Welcome to Hardware Battlefield, the premiere launch competition for hardware startups by TechCrunch. Over the next several weeks, hopeful founders will give their young, unseen companies the opportunity to launch at consumer electronics’ biggest event: CES.

Teams are competing for a $50,000 prize and our newly anointed Metal Man trophy.

We’ll be running three straight days of exciting presentations live from the Consumer Electronic Show. You can watch the event – and all of our live coverage of CES 2015 – live on our special coverage page and, if you’re in Las Vegas, you’re invited to visit our tent in front of the LVCC.

You don’t need a show pass to watch the proceedings in the tent and we’ll have giveaways, interviews, and other fun stuff all day.
