Smart Kitchen TV


Overview: Smart Kitchen TV is a concept design that merges LG Electronics’ smart TV and projector technology. It brings home the smart media technology that transforms a typical dead zone to a digital information and media hub.

  • Smart Kitchen TV provides a large TV screen with a minimal installation area.
  • It uses a small Pico projector module.
  • Its functional controls work with a motion-sensing camera and voice recognition technology.
  • The darker area beneath wall-hung kitchen cabinets is an ideal spot for projecting the screen.
  • The projector can rotate by 180 degrees, allowing the ‘screen’ to appear on various surfaces.

Smart Kitchen TV is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.

Attracto


Attracto21-940x530

Overview: Attracto is an innovative device for air cleaning that exploits electrostatic attraction to trap the dust on its surface and then clean it.

What’s This: We all know that one of the places dust accumulates more is on TV screens, PCs and electronic devices. This happens because electronic devices generate an electrostatic field that attracts the dust to the inside, thus making deposits on their surfaces.
Attracto exploits this problem and uses it to it advantage. The system is composed of a glass circular surface fixed to the wall that is loaded by induction thus generating an electrostatic field. On the surface slice two rotating blades that clean the glass once the dust is trapped. The system is controlled through the display in the centre of the device, through which you can change the intensity of the electrostatic field and the movement of the blades. The structure is easily removable to allow emptying when the tank is full.

The Push: The traditional air purifiers work through an air filtration system where a fan sucks the air from one side, filters it, expelling clean air out the other side. The problem with this system is that this movement of air can sometimes make the situation worse, as it sets in motion allergens that would otherwise remain stationary on surfaces. Attracto instead exploits the electromagnetic energy to attract allergens to itself, trapping them on the glass surface and then cleaning itself.

Air & Life

Overview: “Air & Life” accessory to purify the air, promotes the use of plants and helps to keep them alive generating water

What’s This: “Air & Life ” encourages and promotes green living by making use of the environment and technology to our advantage, using and encouraging the use of plants in our homes that are elements alive. According to studies by NASA, a plant can purify the air in our homes and offices protecting us from the negative effects of common toxins such as ammonia , formaldehyde and benzene. . Purification 100mt2 areas up with a silver 6 ” Using this to our advantage ; “Air & Life ” , the work of nature facilitates improving the purification process for mediantes purest air filters and processes , thereby expelling , plants purified air to complete the purification process that brings nature. “Air & Life ” , in turn , is able to condense the moisture in the air to form water and keep those plants alive. Channeling water into the root of the planta.También scans the whole household to determine levels of air pollution , purification process, moisture from different areas are installed one or more device

The Push: Helps prevent some diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic rhinitis, pulmonary hypertension, which purifies the environment can not, promotes the use of the environment, plants at home in a wide variety; continuously generated by water moisture for plants; to check the status of air pollution in the home, humidity and state of purification; by Main unit can control, turn on and turn off all attached units in different areas of the home.

Luna


Luna-1-940x530

Overview: Luna, a sphere flowing through clothes and textiles, as a magnet that attracts and collects all dirt particles.

What’s This: Luna is an electrostatic spherical washing machine. The idea consists not to put the clothes into a washing machine, but rather, the washing machine between the dirty clothes.

Luna is a metallic sphere, which loads within, a little dose of water. When the sphere is placed into the dirty textiles, creates a cloud of fine particles of steam electrostatically charged, which comes out through pores of the metal surface, wrapping and permeating all the tissues. Luna flows between clothes through vibrations and pulses that control their movements, to scrub and shake tissues, detect dirt foci and detach it. The metallic surface of the sphere acts as a magnet: electrostatically charged, attracts dirt particles impregnated with steam and sucks these towards the core of the sphere. Finally, Luna dries with hot air the residual damp in the tissues.

Luna simplifies and reinvents the fabric care and contributes to preserve the environment and its resources. Elegant, simple and sustainable.

The Push: Users increasingly aware of the care of the planet, will inhabit the world that we occupy. Families and reduced spaces, will form the future homes. Luna renews the fabric care experience, in a simple, elegant and sustainable way.
A sphere that reduces the consumption of water and energy, optimizes time and reduces the effort required in washing and fabric care, are the reasons why Luna will be part of the lives of the users of the future and of the transformation of the homes, in healthy homes.
