IFA this year will be from 1-6 September, 2017.

As a lead-up to the actual trade show in September, the organisers have gathered some of the key exhibitors and media from around the world in a preview mini-show, featuring product showcases, as well as briefs and presentations on the latest trends on consumer electronics and home appliances.

Stay tuned over the next few days (especially 21-22 Apr, Fri-Sat) when the show will be in full tilt.

I’ll be bringing along a couple of newest and latest gadgets to try out during the trip.

New arrival: Dyson Pure Cool Link air purifier fan in Singapore

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

The new Pure Cool Link comes in desktop (S$699, from end May) and tower (S$1,099, end April) form factors.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan automatically removes 99.95% of indoor allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns from the air.

The Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan automatically removes 99.95% of indoor allergens and pollutants as small as 0.1 microns from the air.

The new Dyson Pure Cool Link purifier fan uses a unique 360° Glass HEPA filter.

“We think it is polluted outside of our homes, but the air inside can be far worse. Dyson engineers focused on developing a purifier that automatically removes ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants from the indoor air, feeding real time air quality data back to you,” says James Dyson, Inventor & Founder of Dyson.

This technology captures 99.95% of ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants as small as 0.1µ from the air – keeping them in the filter.

Sensors inside the machine detect changes in conditions, before automatically adjusting airflow to maintain the target air quality.

The machine projects cleaner, purified air around the room evenly and quietly, purifying all year round and doubling up as a fan to cool you in the summer.

Dyson currently already has a Pure Cool purifier fan on the market.

This new version (Pure Cool Link) features connectivity to an iOS/Android app so that users can control/manage the purifier remotely, and peruse environmental recorded by the purifier’s sensors.
