CES 2018 has finished in Las Vegas – the main global exhibition of innovations and consumer equipment. Our digest is dedicated to our participation in this global event.
Every year, the leading players of the global technology and electronics industry, such as Samsung, LG, Mercedes, Nissan, Nicon, introduce their new products and present concepts of the future. And amidst all this magnificence – your humble servant, Promobot.
Promobot at CES 2018
At the exhibition, we presented a new version of our robot – Promobot V.4. The exhibition had not yet begun, yet the robot had already caught a lot of attention. Lots of visitors were constantly coming to the Promobot booth, taking pictures with the robots, and leaving contacts. Taking into account the satiety of the western audience with the innovations of the techno-industry, the excitement caused by the Russian robot is a sign that we are on the right track.

By the way, it was not without adventures. Our delegation flew in two groups: one group – through Paris, the other one – through Helsinki. The one that flew through Paris lost their luggage. The second group had three delayed flights out of four, and what is more, one of them was delayed for the whole day. In spite of everything, everyone was on time for the beginning of the exhibition and even had time to go to the casino (Las Vegas, you know)
