January brings one of the most exciting weeks of the year for tech-heads everywhere, as Las Vegas plays host to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES 2016 is the premiere exhibition for the consumer electronics and appliance industries, a chance for both the Who’s Who of technology and small startups to show off their latest wares to retailers, distributors and tech journalists from around the world.

 

We’ll have a team in Vegas on Monday, and all week long they’ll be roaming the showroom floor to find the most interesting upcoming tech items that may someday end up on our shelves. Over the course of the week, we’ll be putting up tons of videos, photos and blog posts to give you the inside scoop on the coolest things at CES 2016. You can find all our videos at the Abt Electronics YouTube Page or right here at Abt’s CES 2016 Coverage page. And we’d love to hear what you want to see! Please comment on any of our YouTube videos with what you’d like us to try and cover, and we’ll do our best to get video of it. Plus, be sure to watch all of our videos so you can spot the Dancing Josh Hologram. Every video you find him in gives you a chance to win a $100 Abt Gift Card.
