With no certainty of when the COVID-19 pandemic will end, we try to find ways to adapt to the new normal. New safety measures are put into place and everything must now be properly sanitized. That’s where the Samsung AirDresser comes in.

We try our best to limit our going out in this pandemic and having to go out just to get your suit dry cleaned every time you use it just doesn’t seem efficient nor ideal in this situation.

Samsung’s AirDresser makes it possible to clean and sanitize your favorite suit at the comforts and safety of your home. Its Jet Air and Air Hangers removes the dirt and dust while the JetSteam sanitizes the clothes and gets rid of bacteria, viruses and allergens.  It not only cleans your suit but also presses and smoothen outs the wrinkles with its Wrinkle Care.

Another great feature of is that it has a Deodorizing Filter that breaks down odor particles caused by sweat, smoke and food. This I perfect for people like me who get allergic reactions to smoke and scents that stick to clothing.

With its Self-Clean technology, you need not worry about daily cleaning and sanitizing of the insides of the AirDresser as it has its own built-in sanitizing feature that makes use of heat, air and steam. After 40 cycles it will notify the user when it needs to be cleaned.

Petpuls activity tracker monitors your dog’s wellbeing

Available now on Indiegogo with a special early-bird price

Published

It is without a doubt that dogs are one of the most beloved pets. Like all living beings, they too need affection and proper care. However, pet owners know it can be hard to take care of their furry friends sometimes. Thankfully, there’s a new product that simplifies monitoring of a dog’s well-being for owners.

Petpuls is a recently-launched activity tracker on Indiegogo. It monitors a dog’s physical and mental well-being. Yes, this activity tracker built-in to a collar monitors it all thanks to a proprietary AI technology. This AI technology tunes in to a dog’s bark and recognizes five emotional states: happy, sad, anxious, relaxed, or angry.

While this technology won’t let your dog speak to you like the way Dug does in the movie Up, Petpuls ensure an accuracy rate of more than 80% for this technology. After all, the algorithm behind Petpuls uses a database of more than 10,000 bark samples from 50 dog breeds of 4 different sizes.

Aside from tracking a dog’s emotional state, Petpuls also tracks physical activities. The collar houses a built-in accelerometer that calculates the number of calories burned. Those who are wondering just how active their dog is can now easily do it with Petpuls.

On the mobile app, owners can register their dogs to create a unique profile within the Petpuls community. Owners can set the name, breed, gender, weight, age, and more of their dogs within the app. There’s also a “pet favorites” feature to keep track of a dog’s favorite food, toys, as well as canine best friends.

Availability of Petpuls activity tracker

Petpuls is available on Indiegogo for an early-bird price of USD 79. For that price, owners are getting the activity tracker along with an eco-friendly interchangeable collar. Those who missed the Indiegogo campaign may avail it on Amazon for USD 99. It will ship to eager dog owners in late August 2020.
