This story is, Our editor will bring you the latest news and hottest products of CES 2021
In the past year, the coronavirus pandemic has changed lives all over the world, forcing changes in our lives, work, and even our diet. At this week’s CES annual show, technology companies are discussing multiple ways to fight COVID-19 through masks, disinfectants, air purifiers and non-contact technologies.
The two companies learned that no single technology can win the fight against viruses, which is why many technologies are positioned as part of the transition of life into the new normal. Such a company Alarm.com,In order to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses, otherwise we often leave them where we touch.
Alarm.com says this is “another way we stay vigilant and protect each other.”
Have robotsDisinfect high-contact and high-traffic areas in company offices, retail stores or restaurants. There are sensors attached to your body that can detect flu-like symptoms with close to hospital-level accuracy. And there is a mask with a built-in microphone, so when you put on the mask, you can still make calls and hear the sound easily. Appropriately, its name is MaskFone. “MaskFone is a daily necessity that protects you and anyone you meet from harmful bacteria, viruses and pollution.”
These new anti-coronavirus products are just the latest ways in which technology has become a key part of modern life. In the past year, countries around the world have established health lockout mechanisms to force workers to commute and require families from different families to keep distance. Since many people follow these guidelines, they turn to video conferencing, social networking and messaging apps to help keep in touch.
They use phones supported by Apple and Google software, and they can warn each other when they may be infected with this virus. The government has established a website to help people avoid illness and determine when to get sick.
Although years of privacy and political scandals have damaged their reputations and weakened trust among customers, many technology companies still view this moment as an opportunity to prove their worth.
With more power and cash than almost any industry in history, the technology industry says it has seen calls for help.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a live presentation at the company in November: “Our mission is to create products that are important to people’s lives.” He announced that by 2021, Apple will Do more.
However, it is important to remember that new products displayed at CES are usually still in the development stage. In particular, health products may not have independent research to support their claims.
However, these new products do provideIn this crisis, what can make life easier.
Although MaskFone provides practicality for workers, there are other mask technologies built around health.
One such mask is AirPop Active+, which is a smart mask with a sensor that tracks your breathing and mixes it with local air quality data to identify when the filter needs to be replaced. AirPop, the company behind the mask, said that its mask will be sold for $150 this month.
The other is Amazfit, which makes a transparent disinfection mask that claims to be able to clean its filter with a built-in UV lamp within 10 minutes.
up in the air
Another way technology companies think they can help fight the coronavirus is through air filtration. For example, Luft Duo is a battery-powered air purifier that claims to purify the air around you.It combines. It is approximately equal to the shaking head size of your car dashboard.
The other is CleanAirZone, which manufactures an air filter that uses “natural organisms and enzymes in nature” instead of traditional filters. Whether this really makes sense remains to be seen.
At the same time, Airthings built, It tracks the level of carbon dioxide, humidity and temperature, which helps determine the possibility of spreading the virus. Wave Plus is designed for offices, while the smaller Wave Mini is designed for home use.
However, all these technologies alone are not enough to provide defense. The Environmental Protection Agency stated that they cannot protect you from COVID-19 alone. It said that in addition to “other best practices recommended by the CDC and others,” people need to use it.
Light up the road
Robots and masks disinfected with ultraviolet rays. There are also refrigerators. When in use, the refrigerator will use ultraviolet rays to disinfect your water.
This is the idea behind the LG InstaView refrigerator series. As the name suggests, there is a translucent glass window on the refrigerator door. When you knock on the glass window twice, the glass window will light up. New models announced during CES.
In addition to UV disinfectants, refrigerators now have microphones and speakers, so you can say “open the refrigerator door” and it will do it. LG did not disclose their prices, but previous high-end LG refrigerators cost as much as $4,000.
The pandemic technology has appeared in our faces, our phones, our food and our air-it is only a matter of time before it also appears in our bathrooms.
Kohler built a toilet, E.g. Starting in March, you can realize your Jedi dream of fighting the pandemic up to $1,000.
The company also has a toilet worth $3,100 with some additional features, including automatic opening and closing, a remote control and a fancy bidet.
We will look for more COVID-19 fighting techniques throughout the week. Therefore, stay tuned to CNET for more CES news.
