Now this is one hell of a contrivance. Who wouldn’t wanna be welcomed with flashbulbs and arc lights? But when at home we can replace the arc lights by our normal bulbs in either case a welcome it is. You can count on us for this one that every time you walk into your room the lights will go on and welcome you. And who wouldn’t like that kind of a reception. Now a little more dope on what this exactly is. It’s a very simple system to use as the motion sensor attaches directly to the light bulb. To set it up all you have to do is screw the motion-sensor into the light socket, then plug the light bulb into the motion sensor! You then don’t need to control the lights with light switches anymore as the fixture does it for you! The sensor is very well designed and appears just like a normal fixture. It features a full 360° field-of-view so no matter where you enter the room from you should be automatically greeted by light. It also has a 12′ range so it could cover most sized rooms. The light then stays on for 4 minutes after it detects the last motion.
Over the time the simple washing machine has evolved into a high tech computer controlled washing machine with fuzzy logic and a dryer. Toshiba takes it a step further with the TW-2500VC which is a washer-dryer with an air conditioner. It uses just 20 % of the water used by traditional washing machines. It is the drying part where the air conditioner comes into action, instead of blasting with hot air at 100 degrees it first dehumidifies the compartment by blowing cold air and then blasts the clothes with hot air at 70 degrees because of which the clothes wont shrink and in absence of moisture the clothes dry completely. The cold air is then dissipitated in the surroundings however the main reason is that the cold air prevents the growth of mold and other harmful fungus in the space where the machine sits.
