Taiwanese technology heavyweights including Lite-On Technology, motherboard vendor Gigabyte and semiconductor company ELAN Microelectronics Corp. are demonstrating new products at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a week-long showcase of gadgets in Las Vegas that opened Tuesday.
Among the innovations at this year's get-together, run by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), are an augmented strip club complete with virtual pole dancers and a "personal massager" you can operate from your smart watch.
Haddock claims they have been cagey on the reasons why, claiming they have cited "immorality" and "obscenity" and that "anything not in keeping with CTA's image will be disqualified". The sex toyLora DiCarlo submitted sounds like a ideal fit for the show.
A month later, Lora DiCarlo was "unexpectedly informed" that CTA was rescinding the award-as well as the firm's invitation to CES 2019.

However, the organisers later backtracked and mentioned the product didn't fit in any category, be it robotics or drones.

Furthermore, the presence of women at the tradeshow is relatively less, be it female-focussed products or female presenters.
