The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world's biggest tech and gadget show and gadget show opened on Tuesday, with thousands of technology enthusiasts heading to Las Vegas to get a peek at the latest innovations.

Drawing a big crowd was LG's rollable television that rolls itself away into a sleek piece of furniture when it's not being used. LG spokesman said the versatile television, which can be placed against a window or in the middle of a room, would begin shipping in the second half of 2019.

Robots, as always, were everywhere at CES. From a robot you can play ping-poing with to a robot personal assistant. Chinese company VxFly, which also makes an underwater robot, launched its electric propelled kickboard, designed to help children learn to swim. CES runs until Friday.
