NEW YORK, Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Living in Digital Times unveils the finalists for Last Gadget Standing and Mobile Apps Showdown, its two lifestyle technology contests held at CES® 2016. There will be two winners for each award, one for the live audience vote and the online vote, which is now open.
David Pogue, Founder, Yahoo! Tech will emcee the live events which play to a standing room only crowd at the Las Vegas Convention Center. "CES is a feast for tech eyes," said Pogue, "and Last Gadget Standing and Mobile Apps Showdown put the icing on the cake."
"We began these contests years ago to make sure that CES attendees were getting a voice in deciding what the most likely products to succeed at CES would be. And it's worked," said Robin Raskin, founder and president of Living in Digital Times. "This year's variety of gadgets and apps include everything from drones to childlike robots to pain relief."
The road the finalists travelled to get here:
Each finalist was selected by a panel of judges, including journalists, engineers, designers and developers.
