TechCrunch Announces Finalists For First-Ever Hardware Battlefield

TechCrunch today announced 15 finalists for the first-ever Hardware Battlefield, debuting at International CES 2014 in Las Vegas. Hopeful founders began submitting their secret hardware companies last fall for the opportunity to launch at consumer electronics’ biggest event.

Modeled after TechCrunch’s popular Startup Battlefield, the Hardware Battlefield gathers emerging hardware companies to demo on a worldwide stage. Competitors have mere minutes to pitch the judge’s panel all for a shot at a $50,000 prize, brand new Hardware Battlefield trophy and exposure at CES and online to a global audience.

The Hardware Battlefield stage is open to all and there is no need for a conference badge to enter, attend the Battlefield events, or simply look on to see who nabs TechCrunch’s honors as the best hardware product. At-home viewers can watch the event live on TechCrunch.com. The winner will be announced at the TechCrunch stage during a closing ceremony at 4:45 p.m. local time on Thursday afternoon, January 9.

"Hardware is the future and these hardware startups are some of the most exciting products I've ever seen," says John Biggs, East Coast editor of TechCrunch. "We're proud to bring these amazing companies from almost a dozen countries to our Battlefield stage."

The list of Hardware Battlefield finalists for 2013 includes:

  • AdhereTech
  • Alima
  • Atlas Wearables
  • Blaze
  • CubeSensors
  • Driblet
  • Fin
  • Health2Sync
  • Livemap
  • Modbot
  • Owlet
  • PlayFresco
  • Sentry Scientific
