The world’s leading tech fair, CES Asia has opened again this year in Shanghai. CCTV’s Mi Jiayi takes on a visit of what’s hot at the Consumer Electronics Show.

CES Asia 2016 is double the size of last year, and so each of the 350 exhibitors has to try as hard as it can to get as much attention as possible.

There are more big names this year: Huawei brought its latest mobile phones and smartwatches, working on its intelligent hardware empire; Alibaba took Tmall to the show, making e-commerce touchable for the viewers.

And of course, companies in virtual reality, 3-D printing, and most smart wearables you could imagine, are there too.

Drones are one of the biggest rising stars this year. Both inside the exhibition halls and outside everyone could see and hear the the drones buzzing overhead. Many have come there especially for the flying technology.

This year, there’s also a start-up park at the exhibition allowing more junior companies to share their products and ideas. The CES organizers say they learned a lot from last years’ experience.
