LAS VEGAS -- CES 2023 opened to the public on Thursday with throngs of people browsing new technology ranging from self-driving farm equipment to the latest electric vehicle concept cars against the backdrop of a slumping tech sector.

But while attendance is below pre-pandemic levels and despite a rare drizzle falling on the Las Vegas Strip, the buzz is back.
