USA Today reports the power went out for almost two hours Wednesday in two of the main halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center during the Consumer Electronics Show.

CES is historically home to technology advancements and prototypes from the likes of Google, Samsung and Silicon Valley start ups, however this year commercial road transport solutions aim to steal the show.

Innovative modes of transport are also expected to play a big role in the show this year, from an electric auto created to seat just one person, the Solo from Canadian firm Electra Meccanica, to the world's smallest underwater scooter, the Sublue WhiteShark Mix.

The power outage hit shortly after 11am on the second day of CES. It was raining in Las Vegas on Monday and Tuesday - rare for a desert city.

General Electric plans to unveil a new ceiling light that can be controlled by means of Google Assistant voice commands while also serving as a bridge to this app; in other words, homeowners can issue commands to the lamps hanging above their heads for the objective of looking up information, scheduling tasks, streaming music, making appointments, getting news, ordering goods and services, controlling other smart home devices, and making voice calls.

LG's 65in rollable OLED makes every other TV look boring
One of the features LG have been able to implement using the rollable technology is having the TV operate in different formats. In fact, LG's largest existing OLED display is 77-inches with a heavy price tag of $20,000, and that's only in 4K.


But in addition to technology that might end up in your home, the show is also expected to host downright unusual devices, from a Harry Potter-style automated chess board to a one-person electric auto.

"OLED is clearly a next-generation technology leader".

Thousands were evacuated from the CES tech show in Las Vegas.

The show will also feature a range of Internet-connected home devices that can be controlled from smartphones.

Intel and Nvidia will display the brains of these cars - computer processors - and other high-tech items include drones and artificial intelligence products. The firsthigh-definition TVs were introduced two years later, courtesy of Sony, Thomson, Phillips, Panasonic and Zenith, while 2001 saw Bill Gates team up with Dwayne "The Rock' Johnson to launch Microsoft's first Xbox".
