We landed here in Vegas on Sunday afternoon and geared up for an action-packed week of reporting from the annual Consumer Electronics Show.

First stop: CES Unveiled, a media expo of sorts where more than 100 companies from around the world demo their products before CES opens to the public.

The cutest part is that Groove X makes various outfits for Lovot, which went on sale for nearly $3,000 last month in Japan.
