Also, at the CES - Paul Barnett's house is a very, very, very fine house, and sits on wheels, and for the entire of this week has been parked beneath the cavernous roof of the Las Vegas Convention Center's South Hall.

For the estimated 10,000 people who've been tromping through the modest one-bedroom house during the 2012 CEE, it can offer a significant education in some of the newest energy-saving solutions in today's home construction.

"The house also is a metaphor for a change taking place in CES and, indeed, in the consumer-electronics industry, as people move beyond merely acquiring electronic gadgetry and begin looking for some of that contemporary technology to change their lives in more profound ways," reports PSBJ.

A subsidiary of Barnett's iShow Media, NextGen Home Experience, develops model home showcases featuring the latest technological developments for homes. Those can range from do-it-yourself projects to multi-room audio controls to energy-saving products and solutions.

Bellevue-based NextGen Home Experience tours trade shows with a full-scale techie home.
