After all, dishes are not going to get cleaned all by themselves, are they? Using the old fashioned method of a sponge and some soap with warm water seems to be the most economical way of getting the job done, but busy folks might find the dishwasher to be a welcome addition in their home. However, which would be the best dishwasher out there? LG intends to help the home out with their latest range of QuadWash dishwashers that claim to offer consumers more power to handle dirty dishes.

The new range of LG QuadWash dishwashers comprise of 14 new models, and guess what?

With LG’s QuadWash technology, it will set a brand new standard for dishwashers as it places maximum cleaning in motion with four spray arms rather than two. The Multi-Motion arms will be able to sweep and rotate back and forth, all the while spinning in both directions in order to clean dishes, glassware, flatware, and cookware regardless of the angle. Each will arrive equipped with high-pressure jets to power-clean dishes, and there are up to nine pre-set wash cycles to choose from, including the option to download more cycles through the LG SmartThinQ app for consumers to be able to customize their loads for optimal cleaning performance.

There is enough room within for up to 15 place settings of dishes within the dishwasher’s spacious, stainless steel interior, so feel free to increase your guest list.

New Blackjack watch is a beauty to behold Wed, 19 Jul 2017 12:00:23 +0000 timex-blackjackTimepieces are more of a fashion accessory these days than a tool that we use to tell the time. Sure, watches are useful to wear, but the traditional time telling method has been more or less made obsolete in the cities and urban areas thanks to our smartphones and computers that provide a constant reminder on what time it is. However, there is still room for watches, as smartwatches have proven that it is not going to phase out the old school timepieces, which is why we are excited to bring the Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch to the consciousness of everyone else.

Sporting a stealthy and sophisticated look, the all new Blackjack Watch from Todd Snyder and Timex has been inspired by a sporty 1970s style from the Timex archives. Of course, since we are in the new millennium and are about to call the second decade to a close, it has been updated in a modern blackout palette. This timepiece does have an edgy look to it, being the latest in an ongoing collaboration between the celebrated menswear designer and the iconic American watch brand. In fact, the Blackjack watch would pay homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s.

Sporting speed dials and roulette wheels, the Blackjack evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury Monaco casinos, all encapsulated in a sleek New York style. The Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch will borrow distinctive details from that archival original, where there will be urbane updates in the form of a black finished case as well as a military inspired nylon strap. Looking good is not the only thing, as it has to function well, which is why it comes with features such as 50 meter water resistance and quartz movement.

The Blackjack Watch will retail for $138 apiece and is extremely versatile to be used regardless of the environment you are in.

Tertill is a weed-killing robot Fri, 14 Jul 2017 12:00:46 +0000 tertillWeeds are the bane of any garden. They are so easy to grow and spread, and are extremely hardy. In fact, weeds are more or less useless, being more of a curse on the ground than anything else. However, just like life, we have to contend with the likes of weeds in order to make sure that anything that is worth attaining such as a good and rich harvest deserves to have hard work put in. If you have a reasonably large yard that you would like to protect against weeds using the natural way, how about considering the Tertill weed-killing robot? This is like a robotic vacuum cleaner, except for the garden.

The Tertill is a solar-powered gardening robot that is ready to ship after being a successful Kickstarter project. It tips the scales at 2.5 pounds, as this disk-shaped robot will go about patrolling the garden while it intelligently identifies and whacks all unwanted plants in the vicinity. How does it do so? Magic is not involved, but technology. Tertill makes use of unique design elements as well as a range of sensors in order to patrol the garden daily, as it goes about avoiding plants and obstacles, while looking for weeds to eliminate.

It uses this algorithm to figure out which are weeds and which are your precious plants: weeds are short, plants are tall. Any plant that is tall enough to touch the front of Tertill’s shell will then activate a sensor which will see the robot turn away. If a plant happens to be short enough to pass under the shell, then it will activate a different sensor by turning on the weed cutter. Fret not though, for your young seedlings, there will be protective collars included with each purchase that you can place around short plants and seedlings so that Tertill will avoid them until they are tall enough.

A spinning string trimmer will be in charge of all weed cutting activities, and since it looks for weeds each day, you can be sure that there will be no long weed problems to worry about. Since it is 100 percent solar-powered, this Bluetooth-connected robot will get to work without you worrying about charging it up.

