Got Batteries? Power Outage Stalls CES Gadget Show

The news and highlights to expect from CES 2018

Peterbilt Motors Company solidifies its position as an industry technology leader with its display at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas NV.

People gathering in Las Vegas for one of the world's biggest tech shows are being encouraged to download a new app to help keep them safe during the conference.

Companies at the event usually show off new televisions, smart devices, smartphones, virtual assistants, home appliances and other gadgets.

The power outage hit shortly after 11am on the second day of CES.

Not all technology at the show immediately came back to life, however.

I will be particularly keen to see the tech developments in IoT, artificial intelligence and augmented reality, especially given we are now closer to the launch of 5G.

CES 2018: What trends will we see at CES 2018?

One concern about this type of smart home technology is whether outside third parties will be collecting this information and what they may plan to do with it. Internet-of-things will be making a bigger push at the show.

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. With AI playing a growing role across a range of technological areas, from biometric identification to autonomous driving, a number of major companies have stepped up their R&D in this area, and that boom is going to be reflected at CES. Tech giants will be previewing a glut of new laptops, phones, tvs, and automotive advances.

The most important trade expo in terms of consumer electronics is getting started in Las Vegas. "That really wasn't apparent two or three years ago".

Innovative modes of transport are also expected to play a big role in the show this year, from an electric auto created to seat just one person, the Solo from Canadian firm Electra Meccanica, to the world's smallest underwater scooter, the Sublue WhiteShark Mix. Last year's IFA saw an influx of exciting smart home products; think smart wireless speakers that connect you to your home network, and automated fridges that bring you beer.
