After last year’s kefuffle at the Eurogamer Expo, you would have thought the organisers behind CES 2013 would have taken note, but apparently not. “Some visitors to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas are angry that the so-called ‘booth babes’ are back despite much criticism at last year’s event,” reports the BBC.
They had approached the subject last year and video shows an unnamed man, presumably a representative of CES, describing the story as “cute but frankly irrelevant.”
This year the ‘babes’ are back in force and the BBC has produced another video but this time the organisers of CES refused to discuss the scantily clad ladies spread across the show floor.
Rachel Skylar from Woman’s tech group ‘Change the Ratio’ points out the obvious fact – tech is no longer just for men.
