The Consumer Electronics Association announced its annual Best of Innovation award winners today, including eight products that PopSci had featured in our What’s New coverage.
Since 1989, CEA has honored products based on recommendations from independent panels of designers, engineers and journalists, with advice from the Industrial Designers Society of America. Judging criteria include engineering quality, aesthetic design and uniqueness.
This year’s winners fall into 32 categories, including audio accessories, computer hardware, home appliances, video components and wireless handsets. To qualify, products have to go on sale between March 1, 2007, and February 29, 2008. Six of the winning products are still under wraps and will probably be announced at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, running from January 7 through 10.
See the CEA Web site for the 26 announced winners. And launch the photo gallery here to see the products that PopSci also honored for innovation.
