Mitte smart healthy water system Mon, 30 Oct 2017 12:00:15 +0000 mitteThere are many different kinds of water purification systems out there in the market, with some of them even having special plates that will increase the alkaline count of the water, claiming to be able to play a role in alleviating certain illnesses and sickness. Mitte would like to jump aboard the water purification bandwagon, but offer a twist to the situation instead by being a smart healthy water system. In other words, it will make use of the distillation process to purify your water, but also offer customized mineral enhancements that ensures each cup of water you drink is healthy.

Tap water tends to carry its fair share of impurities and is not the best barometer for life giving water, while traditional water purification systems simply purify but do not enhance. Mitte will offer the best of everything, resulting in a mineralized and contaminant-free water wherever it is installed. Gaining inspiration from nature, Mitte will feature mineral cartridges that replicate the naturally occurring process whenever pure water flows through rocks at the source, picking up minerals as it flows. With Mitte, users have the option to personalize their daily drinking water via 3 different mineral cartridges that will carry varying levels of natural minerals and ingredients.

Right now available as a Kickstarter project, it can be yours for as low as a pledge of $234. This is definitely a new solution that will help to go up against a long term global issue: access to pure, healthy drinking water. The trio of mineral cartridges offered include Alkaline with a high pH level, a Balance cartridge that will add basic minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium so that a softer water with a neutral taste is created to deliver better tasting coffee or tea, while the Vitality cartridge offers a higher concentration of such basic minerals in addition to a dose of trace minerals like manganese, iron, selenium and zinc, targeting those who live an active lifestyle and would like to survive on a healthy diet. Each cartridge is able to produce 400 liters of pure and re-mineralized water.

Gamber-Johnson reveals trio of Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 docking stations Thu, 26 Oct 2017 12:00:44 +0000 gamber-johnsonWhen it comes to tablets, the general trend of this particular device has been on a downward spiral for quite some time already, but there is still a decent enough sized market to keep new models rolling out from time to time. It is useful for such tablets to feature a dock, since there are times when you simply want to stop working and relax, and watching a movie on a tablet is far more enjoyable than on a (relatively) tiny smartphone display. A docking station would then come in handy, and for Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 owners, Gamber-Johnson has come up with not one or two, but a trio of docking stations that have been specially designed in order to safely and securely mount the all new tablet.

These docking stations will also play nice with the other Gamber-Johnson range of mounting equipment, and are well known to specifically work in vehicles like police cars, ambulances, OTR trucks, utility trucks, and forklifts. The new collection of products will continue to underline support by the company for its Android initiative, ensuring affordable accessory solutions when it comes to rugged Android tablets. Niche market segments like transportation and logistics that tend to require more rugged devices compared to traditional commercial products will definitely benefit from this.

Three different versions are available for this docking system version: a lightweight and low-cost cradle, a fully loaded docking station with a USB port to power your keyboard or mouse, and a kit version that will also be able to replace your tablet’s battery. The Gamber-Johnson cradle version helps to keep things nice and simple, tipping the scales at a mere 0.46 lbs, it will let you access all the features while keeping the Tab Active2 safe.

While no pricing has been announced, all three will be available soon, having passed Gamber-Johnson’s extensive rugged environment standard, undergoing cycle testing for 30,000 times before being released to ensure the utmost level of quality.

Taechyon Septaer features a wraparound display Tue, 24 Oct 2017 13:00:24 +0000 taechyon-septaerNow here is a particular device that not many homes will have, and it is all too easy to free up some space in order to place the Septaer from Taechyon. After all, a normal lamp or electric-powered lantern is nothing to shout about, but with the Septaer, you get a full wraparound 360-degree display as well as a full 360-degree camera built inside, sporting a design that is guaranteed to see people ask questions on where to get one.

In fact, Taechyon’s Septaer will no doubt be an eye-catching centerpiece when it comes to family and home entertainment. Specially designed to be viewed from just about any side courtesy of its omni-directional display technology, it comes accompanied by large high-end speakers while allowing space for users to control the room ambiance and environmental lighting depending to a user’s mood. To get on with the program that incorporates AI (Artificial Intelligence), Septaer will also boast of existing smart speaker AI capabilities of an Alexa, Google Home or Cortana.

Not only that, users can also take advantage of Septaer-to-Septaer full room video conferencing ability, use it as an entertainment device, as well as share user-created interactive characters and content. There is no word on pricing, but it seems that the first Septaer shipments are set to kick off by summer next year.

Steve Favis, CTO of Taechyon Robotics Corporation, shared, “Instead of everyone staring at a TV or phone screen, users will be facing each other when interacting with the Septaer instead of looking away from each other. Modern games can be played as the centerpiece of the table like traditional board games. Other flat-screen devices seem to pull attention away from family interaction. I am hoping families facing each other interacting with a single device viewable from all sides will bring families closer together.”

G-Bike is the first carry-on style electric bicycle in the world Mon, 16 Oct 2017 20:00:28 +0000 g-bikeWhen it comes to bicycles to get around for the urban commuter, there are many different kinds of models to choose from. Many of us would settle for a regular two-wheeler with a fair number of gears in order to help us tackle the trickier uphill segments along the route. However, regular sized bicycles are normally not allowed to be carried on board trains, making end-to-end connectivity a wee bit more challenging. Portable bicycles or foldable ones, on the other hand, do not really offer the same kind of “kick” as a regular sized bicycle. Enter GreenWheel’s G-Bike, the first carry-on style electric bicycle in the world.

The G-Bike will boast of a sturdy, secure frame with a trio of folding points at the back wheel, mid body, and base of the handlebar stem. This special design will enable the bike to neatly collapse down to its carrier form, where you can then bring it with you right behind like an obedient puppy, or a luggage carry-on.

As for its technical specifications, they are rather impressive. Boasting of a long lasting battery life of up to 55 miles in range (this will also vary depending on the steepness of the slopes involved, among others), we love the incorporation of puncture resistant tires that feature an integrated puncture guard in order to deliver all-terrain access. The 36V 250W motor is able to provide significant torque and speed to handle any kind of slope, while the battery can be removed to recharge, taking a mere 4 hours to do so. There is also a high quality LCD display that showcases important details such as speed, distance, and battery life remaining, while Shimano Nexus Gears delivers easy riding with the feel of a 3-speed bike.

Expect the G-Bike to retail for $1,799 apiece if you are interested in going green in style.
