The Consumer Electronics Show is a popular event around the globe because world's most known brands and companies will come together to showcase their products.

But it doesn't have to be that way, as demonstrated by Brilliant Control, a 2018 CES Innovation Award victor.

Voice controlled gadgets are everywhere!

LG's tech uses assistants both from Google and Amazon, and Panasonic is similarly hedging its bets, plugging into both infrastructures, depending on device and geography. The Google Assistant recently pushed to LG's Smart Speakers. Google Assistant attracts them with its expertise in answering complex questions, its ability to adapt to different settings and broader language support.

Google and Amazon are dominating the smart speaker market.

Not much information has been shared by LG yet. Wired reports you can barely turn around without seeing a "Hey Google" billboard reminding you of the power of the company's voice-activated bot. "Google Assistant is everywhere in Vegas because Google wants desperately for Assistant to be everywhere in your gadgets".

The most daunting part, however, is knowing where to begin - like knowing what to search. You can even reserve parking space through SpotHero. We like free stuff. Brilliant is a sleek, futuristic wall panel that doubles as a smart light switch and a smart home hub.

Google's outdoor booth was one of the busiest areas of CES 2018. There were screens galore - plus a real working 5G network connection for super fast data transfer speeds and less delay. You can simply say "How do I get there?" and the device will understand what you are talking about.

"We'll have to see how that works out", Google's Scott Huffman, a Google VP, said.

The Lenovo Smart Display will be available starting this summer, in two sizes. Of course, there's always the option to just hide it completely.

With Smart Display, you will be able to explore more of Google services like YouTube to watch videos and Google Duo to make video calls through the display using your Gmail account.

Most retailers will take one look at integrating into a voice assistant and immediately (and quite rightly) decide that an app or skill just isn't for them. Another neat feature is the addition of a physical webcam shutter. "The risk with adding a display is that you're making it a little close to being a computer", he said. "The still by far the best in terms of top-tier talent, but China is closing the gap fast", said Lu Qi, Baidu's group president and chief operating officer.
