LAS VEGAS — Screw the electric toothbrushes and the smart-wearable-AR iPhone cases. We only care about robots now.
Well, also dinosaurs and lasers, but at least one of those is definitely not at CES this year.
Last night’s big event at CES was the Pepcom Digital Experience. For some reason, this gadget tradeshow-within-a-tradeshow had a Wizard of Oz theme. We got to make friends with a wicked witch; it was great. There were lots of little people dressed as Munchkins and Dorothies in truly half-assed Dorothy costumes. Whatever.
The only important parts were the robots. There were four robotics companies at Pepcom this year if you don’t count Roomba clones. We don’t.
No more talking! ROBOTS NOW!
