CES Convention Showcases Latest in Gadgets and Technology

The 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held this weekend at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas Hilton and The Venetian. The event had thousands of new and unusual products on display in 15 different categories. Many of them are expected to hit the market within the next several months. As usual, the show was about fun, fashion, gadgets and innovation. Not open to the public, the event is geared toward techies and buyers.

The hottest topic seemed to be 3D technology, which was showcased in just about everything from cameras to flatscreen computer monitors to TVs to new-fangled glasses. Also popular in the tech showcase were several different tablet computers, e-book readers, gaming systems and new 4G Smartphones (with apps to boot).

Consumers appear to be looking for things that are greener, faster and can be taken wherever they go without any fuss. According to Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) economist and research director Shawn Dubravac, the average household has 24 technology products. If the CES convention was a sign of things to come, look for that number to increase over the next year.
