We all see Las Vegas, NV as a gambling city, symbol of lust and excess. However, it is also one of the most innovative city in the world. As such, every year, the city hosts the Consumer Technology Association (CES), dedicated to the use of new technologies in the business framework.
What is the CES? CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Held in Las Vegas every year, it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years—the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
This is also the place where entrepreneurs can thrive and present their ideas to make the world a better place. The CES is one of the best way for all the people in all the business areas to meet, talk and create. Of course innovation remains at the heart of everything which makes it very important if you want to take your business to the next level.
This year, 3D printing was at the center of everyone's attention, and entrepreneurs knew it. The objective is to use this technology to create prosthetic limbs faster, at a cheaper price thus allowing people to live their lives at the fullest. Who can innovate like that better than entrepreneurs?
It started with the beautiful story of Derby, a dog that was born with a congenital deformity of his front limbs. Thanks to Derrick Campana, an orthopedic entrepreneur, she can now run! It is not a fairytale anymore, and not only animals can beneficiate from this technology. The little girl Faith Lennox received a prosthetic arm thanks to the 3D printing technology. This arm can be totally customized and adapted which was not possible before.
The world does not change with technology, but it changes thanks to the entrepreneurs using it.
