Though it is traditionally more practical minded than the more flamboyant design realms like fashion or web design, Industrial designers get to utilize their creativity to better reach wide cross sections of the population - and the Consumer Electronics Association is honoring their contributions through the CES Innovations Awards Program.
Beginning in 2003, the awards were created to recognize the most inventive new technologies in consumer electronics products across the industry''s most popular categories including digital imaging, sustainable technologies, home appliances and in-vehicle navigation.
This year''s best innovations saw nominees including an electronic steam based washer and dryer, mono amplifiers, an extremely powerful wireless router and a next generation touch screen PC.
California industrial design firm Stuart Karten Design, who was recognized for both an advanced gestural controller for hearing aids and an instant charger for batteries, believe that the awards add prestige to the field of industrial design even claiming that the award helps "cement (the company''s) reputation as an industry leader providing advanced technology in a way thats accessible for consumers."
The award winning designs will be on display at the international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas in January.
