An amazing start to the year – PDD-designed night vision smartphone attachment, Blazespark™, is honored at CES 2017 Innovation Awards.

PDD’s client, eMagin Corporation, is a leader in OLED Micro Displays and is a company at the forefront of the virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) revolution. eMagin has been named a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Digital Imaging product category for PDD-designed BlazeSpark™. The innovative product offers the most advanced NIR night vision technology for consumers.

BlazeSpark™ will allow consumers to see clear, high-resolution images in the dark by inserting their Android™ mobile phone into a revolutionary case that displays what the night vision sensor is seeing. A BlazeSpark™ app can be downloaded from Google Play™, which will allow users to share their experience worldwide, record, chat and live stream content within the BlazeSpark™ network or to other social media sites.

Karsten Fischer, CEO of PDD, said “It is very exciting that a PDD designed product has been recognised for its outstanding design and engineering in the cutting edge consumer electronics sector. A great start to 2017…..”

Kenneth “Kip” Kokinakis, President of eMagin’s HMD Group, said “We are extremely proud to have been awarded this prestigious honour by CES, the world’s launching pad for new innovation and technology products for consumers. This award represents the hard work and dedication that our talented team has put into designing next-generation technology products.”

BlazeSpark™ will be on display and available for demonstration at CES, booth #42960 at the Sands Exhibition Area. eMagin will also be teaming up with Steve Gonsalves from hit show Ghost Hunters. Mr Gonsalves will be available for photos and a chat.
