Meanwhile, Daimler will show off a concept car, and there should be plenty of drones as well  as self-driving on display. Buckle up.

Bringing sexy back

For sex tech, Sin City is the perfect place for an exhibition. At least you’d think so. And after a very public debacle last year (wherein it awarded, revoked, and then reinstated an “honoree designation” for a sex tech company), it seems CES has begrudgingly embraced the pleasure industry.

We’ll keep an ear to the ground for any complaints about the Consumer Technology Association’s guidelines for sex tech booths. They seem pretty stringent, and already there have already been a few disgruntled creators.

Oh gee, 5G

Forgive me for putting 5G last, but after a multitude of false starts, it seems appropriate to temper expectations. Of course, ultra-fast internet sounds great, and with it, we could see AR and VR experiences actually take off. Maybe.

Regardless, we’ll see a number of companies launch 5G-enabled devices, like Dell’s new laptops. The bigger question, though, is what we’ll be able to do with them. Over the next week, we hope to show you.
