CES 2015 Display wrap-up

For each of the past six years, I’ve spent the second week in January immersed in all things consumer electronics at the legendary CES trade show in Las Vegas. Each year there’s a theme or buzzword that seems to grip the show, resonating from the convention center through all the meeting rooms at hotels up and down the strip.
