A look at Nepal's equivalent of CES
BB has some great images from Nepal’s CAN InfoTech, a 17-year-old tech trade show. It had 238 stalls where folks were flogging amazing 8TB hard drives and the three year old Nokia N81.
It’s absolutely laudable that these guys are doing what they’re doing. Outside of Western Europe, CE manufacturers tend to ignore the rest of the world, focusing on English-speaking countries to break all of their goodies. That Nepal is as dedicated to nerdity as we are is fun to see.
Note that instead of bright lights the Sony booth actually used big dishes made of aluminum foil to focus light on the booth.
