Dyson Air Multiplier

September 8, 2010

The Dyson Air Multiplier fan works very differently to conventional fans. It uses Air Multiplier technology to draw in air and amplify it 15 times, producing an uninterrupted stream of smooth air. The advantage to this design is that you don’t have to worry about kids sticking their fingers into the fan and cleaning is as simple as wiping the ring with a piece of cloth.
The Air Multiplier comes in three sizes. The 25cm and 30cm Table version AM01, available now in Singapore, costs SGD399 (USD297.14) and SGD429 (USD319.48), respectively. The former is available in iron/blue shades while the larger fan comes in white/silver and silver/iron colors. The bigger Tower AM02 and Pedestal AM03 versions which will set you back SGD699 (USD520.55).

Hauzen resembles a giant dust mite magnified a million times over. Using cameras to automatically map the room in 3D to be cleaned, it has enough built-in smarts to avoid obstacles and return to base to juice up when the power guage starts to dip. Same as any other robot vac but prettier…

Dulux PaintPod

February 21, 2008

Dulux PaintPod is a device that pumps paint directly to a roller attachment. Hit a button and the PaintPod loads its roller with the correct amount of paint. And it even cleans itself up when you’ve finished decorating, taking ten minutes to rinse all the paint out of its system. It does require its own 5-litre paint packs, as they’re formulated to just the right consistency to work with the pumping system.

The consumer version doesn’t need to be installed in a wall and doesn’t need to be professionally installed by someone.

The concept is the same: a strip allows you to modularly plug in a bunch of gadgets. Each plug slides up and down the strip so you can position it the way you want. You can even remove plugs if you don’t need so many. Eubiq has a safety feature on each of them that makes it so you can shove your finger inside as much as you want and not be electrocuted. The plug needs to go in and twist to make contact with the sides of the track to reach the live wire (your finger will only hit ground).

Vacuum Broom

Vacuums are great at picking up fine dust but suck horribly at bigger pieces of trash. Brooms are great at moving big pieces of litter but forget about dirt. Combine the 2 and it makes so much sense.

Flexible Distance is a top loading washing machine with emphasis on pure style. The idea is for this machine to be decorative in the housebut the real innovation here is the interface.

All the controls are located on the outer ring of the wash well. You simply touch the setting you want and close the lid. You can monitor the progress of your wash on the LCD screen on top of the lid.
Didn’t mention the water and power inlet though…

 If you don’t mind being chained to your desk, this might help evaporate a modicum of sweat in even the steamiest of situations. A rechargable battery will be better… but anyway, why bother… just get a proper fan!
