In pictures: Sights from the CES 2016 show floor

Here's what it's like to be at the planet's biggest tech show

CES 2016

We've spent all week deep in the belly of the beast, unsure if we'd ever see light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm speaking, of course, about CES, and, alright, that's a bit over-dramatic, but if you've ever been to the biggest tech show on the planet, you know it can push you to the brink of insanity. There's just too much to see, so much to do, and never enough time. Throw in hundreds of thousands of likewise sleep-deprived human beings, blinding lights (that's before you even step out on the Strip), a few cocktails and more press-room box lunches than you'd like to admit, and you have a recipe for one of the most far-out experiences of your life.

And yet it's all exceedingly exhilarating. This is the first time we get to see and experience tech that will make waves all year long and beyond. We wanted to bring you a first-hand look at what it's like to be at CES 2016, so check out the images snapped by our editors below.
