NIVPAT technology allows any pattern to be recognized and linked to online content.  Launching with t-shirts bearing images that appear to be identical, the NIVPAT application identifies the unique profile attached to that particular shirt and links to the individual’s social media profile.  The app recognizes different versions of the same image as assigned to different owners, both in-person and on screen — which could make the system work as a trigger for second screen content.  Tests of the application showed a very impressive speed of image recognition, comparable to that of a QR code.

LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255


The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.


The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.


Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.


By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
