CES 2013

For several years now I have had a pass to the exhibition halls at the Consumer Electronics Show. This is the largest show of it’s type in the world and a total geekfest. Major companies use this event to launch new innovations and start-ups use it to get their foot in the door. It is in Las Vegas, so I’ve never managed to get there… until this year. All I can say is WOW. It was HUGE. The stats said there were over 3,200 vendors and 150,000 attendees there. I believe it. We stayed on the floor all day Thursday and 2 hours on Friday and we didn’t even touch on what was there. We did manage to see all of the 3D vendors, had a good talk with the Afinia guys, had a couple of very interesting random encounters with people and inventors (including someone Steve knew from Cleveland!). The entire Las Vegas Convention Center was filled, with overflow exhibitions at the Venetian ballrooms and the Las Vegas Hilton.

One of the best parts was walking through the start up area and seeing all of the new ideas with big hopes. It was fun talking to those people. I’d like to go back next year for all four days… if I can manage to detox every night somehow lol. As always, Las Vegas makes me twitch. The bright lights, miles of new technology, and wall-to-wall people made my ADD self crash into my introverted self to the point where I was worried the implosion would collapse into a black hole and take the universe with it! I’d sure hate to be responsible for that!
