Coolest Gadgets » Electronic Gadgets Playing with cool gadgets in the ongoing search for the Coolest Gadget Mon, 22 Jan 2018 12:00:12 +0000 en-US hourly 1 AIcorrect Translator makes communication a snap Mon, 22 Jan 2018 12:00:12 +0000

If there was one particular superpower that I would love to have, it would be the ability to be able to decipher and understand all languages. It makes communication far easier, and it will certainly be a bridge among different people groups and tribes. While the science fiction utopia of having a form of AI (Artificial Intelligence) handle all of our different languages and dialect nuances remains just that, the AIcorrect Translator might be on to something with its debut at the recently concluded CES 2018.

The AIcorrect Translator is truly special in the sense that it supports real-time mutual voice translation between Chinese/English, not to mention another 30 different languages. Chinese is notoriously difficult to master, where a single character has multiple meanings based on the intonation used, and machine translation like Google Translate have not yet achieved a kind of understandable and decent degree of translation to date.

The AIcorrect Translator will work around issues and challenges faced in cross-linguistic communication. With real-time mutual translation support in multiple situations between Chinese/English and other languages such as Japanese, Korean, Thai, French, Russian and Spanish, it claims to achieve a translation quality that is as high as 96%. The device itself comes with a touch screen, and both transcription and translation will be displayed simultaneously. When there are up to a quartet of devices hooked up, AIcorrect Translator supports conversation in up to four different languages, now how about that for amazing?

We do hope that the AIcorrect Translator will be able to have the battery life that can last for an entire working day, as we slowly but surely approach the moment when everyone is able to understand one another perfectly well without having to learn the language from scratch. Some might say it will make us lazy, but others on the opposite end of the spectrum will call it efficiency in doing things at the highest level.

ILIFE reveals the A8 robotic vacuum Sat, 20 Jan 2018 12:00:42 +0000 ILIFE_A8When it comes to maintaining the cleanliness of a home or office, there is plenty of work to be done. In fact, if the amount of space in the area is huge, it can feel as though the task has amplified. ILIFE figured out that homemakers and virtually anyone else who is too busy to clean the home can always receive a little bit of additional assistance in the form of the A8 robotic vacuum cleaner. This is a flagship model from the manufacturer, where the all-new A8 robot vacuum will arrive equipped with a 360 degree live-vision camera navigation system.

It also looks great from the get go, and will continue on a trajectory where robotic vacuum cleaners end up as something that is worth investing in. After all, many of us are already too pooped from our everyday work and stress at the office, that it can become really, really difficult and challenging to return home and attend to chores. Boasting of an aesthetic design and superior automation, the A8 self-navigating robot vacuum is enabled by PanoView. This allows it to navigate spaces precisely with a high-definition camera, where all of the information gathered will be processed through a trio of integrated data chips and CV-SLAM graphics algorithm which works great for mapping and route planning.

It will also be assisted by a three-stage cleaning system, enabling the A8 to clean along the planned route without having to miss out on or to repeat cleaning in other areas. There is also a pause/resume navigation system, which will allow the A8 to automatically return to its charging base each time the battery starts to run low on juice, and resume cleaning when its task was interrupted. In other words, this is one autonomous large room cleaner that will boast of a voice alert system so that it delivers real-time status announcements. Measuring all of just 7.2cm thin, this form factor enables the A8 to easily scoot under beds and sofas in order to get rid of dust bunnies and other hard-to-reach areas.

However, Scosche has had a pretty decent track record in the past with its offerings, and recently lifted the veil up from the all-new BoomBottle MM. The BoomBottle MM continues from the ideology of its predecessor, with a portable and cylindrical design being the base design, while offering sought after features and arriving in a refined shape. Not only that, Scosche has thrown in additional functionality and exceptional sound quality, offering an alternative option to active lifestyle consumers where Bluetooth speakers are concerned.

Knowing that sound quality is always something that any serious sound enthusiast takes into consideration before making a purchase, the all-new BoomBottle MM will arrive with not one, but a couple of six-watt speakers as well as a pair of 40mm passive radiators.

Phyn Plus smart water assistant Sun, 14 Jan 2018 19:00:32 +0000 Phyn_PlusIf you are going to kit out your house to turn it into some sort of smart home, why not go the whole nine yards and make sure it ends up with a smart kitchen as well? I am quite sure that there is a fair number of electrical appliances in the kitchen that are capable of working alongside Alexa, the digital voice assistant, so why not add another member into the mix with the Phyn Plus smart water assistant?

Working with notable names such as Belkin International and Uponor, the Phyn Plus is best described to be a smart water monitoring system that works to protect families and their homes from leak damage, boasting of unmatched accuracy and reliability. With the Phyn Plus, homeowners will be alerted to leaks and water damage far earlier than the usual days or weeks after it has begun, where the latter would then incur plenty of cost and could even throw a pall over the entire household. With the Phyn Plus, it will begin to monitor and measure any small fluctuations in water pressure in order to detect and alert homeowners the moment a leak is identified right after it has been installed.

This will help to mitigate costly damage via an automatic shut off, and it gives you an opportunity to diagnose potential problems in plumbing systems even before they end up as an issue of sorts. The HD Pressure Sensing feature in Phyn Plus will be able to measure micro changes in pressure at a rate of up to 240 times a second, allowing it to fingerprint the unique signatures of each fixture while catching a variety of plumbing issues which range from the smallest pinhole leaks to faucet drips and frozen pipes.

Those who are interested in picking up the Phyn Plus will be able to do so later this spring for $850 a pop via the Uponor Pro Squad.

Fisker’s EMotion makes its mark with new solid state battery Sat, 13 Jan 2018 12:00:01 +0000 fisker-emotionAn electric car is not something that all of us are able to afford, although some of us do dream of driving up in a Tesla that offers exceptional acceleration performance with looks that could kill. However, if there is one thing about electric cars that continue to invoke doubt in motorheads, it would be the battery life. Most electric vehicles have to “suffer” from limited range and long charging times (relatively speaking) as opposed to a petrol or diesel-powered ride. Fisker would like to turn such conceptions upside down with their modern day marvel, the EMotion that will be powered by the patent-pending Fisker Flexible Solid-State Battery.
What makes the Fisker EMotion so special? Well, apart from its stunning looks and performance capabilities, it will run on the Fisker Flexible solid-state battery that is capable of delivering 2.5 times the energy density of lithium-ion batteries, hence allowing it to achieve a maximum range of up to 400 miles on a full charge. Even better yet is the fact that it can take less than a minute to power up the battery, making it faster to “fuel up” so to speak compared to the traditional petrol-powered ride.

With an estimated top speed of 161 mph, the Fisker EMotion is no slouch, and this all-wheel drive with 24″ low rolling resistant Pirelli tires is set to blaze new trails. We love the fact that this is a level 4 autonomous driving vehicle, and it is also smart enough to have the doors open and close through a smartphone. On the outside, there are unmovable flush touch handles which will be illuminated, making it more advanced that seemingly standard issue keyless entry models.

For passenger comfort, there are inductive charging ports and special holders for up to a quartet of smartphones to keep up with the times, and to cap it all off, it has four individual, electric adjustable seats that will wrap passengers in ultra soft leather. Hopefully we can see this roll out sooner rather than later, and will keep a keen eye open for the price.
