LAS VEGAS — CES 2016 wrapped up this weekend, breaking attendance records at the nearly 50-year old trade show that showcases the latest and greatest technologies and products that are connecting the world. More than 170,000 people, including 50,000 from outside the U.S., attended, and some 6,000 journalists descended on nearly 2.5 million square feet of exhibition space to cover the technology presented by 3,800 exhibitors.
IBT Media sent a team of videographers and editors to Las Vegas for the week. Here are some of the video highlights of their work, and of the IBT journalists with whom they collaborated:
International Business Times Technology Editor Michael Learmonth gave us the big-picture highlights of the Best of CES, including the rise of Chinese companies, big-screen TVs, the connected home, the proliferation of drones and a bunch of virtual reality headset rollouts. Watch his report here and make sure to stick around for the end, when he gets eaten by zombies.
We spoke to Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke about his announcement of the company’s first new film camera since 1982: a Super 8 motion picture camera that shoots on film and, when processed by Kodak, gives the customer a shareable video version too.
IBT Media Editorial Director for Tech Marc Perton got to demo the updated HTC Vive virtual reality headset with a new front-facing camera.
LG unveiled its ultra-thin G6 OLED Ultra HD TV, which sports a frame about the width of four stacked credit cards.
International Business Times European Tech Editor David Gilbert flew in from Ireland to take a close look at the rise of China’s budget smartphone maker Huawei, and gave us his first impressions of the company's new premium Mate 8, which it hopes can take on the iPhone 6S Plus and Galaxy Note 5.
Ed Cara, from our sister site Medical Daily, took us on a tour of the best medical and health wearables at CES, including some possible lifesavers and simply fun ones.
IBT’s Nick Deel and Salvador Rodriguez looked at how Lego is using its colorful building bricks and robots to teach students the power of coding.
The North American International Auto Show may be looming in the week ahead in Detroit, but there was plenty of automotive technology unveiled in Las Vegas.
Vincent Balestriere test-drove the new Chevrolet Bolt, billed as the first all-electric vehicle for the masses, priced around $30,000.
Faraday Future, the secretive electric car startup backed by a Chinese billionaire, unveiled a much-anticipated concept car that looks like the Batmobile, but the FFZero1 will never see a driveway. We were rolling on the announcement and we interviewed Faraday’s head of research and development and asked him to compare his company to his former employer, Tesla.
Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess kicked off his presentation highlighting the company’s electric car efforts with an apology to the American people for VW’s deceptive diesel emissions scandal.
I got to ride around the Vegas Strip in a self-driving car of the future, an Audi outfitted with Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) technology, with our sister publication Newsweek’s Grant Burningham. It allows your car to, among many other cool things, talk to the cars and stoplights around you, change lanes to avoid hazards, and warn of pedestrians about to cross the street.
And while we covered plenty of serious stuff at CES, we also looked at gadgets to pamper your pet and met electronic-game-playing spokesdog Princess Fiona.
All in all, it was quite an eventful week at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
