We have just finished up today at CES. It was a great show, and I want to thank all my team mates for their outstanding 20 hour days to make this event successful. Here’s a quick recap of the key highlights.
We are totally jazzed to win the CES Honoree Innovations Award in the “Best in Mobile Accessory” category. PLUS…we were the winner in “Last Gadget Standing” on-line vote. The press coverage from this win alone translates to a very significant awareness boost. Expect to see some additional TV press coverage around the world from many stations/programs that shot stories at our booth, and plan to broadcast following CES. We will post all the buzz we find on our Buzz page over the coming days.
We are now focused on gearing up for our U.S. launch of SHOWWX, and after thousands of demonstrations of the product here, we are ecstatic to finally bring it to the U.S. It is still quite amazing to hear visitor after visitor say “That’s Awesome!”. We are really feeling good about this direct validation from actual end users about the product’s performance and functionality with a variety of devices including the iPod.
Our teammates Dave Lashmet and Andrew Rosen also did a great job of presenting the PicoP enabled application for first person gaming. While this is still a prototype, here’s an enthusastic review by gaming guru, Devin Coldewey, from Crunch Gear.
Off in our private meeting space, we had numerous meetings with companies interested in embedding our PicoP display engine into their next generation products. Customers who have already purchased our PicoP Evaluation Kit during 2009 are now getting in line for samples which are expected to be available at the end of the first quarter/early second quarter.
Finally, at our booth in the iLounge area we had a wonderful time delighting visitors with fun and humor from our Dr. Evil and Austin Powers look-a-like. The synergy between the world’s leading evil ‘laser’ villain, and his arch nemesis ‘groovy baby’ character was a big hit! Check it out Y’all!
See you back in the Northwest and more to come!
