Our office worked together with Israel Export Institute and the Israel Economic Mission in Chicago to bring 16 Israeli innovative companies to CES 2016. The Israeli Delegation to the show attracted a lot of attention from attendees and media and one of our portfolio companies won the Last Gadget Standing award at the show.
The VUZE Virtual Reality Camera is the first 360-degree 3D virtual reality camera to hit the market for under $1,000. The technology, which was developed by Israeli startup HumanEyes, combines eight HD cameras in one, capturing 2D and 3D images to create a “canvas” on which users can add special effects or superimposed images. According to HumanEyes, it’s as easy to use as a typical point and shoot camera.
“It’s no surprise that the two winners of Last Gadget Standing came out of Israel; the country has become a major producer of innovative tech, with a lot of it coming out of Hebrew University. Recently, the university announced the new 3D and Functional Printing Center, which will expand the school’s already prolific work with 3D technology. I suspect we’ll be seeing a lot more from them, Landa Ventures, and Israel as a whole at CES in the future.”
