RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a leader in home appliance innovations, today announced the availability of its new robot vacuum, the POWERbot Turbo, which takes extreme cleaning to new levels with the world’s most powerful suction among robot vacuums*. The holiday entertaining season will be less of an undertaking with the intuitive power of a robot cleaning helper at your command. With a multitude of smart and intuitive features packed into a sleek, floor hugging machine, Samsung’s POWERbot Turbo offers an impressive mix of technological sophistication and stylish design. “Homeowners have told us again and again that one of their biggest challenges is keeping their homes clean and getting rid of the floor dirt and dust which never seems to go away,” said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances at Samsung. “With holiday guests about to visit, you’ll need all the help you can get and the solution is pretty simple and practical: use as much strong and targeted vacuum suction power as possible. The POWERbot Turbo provides levels of performance that no other robot vacuum can match. And it joins a line of other POWERbot products that are your essential and powerful partners for a dirt- and dust-free home.” Setting a Smart New Bar in Cleaning Power and Precision In 2014, Samsung first introduced the POWERbot robot vacuum line, which offered unprecedented cleaning power and precision. It was an immediate hit that transformed the floor cleaning experience and set a new bar for convenience and performance. The new POWERbot Turbo amps up the level of suction, Wi-Fi control and convenience, banishing hard-to-vacuum dirt and other objects that have always been frustrating to pick up. With 70 times more powerful suction than the leading robot vacuum brand1, the Samsung POWERbot Turbo is the world’s most powerful model among robot vacuums– and one of the smartest. Its Smart Control Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to remotely guide the movement of your vacuum using your smartphone. The “Select & Go™” feature creates a virtual map of your home on your smartphone app, letting you select specific areas or rooms that may need cleaning. There is even an extra convenience of voice-controlled vacuuming on demand through Amazon Alexa. With an enhanced visual mapping system that can literally “see” its way around your home, the POWERbot Turbo robot vacuum delivers the ultimate clean, all without lifting a finger. The Visionary Mapping™ Plus System literally creates a map of your home that includes hard-to-reach corners with the use of high performance computer chips, more than 10 sensors and a digital camera. As it cleans, the vacuum stores this map as a Digital Floorplan® that is accessed by the Select & Go™ feature. Be it dust, debris or dirt, nothing is safe from the POWERbot Turbo’s clutches as it glides along the floor. An upgraded, high-performance FullView Sensor™ acts as the robot’s eyes, detecting every narrow and small obstacle and avoiding obstacles like furniture, walls and stairways. The extreme suction power is coupled with CycloneForce™, an efficient dust separation system that uses strong centrifugal forces to provide more consistent power with less clogging2. For even more cleaning convenience, Point Cleaning™ uses a remote control to allow you to shine a light beam to a desired location on the floor, which the vacuum follows cleaning as it moves. Superior cleaning with POWERbot Turbo is also assured with a high quality enlarged drum brush which cleans a much wider area with no need for side brushes. Measuring just 14.8 inches in width, 14.3 inches in depth and 5.3 inches in height, the POWERbot Turbo packs a lot of innovation into its cleverly designed robust frame and sophisticated LED interface. An attractive and functional front conceals an enlarged Combo Brush, whose combination of soft and hard bristles along with a rubber blade pick up even the finest pet hair with fewer tangles, while also sweeping up larger crumbs and debris. The top of the vacuum features a transparent CycloneForce compartment with a clear window to see the amount of dirt collected, which can easily detach to empty the dirt into the trash can. Large Easy Pass™ wheels on the wings of the vacuum allow it to move freely and efficiently around the floor, from room to room, easily navigating different floor surfaces and bypassing wires and door frames. The POWERbot Turbo (model: VR9350) is available now at major retailers nationwide and online at Samsung.com for suggested retail price of $1,199.

Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni today announced that “Donald Trump,” portrayed by professional actor and impersonator extraordinaire, John Di Domenico, will delight SEMA Show attendees as he imitates the colorful U.S. presidential candidate. Di Domenico will appear at the Stertil-Koni booth #10527 (North Hall) at the annual automotive trade show in the Las Vegas Convention Center, 3150 Paradise Road, November 2 -3, giving a final "lift" to excitement surrounding the presidential campaign one week prior to the general election. Di Domenico has been delighting fans of all political affiliations for many years with his “oh my goodness, he is amazing,” likeness of the actual live candidate. With one of the most passionately contested elections in American history in the balance, Di Domenico's persona will visit Trump’s beloved Las Vegas and the SEMA Show, where ingenuity, fresh products and winning is the norm. The Trump impersonator has made a career out of analyzing the presidential candidate and reality show mogul's voice and character: “I've got the hottest brand in the world,” Di Domenico says, and the results prove it. Di Domenico has been featured on CNN, Conan O’Brien, Fox News, and is a popular draw at corporate events. Stertil-Koni has one key word for the event: “Fantastic!” The world’s most talked about “presidential candidate” impersonator will step up to the podium at Stertil-Koni’s booth #10527 in the North Hall, replete with a faux Presidential Seal and framed by two (not one) American flags. Di Domenico will be available for photographs after his remarks. Show attendees will be shocked, amused and delighted by the actor’s portrayal of one of America’s most colorful characters. “In the midst of a serious presidential election, we have brought the very likeness of the self-proclaimed winner to lift our spirits at the SEMA Show. If you see John Di Domenico, you'd think you were listening to ‘The Donald,’” notes Stertil-Koni President, Dr. Jean DellAmore. “Innovation, safety and Stertil-Koni go hand-in-hand, but a jolt of fun, can elevate the message.” In related SEMA Show news, Stertil-Koni will unveil its newest mobile column lift, the ST 1064, which is a full-featured lifting system at a slightly lower capacity level (14,000 lbs. per column or 56,000 lbs. for a set of four) with a more attractive price point to match. The ST 1064 is available in three models and each is equipped with the latest in mobile column lifting technology, the ebright Smart Control System, as standard. It utilizes a 7-inch color monitor to present all relevant operating information at a glance and features a user-friendly touch pad to configure options such as language as well as an ID-Key to prevent unauthorized operation. So, for some real heavy duty lifting, and pre-election fun, visit the Stertil-Koni booth #10527 in the North Hall and lift your spirits with an on-site demonstration by “Donald Trump,” as he raises the standards on heavy duty vehicle lifts. Di Domenico will be available November 2 and 3, virtually every hour on the hour.

Samsung's press conference is sure to be the hottest ticket at the Consumer Electronics Show. The Korean electronics giant, one of the few companies to draw huge crowds at its events, will kick off its press conference at 2 p.m. PT on Monday at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. CNET's David Katzmaier, Jessica Dolcourt, James Martin, and I will be on hand to bring you all the juicy details, photos, and running commentary throughout the event. Samsung isn't just the world's biggest smartphone maker but is also the largest TV seller and one of the fastest growing PC and tablet vendors. The company typically only enters markets it believes it can eventually take over. Next up for Samsung is home appliances, with the goal to be No. 1 in that market by 2015. CES marks the chance for Samsung's consumer electronics business to highlight its newest innovations. Samsung got a jump on the show, releasing some of its news before CES even started. That includes details about new TVs, including a105-inch curved 4K TV and a new Smart Controlfor its televisions. Samsung also said it will show new smart TV features, such as a fine-tuned voice interaction service and improved gestures. That's not all Samsung has in store for the living room, with many more TVs and home audio products sure to appear. Computers and tablets are another area Samsung will discuss at the show. It's believed to be launching a new 10.5-inch tablet at the show, as well as other possible computing devices. Samsung also will release new home appliances and cameras. It revealed the Galaxy Camera 2 earlier this week. One area that likely won't make a showing at CES is smartphones. Samsung unveiled theduringof last year, and it released other products at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona in February. It's likely to save most of its mobile devices for similar events this year. There could be some surprises or innovative technologies shown, though. At CES last year, Samsung dazzled the crowd with its flexible screen technology, called Youm.

Samsung Electronics will demonstrate new games and Skype group calls for its smart TVs at next month’s IFA trade show in Berlin. Manufacturers have for the last couple of years struggled to convince consumers to upgrade their TVs. Samsung, LG and Sony are betting that a growing range of applications will boost sales, coupled with 4K resolution. Samsung is adding games such as “Need for Speed: Most Wanted”, “Real Football 2014” and “Golf Star” to its line-up. Users will be able to play with Samsung’s remote Smart Control, the company’s dedicated Gamepad as well as some Galaxy smartphones and tablets. It isn’t just the TV manufacturers that are hoping games will attract consumers. When Amazon launched the Fire TV box earlier this year, gaming was a key component of the product. The same goes for Google’s upcoming Android TV platform. Samsung is trying to leverage gaming’s popularity on smartphones and tablets, and not just to make the TVs more attractive. By offering games in mobile devices and TVs, Samsung hopes to convince consumers to buy both types of devices from it. An important part of this push is also to make it easy for developers to convert their mobile games to run on TVs. For example, this weekend Amazon is hosting an event with Seattle indie game incubator HouseOgames. It’s billed as “a great opportunity” for developers to get their hands on all of Amazon’s devices and the services it offers to game developers. At IFA, Samsung will also demonstrate a new Skype app with group and full HD video calls. The Skype app and the new games will be available to download for free globally—including Europe, South Korea, and the U.S.—through the Games Panel on Samsung’s TVs, the company said without offering any details on the timing.

Samsung has outed its new Smart Control remote for its 2014 line of televisions that, in all honesty, might be a little sexier than some of its recent smartphones. The restyled remote is now Pebble-shaped, for a better grip, and has an 80 per cent smaller touchpad that remains within thumbs-reach. Naturally there's voice and motion control integration alongside the 26 buttons. If that's not enough to float your boat, there's a Soccer Mode that enhances the viewing experience with a single button. The new Smart Control remote will be on show at CES 2014 alongside the company's new flatscreens. Excited? Come on, it's ok to be excited about a remote. Oh hey, shorty! Check out these blips...

The Logic Pros is a new regular series exploring all of the most interesting gadgets and software for making music on your Mac/iOS devices. If there is any gear you would like us to take a closer hands-on look at, let us know in the comments section below or shoot us an email. In this week’s edition of The Logic Pros, we will be looking at how to map all those fun looking sliders, switches, buttons and encoders on our controllers to various functions inside of Logic Pro X. In many case, we get home with our MIDI controller, plug it in, and it just works. The keys/pads function just as they should, but the plethora of other dials and faders available generally won’t do much, unless you tell them to. We will be covering the basics of how to get our MIDI keyboard/controller mapped to just about any parameter in our session, along with a few creative ways to bring some of Logic Pro X’s more powerful features into the real world: There a number of customized controller options (some of which we will be taking a closer look at in future Logic Pros articles) that are specifically tailored to software counterparts like the Native Instruments Complete Kontrollers, or the popular Abelton Live grid controller options. While these might work great for some, with a few simple moves, we can have just about any MIDI controller communicating with Logic Pro X in a completely customized way. Nobody wants to spend time mapping controls when it comes to LPX, but we’ll just need to fire off some quick messages using Logic’s “Learn” function to make this happen, and then it’s back to the music. After making the assignments, LPX will remember your set-up and have it just as you left it every time you open another session up. Along with traditional functions like volume, mutes and solos, I also like to have permanent hardware controls for some of my favorite effects, Logic’s Channel EQ for basic filtering, third party virtual instrument macro controls, and LPX Smart Control (more on this below). As far as transport controls (play, stop, skip, etc.) go, on some devices there are dedicated buttons for any DAW that will need to be configured on the hardware itself, and in other cases we can use Key Commands. It is also a good idea to check with the manufacturer to see if they have a Logic Pro X map that can be downloaded. Combining/adding-to a pre-made map using the steps below can be a great way to get started: Note: while every mapping assignment we make below can be altered at a later date with ease, it’s always a good idea to take some time think about what functions you use most and which hardware controllers you would prefer them on. I always like to leave a few open so that I can make assignments on-the-fly based on a particular creative situation. 1. First let’s open up Logic’s Controller Assignments window (shift + alt + K, or Logic Pro X > Control Surfaces >…..). 2. From here, we have two options: Easy View and Expert View. First, let’s pop over to Expert View by hitting the tab along the top of the window. Note: If you can’t see the Expert View option, it is likely because you don’t have Advanced Tools showing in your LPX Preferences. Command + comma, then select the Advanced tab along the top, and enable 3. Optional. Simply click the small plus sign on the bottom most left corner of the window to create a new “Zone” or group of assignments. I like to name the zone whatever the controller is I am signing controls to, in this Akai MPK61. While this step is optional, we won’t be spending much time here and it is always a good idea to keep things organized. 