EcoKettle – Kettle of the future


With traditional electrical kettles, there is tremendous wastage of electrical energy, water, time and of course, your money. You know how it is – you arrive home, dying of thirst and just can’t wait for a nice cup of tea or a hit of instant coffee to revive you. You grab the kettle, flip on the tap and guess how much water you’ll need. Sometimes you get it spot on, but mostly you either don’t put in enough water so you end up with a tiny half-cup of tea or coffee and have to re-boil… or you overfill it and you leave boiled water in the kettle – water that has cost you money to boil (and it really adds up!), water that you’ve had to wait and wait for it to boil, and water that is lost – boiled away and wasted unneccessarily.

Now you have a great new alternative, an energy-saving kettle which you can fill to the brim, and move the simple measuring button so that it boils 1 cup, 2 cups, 3 cups, 4 cups of water or whatever you need!!

Here’s a rundown of how it works.

Waterless Washing Machine Developed

Singapore – A waterless washing machine that removes stains from garments in a few minutes has been developed at the National University of Singapore, the facility said on Wednesday.

The appliance uses negative ions, compressed air and deodorants to clean clothes.

Industrial design students Wendy Chua, 21, and Gabriel Tan, 23, said they were inspired by the technology in air purifiers, which uses negative ions to clump dirt and bacteria, making it easier for the particles to be sucked out. The ions are a natural cleaning agent.

The sleek and compact design is modelled after a waterfall, a natural negative ion generator.

It does away with the expensive task of sending clothing to be dry cleaned and protects favourite garments, said Chua. No detergents are used.

“It’s not meant to replace the traditional washing machine, but it’s more a hybrid of the washing machine and the dry cleaner,” The Straits Times quoted Chua as saying.
