The Party's Over - #CESPrinters dominated by the 3D variety!
Starting a week ago, I began tracking Consumer Electronics Show activities online, after having decided to sit out this year's Las Vegas spectacular. And while not on my regular "beat", I've followed the development of the 3D Printing field for over a decade, so it's interesting to see the category gain so much attention, and now swamping, at least from a "Google search" perspective, traditional printers and printing.
My final measure of this via a popularity index derived by simply searching Google for "CES Printer", comes up with a first page of 100% 3D-printer-related hits. (See left.)
