The CES Firewall for Young Entrepreneurs

TechCrunch calls this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) the year of the "Gadget start-up" - but the new model -- young, underage designers launching on Kickstarter, such as Wingstand's Daniel Haarburger, or high-tech teens planning to retire rich at 21 may have to find a new way to get noticed.

The problem? Location, location, location. How does a young entrepreneur under the age of 21 enter the world of CES through the high wattage portal of Las Vegas?

Worth noting: Entrepreneurs under the age of 21 may also find it difficult to rent a hotel room in any Vegas hotel. And worse, since most industry parties -- one of the key ways people connect -- include drinking, how will these underage, low budget tech visionaries get noticed at a giant show?

Is this the time for them to crank up high school style pranks to get noticed?
