On 11th Jan, 2021, the news published that the Under typical conditions this would have been perhaps the busiest week in the tech schedule. A huge number of new items would have been uncovered; CEOs and superstars would have competed for consideration; and robots would have likely broke down in front of an audience.

There will at present be bunches of new contraptions.
