CES 2018: The smarter, sharper tech coming your way

CES 2018: The smarter, sharper tech coming your way

The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) has kicked off in Las Vegas for five days of all-you-can-eat tech and gadgetry. The Consumer Technology Association is right there with you.

Artificially intelligence voice assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are expected to appear in more technologies at CES this year, like Schlage's Sense Smart Deadbolt to allow users to unlock doors on command. The technology show is covering 2.7 million square feet in Las Vegas and is scheduled to run until Friday. Only industry professionals and news media can attend the event, which is the largest convention yearly in Las Vegas. A central theme of this year's show is "Smart Cities", and automakers and other companies have used elaborate virtual reality displays of tree-lined streets with smooth flowing traffic to promote technology and investments aimed at relieving urban congestion.

The auto industry will show off its latest trucks, SUVs, minivans, and luxury sedans at next month's auto show in Detroit.

Rain + Cold = Ice is the equation for this weekend
We have a multi-faceted, highly impactful 24 hours of weather ahead with flooding rains followed by a flash freeze. Wind chill factors below zero will impact northeast Oklahoma through at least mid morning Friday .

About a dozen self-driving vehicles from automakers like Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan will be at this year's show.

Byton, an electric vehicle startup from China, will also be at the show.

FROM folding smartphones and robotic cat doors to televisions larger, sharper, and smarter than those now in our homes, revolutionary technology is expected to emerge from the world's largest technology show this week. Intel had a tongue-in-cheek announcement for a product called "Blackout". About that heavy rainfall: Record-breaking rain on Tuesday had already caused a bit of chaos at CES, flooding a number of booths, including one belonging to Google. Last year's IFA saw an influx of exciting smart home products; think smart wireless speakers that connect you to your home network, and automated fridges that bring you beer. The firsthigh-definition TVs were introduced two years later, courtesy of Sony, Thomson, Phillips, Panasonic and Zenith, while 2001 saw Bill Gates team up with Dwayne "The Rock' Johnson to launch Microsoft's first Xbox".
