Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID said, "Pepcom's Digital Experience!®, a technology focused media event on Monday night, kicked off a flurry of media coverage and interest in the Wocket that was followed by a packed booth from the moment the doors opened on the first day of the CES show. This clearly demonstrates that secure payment technology and identity theft protection are huge issues for 2015." He also noted, "The two performances by master pickpocket and entertainer Apollo Robbins was a big draw for attendees. Apollo used his skills to show how easily a wallet can be stolen and how potentially everyone needs a Wocket to protect their credit cards and identity."
NXT-ID is exhibiting its Wocket smart wallet at the 2015 International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, NV at LVCC, South Hall 1, booth 21926.
Apollo Robbins will be performing at the booth on Wednesday January 7th at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Media is invited to interview Apollo following each performance.
Apollo Robbins is a performer, speaker, consultant and one of the world's leading experts on pickpockets, confidence crimes and deception. A pioneer in the application of deception to operational environments, Robbins uses pick-pocketing and sleight-of-hand to demonstrate perception management, diversion techniques and self-deception
