In its 16th year in the US and its third year in Asia, ‘Gadget’ is one of the best-loved and longest running events at CES. Based on the notion that the crowd always knows best; the contest asks a live audience to pick the “most likely to succeed product”.
From a group of exciting new products, our distinguished judges choose the top ten finalists. At the live event the audience picks a “Live Show Winner.” Past winners in the US include: Matrix Powerwatch, Linksys Velop, Ripple, the Lytro camera, Kevo Smart Lock, the Eye-Fi Card and even OnStar in its humble beginnings.
The ten finalists each have 4 minutes to demo their product in a creative and fast-paced show hosted by veteran journalist Robin Raskin. There’s a trivia contest/swag giveaway in the middle, and at the end the audience votes for the best gadget to crown as the “Last Gadget Standing.” A press release is issued immediately after.
Here’s what it takes to be the Last Gadget Standing at CES….
