If you're not familiar with Project CSX (Crowd Sourced X), it's the project where consumers lead every aspect of the development process of a new mobile device. In late 2016, the idea and concept of a truly, hands-free phone, was ultimately voted on by consumers as the Project CSX device to build in 2017. Two key features differentiate this phone to make it hands-free: 1) a scrolling feature that detects eye motion to read pages, without the need to use thumbs and fingers to scroll, and 2) an adhesive backing that allows a phone to be mounted to vertical surfaces to read. Thousands of consumers from 176 countries voted on Project CSX and helped to select the features and design.
Here at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) today, we've announced the winner of the brand name competition. More than 500 names were submitted as potential candidates and a final name was selected and announced. Also at CES, we've showed off an early design prototype of the phone. We also put it on a popular crowd-funding site to allow consumers who are interested in early access to the phone. Details about our announcements at CES are posted on our project site at http://csx.zteusa.com.
