JACKERY’S ULTIMATE PORTABLE CHARGER LAUNCHES ON INDIEGOGO

Jackery debuts all in one battery with Quick Charge 3.0, AC outlet and solar charger

There was a time when heading to the great outdoors guaranteed a break from technology, but, according to a recent study, today’s travelers fail to switch off and instead pack at least five gadgets.

For people who need power on the move to take pictures, update social profiles, play music, light up the night, fly drones or straighten their hair, Jackery today launches the PowerBar on Indiegogo.

PowerBar is the ultimate all in one charging companion, it can power up to four devices simultaneously, super fast, super safe.

Works for a large range of devices

With in-built AC, USB-C and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 outlets the power bank can charge a host of devices from smartphones and laptops to drones, projectors and mini fridges. The high power UL certified 18650 lithium battery can recharge a Apple MacBook, 1.5 times; Microsoft Surface pro 4, 1.6 times; iPhone and Android devices up to eight times; and a GoPro, eight to 10 times.

Whether traveling for work, on the beach, hiking the wilderness or enjoying a festival, keep multiple devices powered up with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 outlet, which charges compatible gadgets up to 85% faster.

Airline friendly

At just 1.5 lbs the PowerBar is the smallest and lightest battery pack in its class and is safe for airline use as the 20800mAh / 77Wh capacity falls within Federal Aviation Administration’s safety limit of 100Wh.

Made from tough fireproof thermoplastic it is built to withstand more than daily wear and tear.

Efficient and safe

With its smart battery management system the PowerBar adapts to optimal voltage levels for each device when powering, and continuously manages inflow and outflow to ensure that both the device and PowerBar operate in the most efficient way.

AC or solar power recharge

Easily recharge in six hours by plugging into a wall outlet or from the car. If off the grid for days at a time then connect the optional solar panel and recharge wherever there is daylight.

Zhongwei Sun, Jackery’s CEO, explains: “We want to give everyone the ability to charge all their devices without the need for a wall outlet. The PowerBar has passed strict quality control tests and is the ultimate power-up companion for work or travel.”

The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign kicks off on 29th August with a target of $50,000 to put the device into mass production with an SRP of $199.

News: Touch Press Inc. releases My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR



Touch Press Inc. releases its first Augmented Reality app, My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR

Bringing the iconic character to life in the real world for the very first time.

My Very Hungry CaterpillarNew York – September 19, 2017 – Touch Press today launched My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR, specifically designed for iPhone and iPad.* The app was developed with ARKit, a new framework that allows developers to easily create unparalleled augmented reality experiences for iPhone and iPad. By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways.

Touch Press is excited to bring this unique experience to the millions of My Very Hungry Caterpillar fans around the world.

Barry O’Neill, CEO of Touch Press, described how children who had played with the all new AR app had “expressed themselves – and expressed wonder” at the vibrant life-like caterpillar which appeared to be right in front of them, sliding across the floor in search of food. “Children believe in magical, invisible things. With ARKit we’ve been able to develop an app that gives them a lens to reveal, and interact with this magical, invisible world”, he added.

Eric Carle’s much-loved character, The Very Hungry Caterpillar™, has won the hearts of millions of children globally for almost 50 years. In 2014, in partnership with Eric Carle, StoryToys (part of Touch Press) brought the world’s favorite caterpillar to life for the very first time in the stunning interactive My Very Hungry Caterpillar app. To date 4.6 Million users have cared for their digital pet, feeding their caterpillar and watching it grow into a beautiful butterfly. More information and facts available here.

With ARKit, users can now interact with the caterpillar in a real world environment. Not only do children learn about the lifecycle of the caterpillar / butterfly, but they also develop empathy and responsibility as well as visuospatial skills. The app can spark conversation, as children who have played it have talked amongst themselves and to the adults in the room.

The My Very Hungry Caterpillar AR app is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store for just $2.99.
