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.

Click on the photo below to start your tour of CES 2017.

 

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.

Times a changin?
@Mari Were you able to try the Qualcomm/ODG VR headset? What was the most notable difference between this year's CES and last year's?
