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.
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.
In the true spirit of “the crowd always knows best” we have a special treat for you this year. Our good friends at Magisto, www.magisto.com are helping us create “Last Gadget Standing,” the movie. And you all get to be the directors. Here’s how it works. Download the Magisto app on your iOS or Android phone and then follow the simple instructions that you’ll find placed on your chairs at the live Last Gadget event. Take videos of the crowds, of Jon Hein and Gary Dell’Abate, the swag, the demos and anything else that strikes your fancy. Magisto will give you a finished movie in just three clicks and we’ll be posting the best videos on the Last Gadget.
You’ll love being a movie maker with Magisto.
