In between the giant LCDs and tiny camcorders, the other wonderful thing about CES is the chance to witness some bonkers-but-cool technology. I managed to sneak in while the stands were being set up this afternoon and witnessed:

* A robot that will wash your floors and another that will perform a sexy dance (if only they could be combined, I hear you say)* A diving mask with underwater camera attached (relive that shark attack in glorious detail)* An 'ultra-accurate' DIY breathalyser (a journalistic must)* An iPod case with miniature speakers embedded in them (share even more of your tinny sounding music with grateful commuters)* A device that will let deaf people 'see' radio. (spoken word only, I assume)And the events aren't all press conferences either - later on, we'll be seeing Yoko Ono launch the John Lennon Educational Bus, Kevin Costner and his band endorse wireless technology and Mary J Blige sing her heart out on behalf of Monster cables.

We'll hopefully be keeping you up to date with video footage of these momentous events and more esoteric gadgets as well as all the breaking news when the show finaly flings open its doors proper tomorrow...
