AZECA CORP NAMED AS CES INNOVATIONS 2012
DESIGN AND ENGINEERING AWARD HONOREE
New York, New York, November 8, 2011 – Azeca Corp. today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the Retractable Bluetooth Headset with Vibration. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories.
The Retractable Bluetooth Headset with Vibration is unique because it allows users to insert the earbud/speaker into their ear only when a call is received. This is beneficial to users who complain of ear fatigue with standard Bluetooth headsets or do not like the esthetic effect. The vibration feature also allows operation in quiet mode giving users added security knowing that calls will not be missed.
“The Retractable Bluetooth Headset with Vibration was designed for users that appreciate all the benefits of standard Bluetooth headsets, but want the additional freedom that a retractable, clip design provides”, says Mark Martinez, President of Azeca Corp.
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The Best of Innovations honor is awarded to the products with the highest judges’ scores and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES.
Azeca’s Retractable Bluetooth Headset with Vibration will be displayed at the 2012 International CES, which runs January 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: the Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 8 in the Venetian Ballroom of the Venetian.
The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
- Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
- Aesthetic and design qualities
- The product’s intended use/function and user value
- Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
- How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace
Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
