In Engadget's ongoing quest to get you, our lovely readers, as up-close-and-personal with the electronics of the future, we're partnering once more with Panasonic to take a couple (hundred) of lucky readers into an otherwise media-exclusive hands-on event. As these events tend to be, it's taking place in Jay-Z and Robert DeNiro's backyard, downtown Manhattan, and there'll be ample time to learn about Panasonic's 2013 lineup. Moreover, it's a chance to be among the first to preview Panasonic's 2013 product lines, including the new Smart VIERA ZT Series Plasma TVs and WT Series LED TVs, as well as new home audio, imaging, home appliance and personal care items.
You'll need to get yourself into the big city and over to the shindig by 6:30PM ET, but there'll be no need to arrive early and line up -- if you receive a confirmation email, you're in. We'll also be in attendance, giving out friendly conversation and the occasional hug. To enter, shoot an email to nycevents [at] engadget.com, and we'll get you all squared away.
Beyond just getting first hands-on with Panasonic's HDTVs and myriad other unreleased electronics, one very lucky attendee will give a forever home to the devices on hand in the form of a "techover" -- that means Panasonic wants to give you a whole bunch of stuff: a VIERA HDTV, Home Theater, Home Audio, LUMIX Camera, Personal Care and Home Appliance products. There'll also be other giveaways, of course. We just wouldn't feel right inviting you out and not sending you home with something to remember us by!
