Hot on the heels of our recent Popular Science Award, we are pleased to announce that the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface has been selected as an International CES “Best of Innovations 2012” award winner. The awards recognize and honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which is currently underway.

Sponsored by Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow has 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.

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.
