Shaq Stops by #VegasTech Booth at SxSW

AUSTIN, Texas -- The #VegasTech booth got some extra attention at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas, this weekend.

Professional basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal stopped by several booths, including those of some Las Vegas startup companies. Shaq offered some of them a chance to pitch their startups for him to invest in.

Twelve-year-old Henderson native Ethan Duggan was among those who scored a pitch meeting for his mobile phone application Lazy Husband, which allows the user to record their voice to respond to questions without ever actually having to talk.
