Our 4 Favorite Weirdly Cool Tech Gadgets From CES 2018

14 January 2018

USA Today reports the power went out for almost two hours Wednesday in two of the main halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the Consumer Electronics Show. Initially, some folks seemed on edge-especially given past events in Las Vegas-but so far it just seems that the trade show finally succeeded in overloading the Las Vegas power grid. Thousands of attendees were ushered out and security guards temporarily refused entry to parts of the convention center. While power within the South Hall was restored minutes later, it took two hours to fully restore power in the Central Hall, with conference organisers confirming on Twitter at 1.09pm that power was slowly being rolled out in the Central Hall. "We will continue to restrict access until full power has been restored".

Update 6:39pm CT, Jan. 10: The CES blackout was caused by "condensation from heavy rainfall" on a transformer at the Las Vegas Convention Center, convention authorities said in a statement Wednesday.
