One of the most eye-catching stands was The House of Marley, a new range of electronics created by the family of Bob Marley in partnership with HoMedics. Their aim is to develop "premium quality, eco-conscious products that embody Bob Marley's and his family's values of equality, unity, authenticity, sustainabilty and charity".
The Marley range will be available in the US from the second quarter of 2011, and consists of three line-ups: Jammin', Freedom and Destiny. Products range from $30 headphones to iPod docks, speakers and boomboxes up to $500, as you can see below.
