Acer Wins 12 iF Design Awards 2018

Acer today announces that it has been honored with 12 iF Design Awards 2018 in recognition for design excellence. Among them, Predator gaming device, software and packaging designs led the way for Acer with six awards including the Predator Orion 9000 desktop, Predator Triton 700 notebook, Predator X27 monitor, Predator X34P monitor, as well as PredatorSenseTM software and Predator Gaming Gadget packaging design. The other award winners from Acer include the Acer Swift 7 notebook, Aspire S 24 all-in-one desktop, VG0 series gaming monitor, Holo360 and Vision360 cameras, and Pawbo Wagtag pet tracker.

“We are delighted to be taking home 12 iF Design Awards as it recognizes the outstanding capabilities and work of our colleagues in Industrial Design and Research & Development to ensure the synergy of form and functionality,” said Tiffany Huang, President of Corporate Marketing, Business Planning and Operations at Acer. “In addition, our results this year hold special significance for us as it is the first time designs pertaining to Predator gaming devices have led the way for Acer with six awards.”

Predator Orion 9000 Gaming Desktop

The commanding aesthetics of the Predator Orion 9000 series feature a black-and-silver spacecraft-like exterior with customizable RGB lighting along the sides of the front bezel. A massive side window panel showcases the striking and powerful interior with a design that keeps electromagnetic interference (EMI) levels in check despite the size of the opening.

Predator Triton 700 Gaming Notebook

The notebook’s svelte 18.9 mm (.74 inch), 2.6kg (5.7 pound) aluminum chassis houses a 15.6- inch FHD IPS display and best-in-class computing technologies for just the right balance of size and performance without sacrificing thermals, features or rigidity. Its understated black chassis features a minimalist design, with straight contours and angular front corners.

Predator X27 Gaming Monitor

The Predator X27 portrays astonishingly vibrant visuals without motion blur thanks to a high 4K (3840x2160) resolution at a 144 Hz refresh rate, a fast 4 ms response time and a 1,000 nit peak brightness with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology. The chiseled diamond cut, all-metal stand is designed to be very robust to provide stability and ergonomic with adjustable tilt, swivel and height.

Predator X34P Gaming Monitor

Gamers will take in the full view with the Predator X34 series monitor via its curved, panoramic 1900R view and ZeroFrameTM design, which rids the display of a bulky bezel for more viewable screen and less obtrusive borders. Gamers, big or small, will be able to easily find their viewing sweet spot with its ergonomic design featuring tilt, swivel and height adjustment.

PredatorSenseTM

PredatorSense software enables gamers to control and optimize their Predator devices from one central interface, including CPU and GPU usage, as well as customize their system for optimal gaming performance such as defining hotkeys, initiating overclocking as well as adjusting keyboard backlight and accent light settings, and fan speed among others.

Predator Gaming Gadget Packaging

Predator Gadget products utilize a hexagonal geometric structure for packaging. This approach synergizes with the essence of the Predator brand and further delivers in areas of consistency, sophistication and brand expression. Beyond aesthetics and protection of the product, some of the packaging feature added functionality, for example the packaging of the Predator Galea 500 headset can be used as a headset mount.

Acer Swift 7

At just 8.98 mm thin, the new Swift 7 is an always-connected PC running Windows 10 that’s designed for mobility. The Acer Swift 7’s unmatched slim design is only the beginning of the features on offer. Blazing-fast, built-in Intel® XMMTM 4G LTE connectivity keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand.

Acer Aspire S 24

The Aspire S 24 all-in-one desktop PC is Acer’s slimmest ever, featuring a display with a side profile of only 5.97 mm. The borderless display with black and matte gold color scheme ensures that the device will become a focal point of any home, adding a touch of functional elegance and luxury.

Acer VG0 Gaming Monitor

The Acer VG0 monitor is an entry-level gaming monitor that doesn’t compromise on color accuracy. Equipped with In-Plane Switching technology, VG0 series monitors provide high color accuracy, delivering the best all-round experience for work and play. It supports refresh rates up to 144Hz and Visual Response Boost technology (VRB), which achieves the effect of 1 ms MPRT for clear, blur-free visuals.

Acer 360-Degree Cameras and Pet Tracker

The Acer Holo360 camera combines the power to stitch videos in real-time, integrated LTE connectivity, and a 3-inch touchscreen for operation, to provide an all-in-one solution for shooting and livestreaming 360-degree videos. The Acer Vision360 is an in-car camera that captures 360-degree video to ensure that nothing is missed when a traffic incident occurs. The Pawbo Wagtag provides real-time tracking of pets for both indoors and outdoors, and sports unique features such as bark detection.

The iF Design Award is organized by the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH. The 63-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, judged over 6,400 entries from 54 countries vying to receive the seal of quality.

If You’re a New Homeowner, This Checklist Is for You

If You’re a New Homeowner, This Checklist Is for You

Buying a place to call your own is a huge achievement but let’s be real; your journey to settling in is far from over. We’ve decided to make your life easier by compiling the 5 things you need to lookout for as a new homeowner.

