CES is a ruthless brute. As the world’s largest technology convention ends today in Las Vegas, thousands of attendees have embarked on a final campaign to make the most of a busy week of product launches problematic power outages and too many sales pitches to count – and they are tired.
The cracks began to show Wednesday, technically only on the second day of the convention. Mixed between drone classes, domestic robots, and at least one promise of free beer (only until stocks ran out!), There were countless numbers of people all over the world just trying to catch a damn minute of sleep.
From sitting at booths, at times of presumed peace, to saying “pull it” and lay on the floor, it was clear that the biggest trend at CES was to sleep through the CES.
And then there were the recliners.
