LAS VEGAS — Every year, while the Consumer Electronics Show displays the newest gadgets for home theaters, computing and cameras, the Adult Entertainment Expo shows off gadgets of another kind. This year, like many others, the AEE featured some consumer electronics systems that could soon find themselves across the street at CES in the coming years, albeit in a more safe-for-work form.
A company that distributes movies directly on USB thumb drives, a remote-controlled device that lets users interact physically over the distance of the Internet, and an augmented reality program that puts users in the middle of the action all premiered at AEE, and have significant applications for gaming and home entertainment.
"A lot of us are real big tech geeks," said Liam Colins, the director of special programs for Pink Visual, an adult video distribution and cloud computing company. “We love our toys, in the non-adult sense, too."
