NEW YORK, NY, United States, via ETELIGIS INC., 11/11/2014 – – Energous Corporation ("Energous" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: WATT), the developer of WattUp™, a disruptive wire-free charging technology for electronic devices that provides power at a distance with complete mobility under full software control, today announced that WattUp has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home, Portable Power and Embedded Technologies categories. Entrants to this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
WattUp is a revolutionary, patent-and trademark-pending solution that delivers intelligent, scalable power via the same radio bands as a Wi-Fi router. WattUp differs from current wireless charging systems in that it delivers meaningful, useable power at a distance, allowing users to roam while charging. The result is a true wire-free experience that saves users from having to remember to plug in their devices or place them on a mat.
“Energous is proud to have received such a high level of distinction from the CEA,” said Stephen R. Rizzone, CEO of Energous Corporation. “To achieve honoree status in Smart Home, Portable Power and Embedded Technologies categories further validates WattUp’s wide range of use cases and the extent to which our true wire-free charging technology will transform the way the world receives power.”
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) ®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.
Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.
