3D Report From CES

Stocks in this article: SBUXNATHSNEPCNVDA

For all of Stanley Bing's columns on TheStreet.com, click here.

Eighty percent of the stuff on the massive succession of floors here has something to do with thumping sound. Chairs are here that thump while you play immersive video games. Enormous speaker towers that you can pop your teeny IPod onto. Fabulous vehicles tricked out with woofers bigger than a Great Dane's. Miniscule ear buds that fry your eustachian tubes.

My conceptual issue here is that, I don't know, I have a few sets of headphones and a couple of speakers here and there for a variety of purposes. How much sound gear does a person need? And why does it have to be thumping. I mean, some things should thump. But not everything.

There is still no food at CES. Or rather, the food stalls are few and the distance between them is vast. The lines are long. I think the most successful attraction at the show was the Starbucks (SBUX). After that, Nathan's (NATH). We walked around hungry most of the time, because really, who has time to wait half and hour for a hot dog or a cruller?

Beyond that, there are of course a billion cameras and digital guitars and automated environmental systems for your home and all kinds of crazy stuff, some of which actually looks keen and even addresses some consumer need. But in the end, this week, it's all about 3D TV.

Sony (SNE) and LG and Samsung and Panasonic (PC) and Nvidia (NVDA) and dozens of others were here dispensing gray glasses and then blasting your face with juicy imagery.
