Power outage at CES lasts more than one hour

The rare blackout follows rains that had shuttered some events at the show, whose location in the Nevada desert usually offers visitors a respite from snow and frigid temperatures elsewhere in the country.

Now in its 51st year, parts of the show seem like a throwback to a different era when televisions were considered the cutting edge of tech innovation.

With the show's biggest exhibitors inside the Central Hall this is a multi-million dollar outage on many levels.

Royal pain: Queen reveals downside of her 65-year reign
The Queen recounted: "I remember one moment when I was going against the pile of the carpet and I couldn't move at all". The devout Christian faith of Queen Elizabeth II is a running theme on the new Netflix series " The Crown ".

The power went out on Wednesday at CES, the giant tech conference taking place in Las Vegas this week.

The CES global trade show that seeks to extol the wonders of our connected world just illustrated a big Achilles' heel: Without electricity, not much happens. Those who had been inside during the outage continued to trickle out more than 30 minutes after the lights went out - with one security guard telling NBC News that people were being asked to leave. They're moving on from smart speakers and will show up in everything from cars to microwaves.

Being able to order items, select music, get information, and more by speaking to digital assistants such as Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, and Microsoft's Cortana has been such a hit that pressure will be on for more ways to interact with machines using voice, the researchers predicted. Will your next shower head be an Alexa, Bixby or Google Assistant?

"Technology is reshaping the commercial vehicle industry, and we have to be sure Peterbilt is on the front line of those developments", said Kyle Quinn, general manager, Peterbilt Motors Company.

The UN estimates that 60 percent of the world's population will live in urban ares by 2030. Tech West is also home to Eureka Park, the startup community for new businesses and entrepreneurs at CES. Now firms are pushing hardware and software for professional sports. This year, as a result of AI, voice ports, and innovative detectors, robots are inching closer to getting used. One category to watch is mobile service robots, which can handle deliveries and other simple tasks.

Even with all the wacky stuff that inevitably shows up, a big pillar for CES is still TVs. But a lot of significant name automobile producers will have flashy events and displays this season. That will consist of matters like low-latency portable broadband in your auto.
