Google is determined to win at Consumer Electronics Show 2019 with its massive 18,000-square-foot booth that includes a ride similar to the one at Disney theme parks.
It is only its second official appearance at the world's largest annual tech trading event, and Google appears to outdo itself with an interactive ride for the participants this year.
Massive Booth At CES 2019
Google's booth will let the attendees experience a ride similar to Disney's "It's a Small World" that will showcase different ways to use the Google Assistant, its own version of Amazon Alexa and Apple's Siri.
"By hopping aboard the ride, attendees experience how the Assistant can be helpful in the face of life's twists and turns - at home, in the car, and on-the-go, by following the day in the life of a small family," a Google spokesperson told Business Insider.
At last year's CES, Google built a large booth decked out with a big blue slide, a miniature train set, and a giant gumball machine packed with exciting giveaways. Google's "playground" for CES participants was equipped with a blue swirly slide and a large gumball machine containing some huge prizes such as Google Home devices and Nest security cameras. Unfortunately, the heavy rains on opening day had flooded the massive Google booth that it had to be bailed out before reopening.
Plenty To Be Seen
Ben Schoon of 9to5Google will be taking a tour of Google's CES 2019 massive booth but he already noted that "there's already plenty to be seen." The booth is bigger and there is a roof now to deal with the issues of rain like last year.
A section called "Friends of Assistant" also looks like it will house some devices that are using Google Assistant.
Mini-Restaurant, Gumball Machine
It appears there will be some kind of a mini-restaurant and there is another "gumball machine" across the street, too. A "Hey Google" phrase is plastered all over the booth and LVCC. Also, there is a large banner that is placed on the North Hall's main entrance.
The swirly slide cannot be seen so far, so, it may not be making an appearance this year. Ahead of the electronics show's official opening, Google has announced that there are now 100 million devices running the Google Assistant.
