C-Lab Inside, an in-house start-up incubator that is set up by Samsung in 2012, enables its employees to discuss new business ideas. C-Lab Inside was formerly known as C-Lab(Creative Lab). Later, Samsung expanded its incubator to nurture the outside startups in Korea, by providing them all the required resources, giving access to technical know-how and other required things and data. Samsung calls it as C-Lab Outside.
Samsung every year picks up a few of its own projects from C-Lab Inside and a few from C-Lab Outside and showcases them in the CES. This time too, Samsung is participating in CES-2020 with some of its projects from both the C-Labs. With this year it would be the 5th consecutive year for C-Lab to participate in CES.
The Korean company announced that this year it will showcase 5 C-Lab Inside projects and 4 C-Lab Outside projects. Let us have a look at these projects:
