Las Vegas – Makerbot CEO Bre Pettis made an excellent case for the power of International CES during the Leaders in Technology Dinner Wednesday.
Pettis told the crowd of industry, political and entertainment leaders how Makerbot landed its first booth, located at the far end of the LVCC’s South Hall, by winning a CEA contest. And now, just a few years later, the company has a modern factory in Brooklyn, N.Y. and is a leader in the 3D printing category.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
CES 2014 Las Vegas - Panasonic kicked off its new LCD-centric TV phase by showing an expanded lineup of step-up models, including additional Ultra HD TVs and an advanced “Beyond Smart TV” system worthy of a new Life+Screen sub-brand designation during International CES.

Las Vegas Three start-up companies exhibiting in this year's Eureka Park TechZone were named winners of the International CES 2014 ShowStoppers Launchit Pitch Competition.
Chosen from more than 200 start-ups, the top three winners were chosen by a panel of professional angel investors representing the New York Angels and the Las Vegas Angel community. The winners are:
First place: Touchjet (booth 75004), a precise touch-enabled pico projector with a built-in Android OS that transforms any empty wall into interactive 80-inch tablet.
Las Vegas The Volvo Car Group announced the launch of its Sensus Connect, an onboard infotainment and navigation solution that is built on Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud.
The onboard experience will combine connected services, infotainment, navigation and audio, including the first ever solution utilizing built-in connectivity supported by Pandora Internet Radio.

CES 2014 Las Vegas - Facing a daunting array of issues from spectrum auctions, net neutrality, the IP transition, a re-writing of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, unlicensed spectrum, cellphone use on airplanes and even his favorite historical figure, new Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler laid out his agenda during a one-on-one talk with Consumer Electronics Association president/CEO Gary Shapiro.
TWICE visits with LG, Ford, Panasonic and Samsung show floor to take a look at their hottest products.
Las Vegas – CEA president Gary Shapiro led U.S. Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker on a wide ranging discussion Wednesday afternoon that included some tough talk regarding the Obama Administration’s stance toward business.
Pritzker, who was named to her position in June 2013, discussed how the Commerce Department is attempting to create a better environment overseas so American companies can compete. This includes having teams overseas that can help U.S. corporations deal with the local government.
