At one section of Google’s giant outdoor booth at CES was an impromptu, carney-style one-man show, with a guy wearing dark sunglasses and a white Google Assistant jumpsuit loudly and enthusiastically giving away free electronics one by one to a snaking line of gawking tech-show goers.
“He got a Google Home Mini! Let’s get a picture, boss!” he yelled out as I walked by on Thursday.
“Google’s even giving out smart lights!” he told the crowd. “I didn’t even know lights could be smart! Congratulations, dude!”
