The announcement was made during CES Unveiled New York, an invite-only tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and industry leaders for a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at CES 2019, which will run January 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV.
An annual program that celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition.
Slighter is a smoking-reduction solution, featuring a learning lighter connected to a mobile app. Slighter’s AI algorithm records and analyzes a smoker’s behavior and develops a tailored cessation program that gradually reduces the number of cigarettes per day. By successfully reducing daily intake of cigarettes, the user can reach unprecedented level of confidence that would encourage extra efforts and quit the smoking habit altogether with minimal withdrawal symptoms.
The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), owner and producer of CES. CTA has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Slighter will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming CES 2019.
CES 2019 will showcase life-changing technology across every major industry, featuring 4,500 exhibitors across 2.75M net square feet (260K net square meters) of exhibit space. CES provides access to the very latest transformative tech, such as 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, smart home, smart cities, sports tech, machine learning and more.
