One of the highlights of CES annually is the Innovation Awards and getting a chance to see the 28 innovative honorees products at CES Unveiled. If nominated Innovation Awards honorees will be featured in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2019. The Innovation Awards program recognizes two levels of honorees among 28 award categories:
- Honoree: A product or technology that scores above the threshold set for a specific category.
- Best of Innovation: Given to only the highest-rated product or technology in each category — or to multiple, in the event of a tie.
Recently the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced the CES® 2019 Innovation Honorees, including those products recognized as Best of Innovation Honorees. The annual Innovation Awards program celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation Awards recognizes Honorees across 28 product categories.
Once a product is submitted for the Innovation Awards program a panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, review submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal and engineering. They also evaluate how the products compare with competitors. Products recognized as Best of Innovation received the highest ratings in their respective product categories. Below is the list of CES Innovation Awards honorees.
