the shortfall – will undoubtedly be the talk of the show.
