New RokBed Fuzion+ case for the iPhone 4/4S honored for engineering and design at CES 2013
SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rokform®, a leading manufacturer of functional and creative cases and accessories, today announces its distinction as an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the new RokBed Fuzion+ iPhone 4/4S case. Selected by a panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media, Rokform is an honoree for the second year in a row, previously named an honoree in the same category at CES 2012 for its now popular Rokbed v3 iPhone 4/4S case.
The Fuzion+ is the new and improved version of the original RokBed Fuzion case and now features an integrated magnetic mounting system. Designed, engineered and made in the USA, the Fuzion+ is machined from aircraft grade aluminum and offers ultimate, six-sided protection and unmatched style for the iPhone 4/4S.
Machined from a single billet of 6061 T-6 aluminum, the Fuzion+ offers a true precision fit without the bulkiness or weight that comes with other protective cases. The total weight is less than one ounce, and with an Integrated High Pull Rare Earth Magnet for mounting, the Fuzion+ can be mounted on any metallic surface for added convenience and functionality.
The Fuzion+ offers several key improvements over the original RokBed Fuzion, but with the same remarkable durability, which has survived drop tests equivalent to military standards, as well as being run over by a car. One new feature is the ability to be mounted to a car dash, or nearly any other surface, for a practical hands free experience with the addition of an optional magnetic mount accessory.
"We consider it an outstanding achievement to be a CES Innovations honoree, especially in the design and engineering category," said Jeff Whitten, Vice President of Rokform. "Rokform is always looking for ways to improve upon our products, creating the perfect blend of style, function and protection. A recognition like this validates that our hard work is paying off, resulting in the best possible products for our customers."
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, sponsors the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards, recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Rokform's Fuzion+ case for the iPhone 4/4S will be displayed in The Venetian at the 2013 International CES, January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay.
