  • Easy Exercise Tips For More Energy From the Energy Efficient Lightweight AirRam

    The summer months are perfect weather for stretching our legs outdoors and enjoying nature at the same time.

    Exercise activates your endorphins, elevates your serotonin levels, and generally puts you at peace with the world. Cardiovascular activity even improves brain activity and helps you think clearly.

    Fitness is connected to the green revolution in an unspoken way; that’s why our lightweight vacuum cleaner data bridge program includes a calorie counter. You can chart your fitness while you save energy. Now, isn’t that something?

    In that spirit, here are some tips for staying fit this summer.

    runing on beachjExercise briefly upon waking.

    This is better than a cup of coffee. If you get your heart rate up first thing in the morning, it will activate your brain activity, too. Fresh air and cardiovascular activity will give you the tools you need to attack the day with gusto. If you wake up a little earlier than you normally would, just ten or fifteen minutes, you’ll give yourself far more energy with exercise than the extra sleep would give you.

     

    pushupsPushups and sit-ups do wonders for you.

    In an era of Crossfit, Pilates, and Zumba, exercise can seem like an overwhelming task to embark upon, but let’s not forget the simple merits of pushups and sit-ups. Both activities engage your core throughout, which improves your stability and overall strength, not just your six pack. You can’t burn these muscles out, so you can do them as regularly as you’d like. If you do push ups and sit-ups every day, your fitness will be far more well rounded.

    Walk, run, or bike instead of driving.

    Not only will this improve your endurance, lungpower, and general fitness, you will also help fight pollution. How often do you drive to the corner store that’s two or three blocks away? Just walk it next time, and enjoy the air outside.

    Make health and fitness an inseparable part of your lifestyle, like a second nature, and you will have a happier existence. Exercise with your Gtech AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, and count your calories on the data bridge program. Take the simple steps listed above, and the rewards will be great. It’s beautiful outside this summer, so go enjoy it!

  • Vacuums in Pop Culture

    Last time we took a spin around the living room with our cordless vacuum cleaner the AirRam, we felt that he was smiling at us. Maybe we took a few spins than needed aroAirRam1und the room, but we think the AirRam is starting to develop his own personality here at Gtech.

    And if the AirRam is developing that pop cultural appeal, we have to wonder: where does the AirRam fit into the greater conversation of vacuums throughout pop culture history? Well, we’re still figuring it out. We’re still getting to know this dapper little guy! In the mean time, here’s a series of other vacuums from pop culture past:

    Famous Vacuums in Pop Culture

    kirby1

     

    Kirby, from “The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

    He was grumpy, nervy, neurotic, and also endearing. He grew into a hero over the course of the film.

    kirby 2

     

    Kirby, from several Nintendo games

    Not a vacuum, you say? Apparently, you’ve forgotten that Kirby’s signature move was to    suck his opponents up (presumably into tidy bales) and absorb their powers. Also, he was undeniably adorable.

    nono

     

    Noo Noo, the incredibly bizarre vacuum friend of the Teletubbies

    He was their excitable compadre who periodically lost control and vacuumed up all of their possessions. Why? It was the Teletubbies; we have no idea.

     

    vacu2

     

    The people-sucking vacuums in 2010’s “Skyline”

    They took alien abduction to a new level, vacuuming literally thousands of people up at a stretch. But how are they on carpets?

    hocus pocus

     

    The vacuum serving as a witch’s broom in 1993’s “Hocus Pocus”

    Sarah Jessica Parker loses her broom, and a magical vacuum comes to her rescue. See the magic sparks flying out from the bottom? We wouldn’t trust it on our carpet.

     

    darkside

     

    The killer vacuum a child willed into existence on “Hush” from the 80s horror series “Tales from the Darkside”

    Just what it sounds like. It sucked… SOULS!

     

    These are just a couple sentences in a much longer conversation: vacuums across the pop culture encyclopedia. What will the legacy of our AirRam be at the end of the day? Only time will tell, but we’re certain it will be one of the good guy robots, not one of the bad guys. After all, this cordless vacuum cleaner is just way too good looking to be a villain.

  • Join the Bagless Vacuum Cleaner Revolution with Gtech

    Gtech has been honored with a media appearance again, this time in SlashGear, a reputable gadget weblog that ranked 29th in Technorati’s Top 100 List of Authoritative Blogs. We’re flattered, again, but we’ve known all along that the AirRam would change the upright cordless vacuum forever. SlashGear’s AirRam review highlights all the special details that set our bagless vacuum cleaner apart from every other vacuum. Don’t let its simple demeanor fool you; this vacuum has quite a lot going behind the scenes.

    Gtech AirRam

    The article reads “It boasts a 3-inch, slim profile and only weighs 7.7 pounds, making it easy to move around, even around the trickiest places like under the couch.” We absolutely agree, but I don’t think it’s fair to say the AirRam is boasting. Its unassuming body does not need to beat you over the head with its advantages; the proof is in the padding after you’ve vacuumed your floor with it.

    This glowing analysis of Gtech’s innovative cordless vacuum cleaner hits all the important features of the AirRam: its energy efficiency, its vacuuming power, its Data Bridge which tells you power savings and the calories you’ve burned vacuuming, and its appearance, but you should know all that by now. And if you didn’t, just pick up an AirRam at Brookstone for $349.95 and find out for yourself!

  • Celebrate Christmas in July with our Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    santa1It’s the most wonderful time of year! America is a country that is certainly known for its festivity, and Christmas in July has become a cult phenomenon over the years.

    We love to give and to receive, because new stuff is always fun, isn’t it? This Christmas in July, why not make a gift of the ultimate cordless vacuum cleaner, and share the joys of a Gtech AirRam? There are, after all, many, many messes to be made in the summertime.

    The kids may be back from school, the beach sand may follow your feet inside, and you’ll probably host a party or two. Christmas in July extends beyond the gift of giving, however, it’s a miniature culture. Have a party, bust out that Santa Claus suit and make those red pants into cutoffs!

    Here’s our salute to the beloved pretend-real holiday, Christmas in July.

    santa2Christmas in July has multiple source points in history. The first documented use of the phrase was from Camp Keystone, an all-girls sleep-away camp in 1933, and the festivities included an actual tree, presents, and visit from Santa Claus, himself.

    In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in D.C. found a humanitarian niche with Christmas in July, rounding up gifts to be eventually distributed among various missions worldwide, to the underprivileged. The U.S. Post Office teamed up with military official to launch their own Christmas in July in 1944; it was designed to set up early gift mailing to men and women overseas. Unfortunately for them, our cordless vacuum cleaner wasn’t invented just yet.

    This Christmas in July, have a real celebration. Give the holiday more than just a name; live it! We recommend going all out, because if you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing right. Exchange gifts, have Santa pay a visit, decorate accordingly, and really try to feel it.

    The reason: why not? There’s an indescribable something to Christmas, and who says you can’t reach that feeling in July? Best of luck, and Merry Christmas in July!

  • 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.

    cordless vacuum cleaner

    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.
