The Globe and Mail — Dr. Wei-Shin Lai's story
Sin City's CES: The absurd hubris of the hustle is everywhere
It's worthwhile remembering that everyone at CES has a back-story. Take Dr. Wei-Shin Lai, the CEO of AcousticSheep LLC, from Erie, Penn.

Her solution is a fleece headband with wireless speakers inside (surprisingly effective at blocking out other sounds).
