JUDGE’S REMARKS

Swivl is a one of kind gadget that turns you into your own smartphone based camera crew. Place your phone or mobile camera like a Flip into the Swivl docking station and put the “green dot” on your body.

The Swivl base detects the dot sensor and swivels and tilts your camera to follow you around. Use it to film your own video blogs, to talk on Skype while tidying the bedroom, to film the kids at play. The company spokesperson, a unique life vlogger, Shay Carl, has a knack for bringing out the vote, but the judges thought the products was clearly a one of a kind, too.

What we like: unique product,

What we don’t like: the green dot, don’t know the range

About

Last Gadget Standing

 

Last Gadget Standing looks for products that are more than just a flash in the pan. They are products that will endure and are pioneering the ways in which the digital world will change. Any exhibitor at CES can enter a product into the Last Gadget Standing competition--though it must be a device, not a service or software. Products need to have shipped during 2012 or be available for shipping by the end of Q2 of 2013. We honor NDAs and we reserve two spaces for products that have winner potential but won't be announced until the show.

 

Special Hosts

 

We're extremely lucky this year to have Gary "Bababooey" Dell'Abate and Jon Hein, of the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show to emcee the Last Gadget Standing . They love products and they love the CES crowd.
