In the meantime, we’ve put together a list of over 20 startups that will be exhibiting. Take a look and when you get to Hong Kong, have a chat when you find them as you’re exploring the venue. They’re working some pretty cool things.



Chui is a smart doorbell. What’s that? An intelligent doorbell that uses facial recognition to make your home keyless, secure, and individualised.
