UnlimitedHand now fully compatible with the Arduino IDE

MUNICH, Germany, 08-Feb-2017 — /EPR ELECTRONIC NEWS/ — UnlimitedHand has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Wearable Technologies Innovation World Cup (WT2017). It is an occasion where the latest research and gadgets are showcased amongst global professionals active in the field of wearable technology. This will be the first time we exhibit UnlimitedHand in Europe. We hope to take this chance to spread the news of a forth coming breakthrough in Virtual Reality, one where you will find yourself touching and feeling objects from the virtual world.

Last year, technical bricolage in the field of VR peripheries has been over-shadowed by the introduction of consumer Head Mounted Displays (HMD). Yet there is dire need for elevated levels of realism amongst avid gamers. VR peripheries are being weaved together in various combinations to achieve immersive experiences that one can be content with. This year, we look to contribute to the acceleration of this trend by making our products available to a wider audience. Catch our CEO Ken Iwasaki as he gives a presentation on the prospects of a haptic-enabled Virtual Reality.

Partnership with Arduino AtHeart
This month, Arduino has officially licensed UnlimitedHand as an atHeart product. This means that UnlimitedHand, as a open-source ready product, is fully compatible with the Arduino IDE. UnlimitedHand also complies with Arduino’s high hardware standards. Arduino, with their commitment to open-source, has reached out with their technology to muster a great force of makers and inventors. This omni-present community has no doubt supported us in many ways during the development of UnlimitedHand. By joining the program, we can now present our results back to the community. In line with the spirit of Arduino, our team of technicians has been working on software and API (UHDeviceManager) that would create a seamless hacking environment. Developers who have never experimented with haptics too, would be able to quickly jump in to building applications.

Sesame Smart Lock Accommodates New Technology

Palo Alto, CA, April 21, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – is now one of the hottest projects on Kickstarter, which has raised more than one million dollars since launch. Currently, more than 6,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Jerming Gu, the inventor of Sesame, said he wanted to bring the joy of technology to regular people with affordable prices. Sesame is also designed to accommodate the fast changing nature of technology.

In deed, the consumer electronics technology changes year by year. Any users of consumer electronic products – whether it’s a lock or a phone – they will be forced to upgrade the hardware often.

Here are some examples:
1) iPhone 4 (Bluetooth 3.0) is not compatible with iPhone 4S (Bluetooth 4.0);
2) RFID (clipper bus card) is not compatible with NFC (Apple Pay/some credit card);
3) z-wave (most old digital locks) is not compatible with Zigbee (newer digital locks);

“You might want to have a new phone every year but you may not want to construct the door every year just for a newer digital lock,” said Gu.

That’s the problem Sesame is trying to solve.

Now Bluetooth 4.2 is coming, Gu just swapped to the new version 3 Bluetooth chip in mass production.

“Also, the long-distance wireless charging technology is about to hit the market, I feel everything is changing too fast,” said Gu.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

About CANDY HOUSE
Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

Smart Magnetic Mounts Power your iPhone, iPad, Android on the Go!

SUNNYVALE, CA, January 06, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — With a $25,000 initial goal for the development of MagTarget Wireless Charging System for iPhones, iPads and Android, MagTarget LLC has launched a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo. “In order to keep your devices charged throughout the day, we’ve designed a series of docks with a smart magnetic interface to hold and connect your phone to all common areas of one’s life such as the car, home and office.” said Jean-Michel Thiers, CEO of MagTarget. “It’s so simple in its design and yet outperforms all the more complicated wireless chargers currently on the market.”

Wireless charging is not new, but current systems are not designed for convenient use throughout the day. MagTarget’s wireless magnetic power docks merge the worlds of wireless chargers and mounts into a simple solution. The patent pending magnetic charging system allows simple touch-to-charge and the flexible design of the mounts provide endless powers on the go! MagTarget also offer wire-free USB connectivity to perform tasks such as downloading photos or using your device as an external drive, without having to pull out a wire. To provide the best user facing experience possible the docks are fully adjustable and allow the phone to rotate from portrait to landscape while still maintaining electrical connectivity. When installed in the car the MagTarget dock can alleviate the fear of running out of power while using the phone’s GPS. Powerful magnets keep the phone in place while driving or biking around town. In fact the current lineup of MagTarget mounts provides twelve pounds of pull force to hold the five ounce iPhone in place. This holding force is focused on the center of mass of the phone with makes it easy to disconnect with a simple twist.

MagTarget works with all iPhones/iPads and Android/Windows phones/tablets that have the charging port at the center bottom (which covers the majority of devices). Users can place MagTarget directly on the device or on their favorite case. The patent pending design also has a standard camera mount on the bottom (1/4-20). This allows the use of a whole array of other mounts from suction cups to tripods and everything in between. In addition, MagTarget will be offering its technology, on the device side, free of any license fees via an Open-Source setting. This will allow other manufacturers, in addition to MagTarget, to design cases to cover upcoming devices.

Electrical Counter Has Fantasia’s For Lifting The Dimmer Control

The Electrical Counter has aimed to build a portfolio of products that deal with all the possible electrical requirements that occur in the modern electrical supply market. This has meant ranges of products, which are specific to a specific usage, are used and then installed and not something that may just do the job. The Electrical Counter has also tried to source these specific products in a range of finishes so that the consumer can get something that does the job but also fits in architecturally with the building and surrounds of the installation.

Fantasia is a company that has developed a series of ceiling fans which are great in situ and have developed a very smart brushed chrome speed controller that is perfect for the overall control of the unit. The Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to supply these brushed chrome controllers and the full range of Fantasia ceiling fans. The ceiling fan is an ideal option to reduce the temperature in any room when a full air conditioning system is either, not available, or not possible to install. It is also a great fashion statement and gives the room a feel of the Deep South of the U S A. There are a multitude of different designs of the fans some of which include a light fitting and some which do not, there is also a full range of different designs and differing materials of manufacture so it is a case of picking the one that fits the personal design required.

