The Red Dot Awards are the design community’s version of the Oscars. And each year, like the Oscars, the best designed products are announced. In the category of Consumer Electronics and Cameras, recent past winners included Google’s Cardboard, the Leica T camera and Sony’s LSPX-W1S 4K wall projector. This year’s batch of winners was just released: from Sony’s glass speaker to Microsoft’s now-shipping VR headset, HD-shooting security cameras and the “best-ever 4K” TV. Of those 2016 winners, here are the 11 we can’t wait to get our hands (and faces) on.
