CES 2014 Innovations Awards and Honorees Announced

The CEA have just announced all of the winners and honorees for their CES 2014 Innovation awards.

Every year just a couple of months before CES, which is held in early January, they announce their winners and honorees. If we’re lucky we get to hear about a number of products which have yet to be announced by the manufactures, as the CEA get a sneakpeek at the upcoming products which will be on display at CES 2014.

My email blew up with numerous emails from manufacturers proudly announcing their wins.

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like these awards have revealed any exciting unknown products, but it’s great to see the CEA value in “honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics products.”
