Shiozaki Design Creates Award Winning Product

Intel awards $500,000 to Nixie


Shiozaki Design was part of the Grand Prize Team Nixie, which won the Intel Make It Wearable challenge.  Chosen from ten finalists, Nixie won the $500,000 grand prize.  Nixie is the first flyable and wearable camera, using Intel new low powered Edition chip and is generating excitement among outdoor adventure enthusiasts, multimedia producers, athletes and many others.

Shiozaki Design created the industrial design of the futuristic device and the presentation display used in front of ten judges. The judges included the CEOs of Intel and Best Buy, professional tennis player and fashion designer Venus Williams, and top from consumer electronics, retail and fashion executives.


Nixie is worn on the user’s wrist and quickly unfolds and forms into a quad-copter.  Takes flight on cue, captures pictures or video from unique vantage points then comes back to the user after a specified time.
