The annual DEMO conference allows entrepreneurs to unveil their products to an audience of investors, industry analysts and press. DEMO in past years has been the podium where the Palm PDA and TiVo were launched. The show charges the companies to get access to this A-level audience.
The event however has gone over the top if you ask me. Most product introductions fail to create any exitement, causing me to remove DEMO off my list of "conferences to attend". Having to justify their attendence, the audience is all too eager to spot the next big thing and will loose the ability to critcally look at the offierings. This is demonstrated by VKB's keyboard.
Even VKB of Israel talked about the technology ages ago, by which it seems to have violated DEMO's policy requiring that product announcements are about new introductions. It's embarrasing that VKB dares to repeat an introduction it did two years ago. And even more embarrasing that the "high level" audience fell for it.
