Quilo 2.0 evaporative cooling system packs an air purifier and Alexa
After its first smart fan was met with a very warm reception on Kickstarter, raising more than $80,000 in the process, Quilo has returned to the platform with a new and improved version. The Quilo 2.0 is a smart upgrade on the original, with automated air purifying and voice commands added to its humidifying and cooling capabilities.
First and foremost the Quilo 2.0 remains a fan, keeping interiors nice and chilled by drawing water from tank onto a honeycomb cooling pad (which repels mold) and pushing evaporated water vapor into the air. Also like its predecessor, the Quilo 2.0 is able to gently humidify dry air to combat irritated skin ad sinuses, along with other symptoms.
New on the revamped version is the addition of an air purifier. This comes courtesy of two interchangeable cartridges that turn it into a three-stage HEPA air purification device that adapts to its surroundings. A sensor is built into the Quilo 2.0 that will automatically switch on the air purifier as necessary, trapping allergens like dust, pollen and other pollutants inside.
The Quilo 2.0 is also Alexa-enabled, meaning that owners can talk to it via their speaker or other compatible devices and have it cool down another room in time for their entrance. It comes packaged in a polished curvy body that can glide from room to room courtesy of smooth-moving casters.
