2. Piqapoo


Piqapoo was designed by dog parents with the dog’s well-being as the top priority. We spent three years refining its design and searching for the best materials that are both durable and provide maximum comfort for our pets. As dog parents, we are very protective of our dogs. When we first came up with the idea we had to check that it actually works. We talked with many dog owners, trainers, and vets and got very good feedback.

We’ve created the travel essentials that will bring out the true minimalist in you.

6.Silent Partner

Silent Partner utilizes Active Noise Cancellation technology (ANC), which senses the snoring sound and emits a counter sound, to cancel the undesirable one. Silent Partner relies on the physics of sound waves. Every sound is characterized by pressure waves, which have specific amplitudes and frequencies. The amplitude of a wave measures its height above its base position and the frequency measures how many waves pass a point within a certain space of time.A noise-cancellation device, like the Silent Partner, emits a sound wave with the same amplitude but at an inverted phase to the original sound. So if the snore wave looked like a bumpy line, the counter sound would overlay the snore wave with its bumps in between the bumps of the snore line. As a result, the wave and counter-wave combine to form a new sound wave and the two effectively cancel each other out.

7.Altered Nozzle

Mist & Save Mode

Perfect for kitchen and bathroom taps everywhere. In your home, your boat, at the office, in your vacation home or wherever you have a tap and want to save water. The old solution for saving water has been to restrict the flow of water. But that only works up to a point. When you’re left with only a drizzle, you need a shift in technology. We looked at the problem from another perspective. Instead of restricting water, we wanted to use as much of the water coming out of the tap as possible. The issue with regular taps is that you only use a fraction of the water coming out of your faucet. It bounces of the surface of your hands or plates. Or even worse, it just passes right by and straight down the drain.
