What show?

I didn't see more than a robot and a car. Well, some booths. Either that was a boring show, or you made it look boring.

You're right, Tim. I attended a Microsoft user conference that featured tons of useful technology. They also had a surface computer displayed. The surface computer -- with little practical value -- got all the attention.

These are some pretty neat examples of automation.  For the trade show, a person might walk right by a booth that has a bunch of six axis robots sitting static, but if you have one of those robots playing air hockey, you will have a line around the block waiting to see your product.

Nice slide show, Dylan. What a wild bunch of examples of automation. Silly me, I thought automation was all about sensors, servo motors, and Ethernet. I guess the final products show better than the wires and grease inside.
