At CES (Consumer Electronic Show) 2017, Over 165,000 attendees from 150 different countries came to the 50th year showcase which was held from January 5-8 in Las Vegas, Nevada in the US.
CES showcased more than 3,800 exhibiting companies which included manufacturers, developers, and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems, and more.
There were impressive technological innovations such as BEON. It is the world's first removable 360-degree panoramic camera that is housed in a wristwatch. The camera can be used for live streaming through its 5-megapixel HD camera. The watch comes with a stand by battery of up to four days and is capable of continuous recording for about two hours. Lego Robots were also displayed at CES. According to Aishwarya Krishnan, "Lego has had robots set for a long time. However, the robotic kits were extremely challenging to build and also required some basic coding skills. Lego has finally upped its game in the robot toys sections and come up with Lego Boost. Lego Boost helps the laziest of people to build robots with the help of a companion app! This app can be used to control the robot which removes the coding part of the robotic toys."
