Did you miss Qualcomm Chairman and CEO Dr. Paul Jacob’s keynote opening the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show – or did you just want to watch it again?
We’ve collected some highlights from the presentation here, starting with a big surprise from a big name. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, who previously held the opening keynote slot, bounded on stage to join Paul and show off some impressive new Windows devices.

NASCAR champ Brad Keselowski joined us to demonstrate a new AllJoyn-enabled app that delivers personalized race experiences to fans at home. Using the app on their smart TV or tablet – or both – fans can follow individual drivers, listen to driver/pit crew audio chatter, view in-car video, and more.
Learning to read can be tough for children, so Sesame Workshop collaborated with Qualcomm to develop a Vuforia-enabled app that can see and identify words in the real world. And who better to show it off than our favorite eight-foot feathered friend?
