Akoha Unveiling Tomorrow at TC50; Free Kits for Techvibes Readers

Posted by Greg Andrews

Akoha is a Montreal-based startup that's been running stealth for some time now. Their site is very vague on what it is, but the words "community" and "play" are used a lot.

They'll be presenting tomorrow, September 10, during the Games session sometime between 10:30 - 11:45 PDT. You can tune in and watch; the whole conference is being streamed live via uStream.

Like the startup, the nature of the kits are a mystery, but who can turn down a mystery box? I know I can't. A limited quantity are available for a limited time, so be quick on the mouse.
