This week Ziphius will be taking part in two CE Week events to showcase and demo their product to an audience of media, retailers and thought-leaders from across the U.S.A.
Following its victory at the 2013 Engadget Expand Insert Coin: New Challengers competition, where Ziphius won both the judge’s $20,000 USD, as well as the reader’s choice $5,000 USD prizes, the aquatic drone, brain-child of Azorean, a YDreams’ spinout company, returns to the U.S.A. for CE Week, a week-long celebration of what’s new in technology and consumer electronics taking place in New York City from June 24-28, 2013.
Starting today, June 24th from 6 to 10 p.m., Azorean welcomes the public to explore aquatic drone Ziphius at the “Engadget+gdgt Live Conference”, which is free and open to all attendees. On Wednesday, June 26th, Ziphius will be at “ShowStoppers” at CE Week Lineshows, a table-top showcase, where companies set up their products for demonstration. This event is directed at the media, retailers, distributors and industry leaders, who move from table to table, discussing the products and conducting interviews.
Both CE Week events are crucial for Azorean’s Ziphius, whose Kickstarter campaign is in the eminence of being launched. Azorean hopes the campaign will play a pivotal role in helping to bring Ziphius to the mass market by the end of 2013 with a price point at around $200 to $250 USD.
