CES Consumer Electronics Show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch
Thursday, January 10, 2008
As many of you know the annual Consumer Electronics Show is taking place in Las Vegas this week. For all of you entrepreneurs and techies out there, this is a great show. CNBC's show The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch has being covering the CES show with some fantastic coverage. As stated on the website,
The Big Idea's Road to CES is an unprecedented four-part series that provides you with the tools and strategies needed to truly bring your small business or Big Idea to next level. You'll hear directly from the innovators and leaders who have flawlessly executed their business plans for success... and are giving you the secrets to do the same.
I was fortunate to catch last night's episode and it was tremendous. Donny Deutsch is a man with amazing business prowess. I had forgotten about how much I enjoyed his show. Every weeknight at 10p/1a ET, Donny interviews everyone from budding entrepreneurs to Billionaires, discovering their secrets to success and showing YOU how to turn your idea into a BIG IDEA. The thing about Mr. Deutsch is that he seems to be just a regular guy. For such a successful person he remains remarkably grounded. He has a great knack for surrounding himself with the right people. Case in point he recruited popular tech blogger, Robert Scoble for commentary on CES. Robert was like a kid in a candy store on the show. Here's a clip of Scoble on Fast Money. Robert mentioned that the tech trend for 2008 will be mobile.

CES is hosted by the Consumer Electronics Association and is the premier event for consumer electronics. The first CES took place in New York City in June of 1967 with 200 exhibitors and 17,500 attendees. Since then, CES has grown more than eleven-fold. Now 2,700 exhibitors, fill 1.8 million net square feet of exhibit space to showcase their latest products and services to more than 140,000 attendees. Check out the CES fact sheet for more details of the show.

The Big Idea's Road to CES program featured four companies looking to become the next big thing.

Lightglove - a revolutionary
tool that allows for virtual typing and control.
Bug Labs - a collection of easy-to-use, open source hardware modules, each capable of producing one or more Web services. These modules snap together physically similar to Legos which was the inspiration for the product. Peter Semmelhack wanted some blog press so we thought that we would do our part.
Mogo Mouse - a thin, Bluetooth-enabled computer mouse designed for travel. These actually look really cool. I would love to try one. (Mr. Westover, if you happen to be reading this, feel free to send one our way to try out.)
H20 Audio - yup that's right an underwater MP3 player or at least waterproof cases for mp3 players. This was funny as many of the panelists mentioned that Kristian Rauhala who was pitching the product to Radioshack didn't have a great presentation and "wasn't good at listening".. however poor presentation didn't seem to matter as Radioshack was interested in the product.

As I went to the Big Idea's Road to CES site this morning, I found even more great information including a web exclusive on reigniting your business with a story of Henry Juszkiewicz, CEO of Gibson Guitar. Great stuff!

I must say CNBC did it right with their coverage of the Consumer Electronics show in Vegas. The show that I watched yesterday evening was truly inspirational. Good luck to all of the aspiring entrepreneurs out there.

    As a budding entrepreneur, I enjoyed watching Donny's show. Some of my questions about entrepreneurship were answered. It's great help.

    Watching the YES movie at www.TheYESmovie.com might be a good learning experience also for entrepreneurs. It is from Louis Lautman.
