Latest tablet tech without costing a fortune

Living well during this new at-home normal takes relying on our technology more for fun, learning and light productivity. It can be challenging enough these days without worrying about sharing technology that’s hard for some family members to use. In comes the Lenovo Tab P11 — it’s the happy medium between giving your family access to the latest tech they need, without costing a fortune or sacrificing the experience you want from a sleek and powerful tablet.

The Lenovo Tab P11 helps you get more stuff done with smarter features and pen support —  making your day better when seeking news, social connections, and hours of entertainment with more pixels.

It offers an 11-inch high-definition 2K (2000 x 1200) touchscreen IPS liquid crystal display (LCD) that’s larger and brighter too at 400 nits. With integrated Eye Care mode technology certified by TÜV Rheinland, the display also helps lower harmful blue light to reduce eye strain.

The exterior of the Lenovo Tab P11 looks as sharp as its clear display, styled with a contemporary dual-tone finish in either Slate Grey or Platinum Grey hue with a sturdy aluminum-alloy chassis for a sleeker profile.

Powered by the efficient Snapdragon 662 Mobile Platform with advanced LTE, integrated Qualcomm FastConnect subsystem and packed with up to 6GB RAM for speedy browsing, the Lenovo Tab P11 is also one of just a handful of tablets certified to stream Netflix shows in HD (high definition).

Listen to your favorite tunes from anywhere in the home for up to 15 hours of usage at full charge, as you endlessly auto-switch between the familiar interface of preloaded Microsoft Office apps (e.g., Microsoft Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint) and the popular productivity apps from Google Play.

The family-friendly Lenovo Tab P11 also comes with Kids Space from Google, a new kids mode that features apps, books, and videos to help kids under nine years of age learn and have fun  (while the adults finish online work meetings in the other room).

For catching up with friends or while learning remotely, you’ll love the ease of hands-free login and first-class video calling via the 8MP front camera. Don’t want your mom commenting on your messy living room during your weekend video chats? Just use the Smart Privacy feature to blur your background. Play music and videos in high fidelity with immersive sound powered by quad speakers and with Dolby Atmos for great sounding audio in landscape or portrait mode.

The Lenovo Tab P11 is great for getting more done at home with the optional, ultra-thin Keyboard Pack with built-in trackpad that just snaps into place when you need to fire off an email before lunch. The magnetic stand cover and integrated kickstand prop up the tablet to resemble a slim detachable.

The intuitive Lenovo Precision Pen 2 is capable of sensing tilt and your subtle pressure adjustments for a smoother digital writing and doodling experience. With a long battery life up to 200 hours with a battery capacity of 60mAh, and USB Type-C plug for charging, this optional pen stands ready for when inspiration strikes.

This affordable Android tablet supports other must-have optional accessories built for the new normal too, including the handy Lenovo Smart Charging Station 2 that enables hands-free movie watching and stable charging while docked, and a new Folio Case outfitted in a modern fabric to provide extra protection for when you toss it in your tote bag and go.

Pricing and availability

The Lenovo Tab P11 will start at US$ 229.99 and is available now.

Oblio is a 2-in-1 UV-C sanitizer and wireless charging station

Keeping it clean stylishly

Published

on

Admit it or not, UV-C sterilizers and sanitizers are now revolutionizing our home and office spaces. At CES 2021, Lexon Design took cleaning accessories up a notch.

Introducing Oblio, this vase-like UV-C sanitizer helps prevent the spread of harmful bacteria found on our smartphones. It has a built-in UV-C LED, which extinguishes the DNA of microorganisms found in viruses, mold, and germs.

Oblio is capable of extensive disinfection, sanitizing your device for a 20-minute cycle. Through lab testing, it has been proven effective to kill 99.9 percent of viruses, including H1N1.

Just like Samsung’s personal sanitizer, Oblio also lets you charge your devices wirelessly. With a 10W wireless charging capability, you can fully charge a smartphone in three hours. Additionally, it comes with an LED indicator. This is so you’ll know the charging status of your device inside.

But what sets it apart from other sanitizers? Apparently, Oblio’s meaning and design. The name Oblio means “forgot” in the native language of Italian designers Manuela Simonelli and Andrea Quaglio.

