Applications and mobile accessories for tech geeks from CES ShowStoppers!
The Consumer Electronic Show (also known as CES) is in full swing in fabulous Las Vegas. The Wynn Hotel was host to an unforgettable Tuesday evening of ShowStoppers; an event of innovative products, amazing companies and an opportunity for industry professionals to meet the press.
Talk of the evening was WowWee‘s latest tech toy, MiP; short for Mobile Inverted Pendulum. MiP is the latest of WowWee’s robot line that was designed by WowWee and in association with UCSD’s Coordinated Robot Labs. MiP is controlled by iOS and Android devices and features GESTURESENSE™ Technology and balances objects equivalent to its weight. MiP was quite the performer at ShowStoppers bringing viewers mini cans of soda across the display table. MiP will be available Spring 2014 and is ready for pre-order.
