The annual global cars and gadget fest Consumer Electronics Show will go fully digital next year. The organisers of CES has made changes to their plans due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Amid the pandemic and growing global health concerns about the spread of Covid-19, it's just not possible to safely convene tens of thousands of people in Las Vegas in early January 2021 to meet and do business in person," said CTA chief executive Gary Shapiro in a release.

The coming CES will be an online event delivered to "the comfort and safety of your home or office," the CTA said in a release.
