Some faker like Electromagnetic radiation hazard remover were even selling their unproven products. This is quite shame to the organizers like CAN federation to let them showcase such products. Do you believe in such devices. Please comment below.
At the end of a corner, there were bunch of talented guys from Kaicho group, who have showcased their products. They have developed a Drone, some stuffs fetching device, weather & temp sensing device. It was surprising to know that these people are not engineers. We can expect some innovative devices for utilities when they have some more knowledge and idea about presenting it. We would like to congratulate this group for their effort and encourage them for continuing their work for more innovation. All of the showcases were like regular except for this guys. So we highly recommend to visit these guys if you want to encourage them more.
