Netflix used CES to build hype for its new sci-fi series Altered Carbon, creating a fake booth for a fictional company from the show. The Psychasec vendor booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center exhibited ‘lab-grown bodies’ and was staffed by attendants dressed all in white.

Altered Carbon, which starts streaming in February, depicts a future where humans can transfer their minds from body to body, with a rebel protagonist brought back to life to solve a high-stakes murder case.
