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 2016 – live on our special coverage page and, if you’re in Las Vegas, you’re invited to visit our stage at CES Tech West in the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

You don’t need a show pass to watch the presentations on our stage and we’ll have giveaways, interviews, and other fun stuff all day.
