DEMO Fall 2012- October 1-3 | Silicon Valley, CA

Truly disruptive technology is hard to discover, but it is alive and thriving! It’s living and breathing all around you. It’s working overtime to make your life faster. Easier. Better. It’s helping you to achieve more. Do more. Enjoy more. And it’s waiting for investors and buyers like you to bring it to life.

– Technology like Intuitive Motion’s Zboard, that’s the world’s first weight-sensing electronic skateboard which could be the next commuter trend.

– Or TourWrist, which gives travelers point-and-click capability to capture and share 360-degree panoramic visual experiences on their iOS devices and is poised to transform image sharing as you know it.

– And Voxeet, a new approach to conference calls that combines high-definition voice quality, speaker recognition, 3-D sound and visual cues to replicate the quality of real-world meetings on your office or mobile phone.

These products and many more came to life at the recent DEMO Spring event and you are sure to discover new groundbreaking technology just around the corner at DEMO Fall 2012 .
