FITT360, the world's first wearable 360-degree camera, receives CES Innovation Award for the second consecutive year

SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's first neckband wearable 360-degree camera, the "FITT360," which was developed by LINKFLOW, has received the CES Innovation Award for the second year in a row.

LINKFLOW was granted a CES 2019 Innovation Award, which is given to companies that have developed products that meet certain standards of innovation, functionality, design, and other criteria at the world’s largest annual trade show.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held each year in Las Vegas, USA, is the world's largest IT trade show. It presents a coveted Innovation Award each year for technology, design, and user value. After receiving the Innovation Award in the digital imaging component at CES 2018, LINKFLOW, a member company of the K-ICT Born2Global Centre, received the same award in the same component this year after spending 12 months enhancing the product's usability with added functions and technological development.

FITT360 is a camera that can be worn like a necklace, offering a much broader range of usability than existing 360-degree cameras, most of which are in bar format. The marketability of this revolutionary idea was recognized earlier this year in the United States when approximately US$4.2M in accumulated donations were collected via the crowdfunding platforms Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Ahead of its official release next year, LINKFLOW is currently collaborating with domestic and multinational companies on the FITT360. Such endeavors show that the product's commercial value is already widely recognized.

LINKFLOW CEO Kim Yong-kuk said, "We understand that it is very rare for a company to receive the Innovation Award more than once at CES for the same product. I am very pleased that FITT360's innovative value has been recognized at the international level for two straight years."

LINKFLOW is a startup founded in 2016 and is a spin-off of Samsung Electronics' C-Lab. It has received investments from various prominent global companies, including Lotte Accelerator and Samsung Venture Investment. After successful development of the FITT360's security industry model (FITT360 SECURITY) in September, LINKFLOW recently also entered the bodycam market.
