Veldhoven, Netherlands – January 13, 2020 – eyrise® today announced that it has been named a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree for in the competition’s Smart Cities. The announcement was made ahead of the first-ever, all-digital CES 2021, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 11-14, 2021.
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.
eyrise® i350 Invisible Privacy Glass was honored in the competition’s Smart Cities category. The eyrise privacy glass can instantly change from clear to translucent. This innovation can help prevent the spread of Covid 19 as well. eyrise® privacy glass helps to minimize the transmission risk between workers, without compromising the benefits of visual and social connection or diminishing the aesthetic appearance in a premium office space. The glass switches into translucent privacy mode in an instant via an app, or a simple switch giving people to freedom to focus on their tasks, to undertake confidential work or just to take a break.
“This award recognizes our aspiration to create flexible and comfortable spaces centered on natural light and people. It results in unique creative and functional environments like never experienced before,” said Celine Glipa, Managing Director at eyrise B.V. “By combining technology and human-focused design, our glass partitions allow people to socially interact safely or opt for privacy instantly.”
eyrise® i350 Invisible Privacy Glass uses Merck’s Licrivision® Liquid Crystal technology, a transparent solution of cholesteric liquid crystals. It is placed between two glass sheets that are coated with a transparent conductive film. Prompted by low voltage, the liquid crystals direction shifts and moves from a random position to a well-organized orientation in a second. This results in either a glass which is scattering the light thus providing a complete privacy state, or a highly transparent glazing.
