 The Ambi Climate Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

27 Jun

The Ambi Climate uses artificial intelligence (AI) software to generate temperature and humidity profiles and then collects and learns from actual user comfort feedback via a smartphone app to develop real world, year round profiles

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Hong Kong – Optimizing AC use is not an easy task, which is why the Ambi Climate 2 makes use of artificial intelligence to personalize ambient conditions. Apparently, a lot of people loved the Ambi Climate unit’s value-added business proposition so much that Ambi Labs raised over HK$1,215,900 from 1,016 backers via its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that ended on June 22, 2017.

 The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room's Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate was created by Ambi Labs, a Hong Kong-based company founded by Julian Lee, Paul Sykes, and Tim Chang. They state their mission as being a sort of ‘leave no man behind’ approach to technology, wherein aged appliances are given a makeover using modern innovation. With the second edition of the Ambi Climate, the aim remains to make air conditioners more energy-efficient and customizable.

The device achieves that with the help of AI software, which studies user comfort and the corresponding conditions to create unique profiles for them. It finds out how comfortable a user is at any given time via a mobile app, where you can tell the device how much its estimation of your comfort level differs from what it actually is. As you do that over different months and passing seasons, the AI learns your individual preferences and optimizes the temperature accordingly.

While user feedback is one way the Ambi Climate tweaks its own operation, it isn’t the only way. The device uses a variety of sensors to track such factors as humidity and sunlight. It also gathers data from the Web to understand weather trends during that time of year, clothing people are most likely to have on, and temperature variations at different times of the day. It uses all this information to deliver the most appropriate climate control automatically. According to the creators, that leads to as much as 30 percent savings in power bills.

Ambi Climate can be paired with air conditioners using the Ambi Climate App, which is available for Android and iOS users. Once that’s done, you can place the device in view of the AC and leave it to do its thing. The app also enables a geo-location feature; the Ambi Climate finds out when you’re about to get home and fires up the AC, so conditions are perfect as you walk in. You can tie those features in with other smart home IOT paraphernalia thanks to IFTTT and Amazon Alexa integrations.

XYZ Groups’ Fashion-Tech Stretch Suit is liquid and stain repellent, wrinkle resistant, odor proof, has 12 travel pockets and is made of 100% stretch material

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Shanghai, China – The X SUIT, made for young professionals, the corporate manager and all men in between who want to look sharp and modern while they dress in comfort, has more than doubled its $50,000 crowdfunding during the first week of it Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

XYZ Group's modern and stylish X SUIT is transforming functional fashion technology. It's the world's first full stretch suit; liquid & stain repellent, wrinkle resistant and odor proof

XYZ Group’s modern and stylish X SUIT is transforming functional fashion technology. It’s the world’s first full stretch suit; liquid & stain repellent, wrinkle resistant and odor proof

According to X SUIT’s designer Max Perez, “X SUITS accommodate a high level of activity and movement for the young modern business professional, and can be worn for days without showing signs of wear or odor.”

The X Shell Fabric is equipped with four-way stretch capabilities and an elasticized lining, allowing the wearer to experience a full range of motion which is unattainable in a traditional suit. The added Tensile Thread allows the seams to move with the garment, adding durability.

Perez says, “The suit’s durability over several days also makes it the ultimate in travel accessories.”

The X SUITS’ X Shield® has both liquid- and stain-repellency and can adapt to any weather situation or unfortunate spill. The technology repels liquids and stains alike, keeping the X SUIT looking sharp and clean. Simply pouring water over any stain will cause it to roll off the fabric.

The X Shield further equips the X SUIT with Wrinkle Defense technology making it the perfect travel suit. The X SUIT can be packed in any suitcase and come out without wrinkles.

X SUITS’ inner lining has been specially paneled with X Membrane® to Neutralize Odors and keep it smelling fresh all day and night. Each fiber in the lining attracts, isolates, and neutralizes odors immediately, and with quick dry capabilities, keeps sweat stains to a minimal.

The X SUIT is offered in 14 custom sizes and will sell at the fraction of the cost of a similar product. Kickstarter backers will receive their suits approximately three months after funding.

X SUIT Features include:

  • 12 discrete pockets for specific functionality
  • Wrinkle-free and easily packable – perfect for corporate travel
  • Phone compartment holds any size phone
  • Modern yet classic design
  • Four-way stretch fabric with shape retention
  • Elasticized, flexible waistband construction
  • Odor Neutralizing and Quick Dry Lining
  • Liquid and Stain Repellent
  • Metal anodized buttons and zippers
  • Minimized maintenance and dry-cleaning

Perez says X SUIT is an ideal choice for the young professional who wants to look sharp and modern, and for the corporate manager who is looking for comfort in his work apparel.

