A number of Korean small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are scheduled to participate in CES 2015 and show off Korea’s stance as a tech powerhouse.
In particular, some firms like Thinkware and 3L Labs have already received 2015 CES Innovation Awards, and thus they are drawing a lot of attention in the global market.
A total of 119 Korean SMEs are going to participate at CES 2015 in Las Vegas to be held from Jan. 6 (local time), and they are planning to launch marketing campaigns for their products.
According to the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, 42 companies have set up booths in a space designated for Korean companies at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In addition, 12 Korean firms have set up booths in the space assigned to Korean companies at the 2015 PMA at CES in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Another 65 local companies have registered for independent booths. Accordingly, a total of 119 domestic firms are going to take part in the trade show as a result.
A large number of companies are planning to showcase mobile devices, accessories, and displays. Some will unveil their new technology through wearable devices, driving support systems, smart home systems, household appliances, and broadcasting systems.
Thinkware is targeting the global market with the F750 dashcam, which has already received a 2015 CES Innovation Award for auto accessories, controllers, and navigation areas. This product has a micro SD and memory card, which prevent data loss or damage in the event of a serious collision.

3L Labs, which has won a CES Innovation Award in the wearables category, will debut its wearable device called the Foot Logger. After being put inside a shoe, this product can measure the number of steps and the distance of the wearer's run through a pressure censor and a triple axis accelerometer. Since it can measure the walking and running of the wearer, it is possible to check how much the person exercises in a day. The product can be used for medical purposes as well.
