Thousands of technology fanatics are gathering in Las Vegas this week for the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) festivities.

Last year, Samsung and LG both showcased refrigerators at CES that gave you the ability to see what was inside.

Announcements have already been trickling out ahead of the official opening Tuesday.

CES is expected to draw more than 170,000 people, as some 4,000 exhibitors showcase their wares over the equivalent of almost 50 football fields, or more than 11 NY city blocks. However, Kohler says it will also offer connected bathroom products featuring Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit technologies in the future - an implicit nod to the fact that the competition in the voice technology and smart home market is still wide open. That sums up in a nutshell why I am accompanying our Beasley Media Group team to CES 2018. These advances in technology could revolutionize the gadgets we use and the ways in which we use them, though numerous things we'll see at CES 2018 will probably be a way's off from public release.

And while there have been some wild IoT ideas at CES grabbing a few headlines in past years - Bluetooth forks, Bluetooth toothbrushes, and more - it's possible that the smart home era is coming into its own as a true smart home in total.

The sports zone may bring together tendencies which have emerged in CES over the decades: wearables, augmented reality, detectors, and apps for measuring physical activity.

Home-entertainment equipment is expected to be among the technologies overhauled at CES this year, with LG promising to unveil the largest OLED television to feature an 8K resolution - more than double the sharpness of top televisions now on sale.

And yes: There will be more TVs this year, armed with all kinds of tricks.

"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader". Many sets will come with voice controls. But CES is the place for less-known and lower-cost Android phones, along with tablets, laptops and other personal computers, not to mention storage drives and other accessories. There will even be a robot that folds your laundry-though at a snail's pace of one shirt every two minutes.

Byton, an electric vehicle startup from China, will also be at the show. Of course, many of these same companies will build Amazon's Alexa assistant into some of the same products.

Meanwhile, TVs are getting more and more sophisticated, as companies like LG and Sony vie for TV model supremacy.
