Las Vegas becomes the center of the tech universe for a week each year during the Consumer Electronics Show, which is perhaps better known simply as CES. This year’s show kicks off Tuesday, Jan. 9, and runs through Friday, Jan. 12.
The trade show often makes national headlines when big name companies show off their latest flatscreen TV models and automakers roll out flashy new tech features. But the real magic is in discovering new products and innovations from hundreds of startups that aren’t household names.
With that in mind, we’ve dug through all the Texas exhibitors to spot the Austin companies showing off products at the show this year. Here they are:
Novacentrix, which makes conductive inks and photonic curing systems, is the only company listed as a “Featured Exhibitor” from Austin.
