  • Electric car at CES tech show 2018

Technology brands including Intel and IBM have been quick to jump into the social conversation with a tongue-in-cheek brand approach after a blackout struck the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Rest assured, Nevada Power got things up and running.

The power at the Las Vegas Convention Center was restored around 1:20 pm with help from NV Power.

Attendees of a major technology show were dealing with a basic technological failure as the power went off at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES).

Many attendees admitted immediately that when the lights went off with a small pop, their first thought was terrorism, while others discussed the irony of a high-tech exposition knocked low by fundamental electrical technology.

Despite being a convention dedicated to incredible (and sometimes very bizarre) upcoming technology, the Consumer Electronics Show is subject to power loss like anything else. Power was fully restored at 2:10 p.m., as was shared by the organizers of CES 2018.

"A preliminary assessment indicates that condensation from heavy rainfall caused a flashover on one of the facility's transformers", the statement read in part.

Attendees took to Twitter to share images and poke fun at the eerily darkened convention space.

Thousands of people including media and analysts filed into the crowded halls just before 11:30 am, as security said they are investigating the matter.

Meanwhile, Canon capitalized on the opportunity to demonstrate their camera's low-light shooting capability.

Carmakers, tech companies and other service providers have partnered on self-driving projects over past two years, due to the difficulty and high cost of developing such technology alone. A few wise-guys conjectured that it happened because someone said, "Alexa, turn off the lights".
