HKSTP Tech Ventures receive International Innovation Awards at CES

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024) has kicked off in Las Vegas, featuring a strong presence from Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), in collaboration with the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and the Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association Ltd (HKEIA), is spearheading a delegation of 20 Hong Kong-based innovative technology enterprises at CES 2024.

These companies are showcasing their latest R&D accomplishments in the 'Hong Kong Tech' pavilion, situated in Eureka Park, a dedicated area for startups. The pavilion highlights local innovations across four key sectors: ‘AI and Data’, ‘Advanced Manufacturing’, ‘Life & Health’, and ‘Sustainability’, all aimed at enhancing quality of life.

At this year's CES, two of HKSTP's Park companies, both participants in HKSTP's Incubation and Acceleration Programmes, have been honoured with CES Innovation Awards:

AI Guided Limited for its ‘GUIDi Smart Belt’, recognised in the ‘Accessibility and Aging Tech’ category. This innovative belt uses MEMS and AI technology to provide real-time, 360-degree navigation and route guidance for the visually impaired, significantly enhancing their travel safety and independence.

Sitan Semiconductor International Co Limited for its ‘0.13' Micro-LED Display Module’, awarded in the ‘XR Technologies and Accessories’ category. This module boasts an ultra-high pixel density (10,000 ppi), offering AR/XR products vivid colours, longevity, and superior efficiency.

The CES Innovation Awards are the pinnacle of recognition at the event, celebrating products that exhibit exceptional innovation over the past year. These products are judged on various criteria including engineering quality, design, practical value, uniqueness, and their contribution to enhancing quality of life.

Other Hong Kong tech innovations have also garnered significant attention at the show, with various business matchmaking sessions organised to create expansive business opportunities for Hong Kong's tech startups both locally and globally. Notable examples include:

HairCoSys, which presented a new hair care application utilising big data and AI. This application can be installed on tablets, enabling users to conveniently assess their hair health and receive personalised care plans.

Mangdang Technology showcased the Mini Pupper, an open-source software-powered quadruped robot designed for STEAM education. This next-generation robotic tool features autonomous navigation and object recognition capabilities, offering a versatile platform for advanced robotic applications.

Moreover, Ir Dr HL Yiu, Chief Corporate Development Officer of HKSTP, will participate in the ‘Talk to China’ dialogue series, where he will discuss emerging I&T trends, industry development, and HKSTP's role in propelling startups towards global opportunities.