“This is the suit for the stylish man on the go, and it’s the only suit he will ever need,” Perez added. “Our stretch fabric and lining makes the suit fit like its tailor-made. We reduce fabric in areas such as the arms and waist to give the suit a true fitted appearance without feeling stiff or binding.”

X SUIT was created by XYZ Group, which is based in Shanghai and run by Canadian brothers Max, Reouven and Nathaniel Perez. The Perez brothers are veteran apparel manufacturers with more than 30 years combined garment manufacturing experience.

Their manufacturing partners have contributed to some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including suits in the Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Zara lines and is highly skilled with technology applications and tailoring.

XYZ Group and their manufacturing partners have spent more than two years creating and testing dozens of prototypes to arrive at the X SUIT design. They intend to continue to create smart, stylish and comfortable fashion for people on the go.

Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Introduces Cool New Tool for Restaurants to Safely Devein Lobsters that Is Super Fast and More Thorough than Using a Broken Antennae

26 Jun

 The patent-pending Lobster Deveiner is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Scott Mobley, firefighter and creator of the first Lobster Deveining Tool, is launching his first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on Saturday, July 1, 2017. Mobley has created the first ever tool to devein lobster safely, quickly, and more efficiently than any other method. He has appropriately named his company “D Vein.”

Scott Mobley demonstrating how simple it is to prepare lobster using the Lobster Deveining Tool

As a fire fighter from Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue, Mobley has learned to cherish every day and make it count, as it could be his last. On his days off, Mobley enjoys fishing and diving, especially for lobsters. Since he was young, Mobley dreaded cleaning spiny lobsters with their broken antennae the old-fashioned way and now, 20+ years later, Mobley has created the first Lobster Deveiner designed to remove the intestinal tract without the hassle.

Mobley was inspired to create this one-of-a-kind tool from his love of fishing and catching lobster. This is the very first product ever invented to devein and properly clean lobster.

The Lobster Deveiner Tool is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly. This tool is patent-pending and works great and has been getting outstanding reviews and the feedback from all of the people in the lobster fishing business that have seen it.

“Let me just say, the days of dreading cleaning the lobsters we catch are long gone. Some people might just say, ‘Why not just use the free antennae?’  You could, but if you clean as many lobsters as we do, we recommend buying the $8 lobster cleaning tool.  It is just so much faster, easier and more dependable than using a broken antennae.”-B. Jax

“Saves a lot of time, works really well. Greatest invention yet for lobster season.”- LA Livin

D Vein will be available exclusively online via Kickstarter beginning Saturday, July 1 at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/219595839/911454420?token=d3f1f482.

zeAC, a New Type of Air Conditioner that Uses Zero Electricity to Cool Rooms, Is Raising Funds Via Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

19 Jun

 The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort throughout through the day and night

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Lanham, Maryland – The patent-pending Zero Electric Air-conditioned (zeAC) plans to raise $250,000 through its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to finance the project, which has the potential to revolutionize the conventional and established concepts of air-conditioning that require large amounts of electricity and leave a dirty carbon footprint. The zeAC units are a great way to cool rooms in both homes and offices while reducing the amount of air pollution being produced by coal power plants that are causing the earth’s temperature to rise.

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

“We have researched and created a green air conditioning solution that can cool rooms without using electricity,” said Anaele Iroh, zeAC’s inventor. “The device works by absorbing vapor from the air and brings down temperature by absorption of heat. Please visit our zeAC crowdfunding campaign that is currently live on Indiegogo and buy one or more units for your home or office!”

The simple and user-friendly zeAC is easy to operate. It involves refilling the tank with water every morning. The system helps create a micro-climate of stable humidity and cool comfort, right through the day and night. The unique zeAC is ideal for use in rooms measuring 100 square feet or for larger rooms, just deploy more zeAC units.

The main component is a cylinder with micro-porous surfaces that can help control the climate. Water evaporates from these surfaces and helps cool down the air inside the room. The added benefit is that the zeAC’s plants absorb harmful CO2 in the room and release fresh oxygen, thus making the atmosphere inside the room healthy and enjoyable.

