Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 623
Chapter 623 – The Amazing show flat
Feng Yu turned to Jiang Wanmeng and said: “Bring him to ourshow flat.”
Jiang Wanmeng nodded.He was looking forward to seeing how thisproud Dutch would react when he saw their show flat.
This show flat was suggested by Feng Yu. Feng Yu wanted aplace to showcase and experiment with thefuture of home appliances. Almost all home appliances in the show flat were “invented” by Feng Yu. Many of them were simple but very practical. It includes Wind andRain Home appliances products.
At the door, there was an electronic lock. Jiang Wanmengkeyed in 9527, and there was a beep tonotify the user that the door was unlocked. The password was set by Feng Yu, and he likes this number.
Electronic locks wereinvented a long time ago, but it was still not widespread.It was because there were still many disadvantages to electronic locks. For instance, the keypad was not sensitiveenough, and it could not be easilyunlocked. The microchip was also easily decoded. But at Wind and RainElectronics, most of the locks were electronic.
Thomas raised his brows when he saw the electronic lock.It’s just an electronic lock. What’s there to be surprised? We also have theseat Philips. These people from Wind and Rain Electronics have been living in themountains?!
But when Thomas saw the Windand Rain logo at the door lock, he was slightly surprised. This electronic lockwas invented by Wind and Rain themselves? Philips also candevelop such locks.
“These are something our staffs invented in their freetime.” Jiang Wanmeng said as he opened the door. He introduced the features ofthe show flat to Thomas. “This is our best room. It is set up like an apartmentand had used all the futuristic concept suggested by Manager Feng. Manager Fengdoes not only own Wind and Rain Electronics. He also owns Wind and Rain Home Appliances. I am sure you have heard of thebladeless fans. It is one of the products of Wind and Rain Home Appliances.”
Thomas had a surprised look on his face. Wind and RainElectronics, Wind and Rain Home Appliances, were own by the same person? Mr. Feng had so many businesses. Seems like itwas impossible to use the government to pressurize them to give in.
But what do futuristicconcepts mean?
Jiang Wanmeng picked up a remote control near the door andpoints it at the window. Beep. The curtains opened. He then points the remote at the TV, and the TV was switched on. He pressed anotherbutton, and the VCD player was switchedon. The TV was playing a video of Elvis Presley.
“This remote control is used to control everything in thisflat. You only need to point it at the home appliances, and you can control it.” Jiang Wanmeng explained.
But Jiang Wanmeng noticed that Thomas was not listening tohim. His eyes were glued to the TV.
This was a flat screen TV using a plasma display panel. Although it was not as flat as the futureflat screen TV, the thickness was only 10 cm. It was much slimmer than thetraditional cathode-ray tube (CRT) TV.
“You all also knows about this technology?” It was theJapanese that were good at Plasma TV technology. Companies like Panasonic, NEC,andFujitsu,were researching into this technology. Wind and Rain electronics also got hold ofthis technology?
Philips was also researching this technology and tried tointroduce this type of TV. But it was not popular among the consumers as it wascostly and the picture quality was about the same as regular TV. But Philips felt that these Plasma TV would be popular in the future.
“We cannot say we are good at this technology. We arecurrently researching Liquid-crystal-display televisions (LCD TVs). We arestill deciding whether to focus on Plasma or LCD.” Jiang Wanmeng rubbed hisnose and replied.
Jiang Wanmeng was lying. Wind and Rain Electronics still didnot understand about this technology. They had only reversed engineered otherpeople’s product and was still studying it. They can only be consideredbeginners in this field.
Thomas was shocked. Wind and Rain Electronics was alsoresearching LCD monitors? This was what Philips was focusing on. But LCDresolution was not as high as Plasma TV. However, it was much cheaper, lighter,and thinner than plasma TV!
Why was Wind and Rain Electronics research direction similarto them?
The answer was simple. Because Feng Yu knew about the futureof consumer electronics. Plasma Tv was very popular at the start, but when LCDTV’s resolution increases and the cost lowered, Plasma TV became obsolete.
This was why Feng Yu refusesto waste time researching into Plasma TV. When Jiang Wanmeng and his team toldFeng Yu that they wanted to study Plasmatechnology, Feng Yu said them to consider LCD tv instead. He knew that beforePlasma TV becomes widespread, it will bereplaced by LCD TVs.
Also, LCD monitors were more suitable to be used for computer monitors, and the growth of this technology was rapid. Itreplaced Plasma TV and CRT TV within a few years!
Jiang Wanmeng switched on the air purifier in the corner.This technology was actually invented by Yadu. But when Wind and Rain HomeAppliances exchanged technologies withYadu, it was included in it.
This Air purifier also hasthe aromatherapy function in it. Soon, the whole room was filled with a mildfragrant.
“This air purifier hasaromatherapy and humidifying functions incorporated in it. The air here is dry,and you will feel better if the air ishumidified.” Jang Wanmeng explained.
“There is a computer here, andyou can send emails to your company. You are also free to surf the net. Oh, this computer is equipped with an optical drive. There are some game discs here. If you are bored, you can play somecomputer games or watch a movie. Other than the monitor is smaller, the qualityis as good as VCD players. With these earphones, the sound is better thanwatching from the TV.”
Computer with optical drives? What a crazy idea! If this were introduced to the market, it wouldinevitablyreplace the floppy disk. CD will be able to store more data than floppy disk!
“Is this computer also manufactured from your company? Butthe logo is not from Wind and Rain.”
“This is Lenovo. China’s best computer brand. Manager Fengalso owns some shares in this company.”
Thomas had a disbelievinglook on his face. Feng Yu also have shares in this company? How many businessesdid Feng Yu have? How come he seems to doanything related to electronics and home appliances?
“Oh, let me show you the bathroom.”
Thomas was stunned. What’s there to show in the bathroom?You think I did not use a bathroombefore? Don’t tell me that your bathroomis fully automated?
“This water heater adjust the water temperatureautomatically. You can set the temperature you want here, and there is anLCD display. The + sign means to increasethe temperature and – sign is to lower the temperature. The highest you can setis 72 degree Celsius.”
“I think I do not need to introduce the hairdryer. This isthe hand dryer. There is a built-in infrared sensor. It will blow out hot airto dry your hands. This will prevent your hands from getting germs when youcome into contact with the towels or paper. If you are interested, you canexperience it yourself.”
Automatic hand dryer technology was based on bladeless fantechnology. It was small and could be hungon the wall. Wind and Rain Home appliances had applied patent for thistechnology. The Japanese company who owns this patent in Feng Yu’s previouslife can only watch Feng Yu reap all the benefits.
“This is a robotic vacuum cleaner. It is also in-built withinfrared sensors. After you switch it on and place on the floor, it will vacuumthe floor itself. Look, after it touched the wall, it will change direction onits own. If you switch it on before you leave for work, your floor will beclean when you return home.”
“This is the kitchen. This is a light wave microwave oven.It combines the technology of microwave and light wave. It will heat up yourfood faster and save more electricity. This is a product which Wind and RainHome Appliances will introduce later this year. This is an induction cooker.You should have used it before.”
When Jiang Wanmeng turned back to look at Thomas, he sawThomas was still in shocked.
Thomas was stunned by all the home appliances in this showflat. Were these home appliances for averagehouseholds? Wind and Rain Electronics and Wind and Rain Home Appliances werealready so technologically advanced?
