In the last five years the CES has changed: the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, once a showcase of products and services closely related to technology, has expanded to include innovations from different sectors, such as the automotive and food industries. This change takes into account the fact that many other aspects of our lives are now intertwined with technology, which is no longer confined to computers, smartphones or household appliances.
Despite this extension of the original purpose of the event and the participation of more external brands to what is normally considered the technology sector, CES continues to be a fair where there is plenty of space for gadgets, products and inventions at least unusual and weird. This 2020 edition is no exception. Along with traditional smartphones and gadgets, we have seen some ads – which we collect in this very short anthology – that paint a vision of a future as smart and connected as unequivocally bizarre.
