Just recently, the 4K Ultra Short Throw Laser Projector, AURA, won the 2022-2023 EISA Award for best product in the category. Simply put, AURA revolutionizes the home cinematic experience.

This makes AURA the perfect (laser) TV for each living room. 

Last year, the HORIZON Pro also received the EISA Award. It continues XGIMI’s success in leading the industry in immersive, plug-and-play home cinematic projectors. The HORIZON Pro is a versatile, easy-to-use 4K projector.

Meaco — choosing the right fan

Meaco fanAfter yet another summer of record breaking temperatures across Europe, the Award-winning MeacoFans are the best solution to cool you down in a heatwave. These fans are specially designed to create a more comfortable environment during the heat. What you should look out for when buying a fan: 

Awards

Has the fan been recognised for low noise, low energy or manufacturing quality? Our MeacoFans have been recognised and highly rated by Which?, Quiet Mark, Good Housekeeping Institute, and Stiftung Warentest and have been highly rated by all of these trusted organisations.

Low noise

When you compare MeacoFans with others on the market, the noise level is low. For a similar cooling experience, our fans are a lot quieter and cost less to use per hour than other fans. In their low fan speed settings, all our fans are between 20 to 30 dB – about the same sound intensity as a whisper.

Low Energy Cooling

The price is always a driving factor in which fan you choose, but we recommend that consumers look beyond this. What might seem a good deal, could result in higher running costs overall. That’s why we encourage our customers to check whether their fan is powered by AC/DC. 

On highest fan speed our MeacoFan 1056 and 1056P have an approximate electricity cost of less than 0,8cents/hour based on 34,64cents/kWh. So if you used your fan for 12 hours a day from the months of May to September, you would save circa 70% in electricity over a standard AC fan over the summer!

Yubico makes internet safer and accessible

Yubico was founded with one core mission in mind – secure the internet by making it safer and accessible for everyone. Since 2007, the company has been a pioneer and leader in setting new open authentication standards that could be freely implemented and utilized by every service, browser, and operating system on a global scale. The FIDO U2F, FIDO2, and WebAuthn open standards are a culmination of this work, and are now the leading technologies responsible for redefining internet security for all with the introduction of phishing-resistant authentication.

Yubico’s core product, the YubiKey, is the gold standard for multi-factor authentication and works out-of-the-box to secure hundreds of consumer and enterprise applications and services. Today, the strongest form of account protection — on mobile and otherwise — is offered by hardware security keys and is the only form of authentication that provides the best defense against phishing.

In October 2021, Yubico released two new security keys: The YubiKey Bio – FIDO Edition and the Security Key C NFC. The YubiKey Bio is Yubico’s first-ever biometric-supporting physical key designed to protect users’ accounts from being hacked. The YubiKey Bio Series is available for purchase for $80 for the USB-A form-factor and $85 for the USB-C form-factor. The Security Key C NFC offers FIDO-only support in a USB-C form factor with NFC capabilities. It provides enhanced, modern security and is available for purchase today for $29.
