This year, a second IFA ShowStoppers event took place at STATION-Berlin. IFA International checked out some of the products on show
JACKERY POWER OUTDOORS
Total indoor air quality is attainable with the Airthings Wave Plus. Their app and online dashboard tell consumers when there are toxins, chemicals and gasses in the air, including the carcinogenic gas, Radon.
SUNNYTIMES HOVVER SHOES
Sunnytimes’ self-balancing hovver shoes caused a stir at IFA. Destined to become a global street craze, they combine the fun of roller skates with the practicality of e-transportation. Once mastered, the shoes, with their rugged platform and roller, can propel the user at up to 15 km/h for up to 12 km on a single charge.
FITCARE INTELLIGENT JEWELRY
“The things we wear on our bodies are an extension of ourselves,” Wired magazine once philosophised. In this spirit, fashion-tech company Totwoo focuses on combining wearable technology with jewelry design to create wearable devices that reflect the personality of every individual while also tracking steps, calorie consumption, or warning wearers when they’ve been sitting for too long.
Windgoo brought its e-scooter and e-bike to IFA. Both models are powered by lithium battery and have a range of up to 35km, which makes them ideal for commuting. The Windgoo system features regenerative braking where, during deceleration, kinetic energy is converted back to electric power and returned to the battery.
MANGO MIST HUMIDIFIER
The Mango Mist Humidi er, with one- button touch, requires one short press to start the mist emission and a long press to turn on the mood light. Mango-shaped, small and portable, it is easy to carry around. It can work inside a vehicle and in any living space. It is silent and can run for four hours non-stop and up to eight hours with intervals when it is switched off.
This light, compact, portable and distinctly retro-styled turntable combines a powerful wireless speaker and is designed to revive vinyl collections covered in dust. Duo comes with a detachable Bluetooth speaker (featuring a CSR8670 Qualcomm chip) to integrate the wireless digital streaming experience with vinyl’s unmistakable analogue high fidelity. The speaker also integrates voice control via Amazon Alexa.
