'Best in Show' Awards Unveiled at CES

The 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show doesn't begin in earnest until Thursday morning. But Las Vegas is already running at full tilt with press conferences, big announcements, and even a number of items that have been awarded "Best in Show" honors.

The press Tuesday was shown a number of very special items to be displayed at the show. They are the honorees for the Innovations Design and Engineering Awards which are selected by a panel of independent industry designers, engineers and journalists.

The awards run the gamut from auto accessories, audio components, computer hardware and peripherals to eco design and sustainable technologies, health and wellness, integrated home systems, portable power and even video displays. We got to get close-up looks at some of the winners.

Lenovo ThinkPad USB Portable Secure Hard Drive:

Optimized for safeguarding essential data while on-the-go, the Lenovo ThinkPad USB Portable Secure Hard Drive offers high-level 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard security within a slim and easy-to-use design. You can plug it into any computer, but until you punch in your password your computer won't even know it's there.

HP TouchSmart Desktop PC:

It's a next-generation, touch-enabled all-in-one desktop PC that combines a 22-inch high-definition widescreen with a powerful energy efficient processor and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report) TouchSmart software that is optimized for touch interactions. Actually using it is even cooler than it sounds.

Sony Cyber-Shot t700 Digital Camera:

The 10-megapixel camera acts like a portable photo album in your pocket with its 4GB of internal memory that can store nearly 1,000 full-resolution or 40,000 VGA photos. It comes in five pretty colors too.
