At our previous Engadget Live events in Boston and Los Angeles, guests hopped inside a 2016 Ford Escape and checked out its voice-activated SYNC 3 system for themselves. Ford will bring that Escape down to Austin for you to check out first-hand (or experience SYNC 3 through standalone screens across the venue).
What else? Lenovo will show off some of their latest notebooks and tablets (and give some of them away to lucky guests). Drizly (the app that lets you get alcohol delivered with the tap of a button) will mix up a free drink to the first 250 guests (who are age 21 and older, of course). In related alcohol news, Vapshot will return to Engadget Live and let you experience vaporized booze. Say what?!
Also at Engadget Live Austin, we'll welcome back our friends from Chaotic Moon who will show off Halo, their haptic feedback device for the visually impaired. Corning's Gorilla Glass is on over 3 billion devices worldwide (maybe even yours!) and the company will be at the event, showing off its durable Gorilla Glass 4. If you want to get your hands on Huawei's latest devices (including their new smartwatches), there will be a table for that too. We'll also see demos from Sereneti Kitchen, KUBE, Ricoh and much, much more.
If you're going to be in or around Austin on October 16th, come join us at the Austin Music Hall. Get your free ticket (or buy an early-access one) right here.
