1. LG InstaView Fridge
LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator ($10,888) was recognised by Red Dot for successfully combining beautiful design with interactive technology. The refrigerator features a 29-inch LCD touch display, which instantly turns transparent with just two knocks, letting customers peer inside without opening the door. The Smart Tag menu lets users add stickers and tags on the screen to indicate which foods are stored inside, as well as input the expiration date of each item.
2. LG Singnature Oled TV W
The LG Signature OLED TV W ($12,888) features an awe-inspiring Picture-on-Wall design that takes the TV concept and turns it into a piece of art. The super thin minimal profile of the 65-inch W7 — less than 4mm thick when mounted on the wall — creates the illusion of the TV levitating in mid-air, making the viewing experience even more immersive.
3. LG Signature Air Purifier
Boasting a unique design that departs from the usual boxy look, the LG Signature Air Purifier ($2,000) allows the air cleaning process to be a visual experience through the Rain View Window. Users can view the air purification process and the inner workings of the air purifier with its Smart Indicator. The Black Filter System allows users to reuse the filters for up to 10 years. Plus, it filters harmful chemicals and contaminants while quickly bringing the room to comfortable humidity levels with their advanced Watering System feature.
4. Samsung QLED TV
From Samsung’s new QLED TV series comes the new Q9F 65” QLED 4K Flat Smart TV ($8,999), which offers improved colour performance and enhanced Smart TV offerings. The TV comes with a single, transparent ‘Invisible Cable’, which runs to the One Connect box, through which all the external devices can be gathered and connected to. Other features include a high-dynamic range and wide colour spectrum.
5. Cornell Smart Sensor Steam Iron
With the nifty Cornell Smart Sensor Steam Iron ($99.90), you don’t have to worry about burnt clothes, accidental scalding or in more serious cases, house fires. The steam iron comes with a safety feature to automatically shut off the appliance after a period of zero motion. In addition, it features a temperature range of 100 to 140 degrees Celsius — the optimal range for all kinds of fabrics.
6. Ecovacs Robotics Vacuum Cleaner
The Ecovacs Robotics Deebot R98 ($1,199) is a self-emptying, 2-in-1 cleaning system with smartphone control. The Smart Navi technology scans and maps the environment, planning an optimal cleaning path and using its memory to resume cleaning after charging. R98 also features a cordless, handheld stick vacuum with a suite of attachments to clean surfaces a typical robot cannot reach.
7. Philips Air Purifier Series 3000
For allergy sufferers, the Philips Air Purifier Series 3000 AC3256/30 ($799)’s dedicated Allergen mode boosts the air purifier to target common airborne allergen such as pollen, dust and mould spores. These allergens are then removed through the NanoProtect Pro HEPA and activated carbon filter. This model comes with a numerical PM2.5 indicator, together with a 4-step colour ring, to provide real-time feedback of your current indoor air quality.
8. Tefal Tweeny 2-in-1
Made for linen care, Tefal Tweeny 2-in-1 ($219) is both an iron and garment steamer in one neat package. Made for time-starved individuals who want to look slick without the fuss of bulky irons and steamers, the light yet powerful gadget can rid the most testing creases. Use it horizontally as an iron or vertically as a garment steamer when you need to freshen up that shirt — while it’s on the hanger.