According to the team associated with developing this unique air conditioner, during the testing process of zeAC, the device cooled down room temperatures to around 27 degrees Celsius even as the temperature outside was around 35 degrees Celsius. With zeAC, users will enjoy a constantly controlled room air temperature, humidity levels, increased oxygen, reduced CO2 and reduced temperature swings reducing thermal discomfort.

The device also has a heating element that can add heat on cooler days in small amounts to ensure that the air conditioner’ main cylinder always maintains a temperature of 36 degrees. This helps bring room temperature to a steady 24 degrees. In tests conducted in winter climate of -1 degree Celsius, the humidity was around 65 per cent according to the developers of zeAC.

The zeAC can be used with a large variety of plants including Peace Lily, Money Plant, Bamboo Palm and Mother-in-law’s tongue. It also works well with popular trees like Peepal Tree, Rama Tulsi, Christmas Cactus, Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, Neem Tree, and Areca Palm.

According to the team of developers of the project, zeAC is 100 times more energy efficient, healthy and sustainable than conventional air conditioners. It can be used as an alternative to regular AC units and can be easily integrated with the décor and interiors of any room due to its small size and sleek appearance. The unit can enhance the appearance of any home or office when placed in a flower put accompanied by attractive and colorful flowers.

ArborCrowd Offers Investors Estimated 13%-17% IRR with 4-7 Year Hold Period on $69.7 Million Crowdfunding Real Estate Investment Opportunity

16 Jun

The business plan is to cultivate tremendous value upon sale of this property, while maintaining strong annual returns for new investors that want to invest alongside seasoned, experienced ArborCrowd institutional investors

By Robert Hoskins

Miami, Florida – ArborCrowd, one of the top commercial real estate equity crowdfunding sites, announced today a new real estate investment opportunity – known as the Lago Paradiso. A profitable and stabilized multifamily complex, this property is located in Miami, Fla., one of the most international and desirable marketplaces to live in the United States.

A new commercial real estate investment offering, Lago Paradiso is a value-add, multifamily lakefront apartment complex located in Miami

ArborCrowd investors have the opportunity to own a piece of a $4 million equity stake in Lago Paradiso. The Property has a targeted 13 percent to 17 percent Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and a projected hold period of four to seven years.

The goal of the business plan is to cultivate tremendous value upon sale of the Property, while maintaining strong annual returns for investors. This will be executed through a value-add repositioning, experienced property management and operational efficiency.

“ArborCrowd is the engine that brings successful real estate investments with the industry’s best sponsors and crowd investors,” said Ivan Kaufman, Co-founder and CEO, ArborCrowd. “The long-standing relationships that ArborCrowd has developed with institutional real estate investors has enabled us to attract a network of successful leaders who know how to source, manage and execute some of the best multifamily deals in the country.”

ArborCrowd’s investment model is unlike other crowdfunding platforms – the quality of the real estate is at the core of the business. Other models pool investors’ money into funds that are blindly allocated to different assets. ArborCrowd created a better way to invest by providing investors the transparency and knowledge to choose what deals their money goes into.

“Looking at just the returns of a property are not enough. ArborCrowd will only post what we believe is a strong investment offering. In order to be confident in the deal, we hone in on the depth and breadth of the sponsor’s experience,” said Adam Kaufman, Co-founder and Managing Director, ArborCrowd. “This commitment to only presenting high caliber deals is proving to be successful as all our previous deals funded quickly – with ArborCrowd’s last equity raise oversubscribed in just three business days.”

Lago Paradiso Deal Highlights
The Property was acquired in May 2017 for $69.7 million. Lago Paradiso is a lakefront apartment complex that consists of 27 buildings with 424 one and two bedroom units – currently 97 percent occupied.

The business plan is to create value by increasing rents through renovations, and by implementing new property management and operational expertise. Robbins Electra and its affiliates own and operate more than 22,000 units. This extensive management experience, particularly in Florida, means the Sponsor is well equipped to manage rent escalations while leveraging proprietary systems to improve operational costs.

Key benefits for ArborCrowd investors, include:

  • Basis: As an off-market transaction, this property was acquired at a favorable purchase price.
  • Proven Plan: Prior to the acquisition, 14 units were renovated and re-leased at higher rents. The current plan is to significantly expand this proven approach and accelerate renovations to generate even more cash flow and increase overall property value.
  • Cash-on-Cash: The projected cash-on-cash return remains strong during the renovation period, approaching 10 percent in the second year. Once renovations are complete, the new units are expected to enable an even stronger cash-on-cash return throughout the holding period.
  • Experienced Management: The deal sponsor is an affiliate of Robbins Electra, one of the fastest growing operators in the country. The key principal of the Property, Joseph Lubeck, is CEO and Co-Manager of Robbins Electra and has executed similar business plans with aggregate deal capitalization in excess of $3 billion since 1991.

