    A few quick CES photos…

    Ciara O'Brien

    So yesterday was the first full day of the show. By 4pm, I was shattered, and it wasn’t over yet.

    This place is huge. I’ve already got lost in the North Hall twice. And I have a map – well, several. Plus an app on my iPhone. I still haven’t a clue where I am half the time.

    The rule about the Strip applies to the convention centre – the Father Dougal rule of small versus far away gets chucked out the window here. Large does not necessarily equal close by, and you can walk for a good half hour without feeling like you’re making any progress towards that seemingly near hotel. The convention centre halls appear to get larger the more you try to find the exit.

    So on to the photos.

    This is LG’s Smart TV Upgrader, a set top box that uses HDMI to give you all the Smart TV elements it’s planning for its new TVs:

    One of the more unusual exhibits. It’s a promo for a website called Gamechurch.com. Games reviews, by Christian reviewers. They even gave out Jesus temporary tattoos.

    Sony’s booth contains this: the car from the Green Hornet. The company also had Seth Rogan and Jay Chou on stage at its press conference when it was talking up its 3D content.

    Ultimate bling.
