CES 2019: Google brings a Disney-like ride to tech show

The CES 2019 gadget show opened its doors on Tuesday, with tech companies from giants to tiny startups showing off their latest products and services.  Google has transformed CES into a Disney-like theme park — complete with singing animatronic macarons — to showcase new features of its voice-enabled digital assistant. This includes an "interpreter mode" that enables some of Google's smart home devices to work as a translator. It's being piloted at a hotel concierge desk near the Las Vegas tech conference and rolls out to consumer devices in several weeks.
