General Electric plans to unveil a new ceiling light that can be controlled by means of Google Assistant voice commands while also serving as a bridge to this app; in other words, homeowners can issue commands to the lamps hanging above their heads for the goal of looking up information, scheduling tasks, streaming music, making appointments, getting news, ordering goods and services, controlling other smart home devices, and making voice calls.

Numerous products will be quickly forgotten - like last year's wi-fi connected trash can with voice controls.

While most booths saw their foot traffic disappear, one area was still drawing a crowd.
