A Big CES 2016 Splash
Buckle up! CES 2016 kicks off this week in Las Vegas, so prepare for gadget overload from car tech to wireless everything, IoT everywhere and flocks of drones buzzing high above the 3,631 companies exhibiting this year at the world’s largest gadget fest.
Virtual reality pioneer Oculus Rift along with a big Internet of Things push by Intel represent two major themes we’ll be hearing a lot about this week. Carmakers are also putting the pedal to the metal by demonstrating everything from autonomous vehicles to new ways to turn the back seat of your car into an Internet-enabled entertainment center.
Then there is new TV tech from LG, Samsung and Sony, which will be showing off gigantic eye-popping 4-K HDTVs with new smart TV technology, including one called high dynamic range. And there is more, including Windows 10-enabled PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s along with CES’ weird and wonderful head-scratcher gadgets such as a breathalyzer to detect fat.
Here is what's hot this year at CES.
