BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossia, Inc. (www.ossiainc.com), the company behind the Cota® remote wireless charging technology, today announced that the organization's Cota technology was selected as a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the "Tech for a Better World" product category. Cota technology, which is redefining wireless by safely delivering targeted energy to automatically recharge devices, was among the small percentage of products selected for the honor by scoring highly across all judging criteria.
Cota technology is poised to revolutionize mobile and battery-powered device usage by charging devices automatically — without users plugging them in or placing them on a charging pad. About the size of a small PC tower, the Cota charger uses patented smart antenna technology to safely deliver targeted energy to Cota-enabled devices up to 30 feet away so they're always powered up and ready to go. It works similarly to the way WiFi transmitters push data to devices; Cota safely delivers energy around corners and over obstacles without requiring a direct line of sight.
"CES is the premier event in the electronics and technology trade, so it's a huge honor to receive recognition from the CES 2016 Innovation Awards judges," said Hatem Zeine, founder and CEO of Ossia and creator of Cota technology. "We're convinced that untethering people from mobile device chargers is the next logical step in the mobile revolution — as significant as the ability to transmit data wirelessly. We are very excited that at CES 2016 the amazing Cota platform will be the world's first demonstrated example of true wireless power."
Ossia's unique Cota wireless charging technology has numerous commercial and consumer applications, and opportunities are expected to grow exponentially over the next several years as tens of billions of Internet of Things devices come online and wearables become increasingly important to consumers. The Ossia team fully expects that its Cota technology will drive the development of new device categories, apply to numerous new use cases and inspire fresh business models as automatic wireless charging becomes a widespread reality.
CES 2016 Innovation Award Honorees were revealed November 10, 2015 at the CES Unveiled event in New York City, which showcased the year's most innovative products in advance of the CES 2016 event in January 2016.
