Consumer electronics are the most heavily exchanged gifts during the holiday season. Many of us anticipate receiving gifts of the latest innovations in the categories of audio/visual, virtual reality and gaming devices. However, for people who are true technophiles the real glimpse into the latest innovations in these categories comes in the form of the most heavily anticipated electronics display of all – the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018. This show gives consumers a sneak peek into the future with technologies that at times seem almost otherworldly. This is why Ratpac Dimmers is so excited to be a part of an industry that progresses through such leaps and bounds. Many of the technologies present at these shows complement devices like our wireless dimmers and wireless DMX systems. CES 2018 runs from January 9 through 12 and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
