LAS VEGAS – No doubt about it, the Consumer Electronics Show is massive. This year’s big tech show features more than 3,500 exhibitors and is expected to attract more than 160,000 industry professionals. It’s all wonderfully exhausting.
For all the people who are in Sin City this week, basking in the glory of the tech mecca that is CES, many others simply couldn’t budget the cost or the time.
Not to worry. Entrepreneur is here, soaking in all the shiny new gadgets and weird tech that we can -- and sharing it with you. For those of you who aren’t here in the desert, we offer you a quick insider’s look into all the action.
The show kicked off Monday with press day and officially on Tuesday for the masses.
On Tuesday morning, attendees were already flooding in.

Drones have a big presence at CES this year. We encountered this guy in a space suit operating a drone. Because why not, right?
And then Parrot’s mini drones put on a show. Fun.
All the big tech companies are showing off their new lines of TVs. Curved displays are pretty big this year. Does your TV have that edge?
Then there’s LG’s series of OLED 4K TVs. They really are as breathtaking as you’ve heard they are.

Even this year, the “booth babe” is a staple for many exhibitors at CES. Here’s a more modest, retro take on the go-to attention getter.
Fashion, meet tech. The dress on the left changes color depending on the temperature. The one on the right lights up when music is played. Practical? Meh. But it’s something worth checking out.
As you might imagine, the tech press is all over the place. Here, our friends at Engadget are conducting one of many interviews.
Or even better still.
