First thing Monday morning, the crowds were already piling up outside Central Hall, eager to see the goods. And for the record, Windows Vista was a "wow": it's one of our Best of CES finalists.

At the Intel booth, visitors can dance in front of a green screen to create their own music videos. Can a conga line be far behind?

Homesick New Yorkers can grab a rail at this mock subway at the Motorola booth. Fortunately not included: the mysterious odor that swept Manhattan and New Jersey Monday.

Also at the Motorola booth, Razr haters can walk on the phone embedded in the floor. If only we could dance on the keypad to dial out.

Many smart consumers have put their DVD-player purchases on hold, unwilling to choose sides in the Blu-ray/HD-DVD format war. So, LG's announcement of a player that works with both is attracting a lot of attention at CES.

Jumbo HDTVs are de rigueur at CES, and this year's twist is giant LCDs. This is LG's 100-inch, 1080p HDTV.

TVs used to be blocky, heavy boxes that squatted in your living room, gathering dust. Today's flat-screen TVs give you more positioning options, as Panasonic demonstrates at its booth, with spinning plasma TVs.

Superior TVs, speakers, and home video equipment have turned living rooms into home theaters. Thus there's a movie theater at Panasonic's booth--presumably without the sticky floors and the kids kicking your seat.

We're in the desert, not at the beach, but Panasonic imported sand and models so that booth visitors can test the company's cameras on live subjects.

With Kodak's latest frames, you can display your online Kodak slideshows on the frame, wirelessly, and for free. It plays video, too.

Fans of Counter-Strike, Halo, and Quake can get their game on in this tent sponsored by Intel. However, when we came calling, the name of the game seemed to be Grand Theft Gaming--the tent was temporarily closed due to theft.

We're not sure what it has to do with tech, but the Girls Gone Wild franchise had a trailer and volleyball setup in the CES parking lot. The "girls" aren't great players, but we suspect the guys were there for the hot pants anyway.
