Ballmer, Big Bird and Desmond Tutu enliven Qualcomm's big night at CES

James Niccolai | Jan. 8, 2013
Qualcomm called on some big names Monday to ensure its opening-night keynote at the International CES wasn't a dud.

The clip was shown playing on a tablet running the new 800 series chips, somewhat justifying his presence. Del Toro also talked about how technology and digital effects are "allowing creation to keep up with the imagination."

Former Archbishop Tutu appeared in a video-taped segment when Jacobs was discussing Qualcomm's Tricorder X Prize, a competition to build a handheld device that can monitor and diagnose health issues.

"Mobile is going to have a transformative impact on health here and in Africa," Tutu said.

Maroon5 played out the evening with its song "Payphone."
