While at Computex 2019, I explored InnoVEX, a place for promising startups. I stumbled upon the Korean Pavilion, where the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) showcased its global startups. The moment I saw the word “Korea,” I knew I needed to take a peek.

After going around the exhibit, I found two devices you probably need in your life as well, especially if you care about your heart and skin.


SmartSound’s Skeeper

Skeeper is an IoT-based smart stethoscope designed to monitor your family’s healthcare at home. It lets you monitor and understand your health condition by checking your heart’s status.

To access the data, you need to download apps that are suited for you. Skeeper Mama is for pregnant moms checking their health and their fetus’ status; Skeeper Baby is for infants and toddlers; while Skeeper Heart is for adults, seniors, and patients with heart complications.

Compared to other electronic devices, Skeeper uses sound processing technology which digitizes and visualizes the heartbeat’s sound without any other noise. Moreover, it’s safe to use and Skeeper guarantees it won’t harm the baby in the womb.

LuluLab’s Lumini AI Skincare Assistant

We all know that skin is an indicator of our condition. However, we’re unsure of our skin’s status until the effects manifest in ways we don’t like such as acne breakouts and oiliness. (Ew!)

Fret not! LuluLab, a spin-off company by Samsung C-Lab, developed tech that promises to change the way we monitor our skin. LuluLab’s Lumini AI Skincare Assistant is a beauty device that scans your face, analyzes your skin, and recommends a product using AI technology.

It’s connected through a mobile app that shows the results after the device scans your face and analyzes its condition within 10 seconds. After the diagnosis, Lumini will tailor skincare solutions and recommend cosmetic products that best meet your skincare needs.

Computex 2019 was full of products, from known brands all around the world, down to startups — which were all found at InnoVEX. We roamed around TWTC (Taipei World Trade Center) to find interesting startup products that would entice regular consumers and we found this portable device.

Paperang S2 is the second iteration of the device. Just like what they stand for, their products don’t use ink and instead rely on thermal printing and wear-resistant thermal paper. What’s improved is the 300dpi printing (in contrast to the S1’s less clear 200dpi). You can print your selfies, favorite photos, create simple texts and banners, and even add more designs before printing, all within the app.

Pantone accessories are here to complement your style!

We want ’em all!

Over the years, Pantone has grown as an authority and standard for colors. What was once a color guide for designers has become a part of contemporary culture. As people started identifying themselves through Pantone’s colored chips, manufacturers capitalized on this trend by incorporating Pantone into their products.

Through Pantone Universe licensing, manufacturers can apply Pantone’s branding and popular design. I’ve seen different applications, mostly on fashion and lifestyle accessories, but seeing it on computer peripherals and other electronics is a total treat.


Originally manufactured by DataPlus Supplies Inc., this Taiwanese company sells Pantone-licensed accessories that you’ll definitely buy to match your style.

For instance, they sell gaming accessories in different shades of blue. One of their best-looking is the teal-colored one, as it deviates from the usual blue and black combination used by gamers in their gaming setups.

You can also make a statement using these Pantone-colored USB fans and speakers when you’re traveling, especially in hot and humid countries. Fabulous, right?

For those who want to stay connected, stay away from the usual white and black power banks and get a Pantone-colored unit! There’s a rare chance of losing it compared to when you use a more generic power bank. And oh, they also have wireless chargers!

If you truly embrace Pantone’s branding, there’s a bag carrying the color guide’s popular design.

Lastly, there’s a whole line of computer accessories and electronics waiting for you. Pantone really found its way into our lives and yes, we want all of them!
