Show floor at the first CES in 1967As the psychedelic swirls of Sgt.Pepper streamed from radio and hi-fi speakers in late June 1967, 15,000 manufacturers, distributors and retailers checked out 100 exhibits during the first Consumer Electronics Show CES at the Hilton and Americana now Sheraton hotels in New York City.And what happens in Vegas this week will definitely not stay in Vegas, considering the swarm of media covering the show and the thousands of new gadgets about to be unveiled.As part of the CES 50th anniversary commemoration, in my role as newly-minted historian for the Consumer Technology Association CTA, the industry and lobbying group who produce CES , I ve helped collect around three dozen historically significant gadgets for display, from 8-track, compact cassette and record players that Beatles fans played Sgt.So I had to make some editorial decisions about what historically significant products to include in the display, tempering that judgement with what historically significant products I could actually procure.
