Artec Eva bags CESlive 2015 award for best 3D product

Among thousands of innovative solutions that went on display at CES 2015, Artec Eva topped the competition in the 3D technology category.

This year started with a trip to Las Vegas. At the beginning of January the Artec team landed in the Entertainment Capital of the World for one of the biggest high tech trade shows worldwide, CES (Consumer Electronics Show). With over 170,000 people turning up, this year’s show was reported to have set another attendance record in its 40 year plus history.

We were excited to find out that among the 3,600 exhibitors Artec CEO Artyom Yukhin and our partner John Beckett from Europac 3D were chosen to go live on Geek Beat’s CES channel and talk about our scanners and the Shapify Booth.

During the four days of the show, the Geek Beat hosts interviewed more than 50 selected exhibitors and two weeks later announced the winners of their inaugural Best of CESlive 2015 awards in ten categories. There were a great deal of 3D scanning solutions showcased at CES, but the best 3D product award went to Artec Eva, a professional quality handheld device that captures extremely high resolution scans in any environment, as Geek Beat put it in a post announcing the results of the competition.

“During our interview they showed us a video of the Eva being used to make a head scan of President Obama, with great, life-like results,” Geek Beat said, referencing President Obama’s 3D scanning session in which Eva was used to make the first ever 3D portrait of a head of state.

Other winners of CESlive awards include BMW’s new crash avoidance system, Zano’s tiny quadcopter drone with a built-in camera and FitBit’s Fitness Super Watch that features activity tracking with eight different sensors.
