Great show this year!  Lots of energy: A couple of million square feet of exhibit space — more than 3200 companies showing their goods — and 156,000 attendees.

We’re back to long cab lines, sore feet, and the likely epicenter of the Flu Pandemic of 2013.  I predict it will all be traced back to the 3D glasses everybody shared out of the bucket on the way past the LG show wall.

This year’s CES show was marked by very strong attendance, an upbeat tone, and significantly better ‘feel’ than the past couple of years. Cab lines, booth glitz, and general over-the-topulence all came back to Vegas after a long absence. Several of the booths were astonishingly large and expensive. At Microsoft, an entire segment was devoted to the new Kinect controller for the Xbox 360. I paced off the Samsung booth, starting at cell phones and ending at Internet-connected washing machines.

You didn’t have to look very hard to see that the biggest thing at CES this year was continued buzz about 3D TV. From my standpoint, it seems the equipment manufacturers are ahead of the rest of the ecosystem to make this a mainstream reality. For one, there is very little 3D content and little commitment to produce more. I heard a statistic that I can’t prove, but sounds about right: there is a total of 120 hours of 3D television programming in the world.
