The Sexier Side of CES 2011

Vendors at CES 2011 didn't miss a chance to make a sexy sell (David Carnoy/CNET) CBS

At last year's CES, we put together a slideshow called "Sexy sells at CES" that highlighted part of the human element that companies use to help make their gadgets stand out on the crowded show floor--or at least encourage people to stop at their booths.

Anyway, on to the slideshow. As always, feel free to comment.
