Arlington, VA – 11/12/2013
– The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®
announced today its 2014 International CES®
Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award Honorees. The CES Innovations Awards honor outstanding design and engineering advancements across 28 consumer electronics product categories, including two new categories focused on some of the latest trends: 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing and Wearable Technologies.
The 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing category recognizes 3D printers, accessories, software, platforms, and any electronic device that facilitates the use of additive manufacturing. Wearable Technologies features electronic devices typically worn by consumers that use sensors for navigation, information-gathering, communicating information or other sensory enhancements.
“This year’s CES Best of Innovations Award Honorees run the gamut of next-generation technologies changing the way we live, work and play,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy, CEA. “The 2014 Innovations Award program saw a record number of entries. We continue to be awed by the creative thought and design behind these award-winning innovations, which reflect the true spirit of CES and the technology industry.”
The Best of Innovations designation is awarded to products with the highest judges’ scores, which will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase in The Venetian at the 2014 International CES. Owned and produced by CEA, the 2014 CES, the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, runs January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 26 Best of Innovations Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled LAS VEGAS: the Official Media Event of the International CES, from 4-7 p.m. Sunday, January 5, at Mandalay Bay, Level 3, South Seas Ballroom C.
