Everything from lightbulbs controlled via Wi-Fi from a device plugged into your router, to light-up handlebars that give bikers directions could be found at HAXLR8R’s recent Demo Day in San Francisco. In this video, we’ll profile some of the highlights from the event.

HAXLR8R is a venture fund that focuses on hardware. Participants in the program spend three months in China, refining their prototypes where they could be mass produced for a cheaper price. The idea: Give tech hardware designers a crash course in getting a viable product to the marketplace. Once the accelerator is over, venture capital funds who’ve invested in the group get first crack at investing with specific companies showcased at Demo Day.
