It’s been a busy week for Knightscope. The company unveiled the K5, an autonomous data machine that can predict and prevent crime, at the Winter 2013 Plug and Play EXPO on December 5th, 2013 in Silicon Valley.
The K5 was well-received and won a prestigious EXPO award for its showing. The Silicon Valley Business Journal’s Cromwell Schubarth said the 5-foot, 300 pound robot “stole the show.” You can watch Knightscope’s three-minute pitch here.
Prior to the EXPO, LMGPR conducted a vigorous outreach campaign on behalf of Knightscope and held a press event with the Knightscope team to give the media a sneak peek of the K5. Attendees included:
IDG News Service
NBC Bay Area
As a result of our outreach efforts, Knightscope was featured in more than three dozen media outlets including The New York Times, Fox News, CNET, IDG News, Network World, Mashable, Venturebeat, NBC Bay Area, KRON 4 and the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Here’s a sample of the headlines:
