“The VM1010 is a hit product that is getting rapidly adopted by Tier 1 consumer-electronics manufacturers. As the only ZeroPower Listening MEMS mic, it uniquely enables always-listening voice interfaces with practically zero power-draw, fulfilling a major unmet market need in smart speakers, TV remote controls, IoT products and other battery-powered devices,” said Matt Crowley, CEO, Vesper. “This is enormously attractive to designers who can now build products that will run for months or even years at a time on a single charge. Like all Vesper products, the VM1010 is also ultra-rugged, so you can immerse it in salty or soapy water, bathe it in dust or even boil it in oil, and it will keep working. We’re thrilled that the CTA has recognized Vesper as a prestigious CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for the VM1010.”

About the CES Innovation Awards

The VM1010 was evaluated across multiple scales: engineering and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present, and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

Along with other products submitted for the awards, the VM1010 was judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers, and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer-electronics products across 28 product categories. 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation.
