Ampere Product Line
Here is a list of the most creative products I thought are worth sharing. They have similar products on their website, I suggest checking them out yourself and maybe something will catch your eye.
HyperCube Solo: Wireless Charging Station + Sleep Aid
The picture above shows how the HyperCube looks like when it is unfolded. By default, it is a box with something on each side. It has 3 fast charging wireless pads, a light and sound alarm, sleep sounds, and it is patent pending. You will not really see such a product anywhere else. Not only that, it looks slick, compact, and solid.
You can charge any Qi-enabled devices (basically any new phone with wireless charging). It is compatible with AirPods and comes with a 20800 mAh battery (an extra feature – only in the US). If you wish however to charge your smart watch you will have to pay extra for this funcion.
Default price: $175 (€141,95).
Shower Power: Attachable Shower-head Speaker
If you love to listen to music, audio books or podcasts while showering – this might be the product for you. It attaches to basically any shower head and can be connected through bluetooth. The best thing about this product is, is that you will never have to charge it. It charges itself by using hydro power system that is built in. As water floats through the device it creates resistance, therefore creating energy and turning it into electricity. How cool is that, right?
Not only that, if you enjoy high-quality sound (who doesn’t?) it has a 360 sound system – usually, such systems have deep bass and immersive experience. Shower power has a 2,600mAh battery (in case you wish to take it outside), with water running through it though it will never lose power.
It is not yet available, but you can pre order it for only $100 (€84).
Cell UV Sanitiser + Wireless Charger
This VR-looking device has a UV sanitizer that will remove 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses from your devices in just one minute. Not only that it comes with wireless charging capability that is placed on the top of the device. It has internal storage where you can place your items and have them always 99.9% free of germs!
Default product price: $100 (€84).
App-Enabled Smart Sunglasses
These sunglasses will change the shade of the glass (plastic) to basically any darkness you might need. It has a built in ear audio, integrated microphone, IP66 waterproof, battery life of 6 hours on play time and 20 yours of standby. You can now really feel like living in the future, because of the inbuilt mic you can use Siri!
I would not recommend swimming in them though, IP65 waterproof means that it can withstand raid, splash, and sweat.
The product is not yet launched, but you can pre order it on Indiegogo: here. $249 (€204) for an early bird.
When looking at the overall reviews the users are very happy, this is a startup after all and there are some negative but constructive comments that will help the company to upgrade the existing products with new features.
What do you think? What are some of the other companies out there that are as creative as Ampere?