Lago Paradiso is located 20 miles southwest of Miami’s Central Business District and South Beach. This helps to strengthen the demand for the Property.

Key stats of the Miami/South Beach area:

  • Miami and South Florida is base to more than 1,100 multinational corporations, including American Airlines, Cisco, Exxon, FedEx, Microsoft, Sony, Visa and Wal-Mart.
  • The metro area has high demand as occupancy rates are 97 percent with rents increasing in the past 5 years.
  • The Property’s rent price point appeals to the middle and working class – one of the most stable tenant bases in multifamily. This base also achieves the highest rate of lease renewals. Overall, Miami ranked in the top 10 nationally for 2016 renewal rates.

Front Page PR’s team of marketing experts can help growing companies write press releases, develop online press rooms, build social media networks, plan a digital advertising program, write search engine optimized blog pages for content marketing, generate precise databases of vertical B2B media contacts, write effective media pitches, build media relationships with the management team, find trade show panels discussion for subject matter experts to speak at and harvest email addresses for carefully-tailored email marketing programs. An excellent price for a full portfolio marketing services that is hard to beat and represents one of the most cost-effective deals in the B2B marketing industry.

“One of the most challenging decisions that most small companies face is hiring their first marketing consulting firm,” said Robert Hoskins, Front Page PR’s Director of PR and Media Relations. “Regardless of whether it’s a small startup seeking to gain market traction, a small business that wants to expand their existing business operations or a large corporation that is seeking merger and acquisition partners, our team of seasoned media relations experts can help any business move mountains with words and sway public persuasion with positive trade publication and business media interviews.”

“The average rate that most PR firms charge clients is $10,000 to $20,000 per month or $60,000 to $240,000 per year. The metric or question that all firms need to measure when evaluating their PR/media relations budget is, ‘Is my PR firm capable of generating at least $1 of media publicity for every $1 I spend on their PR consulting fees?’ ” Hoskins continued. “With that said, if a company can find a PR firm that can generate a 300% return-on-investment (ROI) for a budget of $60,000 per year, that’s equivalent to hiring three professional, seasoned marketing professionals, and/or receiving a minimum of $300,000 in positive, credible media exposure. Not many firms can deliver on this expectation, but our team can.”

New backcountry-inspired startup Zenbivy launches Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to breath life into its flagship product, the Zenbivy Bed, to provide comfort for backpackers and outdoor enthusiasts

“Our design goal with the Zenbivy Bed is to combine the warmth and weight of a mummy bag with the ability to sleep in the same positions that you do at home. Mummy bags restrict your movement which can reduce your quality of sleep. The Zenbivy Bed allows for free movement like your bed at home, while maintaining thermal efficiency,” said Michael Glavin, Zenbivy’s deigner, who has led teams at Sierra Designs, GSI, and MSR that have won 11 Backpacker Magazine Editors’ Choice Awards.

Glavin added, “Through our Kickstarter campaign we aspire to connect and engage with numerous communities to introduce them to the brand and join the Zenbivy family, while harnessing support to bring the product to market.”

The Zenbivy Bed is disrupting the conventional way of sleeping outdoors by bringing you freestyle sleeping – a revolutionary system that meshes comfort over a wide temperature range, natural freedom of movement, and high-quality materials to deliver an experience that’s as close as possible to a good night’s sleep at home. Because it’s warm and light like a mummy bag, you can sleep comfortably anywhere – from couch-surfing to the deepest backcountry. And, when you know you have a warm, comfortable spot to spend the night, you will get enjoy a long night rest that will supercharge you to have more fun the next day.

A game-changer in the sleeping bag market, the Zenbivy Bed is designed on the foundation of comfort and moves with you when you want to move, while eliminating the chance for any draft between baffles with its innovative overlapping construction.

The two-piece design features a unique comforter that lies on top of a fitted-sheet and zips into place on top, rather than on the edges – freeing the quilt to spread out or wrap snugly around you without restriction.

So, regardless if you sleep on your stomach, back, or side, the Zenbivy Bed lets you move naturally and effortlessly for a better sleep experience during your adventures – from under the stars in the backcountry to car camping and family road trips.
