Another year, another CES conference in Las Vegas. This year's show drew upwards of 150,000 people to check out the latest and greatest in gadgets for the home, office and auto. Here are a few choice shots from V3 staff.

Crowds have become one of CES's trademarks. This photo was taken during a relatively quiet period: you can still see the carpet. Samsung was particularly popular at the show. It did not hurt matters that the company's stand was roughly the size of a small village

The star of the keynote address was the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. The company hopes that the processor will revolutionise tablet gaming and then proceed to usher in a new class of high-powered tablet PCs.

Nearly ever major vendor had a 4K television set to exhibit. The ultra-HD screens offer a resolution with four times as many pixels as 1080p sets

The most impressive 4k screen was from Panasonic. The company was able to place their screen atop a Windows 8 PC, creating a 20in tablet which was surprisingly lightweight and perfect for creative professionals and designers.

Sharp one-upped its competitors by unveiling a breathtaking 80in 8k set. The company had to source in specially-shot footage just to showcase the full abilities of the set.

Other vendors were a bit more creative with their CES exhibits. Our colleagues at The Inquirer spotted a rather creative iPad holder. Not sure you would want to have your touchsreen tablet that close to the "splash zone."

Our favourite exhibit, however, was a dual-picture television from Konka. The screen displays two images simultaneously, and by looking through a pair of special filters, viewers can watch two different movies at once.
