Electronic Industries Awards promotes Winning Products to an International Arena

“The Electronic Industries Awards (EIA) 2016”, jointly organized by the HKTDC and the Hong Kong Electronic Industries Association (HKEIA) during the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) on 13 October 2016. This year, there are 9 Gold winners among 21 winners awarded in 13 product categories. “EIA Product of the Year 2016” goes to “SafetoSleep STS200 Sleep Wellness and Breathing Monitor” by Ospicon Technology Limited which was selected among the 9 Gold winners at their booth by the judging panel on 13 Oct 2016.

The panel of judges included representatives from HKTDC, HKSTP, HKPC and CEOs from leading electronics companies. All judges assessed product’s innovation, marketability, uniqueness, eco-friendly, product design etc. as judging criteria for the EIA.

The Chief Judge Dr. Humphrey Leung, JP, HIKEIA Vice-Chairman indicated the overall standard of participated products are increased and they represent a large variety of innovation ideas. The judging panel recommended that “down-to-earth” and “humanizing” ideas are the major factors for success of recent markets. For example, the winner of “EIA Product of the Year 2016”, “SafetoSleep STS200 Sleep Wellness and Breathing Monitor” demonstrated how these factors workable. As baby falls asleep, the SafeToSleep technology begins calculating baby’s real-time breath rate. The product instantly notifies parent once their baby’s breathing becomes irregular so they can take immediate action. With mobile app, parent can monitor their baby remotely. SafetoSleep are enabled by a patented fibre optics technology, which ensures that baby is never exposed to harmful electrical discharges or electromagnetic radiation.

For the market trend, Dr. Leung mentioned most of electronic products were leaded by mobile phone years ago. With development and innovation in sensing device, cloud and network computing technologies recently, manufacturers could implement these elements as a platform for their product design and development. It would be a general business model for product development next few years.