Airdog reveals the ADII camera drone Thu, 13 Jul 2017 13:00:55 +0000 adiiDo you love capturing video of other people in action? If you are a particularly active person yourself, then you would also know that you would do well to capture yourself in action. If you have a partner or friend to tag along with you, that is fine and dandy, but what happens when you end up with no one to follow you on your adventures? This is where Airdog’s latest camera drone comes in handy, the ADII.

Available as a Kickstarter campaign, the Airdog ADII is deemed to be the first high-performance, auto-follow camera drone in the world. This autonomous machine is available as a Kickstarter exclusive, with production units being ready to rock and roll in time for an August delivery. Based on high-performance elements that are found in the original model, the ADII will set a brand new industry standard that merges advanced intelligent tracking technology alongside durable design and the most cutting-edge autonomous, all-terrain flight performance that can be found in the market at the moment.

The ADII happens to be the only camera drone on the market right now that has been specially built for hands-free from the ground up. It does away with the need for manned operation, hence ensuring the user would be able to enjoy complete active freedom with perfect content capture. There is the ability to set customizable flight trajectories so that more dynamic angles can be achieved alongside obstacle avoidance, while the presence of scenic-capture modes ensure unique filming perspectives.

With a pro-grade camera stabilization and auto-record system, users are more or less guaranteed smooth, framed, professional-grade footage despite being in the midst of the most challenging elements. It does not matter whether it comes up against issues such as high speeds, wind, water, and abrupt elevation and terrain changes, the ADII is up for all of it.

Paby reveals new smart pet location and activity tracker Thu, 13 Jul 2017 12:00:03 +0000 pabyIf you happen to treat your pet like your very own furkid, I am quite sure that you would also be very concerned about its whereabouts whenever you are not around. After all, not all pets are happy enough to sit around the house doing nothing all day long, just to wait for you to come back. Some pets have this extremely curious personality and would not mind zipping away in an instant just so that it can spend some time outdoors. Paby knows this, and would like to help alleviate any anxiety that you might have through the availability of its smart pet location and activity tracker.

This smart device is waterproof (obviously) and small enough to be attached to collars and harnesses without missing a beat, boasting of features such as GPS navigation, LBS and wireless capability in order to deliver real-time activity/wellness tracking to pet owners. This is to provide pet owners with peace of mind whenever they are not around, and with it functioning as a standalone device, users are able to set up “virtual fences” using their smartphones in order to receive real-time alerts when their pets leave the designated “zone.”

Apart from that, there is a durable band that is able to fit any sized collar from small to large, while the activity tracker doubles up as a pedometer for pets — figuring out the number of steps that you pet takes, to the amount of calories burned, sleep patterns observed, and intensity of their play time. With an asking price of $79.99 apiece, Paby will be available in different fun colors and patterns to suit just about all of the different pet owners out there. There is also an RGB LED flashing light that is thrown in for additional pet safety, alongside a high fidelity waterproof speaker which will play a sound to alert the user over the mobile app whenever their pet is close by.

Nuguna Neckband is an environmental awareness device Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:00:59 +0000 nugunaNow here is a wearable device that will certainly change the way you view things — the Nuguna Neckband. This is no ordinary piece of neckband, but rather, it is an environmental awareness device that could very well be the first of its kind. The Nuguna Neckband has already surpassed its Kickstarter funding goal, and is more than ready to meet whatever orders that come its way. Specially designed for those who have hearing loss, the Nuguna Neckband is a device that is worn around the neck. Whenever there is a high-pitched sound that happens around the wearer, the device will alert them to the sound’s direction.

The whole idea of the Nuguna Neckband is to make the world a better place. Ergonomically designed and lightweight in nature, the Nuguna Neckband will sit comfortably around the neck even when worn for long periods of time. This is a far more attractive proposition to those who do not use a hearing aid, and yet want to continue to remain alert through the device’s sound detection and vibration signals.

There are two models of the Nuguna Neckband to choose from. The first is the Nuguna Neckband Off, or NNF-001, where it can detect high pitched sounds while alerting the wearer to their directions. The second is the Nuguna Neckband On, model number NNO-001, where it will work in tandem with a mobile application. This mobile app will allow the user to easily change it vibration configurations, receive alerts of phone calls, social media notifications, and even set an alarm clock using the device’s vibrations.

Apart from that, the Nuguna Neckband On can also be used on its own to independently detect sounds should the app be turned off, or when there is no available connection. Apart from that, the Nuguna Neckband On can even receive natural disaster alerts (earthquakes, tornadoes and others) depending on information provided by the USGS (United States Geological Survey). Pretty neat, right?
