CES 2013 Report!


CES 2013! So much to do! So much to see!

On January 8-11, 2013, we had the opportunity to go to CES - the International Consumer Electronics Show. Our Vice President of Geek Labs, Ty, and Undersecretary for the Ministry of Misinformation (a.k.a. PR guy), Steve, were in attendance. Needless to say, there was A LOT of incredible stuff to see!

Mike Tyson

Like, uh... Mike Tyson?!

We could try to write about our time there, but Steve raps it up best:

"So there we are kicking in CES, don't you know it ain't about how you dress?
Booths as far as the eye can see and just a pair of all-star chucks and me.
Headphones are all the rage, can't get nowhere without seeing them on stage.
Marketing man telling me they're for fashion, man, whatever we listen to music for the passion.

Push past the gadgets and iPhone cases, don't they understand I carry an Android most places?
Cell signal goes up and comes crashing down, it's like a Faraday Cage in this little Vegas Town.

So then I peep this little bit of robot action, two of 'em about to throw down for their faction.
The music is bumping out of the oddly placed speaker, the dance battle ends when one is weaker.
Crowd going nuts, everyone yelling out a question, I just need to find something to aid with buffet indigestion.


Yep, that's right; it's a ROBOT DANCE BATTLE!!

Pass on by this man with a rope, jumping around on the floor seems kinda dope.
Fitness they say is the only way. Right later ok, I'll take up jogging another day.
'Cause there was this one fork that paces how you eat for when I get that mad ramen in the street.

Intense jump roping

Intense jump roping.

I think it's time to stop, the boss is looking at me funny, thankfully you can't buy at this show or I'd be out of money."

Wicka, wicka, ow! Mad props to Steve for throwing it down, CES style.

(That's probably the last time we'll ever use "mad props" - sorry.)

The highlight of the show had to be Ty's interview with Engadget! He showcased and demonstrated many of our products and looked awesome while doing it. Check it out in the video below!

Got a great idea & wish it was showcased at CES? If you're a fan of all the things we make and would like to submit your own idea or invention for us to consider turning into a reality, feel free to submit it to our Idea Factory! We are always accepting submissions.

meaningless icon! "Unicorn meat?" "That's not Vegan." "Unicorn's not Vegan?" "No more Vegan diet, no more Vegan powers!!!"
