LAS VEGAS -- CES 2017 -- CES is a world unto itself, and while the industry moans every year that it's no longer worth the hype, the annual convention in Las Vegas brings in close to 200,000 visitors for demos, meetings and a rare kind of gaudy, nerd-infused nightlife.

4D Virtual Reality
Samsung wins the virtual reality prize for a '4D' Gear VR demo that included not only VR headsets, but a rollercoaster ride on the wheel of death. Nobody threw up afterward so they must have had any VR latency issues nailed.

Wheel of cheese
A wheel of death sounds like something that has been outlawed by the Geneva Convention.

That Ericsson drone brings new meaning to cyberstalking.

Re: Times a changin?
I did get to try it. It was a canned racing game demo, and the content wasn't great, but the weight of the glasses and the ability of the hardware to make the real and virtual world come together was amazing. Incredible paltform to build on. 

Lots of smart home at CES this year. And lots of 5G.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
