The International CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards program provides manufacturers and developers the opportunity to have their products judged by an independent panel of journalists, designers and engineers. Judges review and evaluate each entry based on engineering qualities (including technical specifications and materials used), the product's intended use/function, unique/novel features, impacts on the manufacturer's business model and aesthetic and design qualities (using visuals provided).
The Best of Innovations designation is awarded to products that earned the highest honors from the panel of judges. These "best of the best" products will be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the CES from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, January 6, in the Marco Polo Ballroom at the Venetian.
The Best of Innovations honorees for 2007 are:
