CES 2011: Bob Marley’s Vision of One Love, One World

A wooden “house” is not something you may ordinarily see on the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show, and that is only ONE of the reasons that crowds lined up to hear about the MARLEY audio electronics line.

The MARLEY audio electronics line is designed using eco-friendly and recycled material. There are three different lines – Jammin’, Freedom, and Destiny. The booth contained dozens of prototypes for exhibitors to check out and including earbuds, headphones, docking stations, speakers and boom boxes ranging from $29.99 to $499.99.

I knew this was MY favorite booth at CES 2011 as soon as I heard that a portion of the MARLEY audio electronics proceeds go to 1Love.org-supported charities that empower youth, protect our planet and encourage global peace.

Check out this exclusive interview I did with Bob Marley’s grandson from the show floor!

Cisco at CES 2011: How Do You Perform LIVE Interactive Magic Tricks from Las Vegas to LA Without Travelling?

Two words…..Cisco ūmi!

We were ecstatic to have the opportunity to bring our magician, Jeff, LIVE over Cisco ūmi from Santa Monica to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas so he could show off his magic tricks. Crowds of people huddled around to get on camera and show off their Exhibitor passes so that Jeff could have the opportunity to personalize their ”magical” experience with ūmi for the first time.

It was amazing to see the reaction on people’s faces as soon as they saw ūmi. Many of them thought that we were playing a video of magic tricks on our HD Television, until Jeff would comment on what folks were wearing or would take a photo of the crowd at CES who were anxiously waiting to see what Jeff had in store for them.

Check out the reaction of one of the exhibitor’s at CES 2011 as he experienced his first a ūmi magic trick experience from over 300 miles away.

Cisco CES 2011 Spotlight: Cisco ūmi at the Intel Booth

Where can you find the coolest gadget trend at CES 2011? Cisco ūmi, high definition video calling on your HD Television, at the Intel Booth! AND imagine the performance with Intel Inside®.

The Intel® media processor enables high quality A/V with sharper images, deep color, and exceptional video performance and what better way than to call our fabulous magician, Jeff, who is located in Los Angeles, CA.

We had crowds of people stopping by to watch Jeff’s interactive magic tricks and I can assure you that everyone was blown away (including me). Many people thought they were watching a video of Jeff until he pointed out what they were wearing and was able to read their name from their exhibitor’s pass over 300 miles away.
