Specim wins internationally recognized design award with its new Specim IQ camera. The winning design was created in co-operation with Haltian Inc. and Mikael Heikkilä from Caasi Design. Judges particularly valued the device’s innovation and high-quality design.
It was clear from the beginning that the Specim IQ design focus had to be on usability. Complicated information gathering and processing were to be hidden behind an easy-to-use graphic interface so that the user would get immediate results without knowledge of advanced mathematics. The design was created together with Haltian Inc., a company with experience on similar projects.

Red Dot design award is a clear indication that we have made the right choice. This is the first time the coveted award has been given to a hyperspectral imaging device. “High tech devices can rarely take pride in their usability or design. We know hyperspectral imaging; now we wanted to wrap that knowledge into a more user-friendly package,” says Harri Salo, leader of the Specim IQ project. “At the same time, we want to make hyperspectral imaging technology available to more people.”
