Photos: Day 1 @ CES 2011

Thursday was the official opening day of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Here are just some of the pics we’ve been sending out to followers of the Consumerist Twitter feed.

The answer to all the world’s problems — The electric bidet:

This Holga camera is both cool (it lets you take expose only half the frame and then expose the other half) and adorable:

These guys are doing their best to act like they care about a radar detector video:

Meet Windoro, the window-washing robot. But before you get too friendly, you should know he costs around $400:

I created beautiful art on RCA’s interactive TV prototype:

I had intended on writing something about these sandals. But then the guy at the booth freaked out because I took a photo:

    Can you program the electric bidet to wipe your ass through an iPhone app?

    I wonder why sandals would need cables.

    And yet, still no Mr. Fusion Home Energy Converter.

    *crosses fingers*

  4. Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

    Why is there a stripper dressed like a cop at that booth?

    • Mr. Fix-It says: "Canadian Bacon is best bacon!" says:

      Evidently you are not familiar with the phenomena known as ‘Booth Babes’. They appear at every convention, whether their appearance is justified or not. They’re basically just walking, breathing advertising.

      • Boo LaRue says:

        Are the suckers, er, male customers, that much more likely to buy a product because a skimpily dressed female is near said product? Sad, if true.

        • NOS says:

          Not more likely to buy… But guys are more likely to notice the booth. Which in turn might cause said “boob viewer” to notice a product.

        • Red Cat Linux says:

          That’s exactly what they are there for. Some companies still don’t think it matters that it will turn off female buyers and consumers.

    • Me - now with more humidity says:

      Wait… there’s a booth, too? ;-)

      She is for the CEO of the company. He writes off his Happy Ending as advertising expenses.
