Every year, the Consumer Electronics Show is bursting full of color. It is always a visual delight, an attack on your senses. It takes an image gallery to convey what it’s like to those who didn’t make it to the show. Here are the memorable images from CES 2013. Pictured above is Gary Shapiro, chief executive of the Consumer Electronics Association. He started out the show, saying it had more than 3,300 exhibitors across 1.9 million square feet of space. We’ll find out soon exactly how many attended, but the show was busier than ever. We wouldn’t be surprised if it beat last year’s record of 156,000 attendees.
