The Consumer Electronics Show 2019 is just around the corner and before the four-day tech fest begins, Apple has put a giant billboard on display at a hotel near the Las Vegas Convention Centre (LVCC) that takes a direct shot at Android's security features.

Now the startup's founder Lora Haddock has hit back in an open letter published earlier this week detailing the different explanations from the organisation that have been given for revoking the award.

Lora Haddock wrote a post on the company's website claiming the hands-free female massager was vetted by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and a panel of expert judges, who scored the device highly enough for it to be among the products recognised in the awards.

CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro and Executive Vice President Karen Chupka reportedly followed up with a memo stating that Lora DiCarlo's product-designed with university robotics engineering labs and a team of engineers-was "actually ineligible" for the robotics and drone category.

Daily Star Online has approached CES and CTA for a response. More than 180,000 people are attending this year's CES, which will have more than 4,500 exhibits.
