Power outage at CES lasts more than one hour

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.

The Consumer Electronics Show lost its electrics shortly after 6am AEDT time, during the show's busiest hours, shutting down parts of the Las Vegas Convention Centre, including Central Hall where the show's biggest exhibits are located.

But in addition to technology that might end up in your home, the show is also expected to host downright unusual devices, from a Harry Potter-style automated chess board to a one-person electric auto. Digital money remains an exciting frontier, and connected and smart auto technologies continue to evolve as information technologies - yes, including AI and biometrics - continue to converge with the automotive sector.

"In our ongoing and relentless pursuit to own and define the modern pizza experience for our customers, we are focused on technology-based solutions that enable our team members and drivers to deliver even better customer experiences", said Artie Starrs, President, Pizza Hut, US.


CES is now in its 51st year. We didn't have smart cities. Microsoft pulled out of having a booth at CES several years ago. As the largest hands-on event of its kind, CES features technology from a wide array of industries.

TV maker LG's OLED Canyon display demo, with 246 OLED panels and more than 30 high-definition generators, took almost an hour to get back in full operation.

"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader". Both large and smaller ones rely on the annual trade show to ink deals that will translate to cash months in the future; the blackout disrupted some of the product demos, panels and meetings key to those deals.
