Philips, or should we say WOOX Innovations, is taking their audio and video products very seriously. It has unveiled the 2015 Philips Fidelio range of audio products, that promised to take sound excellence to the next level, onboard the luxurious Pink Lady Yacht on January 29, 2015 (we are still feeling sore for missing it) in Singapore. In case you aren’t familiar WOOX is a Gibson Brands company and the brand licensee of Royal Philips, and hence the mention of its name here. The products revealed include four Fidelio headphones and a wireless soundbar. Under the headphones range, it touts a pair of Bluetooth cans (M2BT), a pair optimized for Lightning connector (M2L), one that’s equipped with Layered Motion Control diaphragm (X2), and last but not the least, the first Fidelio audio cans with Active Noise Cancellation (NC1). Somehow, it feels like the soundbar is a bit of a filler to this launch, but we will get to that later. Continue reading Philips Unveils Fidelio Headphones and Soundbar for 2015 in Singapore

there are various reasons why some people cannot move away from incandescent light bulbs. incandescent, though an electricity guzzler, offers warm that no modern day, energy-saving LED bulb can replace and has an endearing shape that makes a good classy decor element. however, that is set to change with the Philips Clear LED Bulb, a light bulb that not only replicates the warm of a 40W incandescent light bulb, but also retains the classic light bulb design too – the familiar A60 shape found on 40W incandescent light bulbs. the design of the bulb allows 470 lumens of brightness to shine through in all directions and stays as clear and bright as a 40W bulb even when it is dimmed.

we always talk about having more vegetation and farming to balance the concrete jungle, but one thing we may have looked past is pollination, which bees have been doing for us. urbanization drives the bees out and hence, flowers will not strive in cities. with this in mind, Philips came up with the Urban Beehive concept that is designed to entice the bees back into the cities. the Urban Beehive will allow virtually anyone to become a bee farmer, i mean, bee keeper, whether they are living in apartments or houses. this futuristic pod comprises of two parts: an entry passage for the bees on the flower pot and a glass vessel containing an array of honeycomb frames within. the glass is purposefully orange, allowing light to pass through forming orange wavelength within the glass vessel which, apparently, is what bees use for sight.

apparently, hitting the snooze button is bad for you and it is in fact, according to Philips, more than just a sleep disruptor and by snoozing, we, the snooze lovers, are actually encouraging other undesirable habits that detract us from a smooth morning routine. really? i wasn’t aware that a simple snooze would have such a profound effect. to counter this snoozing habit, the Netherlands electronics giant wants you to use this sunrise simulating Philips Wake-up Light (HF3500 and HF3505), which is clinically proven to improve a person’s ability to function in the morning. what the Philips Wake-up Light does is, it simulates a natural sunrise by slowly increasing the brightness half an hour before the alarm kicks in and by doing so, it is actually allowing your body to gently transit from sleep to waking up, thereby creating a more natural and energizing way of getting out of bed.

it used to be, a party at the beach or anywhere outside of your pad can be achieved by a boombox over your shoulder and a couple of mix tapes. that was when Flash Dance was a hit and before college kids started huddling into giant speakers-rigged house. well, it looks like the tide is going to change again, but this time boombox and mix tapes aren’t in the equation – in their place would be this sleek Philips x Armin van Buuren M1X-DJ Sound System introduced at the recent IFA. the M1X-DJ is a DJ controller and a sound system rolled into one, offering features like Apple Lightning connector, Bluetooth connectivity, supports for Alogriddim djay 2 app, 80 watts of power output, and most importantly, an integrated DJ controller for mixing and scratching your mixes with two professional-grade platters, complete with cross faders and controls.

remember Philips hue? the smartphone-controllable, web-enabled LED home lighting system? well, it now has a couple of friends joining it and they are the LivingColors Bloom and LightStrips – collectively (and very aptly) known as Philips Friends of hue. the Philips Friends of hue takes your light show from beyond the ceiling to the wall and under your corridor arch, bed, sofa and more. the LivingColors Bloom is much like a desk lamp, except instead of glowing light, it casts a wall of light to highlight your furniture and decorative pieces or just simply turns an otherwise plain white wall into a wall of light. as for the LightStrips, it takes on a more discreet approach; it is a 12W LED light in a form of a 2m flexible light strip that can be cut to size to suit your furniture.

bezel-less design may not be all that practical for handheld touchscreen devices (we all know why, don’t we?), but it certainly makes a lot of aesthetic sense for HDTVs. surprisingly, even with the obsession with thinning bezel, today’s HDTVs still have them – until now. though we wouldn’t say the Philips DesignLine LED HDTV is completely frameless, but at least it doesn’t have any visible when the TV is turned off. when it is not presenting you with glorious full HD visuals, what you see is merely a piece of gorgeous glass and thanks to its ingenious design, it can be hung on the wall, stand on itself or lean against the wall like an exquisite art piece.