Its meaning echoes the accessory’s vase shape, ingeniously designed to help people disconnect — literally forgetting their smartphones so they can be more present.

Price and availability

Oblio sanitizes and charges all Qi-enabled smartphones, regardless if it’s iPhone or Android. The 2-in-1 accessory is already available at prominent retailers worldwide such as Best Buy, Nordstrom, MoMA Design Store in the US, Fnac Darty in Europe, and more.

It retails for US$ 79.90 and is available in four colors: White, Gold, Dark Blue, and Matt Black. You can get it through its official online store at Lexon Design.

Hedgehog protects your smart home from cyber attacks

This homeware keeps people, data, and devices safe

Published

on

Protecting your home is more than just smart locks, CCTVs, and firewalls for your digital premises. With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) or those appliances and devices that are becoming smarter, life has been easier. However, the price of convenience comes with the risk of a new threat: cyber attacks.

These days, both enterprises and homeowners must increase security at all levels. As such, we need an extra guardian. Meet Hedgehog, the “world’s first whole home” cybersecurity device.

Launched at CES 2021, Hedgehog was described as a home’s digital guardian, protecting the household from possible attacks that firewalls and anti-virus software can’t.

The digital guardian we need?

Unsure how you can possibly be attacked? Imagine if your smart fridge got hacked, or if your smart vacuum malfunctioned. How about if your smart locks break and make it possible for actual thieves to enter your home.

These situations aren’t far from happening in our reality. After all, cyber criminals are actively and increasingly targeting everyday people. Home networks are easy to target to access personal and corporate data, especially at an age where people are remotely working from home.

Hedgehog aims to protect the entire home and all IoT devices inside a network. From phones, fridges, PCs, speakers, webcams, tablets, and Smart TVs — basically anything that’s smart enough to use the Internet and make your life easier.

A smart, functional homeware

Despite being a digital guardian, Hedgehog doesn’t dismiss your existing firewalls and anti-virus software. Rather, it works alongside those security measures and other home security products, offering holistic protection. It simply shields all the people, devices, and networks within a home.

Even though it’s a smart piece of technology, designed to look like homeware. Its unassuming look helps it blends easily. It’s also smart enough to install itself and connect to an existing Wi-Fi connection.

And when it does, it watches the entire household, identifying anything suspicious, and alerts the home-owner via an app. It also neutralizes threats quickly and effectively, protecting both data and people.

Price and availability

The Hedgehog device and its annual subscription are available to pre-order at a discounted price of EUR 99 with no subscription fees. It’s available in two colors: Orange Belly and Midnight Blue. Get more information about the device and its offers through this link.

Combine and change scents using Ninu’s sustainable, smart perfume

Wear the right scent that matches your every mood

Published

on

Of all things that could get smarter, it’s a perfume. Yes, you read that right. At CES 2021, Ninu launched the “first smart perfume in the world,” with a connected device that’s capable of changing scents with every spray.

It’s a unique approach to an everyday item, interesting enough to pique our curiosity. After all, it has an unassuming yet elegant look.

The fusion of beauty and technology

How does it work? This AI-powered perfume uses an app to personalize a scent, fusing ingredients with only a few clicks. It lets you wear the right scent appropriate for every mood and look.

It seamlessly delivers an astonishing perfume through its electronic micro-precision extracting system, guided by its Ninu’s very own assistant — Pierre, the perfume master.

Pierre, just like Siri and Alexa, is an AI assistant that executes whatever wishes you have regarding your scent and helps you have full control over anything you do on the app. The assistant also notifies you when you’re running low on stock.

Feel sexy and earth-friendly

Despite being able to design a premium perfume bottle, assembled with the best of tech, Ninu believes the most important thing is the fragrances themselves. After all, Ninu used 100 percent vegan, sustainably-sourced ingredients — with a wholesome procedure designed in France.

This smart perfume is more than just a smart accessory. It presents itself as a sustainable, essential item that makes you feel fresh and sexy, and also earth-friendly.

Ninu uses natural ink in packaging cartons and uses less packaging to scale down plastic consumption. Instruction leaflets are replaced with a QR code, therefore, fewer papers. Moreover, perfume bottles are made from recycled glass since every 10 percent increase in recycled glass housing cuts down CO2 emissions by five percent.
