EvaPure sanitizes the air around you anywhere you go

The arrival of the coronavirus has changed a lot of things in the world, but perhaps the most surprising is just how difficult it is to find cleaning products these days. EvaPolar hopes to change this with the introduction of the EvaPure, a personal air sanitizer that is hand-sized and purifies the air around you. EvaPolar has launched an Indiegogo campaign with a goal of $40,000 in order to begin mass production by October.

The EvaPure is designed to be carried with you and its features are built around this purpose. The device is quiet enough to be used at your table at a coffee shop without disturbing others around you. It also has impressive battery life, with an estimated 48 hours of use on a single charge.

In early tests, the EvaPure is said to have eliminated 92% of microorganisms in the air after just one hour of use. It also generates enough O2 to account for 1% of the average human’s daily oxygen consumption, or enough to compensate for oxygen loss in a crowded room.

In addition to sanitizing the air around you, the EvaPure works as a spray cleaner. It needs only a glass of tap water and a single tablet to create a cleaning spray that will sanitize your work surfaces. The device has only two buttons: One that sprays a disinfecting spray, and another that activates the air purifier.

EvaPolar says the EvaPure takes only an hour to charge via a USB port. In a world where people are more concerned with hygiene and cleanliness than ever before, the EvaPure could be a great device to keep in your backpack. It looks like it can easily clean a tabletop or your seat on public transport.

As always, be aware that committing funds to a crowdfunding campaign is not a guarantee of production or delivery. If you are interested in checking out the EvaPure, the basic contribution level is $69 and includes a single EvaPure device as well as the necessary tablets and accessories. If you’re interested in picking up more than one, there is a $189 level that comes with two EvaPure devices and accessories. If the production timeline is met, the EvaPure is slated to begin shipping in December.

What is IFTTT and how can you use it in your smart home?
A bunch of colorful shapes on a black background.

If you've spent any time shopping for smart home gadgets, you've probably noticed that many are built with support for Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home. These are smart home platforms, and they let you access all your devices through a single app or interface. You've probably also noticed support for something known as IFTTT. But what exactly is IFTTT? And is it something you should be concerned with? Here's a closer look at the unique (and incredibly useful) software.
What is IFTTT?

IFTTT stands for, "if this, then that." It's terminology often used in programming, allowing software to chain together functions and perform certain tasks if other tasks are detected. For example, if the user inputs the incorrect password, then they'll be notified to try logging in again.

Mila reveals a sleek new humidifier/air purifier combo at CES 2024

Mila -- an air purification company -- debuted two new products at CES 2024, both geared towards enhancing your indoor environment and improving the air you breathe. Products on display included the Mila Air 3 and Mila Halo, though the team also offered a look at Mila Insights, a new set of reports that give you an in-depth look at your air quality and how it can be improved.

The Mila Halo is the more intriguing of the two, as it's both a humidifier and air purifier packed into a single unit. Along with outer panels that are fully customizable (allowing you to find a color or pattern that fits your home décor), it can detect when your room is unoccupied to turn off its water tank. Not only will that prevent over-humidification, but it should allow each tank to last longer before needing a refill.

When it comes to keeping your floors clean, robot vacuums and cordless vacuums are among the best products you can buy. Robot vacuums have become increasingly popular over the past few years -- thanks to premium models like the Ecovacs X2 Omni and Roborock S8 Pro Ultra -- but cordless vacuums offer plenty of advantages over their robotic counterparts.

Deciding between the two isn't easy, and thankfully, it's hard to make a wrong decision. Both are well-equipped to clean your floors, but there are some big trade-offs you'll have to make for each class. So, which is better? Robot vacuums or cordless vacuums?
