This week at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas we have partnered with CEA to produce the Tech Cocktail Innovation Showcase at the official CES Tweetup event on Friday, January 7th. The event has sold out with over six hundred attendees registered. We were happy to work with CES on this event as ten tech companies will be on hand to showcase their latest product innovations.

The following companies will be part of the Tech Cocktail Innovation Showcase:

Mavia by Mavizon Tech (formerly AutoBot) is a user-friendly way to integrate your car with your mobile lifestyle.

Dynamic Inc. is a Pittsburgh based company that offers the Card 2.0, a paper-thin, flexible computer platform in the size and shape of a traditional credit card.

GameSkunk enable users to smell the action; the smell of an alien planet, explosions on the battle field, crashes on the race track, and even the sweat of the sport. gaMedSkunk is used in more serious games such as virtual reality Post Traumatic Stress Disorder therapy. It will be used for the treatment of PTSD in war veterans and enlisted soldiers who have served or are still serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since scent is emotional, it is used for the treatment of brain disorders, including stroke and autism, as well as phobias.
