Overwhelmed and not enough time are the first impressions the Geeks have about CES 2006. CES takes up all of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) as well as the Sands Exposition Center and several suites have been rented at various hotels for even more product demos. We’ll be lucky to see 5% of the show!
We did attend several sessions including a “look into the future”session and a very informative session featuring a panel including Dlink, Zigbee, Insteon, Homeplug and HomePNA.
As far as exhibits, we were impressed with the clarity and brightness of the OLEDs soon to be offered by Samsung SDI and were quite impressed with a closer look at the Slingbox and excited by the answers to our concerns with the product. Moving on to home automation (my favorite consumer electronics), HAI had some impressive newly or released products and about to be released products while Smarthome and friends were showing of the growth of manufacturers and products using Insteon.
We will be posting many more articles tomorrow morning and throughout the day, but for now… the Geeks must rest.
