  1. Seems like everyone is using campaigns like Kickstarter to fund their projects. We think this campaign is pretty cool. The Alima Smart Indoor Air Quality Monitor is expected to come out this fall after its creators reached their fundraising goal. It’s an environmental sensor which detects benzene, formaldehyde, ethylene glycol, carbon monoxide, acetone, carbon dioxide, temperature and relative humidity. It also tracks your environmental habits, locates pollutant sources and offers suggestions to help improve indoor air quality via an iOS or Android app. Read more about Alima .
  2. The Leviton Humidity Sensor and Fan Control detects excess humidity and activates a fan to reduce condensation levels. The sensor’s state-of-the-art technology works to continually monitor room air and automatically turns on the fan whenever it detects a certain humidity level. The product retails for under $40. Read more about the Leviton Humidity Sensor and Fan Control .
  3. Unlike most conventional dishwashers where water only partially sprays the dishes, Samsung’s WaterWall technology offers 100% coverage. Samsung unveiled its new dishwasher, the DW80H9970, earlier this year at CES 2014. It features Samsung’s innovative WaterWall technology. Most dishwashers use a rotary sprayer located on the dishwasher bottom. WaterWall uses a sprayer that sweeps back and forth, providing corner-to-corner cleaning, resulting in a more effective cleaning process to thoroughly clean your dishes. Read more about the DW80H9970 , and watch a video to see it in action.
  4. Other products unveiled at CES 2014 include Samsung’s new high-capacity washers and dryers. The front-load washer (WF9000) and the front-load dryer (DF9000), offer capacity sizes large enough to wash and dry two king-size comforters. The washer has a technology called SuperSpeed that cuts washing time down to 30 minutes. A PowerFoam feature dissolves detergent before the cleaning cycle to wash clothes more effectively by spreading it out evenly among clothes. Both the washer and dryer have LEDs in the drums so you can see better. Read more about the washer/dryer pair’s release.
  5. Cleaning robots have been around since as early as 2002 when iRobot released the Roomba . iRobot has evolved its product over the years making it more precise and powerful, and creating other products that mop floors or clean pools. Other manufacturers have followed suit and created similar products. Neato Robotics  robotic vacuum cleaner uses a laser to scan the room and intelligently clean it. Even newer to the robot cleaning scene is Moneual’s Rydis H68 Hybrid Robot  which dry vacuums and wet mops. It has a mapping technology to take an image of the ceiling and outline the room, ensuring it cleans every corner. You’ll find the newest robotic cleaners to be smarter, quieter and more effective than earlier models.
