836 448 Jeremy Ko

“Too cold.  Too hot.  Just right.  Pour in your coffee or tea and fine-tune your temperature.  Ember keeps your beverage just right for hours.”

 

How does it work?

 

The world’s most advanced mug with the most simple day-to-day functionality.  The Ember mug makes sure your beverage is at the perfect temperature throughout the day, just the way you like it.  Using it is completely hassle free.  Simply pour your coffee, tea, or you favorite beverage into the Ember mug and it will ensure that it will never get cold, or anything below your standards.  The Ember mug uses a companion app in which you can easily change your preferred temperature to let the mug know what temperature you’d like to retain.  At roughly the size of a normal travel mug, the Ember can keep your beverage heated for up to 2 hours on the go, and even all day if kept on the charging dock.  The temperature of your beverage can be seen at the bottom of the Ember mug.  You never have to drink that nasty cup of lukewarm coffee ever again.

Ever feel like having to always research how long you need to cook your meal for?  Ever feel paranoid to check if your food has been overcooked?  The June Oven is your solution to these concerns!

The June Over is an intelligent countertop appliance that thinks like a computer, and cooks your food to perfection.  Using the oven is made easy.  With it’s built-in digital scale, simply pop your food into the oven, and it’ll recognize what you’re trying to cook, automatically adjust the cook time, and tell you exactly when your food is ready to be served.  Of course, this option can also be manually input into the machine via a beautiful LED touchscreen display on the outside of the oven door.

The HD camera inside the June Oven allows for users to watch the magic of your food come to life in real time.  No more going back and forth between the couch and your appliance to check if your food is ready,  you can view and record every thing that’s happening inside your oven on the June Oven companion app available for iOS.  And that’s not all the app does for you.  Every setting that you need to control on your oven can now be done on your phone or tablet.  Adjust the oven temperature, check the remaining cook time, view the temperature of your meat, stop cooking, even customizing your own alerts to let you choose what June tells you, and when.  Check in and control your oven from literally anywhere.

Along with it’s high tech food recognition system, the June Oven is implemented with carbon fiber heating elements which preheats faster and cooks 33% faster.  Not only does this mean you get to eat faster, you also get to eat better.  With dual adaptive convection fans, it responsively adjust speeds, eliminating cold spots and ensuring that your food comes out evenly cooked every time.

Sony FES Watch U – customize designs in a click

1024 468 Jeremy Ko

The FES Watch U is the second generation of e-paper technology watches launched by Sony last December.  Like the first FES, the Watch U isn’t a smartwatch, but rather a watch connected to an iOS app (Android available later), in which you’ll be able to changed the design of the watch face as well as the bracelet with a simple click of a button.

fes-watch-u-black

The FES Watch U comes in two models, the premium black steel with black detailing, and the silver case with white detailing.  Both of these models come with a storage space for 24 different designs, all at your disposal.  There’s no need to open the app to switch designs, just a simple click of a button on the watch itself and it will be changed automatically.

fes-watch-u-white

The FES Watch U premium black will cost around €600 and the white version will sit around €500.  Just like it’s predecessor, the Watch U can only be found in Japan.  Hopefully, Sony will have plans to launch this brilliant design globally sometime in 2017.

Aerix Duet – Hong Kong launch

1024 593 Jeremy Ko

Aerix unveils Duet – an architectural stunner and high-specification sound system

  

Hong Kong, Dec. 2, 2016 – Aerix introduces Duet, an innovative high-specification, all-in-one sound system, complete with integrated CD player as well as wireless music streaming compatibility. Using cutting-edge technology, Duet creates an immersive ‘360 degree’ audio atmosphere — no matter where you are in the room.

The Duet design houses two high-end specification horns above and below, one for high notes and another for bass. When paired with powerful, vertical-firing drivers and tweeters, pushing sound waves outward, evenly in a 360 degrees halo. The system incorporates two minimalist cubes – each features aluminium plating with flawless finish – which sit on top of a matted chrome plate, delivering stand-out visuals. Duet integrates the latest DTS Play-Fi module and advanced Bluetooth, letting you play from various sources, such as Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, Tidal, Songza, and many more.

“Duet is a masterpiece of acoustics engineering and enduring elegance/design/simplicity. It breaks through the constraints that have always limited stand-alone speakers,” says Jimmy Chang, co-founder of Aerix and creator of Duet, “40 years and three generations of building premium hi-fi sound systems have culminated in this creation. When it plays, music fills every inch of the atmosphere. Duet has taken existing options of stand-alone speakers to the next level.”

Technology

Atmospheric Surround Sound

Duet is uniquely engineered to make listening to music an immersive experience; its advanced tuning technology revolutionizes how machines deliver sound. Whereas the optimum sound range of traditional all-in-one systems is 45 degrees at best, Duet delivers amazing sound at 360 degrees, saturating every corner of the room with what its maker calls an “Atmosphere of Sound” or “Aerix”.

Hyper Intelligent Sound for Humans

Our advanced DSP chips are optimised with exclusive VIS technology, the latest in human auditory psychoacoustics, and include three built-in modes: Relax, Natural, or Hyper. Each setting is precisely engineered to deliver nothing less than the most premium listening experience.

Dynamic Sound Wave Drivers

Music should sound alive. Duet does this, fully absorbing its audience and their auditory senses with sound so real that it feels alive. Powerful vertical-firing drivers compress airwaves downward to the specially designed panel at the bottom of each unit, extending sound evenly and consistently, every time, everywhere.

State of the Art Components

Duet’s high-specification components set itself apart from stand-alone stereos that came before now. Aerix insists on the highest standard for even hidden details, making an audible difference between regular and spectacular sound.

  •   1.5-inch transducer
  •   circular horn diffuser
  •   double magnetic rounded subwoofer
  •   bell-curved horned and a conical base for precise bass reflection

Design

The Humble Cube

An international team from Switzerland, France, Germany, and Taiwan designed Duet. This design collective shared a vision for creating a product that is at once simple and sophisticated, that can stand the test of changing fashion and grow old with us. The humble cube reflects these values with its classic lines, clean edges, and precise design details.

Muted Light Signals

Listeners should be able to experience of music without distractions, which is why Duet’s LED light display, for navigating functional settings, is only as attention-grabbing as it needs to be—muted and hidden behind a layer of mesh aluminium.
