CES 2018: Tech's biggest show disrupted by blackout

The robots of CES are a joke
"We are working hard to restore this temporary power outage at the LVCC [Las Vegas Convention Center]".
Even after the power was restored, companies had to go through the hassle of resetting devices on display - those connected wirelessly with each other, in particular.
While attendees were initially told to wait 15 minutes for lights to turn back on, thousands of guests were evacuated from the hall when the electricity failed to return.
In a statement, CES organiser, the Consumer Technology Association, blamed the outage on recent heavy rainfall which caused condensation on the venue's roof to short circuit one of the facility's transformers.
Large swaths of the sprawling Las Vegas convention centre lost power at about 11:15am local time, including exhibitor booths and rooms used by journalists covering the event, reportsThe Guardian.
The convention center's Central Hall which features massive booths for tech giants Sony, Samsung, Intel, and LG, were also affected.
Exhibitors have not yet put forward any complaints concerning damages caused by the power outage, nor has the show organizer officially mentioned a plan regarding the mishap.
Some companies and attendees had a sense of humor about the situation, and took to Twitter using the hashtag #CESBlackout to compete for funniest blackout tweet. Intel tweeted a photo of the darkened convention center with the caption, "Introducing Blackout: The biggest thing to hit CES 2018 since 5G".
