The Consumer Electronics Show, better known as CES, gets underway this week in Las Vegas, and here's Fortune correspondent Chris Morris with a walk-up preview to the show.
Morris's focus is primarily on cars and games, where technology has upped the bar of ambition in autonomous vehicles and virtual reality game experiences. Apart from those areas, this high-profile, high powered, high tech event is trying to ensure its business and consumer participants safety despite heightened risks of attack. Morris writes:
“While we know of no credible threat against CES, we remain vigilant,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association, which hosts the show. “We are communicating with the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and local law enforcement officials as we enhance security measures on-site at CES 2016."
