  • Keep the Sand at Bay with the Fearless Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    Cultural blending is when two or more cultures mix their ways of life.

    Think about pizza in America, or Japan’s penchant for dressing like Elvis. And it happens every summer right in your home. You’re one person on the beach, carefree and sunbathing, shirtless, unplugged and an entirely different person when you leave it at the coast and come home.

    However, the beach has a tendency to follow you there and the results are less than desirable; sand infiltrates everything. Months later you may lift a portion of carpet and see little grains of it in parts of your house you forgot existed!

    This summer, don’t let cultural blending between the swimming spot and the living room make a months-long mess! Let the Gtech AirRam keep ‘em separated. It’s ok; you don’t have to put your shirt back on if you don’t want to.

    Gtech’s design makes it ideal for hard to reach places. It’s a cordless vacuum cleaner, so you’re free to travel wherever the sand traveled in your house. It’s lightweight, at a gentle 7.7 pounds, so you won’t have any problem getting it up on your steps to really dig in and clean.

    It’s versatile; let the arm down to reach way under your couch and other places that haven’t seen the light of day since you moved in. And the AirRam has the power to transform substances, something called “alchemy” back in the day (like way back).  The AirRam is a bagless vacuum cleaner; it takes granules of sand too small to track and transforms them into “tidy bales,” so you can toss the beach out when you’re done, in neat little bricks.

    Don’t let beach culture invade your home this summer! Outside is freedom and inside is order, and never the twain shall meet. Clean your house in style, grace, and comfort with the Gtech AirRam. Make sure to wash your feet first, though, or it’ll be a long process. And don’t worry; the beach is still out there waiting for you to get sandy and sun-soaked again when you’re ready!

  • The Evolution of Vacuuming: From Retro Colors to Cordless Technology

    At Gtech, we recognize that you don’t arrive at the zenith of a process without an appreciation of its roots.

    Creativity is the art of dissembling established concepts and rebuilding from their dismantled parts. Like a phoenix from the ashes, the AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner has flown high, to the top of the game.

    We’ve put together a retrospective of the many masks vacuuming has worn over the years. As a reference, and inspired by Judson Laipply of “Evolution of Dance” fame, we’ve included images of the dances that pin the appliances to their corners in time.

    Before we begin, just try not to be entertained by this talented man:

     [hana-code-insert name='evodance1' /]

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.49.28 PM

    1960's

    The Dance: The Twist!

    The Vacuum: With its bubbly appearance, the 1960s imagines an interesting future.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.50.56 PM1970's

    The Dance: The Hustle! Disco is in full swing.

    The Vacuum: Leaving the era of pseudo-futuristic conformity, we enter the awkward boxy phase.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.51.46 PM1980's

    The Dance: The running man! What were we running from?

    The Vacuum: Looks suspiciously like something from Star Wars. It’s one piece, not two, and the colors are atrocious.

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.52.23 PM1990's

    The Dance: It’s Hammertime! Or it was.

    The Vacuum: Central vacuum cleaners gained popularity, where the actual vacuum was a semi-permanent fixture. People were settling in with their vacuums.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.54.32 PM2000's

    The Dance: The Dougie, as in teach me how to.

    The Vacuum: Some innovative styles emerge, like the bagless cylinder vacuum.

     

    AirRam

     

    2010's

    The Dance: The decade is young, and the dance is your palate to paint with. Invent something we’ve never seen!

    The Vacuum: The AirRam has arrived, and the evolution is complete.

    You can see the evolution of the vacuum has been an interesting one. Our past visions of the future diverged from where the future has actually taken us, but isn’t life always surprising that way? There’d be no story to tell if everything unfolded the way we’d planned it.

    What matters is that we’ve arrived, at long last. Next time you use your Gtech AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, think about the journey vacuuming has taken, and give it a little hug. When you fire it up, think of a dance that could define a generation, and go to work.

    What’s your move? Show us the dance move you’ve created that will change dance the way the AirRam has changed vacuuming on Facebook and Twitter. Keep up with our blog for more updates!

  • Beating the June Gloom with AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    It affects Southern California and the Pacific Northwest, the weather phenomenon known as “June Gloom,” and it takes the wind out of some of our sails in what should be the gateway to summer. But you don’t just have to live in California to have an off-day.

    The occasional gray can mess with your summer vibe. Recent studies have shown that weather affects our mood, so what can we do in these moments when we remember that warm, carefree summer feeling from years past and a gloomy day is threatening to steal it away?

    Like most innovative things, the AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner was conceived by an optimistic spirit, so Gtech has put this list together to help you stay positive when the sun takes a siesta anywhere in America:

    • Have a Film Festival at Home

    Compile a bunch of your favorite movies and watch two or three of them in a row. To spice it up and give you something to do, you could wander your local movie store and see what jumps out at you, expanding your collection. It’s nice to have a unifying theme, i.e. a trilogy, or sunny movies for a not-so-sunny day.

    • Take a Hike

    Sometimes, you have to refuse to submit. If it’s cloudy, but not rainy, don’t count your day ruined! It’s still nice to go and become one with nature. See if you can find a botanical garden near you. The colors of certain flowers look even brighter by contrast when it’s overcast. Don’t let low-hanging clouds make you lay low.

    • Read Outside

    Reading is an activity that’s complimented by gloomy weather. Escape reality and play out the vivid scenes in your mind, but do it from a porch or sitting in your yard. The fresh air will be revitalizing and there will be no sun reflecting off of your pages, so it’s easy on the eyes.

    • Aquariums and Planetariums

    Find interesting and informative indoor experiences. Aquariums are very interesting and very serene. Try a planetarium, so you can see the stars on a day when they will covered by the cloud blanket after the sun goes down.

    june gloomyOptimism is the key to a healthy and happy lifestyle. We cannot control the weather, but we can control what we do with it when it turns on us a little. Summer arrives in June, so let’s maintain those jubilant summer sensations! These are just a few examples we came up with for how to beat the June Gloom or whatever regional curve ball the weather throws at you, but there are a million things to do if you think creatively.

    Hold out a little longer. It’s going to be a beautiful summer. Stay tuned. We’ll tackle different weather issues from across the country.

Check out the first #AirRamJam playlist and let us know what you think! Winter was tedious, and cleaning used to be tedious, too. Let’s break the cycle.

    [hana-code-insert name='AirRam Jams 2' /]

    Music is motivational. It’s easy to get lost in thought, so why not put a beat to your work to keep your brain tapping in time? Studies have shown that a soundtrack is an efficient and pleasurable way to break out of repetitive work cycles. A recent article by The New York Times confirmed that music in the workplace allows your brain to think more creatively because you are actually, biologically happier. Melodies release mood-elevating dopamine in the part of your brain associated with rewards, like the rewards of a clean room and a fresh start.

Open the drapes, fling your windows wide, and let our music put some bounce in your step as you make your way around the room with our cordless vacuum cleaner. Since we’re in the business of innovation, why not make a dance of it? Listen to our new #AirRamJam playlist for the best music to usher in a beautiful new Spring. Just because there’s something in the air doesn’t mean there should be something on the floor.
