In January every year, there is a trade fair that takes place in Las Vegas where manufacturers from across the world display their latest consumer technology products.
The exhibition is called the Consumer Electronic Show, or CES.
"Good Morning and welcome to CES 2018, the largest tech event, actually the largest business event in the world. This weekend, Las Vegas is preparing to be Whoa! Over the next four days, tens of thousands of the brightest and most innovative minds will gather to connect and do business in order to advance the tech industry," Gary Shapiro of Consumer Technology Association said.
This year, approximately 4,000 companies took part in the event.
Manufacturers of cameras, virtual reality (VR) games, robot and automotive tech, also showcased their new technologies.
"Galaxy experience on CES 2018 is introduced with a whole bunch of different VR experiences. Interactive experiences so you can feel the products in real life from an alpine skiing experience where we are having a competition running. Or someone can walk home with a gear that fits like a pro," Paul Boris of Vuzix Corporation said.
Health-related products were displayed such as monitoring and wearable diagnostic devices, and with these new inventions, the healthcare industry is embracing new technologies to enhance the patient experience.
