GigaOM, a global technology media company, has announced the finalists of its inaugural Mobilize Product Showcase, a competition featuring the most exciting innovations in connected hardware. Taking place October 16-17 in San Francisco, Mobilize 2013 will examine the challenges and opportunities presented by the burgeoning Internet of Things.
The eight finalists below will take the stage at Mobilize to showcase new products that are poised to change everyday life:
