Haier is displaying its Smart Living internet-connected appliances at the CES show, opening today in Las Vegas and running through January 11.
Smart Living refrigerators, washing machines, and air-conditioners let users retrieve information and control the appliances from anywhere. The system includes home appliance controls, lighting and curtain controls, multimedia entertainment, security alarm monitoring, and other features to make for a full wireless home control system.
Haier will also showcase the world's first cordless blender. Haier explained that "electricity is transmitted using coupling technology, allowing the blender to remotely receive energy without any wires." The user places a transmitter underneath a kitchen worktop, allowing energy to be transferred to the mixer through the worktop.
"CES 2013 is a tremendous showcase for Haier, as the world's number one appliance brand and one of just a handful of companies that can display both electronics and major appliances," said Shariff Kan, president, Haier America. "CES will allow us to highlight key new products, but also solidify our core belief in simplifying the user experience when it comes to technology."