The switch and controllers of such fans are very important as they require a stepped speed controller in order to provide a cooling which is in keeping with the rooms requirements. The Electrical Counter stresses that the control of ceiling fans must be carried out using the correct type of controller and not a standard dimmer switch, which are totally unsuitable for the job. To this purpose The Electrical Counter are pleased to supply the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and also the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and Light Dimmer both of which are supplied in a brushed Chrome finish. These units are very attractive and really fit in to most rooms in the house. The brushed chrome finish is one, which fits both modern and old buildings and will look good throughout all the rooms, which it is likely to be used in.

The Electrical Counter notes that the Fantasia Fan Controller uses a 3 step system, which should provide more than adequate control of the ceiling fan. The brushed chrome switches provide an easy circular action and fit nicely on a brushed chrome face plate, it is noted that the rule is one fan per controller and the fans cannot be ganged together. The twin switch which also has a dimmer switch attached allows control of the fan and the lights from a central control. Electrical Counter offers a full range of products and is pleased to offer any advice required for the purposes of installing the Fantasia range of products.

Lamp Post Electrical Supply The Best Of Stainless Steel Electrical Fittings

Lamp Post Electrical are pleased to supply electrical fitting of every shape and requirement for the electrical market place but it is particularly pleased to be able to supply the Nexus range of stainless steel switches and sockets for the household and commercial building electrical supply fittings. Stainless steel has many advantages over other materials and the Nexus range has given Lamp Post Electrical one of the best looking as well as one of the highest quality ranges of electrical fittings on the market today. The electrical engineer can be very happy to work with this range as it produces an excellent finish wherever it is used and they can be assured that the electrical integrity of the usage will be the typical top quality product produced by the Nexus range. The Nexus range of electrical switches and sockets are produced by BG which is one of the best United Kingdom manufacturers of electrical goods in the World with a history that goes back a long way. It is this vast experience that has produced such a fine range of electrical equipment for installation on a new build or a rewire of an existing building.

Lamp Post Electrical is also pleased to note the stainless steel range of Nexus electrical switches and sockets comes under the decorative range of electrical equipment and that this statement alone shows a change that has occurred over the past few years in the field of electrical fittings. The change to decorative fittings has come about with the ability to make metal clad switches and sockets securely and safely without any fear of electrocution or electrical shock. Up until this time the amount of decorative switches and sockets in comparison to the standard safety insulated switch or socket was very small, but now there is a vast array of electrical decorative fittings and there are very many more options open to the end user. Invariably in time gone by the only times electrical switches were changed was on a rewire operation but now Lamp Post Electrical notes that it is quite usual for a change of all electrical switches and sockets to be made throughout the building on a purely decorative or design change in the appearance of the building. This is driven heavily by interior design magazines and TV.

Lamp Post Electrical is delighted with the appearance of the Nexus Stainless Steel range of equipment, which has a sleek finish with a very slim stainless cover with rounded corners. All switches are of the typical metal faced, insulated rocker design but the rocker is a gently curved design, which looks good and operates efficiently and provides no opportunity of any ligature. The advantage of this range is that it can be used in a residential or commercial operation and will look equally good in both. Lamp Post Electrical – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – is pleased to note that at the present time the price of this range of electrical fittings is very low and the prices for a complete change of electrical switches and sockets throughout a property is quite affordable.

MK Electric Gives The Ultimate Consumer Unit Design

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies have built an excellent business by supplying first class electrical equipment, which will completely fit their customers requirements. This has been carried out by using manufacturers who not only supply excellent quality products but also supply good technical advice on the product and its usage. MK Electric is one supplier that fits all these requirements and they are able to supply some of the best consumer units on the market to the exact specification required by the customer.

One example is a standard consumer unit in the MK Electric range which is supplied by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies and this is the MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit with basically a 16 way dual RCD (Residual Current Device) set up. This unit can easily be supplied as a single consumer unit with MCB (Mini Circuit Breakers) chosen by the electrician or Lamp Post and MK can supply the advice for the complete specification. If Lamp Post are given the specification MK will design the consumer unit to meet that specification and build it especially within the day for supply by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies the next day. The consumer unit normally requires tailoring to the needs of each individual residence and whilst there are ways in which this can be done just to cover the regulations there are a great number of advantages in setting the systems so that they meet the users exact requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can supply excellent advice along with a full range of equipment in the MK Electric Consumer unit range and they are proud to represent one of the major manufacturers of the electrical protection and power distribution systems. The MK K7666SP 17th edition consumer unit is a basic unit but the consumer unit can be used as a standard system with a dual RCD protection system covering a full range of MCBs but it is often better if some of the outlets are covered in different ways and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can assist with all the requirements.

There is a superb range of MK Electric RCD systems that range from block units to individual circuit units. There are a range of RCBO units which usually control just one circuit. This is ideal for consumer units where the household or office want total protection but it really is essential for the individual circuits, which provide power to the safety or certain essential services. This is usually circuits such as fire and burglar alarms and equipment like freezers and refrigerators, which require secure power supplies wherever possible. There are RCBOs which can turn off with say a power cut and not turn back on when power is restored but in most cases these should be avoided in favour of the type that restore power to the circuit when power returns. There is also a range of DIN rail mounted time switches that can be fitted to meet specific remote power requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies is pleased to supply any of the MK range and if the item is not on the web site an email or a telephone call will resolve the problem.
