This week, DISCOVER is blogging from fabulous Las Vegas -- today is the official opening of the annual Consumer Electronics Show. 130,000 consumer technology makers, buyers, and watchers have come from 140 countries to show off their latest gadgets. Previous years have seen the debut of technologies that eventually became so ingrained into our lives that it's hard to remember life without them, such as the VCR (1970), the camcorder (1981), the compact disc player (1981), the DVD (1996) and HDTV (1998). Throughout the show, we'll be telling you about the products, events and trends we think are the most important, coolest, or just plain weirdest.
