Each year, thousands of companies from all over the world gather in Las Vegas for CES, a tech industry trade show that’s been around since 1967.
CES isn’t where you should expect to find the newest gadgets you’ll be able to get your hands on in the coming year. Rather, it provides a broad view of where the world’s biggest companies in the technology, home appliances, and automotive sectors, among other industries, are investing their resources. It provides a peek at the world we might live in anywhere from between five and 25 years from now.
