CES 2017 Day 1

Drone demo at PowerVision booth CES Las Vegas 2017

The first day of CES 2017 was a bit of a trial run. It's a massive event taking over most of the strip in Vegas. It did feel great to be around so many people in a vibrant city environment. 175,000 are projected to attend the conference this year! Yesterday, I made it to a number of booths and plan to see much more today. 

Pictured above is a portion of the PowerVision booth. Powervision is based out of San Mateo, CA and had impressive demo cages with their latest drones flying around. Their drones were quiet, level in flight and equipped with high-powered cameras.

In the Tech East, South Hallway portion of CES there were many drones. I tried out three different virtual reality headsets from: Smart Theater, Merge Virtual Reality and Freefly VR. Freefly VR being the most immersive video game experience, Merge the most fun & interactive games.

TiVo doesn't have a booth at CES. Just a locked meeting room. It is hard to tell who is still with the company after their recent merger with Rovi.

I enjoyed seeing the new Garmin wearables. They have classic men's watches which also track your fitness stats, but don't look like smart watches. The Garmin golf watches are my favorite of their products.

All of that in only an hour and a half of attending yesterday!
