GREENER GADGETS AT CES
We’re excited to announce that this year there is a Greener Gadget tech zone at CES to show off up-and-coming innovations in clean tech. News is already trickling in from this year’s CES, and we’re excited to see that many big name electronics companies are unveiling great innovations in green tech. From energy-efficient designs to eco-friendly materials and innovative new applications, this year’s show is shaping up to be the greenest event yet.
We’re also excited to announce that this year CES will host a Greener Gadgets Panel on Sat Jan 10th, entitled The Future Of Consumer Technology. Moderated by our friend (and Greener Gadgets partner) Marc Alt, this panel will feature Mary Lou Jepsen from One Laptop Per Child and PixelQi, David Floyd from Freeplay Energy, and Jeff Omelchuck from the Green Electronics Council. Greener Gadgets will also be setting up a Clean TechZone featuring some great new technologies that benefit both the environment and the sustainability of the global economy.
