A new epicenter of advance consumer technology research and development took center stage when the Taiwan Tech Arena made its debut at CES 2019. Introducing the world to 44 of the most promising Taiwanese technology start-ups, the Taiwan Tech Arena debuted in the Eureka Park Marketplace in the Sands Expo & Convention Center at Booth #52443.
According to Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology Deputy Minister Yu-Chin Hsu, the 44 companies were selected based on a careful review by the Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology, in conjunction with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and a group of influential Silicon Valley venture capitalists who have invested in many of the selected companies.
“The group of companies we [brought] to CES 2019 represents the very best and brightest of Taiwan’s red hot technology sector,” commented Deputy Minister Hsu. “These companies [showcased and demonstrated] a host of new technologies in the areas of Health Sciences, Artificial Intelligence, AR/VR, Wearable Devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). These advances… are world class in nature.”
Underscoring his point, Deputy Minister Hsu pointed to the fact that eight Taiwanese companies were singled out this year with CES 2019 Innovation Awards. Awards were presented to ELECLEAN for its eco-friendly disinfectant spray, Han-Win Technology Co. for its Inno Safety Smart Battery, Lubn for its world’s first 4G/LTE smart key with vision, Genius Holdings for its exOxygen Breath Checker, Taiwan Main Orthopedic Biotechnology for its Caduceus Surgery Glasses, STARWING Technology Company for its SiPS-STARWING Intelligent Indoor Positioning System, OmniEyes for its AI-enabled video camera, and Gintel Technology for its cloud intelligent aquaculture water toxic concentration monitoring system.
