Today was the last day of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) here in Las Vegas. After the first two days I wasn’t sure that I could survive the last two. Walking the floor with that Exhibit Hall Shuffle is hard on the hips and the feet. Frequent rest stops during the day and a couple of Aleve at the end of the day helped.
This is a huge show with 2400 vendors and about 140,00 or more attendee’s of which 30,000 are from overseas. If there was a theme this year it was Connectivity. Ways to connect all of our favorite phones, ipods, cars, and TV’s were demonstrated. Tablet computers, 3D-TV’s, smart appliances, medical services, senior services, and even electric/hybrid cars were demonstrated.
Several very large booths dominated some of the halls. Companies like LG Electronics, NBC-Universal, Verizon, Motorola, Microsoft, and Intel to name a few. NBC-Universal broadcast live shows for MSNBC, Bravo, and Oxygen.
I talked to an NBC intern who wanted me to do Karaoke for Oxygen. I declined. I assured him he didn’t want to hear me sing.
Hardball with Chris Matthews broadcast live from the NBC-Universal booth at the show.
Just what every trunk needs. A TV and enough speaker power to raise the back wheels off the ground.
How about an amplifier to drive all those speakers. About 10,000 watts I would guess. It is 3 feet long so where do you store it?
How about a speaker that requires an engine hoist to lift it.
This is for you Jack. Think you can fit this setup on your 4-wheeler?
How about dressing up your mule with enough lights and spakers to scare every deer for miles around.
Not just one TV but three.
It was a great show with lots of miles walked.
