Four CE devices and one major appliance were among the 17 products picked by Popular Mechanics magazine as winners of its 2002 Design & Engineering Awards.
The awards, which editor-in-chief Joe Oldham described as "the highest honor we can bestow," are based on innovation, invention, design and engineering. The winners include Kenwood's Sovereign Entre hard drive-based audio server and Internet radio; Kodak's DX3900 digital camera; Microsoft's Xbox gaming platform; Zenith's 60-inch plasma display; and Whirlpool's Duet HT high efficiency washer and dryer.
The 17 winners will be featured in the December issue of Popular Mechanics, on sale tomorrow.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
