This past weekend, TAO attended the fourth annual SVIEF—Silicon Valley Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum—which is an international conference designed to connect technologically inclined businesses in the US with their counterparts in the Asia-Pacific region. The focus of the event is on innovation in the high-tech industry, and both President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore have spoken at this event.

The event brought together people from all over the world including Apple Co-Founder, Steve Wozniak and Steven Chu, former US 
Secretary of Energy.

The TAO Team had a great time demoing the new TAO Wellshell 2.0 prototype at the event. Pictured below in order are: President and Co-Founder Philo Northrup, Program Manager Konnie May, IT Director Nick Torres, and Web Development Manager Iskren Vankov.



Nick even demoed TAO to a guy in NYC via TELE presence BeamPro (the robot)!

We also had the chance to see some other really cool tech at the event: 3D printed bras, the Linkbot by Barabo, the Oculus VR controller, drones by Ehang Inc, and many more.


TAO Wellness was honored to receive the SVIEF 2014 Innovation Award . Pictured below is President and Co-Founder, Philo Northrup, receiving the award next to another winner, the BeamPro robot!
