The 5 Best Home Appliances from CES 2017
The home appliances presented in this CES 2017 are, for the first time, almost as much protagonists as consumer electronics products. Here are some of the most interesting that has left the event.
The CES of Las Vegas is a technological event that at times seems not to know very well what to do. It is clarified and thinly capricious like that of a town close to an industrial estate. Just like a year, smartphone manufacturers are struggling to leave the event as memorable as another year (Xperia Z at CES 2013, for example), just as another year the phones go much more unnoticed and more TVs, wearables, or directly we pass to a white range of which surprisingly it begins to speak. It is the dream of almost all the manufacturers: that not only monopolize their consumer electronics products, but the protagonism also relapses in washing machines, refrigerators and other appliances. These are the CES 2017 appliances that for the first time have made me interested in appliances . Really.
The washing machines with a single drum are for the cowards
That should have been LG’s thinking, and I’m starting to agree. It’s LG’s Twin Wash washer, a double washer. At the top, the traditional big drum. In the lower, a rather smaller removable drawer for reduced laundry (underwear, a couple of shirts, the life of the bachelor, go). According to LG, the intention is “to spend less time attending homework doing the same”, since we will not have to wait to accumulate as much special care clothes or small size to wash it together with the same program. Of course, it connects with LG HomeChat , LG’s communication system between its smartphones and household appliances.
Roomba, I introduce you to Samsung
The automatic aspirator of the South Koreans in this CES 2017 is called Samsung POWERbot VR9000 . The company previously had similar models, but less spectacular than this in several senses: with more traditional designs, with definitely more solemn presentations, and … round! This new design is designed to remove dirt from the corners better. The video is spectacular.
Roomba, Samsung, I present LG
In LG they had prepared the web with the legend “The only aspirator robot square” to announce the LG Hombot Square but they did not count on that Samsung also was going to present that same thing. In any case, it is his proposal, which is also “square” but with fairly rounded edges. Double camera and thought so that the dirt does not accumulate in the corners, those who have a round robot aspirator will know what that is.
The aspiration cooler
Normally, high-end refrigerators have a small “problem”: size. Maybe at some point I could get that fridge, but I could not move to a huge house so I could have it in the kitchen. Something like this has to think Samsung with its new T9000 refrigerator , which is now narrower and adapts to the space for standard kitchen furniture. It has a capacity of 770 liters and a few technologies of which neither a worker of a digital medium on technology is accustomed to listen: Triple Cooling System , that generates three separate air currents between freezer and refrigerator; Cool Select Plus , a freezer compartment inside the freezer that allows you to choose between four temperature ranges: 5º, 1.1º, -5º and between -17º and -22ºC.
And another aspirational refrigerator
In this case, the LG LPXS34886C (if you go to buy it, better name it, its European version is called LG GMM916NSHV). It increases capacity up to 962 liters and has a Door-in-Door system , which basically serves to have more space on one side and to quickly access frequently used foods or beverages, such as juice or fruit, without having to open The entire fridge. It is also pretty: it has a contoured glass finish. What is not, is cheap: 3,099 euros will have to pay to be taken home.
The washing machine that we will love those who live in apartments
That Samsung, precisely Samsung, present a washing machine with built-in laundry sink, can give rise to think that we are before a new car of Homer , but seriously, those who live in small houses / apartments / lofts appreciate these kind of proposals . If you do not think about what this type of sink can serve, it is that your delicate clothes need a little more affection before you put it rough in the washing machine. In addition, the integration does not carry an extra space, but the sink is integrated in the lid. This will someday be much more useful than the widescreen mode of the native camera applications of smartphones.
