‘Evapolar’ personal air-conditioner
Ever wondered what it is like to have your own personal cooling system right by your side all day and night? Among the thousands of portable air-purifiers out there in the market today, there is truly one product that can claim to be the world’s first true personal air-conditioner. It ideally cools, ventilates, humidifies and purifies the air creating a perfect microclimate within your workplace. Based upon specially developed patented nanotechnology, it is both small and efficient; emulates a gentle breeze which enables air circulation and induces atmospheric ventilation. The Evapolar in essence contains no toxic or harmful coolants which make it eco-friendly. It also principally works on harnessing the power of water evaporation – an ancient cooling technology that has in existence throughout the ages. Most conventional evaporative coolers are typically bulky devices which are not quite portable or mobile-friendly. Unlike traditional air-cons which deliver a blanket burst of cold air without adjusting to bodily needs – resulting in a weakened immune system, Evapolar’s gentle breeze effectively cools down the body naturally without debilitating colds or negative health repercussions. Its compact and portable design is also a lovely sight to behold, and delivers a welcoming and refreshing coolness to any room. Evapolar retails online at an introductory price of USD179, with an additional USD20 for the water cartridge.
‘The Right Cup’ fruit-flavoured cup
We are constantly reminded of how important it is to drink more fluids, especially water. However, plain water on its own presents a real challenge for the health-conscious who find it quite mundane and cumbersome to gulp down bland and tasteless water without any flavouring. Now there is a unique solution in a cup that literally changes the way we drink water. If you are fancy sweet drinks, The Right Cup helps you enjoy fruity flavours without the adverse health effects of excessive sugar. It is essentially a glass cup with a special scented inner lining or coating which tricks us into thinking we are actually drinking fruit-infused water. This is fundamentally beneficial for curbing cravings for sweetened water, which translates to long-term health benefits. Moreover, some eighty percent of perceived flavours from our food and drinks originate from smell alone. The Right Cup consists of a novel and proprietary food-grade material called Encapsulated Aroma Release (EAR) that lines the inner cup. As the cup is filled to the brim with water and held closely to our mouths, unique fruit scents are automatically released, and they are immediately detected by our nasal olfactory or sense of smell. The nose naturally interprets this water as being fruity, thus, the brain is literally fooled into thinking it is fruit-flavoured water. A single Right Cup typically lasts for about six months before the flavour contained within the cup becomes diluted or requires replenishing. Storing the cup upside down helps reactivate its food-grade scents for longer periods or duration before needing replacement cups. During its initial public release, The Right Cup is offered for sale at USD35 per unit. Several popular and classic flavours to choose from include timeless favourites such as Lemon Lime, Sunny Orange, Mixed Berry and Zesty Apple.
