WHAT:

The Consumer Technology Association, owner and producer of CES – the global stage for innovation – today announced the official call for CES® 2018 Innovation Award entries. The annual prestigious awards competition, recognized globally across the technology industry, honors outstanding design and engineering across more than 25 consumer technology categories, including – but not limited to – Software and Mobile Apps, Smart Home, Vehicle Intelligence, Video Displays, Virtual Reality and Wearable Technologies. New categories this year include Cybersecurity, Smart Cities and Robotics.

DETAILS:

Each product category has an expert, three-member judging team composed of an independent industrial designer, an independent engineer and a member of the trade media. Entries are judged on engineering qualities, aesthetic and design qualities, use/function and user value, unique/novel features and how the design and innovation directly compare to other products in the market.
