CES Roundup: Everything going down at CES 2019
From smart toilets to smart homes, you’ll find it here.
The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, is upon us again and with it brings a veritable cornucopia of all things tech. We expect that some of the themes running through electronic offerings from the world’s tech brands will include voice assistants of all kinds, AI in everything, and RGB (because why not?).
Also expect lots of things with 5G in them, while the network infrastructure is still being built in the USA, it’s been running for a while now in South Korea, home of many of the tech giants that will be showing off their wares this week.
With over 4,500 exhibiting companies, and over 700,000 products, we’ll be bringing you the best of the best – anything that caught our eye, made us chuckle, or downright made us go WTFBBQ.
We’ll be updating this post with links throughout the week so keep checking back in for more CES 2019 coverage.
