From a Graphene Radiator To Blockchain Voting App, CES 2023 Recognized Its Best of Innovation Honorees

The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.

During CES Unveiled New York, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced the CES 2023 Innovation Awards honorees, including those recognized as Best of Innovation honorees. The CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. The CES 2023 Innovation Awards program received a record-high number of over 2100 submissions.

An independent panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers, and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation and functionality, aesthetic, and design. Those rating the highest across each category receive the “Best of Innovation” designation.

The announcement was made ahead of CES 2023, the world’s most influential technology event.

Many honorees will showcase their product in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES, located in the Venetian Expo. Last month, CTA announced Innovation Awards honorees during CES Unveiled events in Paris and Amsterdam, including 28 products from France and 12 from the Netherlands. Those designated as honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at

CES has partnered with the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) to showcase the critical role of technology in support of the United Nations’ efforts to advance human security around the world. For CES 2023, CTA introduced a new category of Innovation Awards showcasing technologies advancing human rights. The Human Security for All category includes eight new tech subcategories.

Owned and produced by CTA, CES 2023 will take place in Las Vegas on Jan. 5-8, 2023 with Media Days taking place Jan. 3-4, 2023.

Attendees will experience new technologies from global brands, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees. The show will highlight how innovations in sustainability, transportation and mobility, digital health, the metaverse and more are addressing the world’s greatest challenges. Audiences will hear from industry experts during live keynotes, including leaders from John Deere, BMW and AMD.

Graphene Radiator By @Graphene Square

Graphene Radiator By Graphene Square

The Graphene Radiator is a virtual fireplace that generates heat from graphene, the thinnest (one-atom-thick) and strongest material in the world. Recently discovered, its discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics (2010). And now, we bring it to use, where heat can be generated more efficiently with less space and 30% less energy.

@SF (Super Fast) Battery By SK

SF (Super Fast) Battery By SK

SF Battery is the world’s fastest charging electric vehicle battery commercialized. Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV 6 has the fastest charging performance in the world. These cars had been named numerous awards such as 2022 World Car of the Year, German Car of the year. This battery is manufactured by SK On, using Nickel 83% Cathode which is the highest nickel content. With the help of SK On’s fast charging protocol, this battery is charged from 10% to 80% within 18 minutes. Quick charging technology could cause vehicle fires; however, SK On’s has achieved zero number of vehicle fire.
