I got a note yesterday from David Abramson – an MBA student at Stanford – about The Cool Product Expo which is taking place from noon to 6pm on Wednesday (April 11th) at the Arrillaga Alumni Center (326 Galvez Street) at Stanford.  Admission and parking is free – the event sounds very cool.  Following is a description.

The Cool Product Expo is an annual exposition celebrating innovative technologies and product design. An attendee walking through the Expo will encounter exciting demonstrations by budding startups, global manufacturers, local design studios, and university research projects. It is a great opportunity to learn about the latest technology advances, as well as interact with successful entrepreneurs and industry leaders.

This year the Expo will be hosting 40 companies, including Tesla Motors, Toyota, Sling Media, Aliph, Venture Vehicles, Method, Linden Labs (creators of Second Life), Neurosky, Logitech, AiLive, Frog Design, Oliso, Powercast, Optibike, Lunar Design and many more.

As a special feature this year, Gibson (renowned maker of fine guitars) will be giving away a cherry-sunburst Les Paul Standard electric guitar with 50s style neck. Entering the drawing is free, and the winner must be present at the time of the drawing.

The Cool Product Expo is supported by Stanford Graduate School of Business and Stanford’s Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing (AIM). The event attracts over 1000 visitors each year include Stanford students, technology investors, school children, and members of the greater Bay Area Community. Please feel free to invite your family, friends and colleagues to this entertaining and educational event.