4. Now let’s head back to ≈by clicking the tab along the top of the window to start making assignments. After enabling “Learn” mode in the bottom right corner, simply click and move any control you desire. At that point you will notice Logic recognize that control in the “Parameter:…” field. Now interact with the hardware fader, button or rotary encoder on your device you would like it to control, and you’re done. Disable “Learn” mode by deselecting the button in the bottom right corner. Repeat as desired. If you need to delete an assignment for any reason, simply open the Controller Assignments window and head to Expert View. From here, select the folder or “Zone” you created earlier, and delete the desired assignment in the right most panel where it is listed. Logic Pro X’s Smart Control offer an untold number of creative possibilities, one of which we detailed in last week’s Logic Pros article, especially due to level of user customization it offers. Not only can they simply set-ups and offer handy macro controls for Logic Remote users, but they can also be mapped to your hardware controller just as easily as anything else in Logic. This effectively allows us to map multiple (any number) of track parameters in Logic to a single hardware control! While this may be more of an advanced set-up, tinkering with multiple parameters on a single control can render some pretty interesting and unexpected creative results. There are two options for mapping smart controls to hardware, either follow the same steps as above or the slightly quicker built-in Smart Control mapper: 1. Hit the “B” key or the Smart Control icon in your toolbar on Logic to view Smart Controls for the selected track. 2. Click the “i” icon in the top left corner of the pop-up Smart Control window, where you’ll find the “External Assignment” mapper. 3. Just like above, use the “Learn” button and then interact with the software control, followed by the desired hardware control. While a particular track’s Smart Controls will only offer parameters pertaining to that track, placing a number of tracks in a Summing Stack will open up your options considerably. Note: Personally I prefer the to go directly into the Controller Assignments window. But only because it can be easier to keep things organized (especially with multiple controllers in your set-up), creating quick assignments with the Smart Control mapper can be very handy and I will use it to assign the few hardware controls left open on my controller I described above. If there any questions or issues with your set-up, be sure to let us know in the comments below and we’ll see if we can help get to the bottom of it. Also, let us know what your favorite controllers are and how you like to have them mapped up Logic etc.

As buses and trucks grow ever larger and more complex, busy maintenance shops – particularly those serving transit agencies, public works departments and school districts – are demanding new technologies that make the work environment both more safe and productive, according to heavy duty vehicle lift experts, Stertil-Koni. One of the most pressing needs remains: how to efficiently service truck and bus transmissions. The challenge is big. “They are extremely heavy pieces of machinery (anywhere, from 1,500 lbs. to 3,000 lbs. each) that, when service is required, have to be manually removed from the undercarriage of the vehicle,” noted Peter Bowers, technical sales support manager at Stertil-Koni. Enter the latest technologies that have been incorporated into the good old fashioned transmission jack (TJ), which is designed for the removal and installation of transmissions, differentials and other components on heavy vehicles. They have proved to be ideal for servicing buses, trucks, industrial vehicles and a broad range of construction equipment. Now, the powerful TJ is bringing new capabilities to the shop floor, all courtesy of the latest advances: Continued Bowers, “When you work on heavy duty vehicles, safety is mission #1 at Stertil-Koni. Our transmission jacks have the highest capacity in the industry. What’s more, the fully-hydraulic telescopic system can support 3,500 lbs. at a speed of 30-inches per minute with a lifting range of 37-to 74-inches. Further, full-swivel dolly wheels ensure a tight turning radius with mechanical locks for safety.” Stertil-Koni TJs are constructed with heavy steel framing, assembled to the highest industry standards and are available in two formats – battery-operated and pneumatic. The battery-operated jack can be charged overnight and used without cables. The pneumatic jack has an attached air hose to keep it working. Previously, transmission jacks were manually hand-pumped, much like a car jack. The adaptable transmission jack can be used for a variety of service jobs in transit or fleet maintenance facilities, including the servicing of: In conclusion, Bowers added, “TJs have become an absolutely essential piece of equipment for today’s modern, heavy duty vehicle maintenance facilities. They enhance safety, improve ergonomics and boost productivity – every time.” About Stertil-Koni Stertil-Koni, a brand of the Stertil Group, is the global market leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts – bus lifts and truck lifts – and is the preferred supplier to the world’s leading companies in the truck and bus industries. Stertil-Koni's breadth of products meets all ranges of lifting needs and includes mobile column lifts with the ebright Smart Control System, two-post, four-post, in-ground piston lifts, platform lifts, half-scissors and its innovative axle-engaging, in-ground, scissor lift configuration, ECOLIFT.
