Consumer Electronics Show Enters Final Day - 8 News NOW

Consumer Electronics Show Enters Final Day

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show ends Friday. Many attendees say the show was impressive in both its size and content.

Not even Mother Nature and her polar vortex could stop people from coming to Las Vegas for the annual technological trade show.

People packed the halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center to see the newest developments in technology. One of the most popular trends this year involved wearable gadgets such as smart watches, glasses and gloves.

Many attendees say high-tech cars fascinated them.

"I'm kind of an auto guy, so I like the cars that are coming up, especially the Chevrolet 4G platform that's available in some of the cars now," said attendee Jerry Savaglio.

"I think that solar car is very interesting," added attendee Patrick Melia.

One thing many people say they would change for next year's CES involves their own game plans. Many say the show is so massive, they doubt they will be able to see every booth by the time it wraps Friday afternoon.

CES features approximately 3,200 exhibitions, which is 200 more than last year.

More than 155,000 people attended CES this year. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says the show generated approximately $195 million for the Las Vegas economy.
