The ObEN team is wrapping up Day 3 of CES 2018 — it’s been an exhilarating, exhausting, and educational three days, and with only one more day to go here is a recap of what we’ve been up to so far.

ObEN has made a splash every time we’ve come to CES, and this year is no exception. We’ve taken our 3D intelligent avatar technology to the next level, adopting the Project PAI blockchain protocol to enable everyone in the world to create their Personal AI that looks, sounds, and behaves like them.

We kicked off our first day in a big way, announcing a $10 million strategic investment from K11 and marking the expansion of our intelligent 3D avatar technology into retail and hospitality.

Day 1 also included co-hosting a party with our investor HTC Vive, where invitees got a sneak peak at the latest Vive PRO and demoed ObEN’s Personal A.I. technology.

On the showroom floor, smart technology dominated, with visions of smart homes, smart cars, even smart cities that can all benefit from the integration of Personal A.I.

Following its strong showing of the last few years, AR and VR experiences continue to improve and never fail to mesmerize.

We wrapped up Day 2 with a showcase at OMD’s annual Innovation Cocktails, where ObEN’s vision of bringing Personal AI to the Project PAI blockchain protocol enjoyed a warm reception.

Our CEO and cofounder Nikhil Jain was up bright and early on Day 3 to present at a Wunderman and memBrain A.I. and Technology panel.

Even our PAI are enjoying their time at CES 2018.

Full recap to come. For now, on to Day 4!
