Gadget and Samsung are giving away a Samsung Virus Doctor air conditioner, designed to keep your home’s air free of viruses. To enter, follow Gadget and Samsung South Africa on Twitter and tell us what technology eliminates airborne viruses.
The Samsung Virus Doctor air conditioner is the best way to protect ourselves against airborne diseases, defeating the cause of airborne illnesses effectively. The British Allergy Foundation (BAF) has approved S-Plasma ion’s efficacy in the elimination of allergens.
S-Plasma ion technology generates negative (-) ions only, which function to eliminate airborne viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, allergens as well as neutralise the harmful active oxygen (OH Radical) for cleaner and healthier indoor air quality. OH-radical can also cause aging and skin diseases.
According to the study by Hiroshima University, the active oxygen concentration level gets decreased significantly by the S-Plasma ion generating active hydrogen atom (H) which reacts to the active oxygen (OH-radical) to form a water molecule.
Another forte of Samsung Virus Doctor is that is has its own intuitive interface so you do not have to learn how to use it by reading manuals. With a slight touch, it immediately starts to work for your healthier atmosphere.

CES: ThirdEye X2 mixed-reality glasses
The X2 mixed reality (MR) glasses, unveiled at CES last week, are the smallest mixed reality devices yet. They boast a 42-degree field of view, HD resolution, and run on the Android platform. The glasses are not connected to wires or tethered packs, and boast a built-in VisionEye Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) system for accurate environment tracking. The UI allows the user to wear it while completing tasks indoors and outdoors.
Click through to read how the software makes these glasses a reality.
Nick Cherukuri, founder of ThirdEye, said: “The goal of the X2 was to integrate SLAM into a small glasses form factor – that is the future of making MR Glasses mass produced.”
ThirdEye has also partnered with a major manufacturer, which will enable the X2 to be shipped in mass scale, which is currently a significant hurdle for many startups.
The glasses have built-in software like the ThirdEye App Suite, which provides a full MR software platform built into the units. The App Suite includes live audio and video streaming, AR data communication between remote users in the form of a “see what I see” application, and 3D scanning capabilities. The glasses run on Android 8.0, creating a platform for a worldwide community of developers to submit AR, VR, and MR applications to the ThirdEye App Store.
