The world's largest consumer technology show has kicked off in Las Vegas, with 120,000 attendees converging on the city to see the latest in home entertainment systems, smart cars and industry gurus outlining their plans for the future.
The show, organised by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), is the largest in North America and this year is based around five themes: media servers, portable entertainment, hybrid white goods, innovative gaming and telematics.
"You can expect an even more dynamic CES for 2005," said CEA vice president of events and conferences Karen Chupka.
"Because the show provides the industry's best value, exhibitors and attendees can get much of their business for the year done in just four days, as well as interact with the 'who's who' of the global technology industry."
Among the keynote speakers Bill Gates, HP's Carly Fiorina and Intel's Craig Barrett (in one of his last public engagements before retirement) will be laying out their visions of the future.
