VINCI Named As CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award Honoree

New York, November 13, 2012 – VINCI today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Award Honoree for its VINCI Curriculum. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.

Designed to prepare children for school success, with a special focus on building learning capabilities, VINCI Curriculum inspires everyday learning with 43 monthly themes and subjects to cover all 3 levels of learning: The CuriousThe Confident; and The Capable. VINCI Curriculum saves parents time on searching and qualifying apps by providing a complete all-in-one learning system for the intellectual development of toddlers and preschoolers. VINCI Curriculum is designed for children aged 1.5 to 6 years old.

VINCI Curriculum runs exclusively on VINCI Tab II and VINCI Tab II M.  VINCI tablets are specifically designed with safety in mind for children with tempered glass, rubber handles, VINCI Curriculum and the VINCI Kids Library that engages, educates and entertains kids ages 18 months to 9 years old. It also is a fully functioning Android tablet with all of the features of an adult tablet – Web browser, Skype, email, etc. - when parent control is turned off.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this CES Innovation Award for our VINCI Curriculum,” said CEO and Inventor Dr. Dan Yang. “VINCI Curriculum is the world’s first developmentally-designed digital curriculum comprised of a series of age specific learning apps and assessment tools. We are excited to receive this recognition, as we believe it’s important to give children quality digital tools. VINCI is a partner for parents looking to augment their children’s education from an early age.”

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

VINCI Curriculum will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:
  • Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
  • Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided
  • The product’s intended use/function and user value
  • Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
  • How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace

Products chosen as an Innovations honoree reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.
