- The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas features more than 4,400 exhibitors showcasing the very latest in gizmos, gadgets, and doodads.
- This year, more than 180,000 people are attending CES.
- Some wacky technology has been on display thus far, including a Lamborghini-themed massage chair and cars with foldable legs.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the place where companies like LG, Samsung, and Sony show off their latest TVs, laptops, and other state-of-the-art high tech.
But it’s also the place where some of the weirdest and wildest gadgetry gets its time in the spotlight.
Lamborghini-themed massage chairs, cars with foldable legs, and Roomba-like lawn mowers are just a few of the bizarre products seen thus far at the world’s largest tech show.
Things haven’t quite escalated to the degree it hit last year, where a pole-dancing robot performed at a nearby gentleman’s club. But you never know – CES doesn’t end until Friday.