1. Complete one section of the house at a time.

Of course the excitement of getting a place to call your own can be quite overwhelming. So in that moment it’s only natural that you feel like an absolute champ who can work out the moving in process within days. But within hours, the adrenaline would have fizzled and all you’d have are unopened boxes in every part of your home. The best way to go about this is to map your way around. Start with one part of the house and work your way around. This way you don’t get overwhelmed. Don’t work on more than one section of your home unless you have the manpower to do so!

2. Check once, twice and thrice

Before you get the keys handed over to you, check every nook and cranny. If you’re buying your property from a previous owner, make sure the wiring and plumbing are functioning well. Is there a crack in the wall or ceiling? Are the tiles in the bathroom well laid out? Although there would be a warranty period for new properties, surveying the condition of the home before the keys get handed over allows the property developer or previous house owner to get things fixed before you move in.

3. Invest in good air-conditioners

We live in a country where the average temperature ranges from 20°C to 30°C. But we all know that most days the humidity indoors can be really suffocating! Which is why it’s really important that you spend money getting only the best air-conditioners for your home. A new air-conditioner truly worth checking out is the Hitachi RAS-VX13CG, Premium Inverter Air Conditioner.

A new air-conditioner truly worth checking out is the
Hitachi RAS-VX13CG,
Premium Inverter Air Conditioner.

This model comes with the Scene Camera Ceiling technology which scans the room using an image and thermal camera to locate people and their activity levels. Once it scans, it intelligently provides the best and fast cooling solution until the room is at an even temperature. The Hitachi RAS-VX13CG’s Air Sleep Ceiling feature on the other hand adjusts the temperature and air direction to suit your sleeping condition at night. There’s also the Welcome Breeze feature which provides you with strong blows of air. It provides a powerful start up with maximum fan speed that can instantly chill a room. With these features and more, the air-conditioner is able to work efficiently by reducing power consumption via its Eco Mode. Pretty cool right?

4. Hire the right contractor or designer

Planning on building some furniture or renovating? Or maybe redesigning the interior of your home? Whichever it is, be sure to do some fact checking on your contractor or designer. Look at their portfolio or at least do some research online about their company, experience and reviews from previous customers.

5. Keep every single document and receipt

This may seem like a trivial tip but it goes a long way. Scan all your housing documents and proof of payment for every single purchase you’ve made for the house. This way if you face a hiccup with the product you’ve purchased, you will not have misplaced it which usually happens in the chaos of settling into a new place.

Blueair unveils revamped product range

Blueair unveils revamped product range

Blueair unveils revamped new classic product range, better performing, sleeker and with clean air intelligence inside.

First unveiled during the IFA Berlin2015 tech show the much anticipated revamped Classic range is now available in Malaysia since April 2017.

Complete with a new built-in intelligent air monitoring system called ‘Aware’, a more convenient user interface, improved clean air delivery rates, and new design features enabling improved airflow and quieter operation to ensure that your home is safe from pollutants.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that Europe’s air pollution cost in 2010 alone is a staggering 1.6 trillion US dollars, as a result of the approximately 600,000 deaths and diseases it caused.

“Blueair’s new technology puts people in control of the air they breathe and makes healthy living and improved well being as effortless as having a robot vacuum cleaner. The Blueair Classic minimizes triggers for people who suffer from allergies and asthma by cleaning indoor air from 99.97 percent of all pollutants, which is great news for our customers and those they care for,”

said Karin Kruse, Global Product Marketing Manager

In a report, the WHO estimated that about 7 million people worldwide died as a result of air pollution exposure in 2012 alone. South-East Asia and the Western Pacific areas are the regions in which health is most affected by air pollution, with approximately 3.3 million deaths linked to indoor air pollution and 2.6 million to outdoor air pollution.

Concentrations of many samples of air contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are also consistently higher indoors than outdoors. An EPA study covering six communities in various parts of the US found indoor VOC levels up to 10 times higher than outdoors, even in locations with significant outdoor air pollution sources, such as petrochemical plants.

The Blueair Classic air purifier has been designed to protect you and your family from deadly pollutants inside your home.

The enhanced features of the new Classic also includes a more energy-efficient motor as well as a user-friendly interface under a top lid that flips open to reveal the electronic display indicating when a filter needs changing, a WiFi indicator, operating speed indicator and indicators showing levels of PM2.5 dust and VOCs (volatile organic chemicals) in the indoor air.

“The new edition of the Blueair Classic reflects our commitment in leveraging connected home opportunities to make it easier for homeowners and businesses alike to benefit from cleaner, healthier air as they move through their day,”

said Karin Kruse.

She said the enhancements and benefits offered by Blueair’s latest iteration of its Classic product line reflects customer insight that air purifiers should be mobile, non-intrusive and capable of working while a person sleeps, jogs, eats, works, prepares food or reads a magazine while commuting.

In a nutshell, Blueair’s Classic air purifiers are easy to configure, easy to maintain, and perform excellently. It is a no-brainer choice for air purifiers currently offered in the market. Blueair offers a literal plug and play solution that is essential for all homes and indoor spaces. The New Classic product line now comes with 6 different models to match all space requirements and easily available throughout nation via 43 different locations.
