Household appliances have evolved dramatically since the 90s thanks to the advent of technology. Corded machines are now cordless and analogue televisions have been taken over by smart televisions. These days, we can’t live without these newfangled inventions because they make life a lot easier, which is probably why we are constantly on the hunt for the latest and most advanced gadgets out there. Here are several innovative products that you would want to have in your home.
In an effort to make television more inconspicuous, manufacturers have been racing to create even slimmer screens. But LG is redefining it with the introduction of the world’s first rollable OLED TV. The 65-inch display rises up and rolls up at a touch of a button, offering three viewing options. The Full View delivers large-screen viewing experience while the Line View offers partial viewing that displays features such as Clock, Frame and Music. In Zero View, the screen fully tucks into the base, but music and other audio content can still be enjoyed from its front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system. This ultimately liberates users from the limitations of the wall and freeing them to curate their own personal space, which no longer needs to be reserved full time for TV viewing.
ECOVAVS WINBOT X makes cleaning windows a breeze because it does the job for you. Its cordless design enables it to move freely and intelligently on different types of window, and reach areas previously unreachable or unsafe for you. Thanks to edge detection technology, the robot knows when to stop cleaning and won’t fall to its death. It also sends out a safety warning when the air pressure within the suction cup is too low and stays on the window for an extra 30 minutes after its 50-minute battery life ends. Equipped with a Deep Clean Mode and a four-stage cleaning process, WINBOT X is one of the many innovative products you should have in your cleaning arsenal. Available at Harvey Norman, Best Denki, Hachi.tech and ECOVACS online brand stores on Lazada.sg and Qoo10.sg.
Composed of a fully integrated, built-in modular range of refrigerators, freezers, fridge-freezers and wine-climate cabinets, Gaggenau’s new Vario cooling 400 series makes an architectural statement in the kitchen. But what makes these innovative products great is the opening assist system that opens the appliances for you by simply giving them a light push. Even the refrigerator door’s ice and water dispenser activates the light and touch keys automatically as you approach. The stainless steel interior houses a near invisible rail system for flexible positioning of the glass shelves and door racks. You’ll be thrilled to know that the shelves are motorised and can be adjusted even when fully loaded. Available at Gaggenau Experience Centre.
Launched just yesterday, this revolutionary task light by Dyson is engineered to support your body clock with local daylight tracking that continually adjusts colour temperature and brightness in relation to your local daylight, making it one of the most innovative products of recent years. It also intelligent adjusts for age task and daily routine with the Dyson Link app. Emitting over 1,000 Lux brightness, glare, eye strain and optical flicker are a thing of the past. Not to mention, light quality is maintained for 60 years (based on eight hours of usage a day) thanks to Heat Pipe technology. A gentle touch of the arm precisely positions the light vertically, horizontally and through 360 degrees without the need for springs or pivots to hold the light in place. The arm is also reversible and there’s even an on-board USB-C port for charging devices. Available as desk and floor variants in white/silver and black from July 2019 on shop.dyson.com.sg and major departmental and electrical stores.
