CES 2009 – We came, we saw, we drank a lot of caffeine

This was yet another great year for Bug Labs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, as the Bug crew (Alicia, Angel, Brian B, Jeremy, Kevin, Matt I, Matt P, Maurizio, Peter and myself) headed to the world’s largest technology trade show to exhibit BUG in front of over 110,000 attendees. Though the general sentiment on the show floor was a bit subdued compared to previous shows, the BUG booth was well received and well attended.

Bug Labs at CES 2009At CES 2008, where we debuted the BUGbase and first four BUGmodules, we didn’t expect much but a few press hits and the occasional BUG enthusiast stopping by to chat. We ended up winning the CNET Best of CES award, filming a bunch of b-roll and holding interviews for several hours at the booth. So the bar was pretty high going into this show. I’m happy to say CES 2009 didn’t let us down. We got some great coverage and met a ton of great people. Most importantly we debuted five new BUGmodules that will greatly expand what you can now do with a BUG.

Relevant to those BUGmodules, we received some great mentions in blogs and publication such as MAKE, Create Digital Music, Gizmodo, Engadget, CNN Money, DVICE, and Barron’s just to name a few. Check out our press section for more.

CES was just the first of many exciting events slated for Bug Labs in 2009. Keep visiting this blog or subscribe to our newsletter for updates as they happen.
