Fishkin reports on the latest trends and people behind the products in the technology world. He got a chance to demo our AirRam and hear about the exciting features.

Our powerful AirRam continues to flex its muscles, garnering attention at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Recently, the self proclaimed "Muscleman of Technology," Bruce Pechman, included us in his "Best Of" review from CES 2014.
We were featured in a lively live demo on KUSI San Diego. Check it out (4 minutes in to the video) and hear what Bruce has to say about the AirRam's power and features.... and find out just how dirty a news studio floor is... eeww.
We’re always happy to hear that you’re happy with the AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, especially when it’s a reputable periodical responding to us, because then even more readers know how easy it is for them to be happy as well.
A clean home breeds happiness; it’s that simple. So who’s happy today? The New York Times is cleaning happily to the energy-efficient AirRam and validated our own joy, once again.
In the July 4 issue of The New York Times, reviewer Gregory Schmidt highlights the AirRam’s exciting journey into the land of the free, calling to attention the “efficient, compact design that eliminates tubes and bags and incorporates a professional- grade lithium-ion battery.” Yes, excellent stuff: professional grade cleaning for the non-professional cleaner.
Plus, “at seven and a half pound, the AirRam is light.” For those playing at home, it’s less than a gallon of milk. Schmidt also gave a shout-out to the easy to dispose bales created by our upright vacuum cleaner. We just love it when people reference the tidy bales that are compressed from the process of cleaning efficiently with the AirRam.
Thanks, New York Times! We’re going to keep moving forward with the business of making people happy.
Brookstone shoppers to receive $50 gift card with purchase of a Gtech AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner
Gtech USA today announced today a special promotion for Brookstone AirRam shoppers. From now to August 10, 2013, customers will receive a gift card worth $50 off any item in Brookstone (stores and online) with the purchase of an AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner.
"This special promotion is a great opportunity for customers to get their hands on the AirRam they've heard so much buzz about," said Steve Schwartz, Brookstone vice president merchandising and product development. "We really believe this vacuum changes the way you clean and take care of your home. We're excited to offer such a rich promotion to our shoppers and invite them to see a demo at their local Brookstone store."
The Gtech AirRam is the first cordless, bagless, canister-free vacuum on the market that in third-party tests of cleaning performance, has been shown to outperform a number of cordless vacuums and performs as well as various corded vacuum brands**.
The cordless vacuum cleaner represents the most significant evolution in vacuum development over the last 20 years, and brings myriad first-time technological and design developments to the category, including:
- Dirt-to-tray technology: Unlike any other vacuum on the market (cordless, and those with a canister or bag) the AirRam’s direct dirt-to-tray technology compresses dust and debris into bales that can be emptied right into the trash
- Gtech data bridge program: The AirRam can be connected to a computer via USB to monitor battery life, energy usage, energy cost savings, and the calories burned while using the AirRam.
- Ultra-low profile: The AirRam has an ultra-low profile that allows for easy cleaning under chairs and tables clean any type of floor (tile, carpet or wood) without attachments or any adjustments and is only 7.7 pounds (less than half the weight of a standard vacuum cleaner)
- Long run time: A full charge takes four hours and powers the vacuum for a runtime of up to 40 minutes, allowing consumers to clean an average U.S. home on a single charge.
The Gtech AirRam is available for purchase from Brookstone stores and at Brookstone.com and at select Brookstone retailers nationwide.
“Paying it forward” is when you receive something good you then pass on that goodness to someone else. Passing it on spreads your joy across multiple people. Can you imagine if everyone paid it forward together? We think the world would be a happier place.
Gtech encourages you to give a happy gift, to pay it forward, to share the joys of the AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner with the people in your life. Making a sad world smile is no small order, we know, so where should you begin? Your at-home cleaning service!
These people work hard to maintain a pristine home for you; make their lives easier with the revolutionary cordless vacuum. They’ll be happy, you’ll be happy, and your floors will be happy, too. You can tell when a floor is happy; the whole house seems to smirk. And after all, major change begins in tiny exchanges.
The AirRam upright vacuum cleaner will make your cleaning people’s jobs easier, simply put. It’s light, it’s cordless, it’s versatile, and it’s fun to use.
Think about the vacuum your cleaner is using now. It’s probably a hulking dinosaur of a thing that weighs more than twice the svelte little AirRam. It probably scowls before it smiles.
These people work hard, and their attention to detail reverberates through larger aspects of your life, so why not show them you care? You’ll see the joy paid forward reflected in your home, and if everyone’s doing it right, they’ll pay it forward, too. In six months, we could be living in a paradise, where everyone’s floors are immaculate, with an upright vacuum for every upright citizen! Maybe that’s a little overboard, but at the very least, we’ll be smiling.
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' /]
The Dance: The Twist!
The Vacuum: With its bubbly appearance, the 1960s imagines an interesting future.
The Dance: The Hustle! Disco is in full swing.
The Vacuum: Leaving the era of pseudo-futuristic conformity, we enter the awkward boxy phase.
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.
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.
The Dance: The Dougie, as in teach me how to.
The Vacuum: Some innovative styles emerge, like the bagless cylinder vacuum.
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.

The Gtech AirRAM is starting to enjoy its position as the forerunner of vacuum cleaner technology. Its revolutionary design is turning heads, and it was recently featured on “Wendy Williams,” as well as on “The View,” in a special segment for “The Best Spring Gadgets of 2013.” Dr. Gadget is usually an enthusiastic character, but was especially excited about Gtech’s 7.7-pound, battery-powered AirRAM bagless vacuum cleaner.
The clip from “The View” highlights all the wonderful features this small, lightweight machine is packing. It’s energy-efficient, space-saving, rechargeable, and excellent for getting all those bits of debris off any floor surface. Lance Bass loved it during the segment and the AirRAM looked good up there next to the other gadgets, too. I dare say the AirRAM upright vacuum cleaner was the star of the show. Watch the clip below to see how easily it removes studio lint from the sample carpet, to much applause.[hana-code-insert name='the view ariram' /]
Naturally, Wendy Williams loved the AirRAM, too. So much, in fact, that she gave one to every audience member! There is a wild herd of AirRAMs out there now, cleaning up the world’s messes one home at a time. She shared all of the amazing AirRAM features with her very excited audience, adding that the AirRAM can be stored under your bed. We like the idea of an AirRAM keeping watch through the night.
Yes, the Gtech AirRAM is making a name for itself, but you’ve got to give it a whirl to see for yourself. It’s now available online at Gtech and in store and online at Brookstone. Get in on the ground floor, so to speak, with the hottest new star in vacuum technology, the Gtech AirRAM. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to watch the AirRAM blossom.
Father’s Day and a multitude of graduations are right around the corner. Let the people you care about know how much you appreciate them with the perfect gift. For Father’s Day, wouldn’t it be nice to give something back? As for graduates, they could use any help they can get before embarking on the mysterious journey of life after school. Save yourself some time by establishing a gift-giving game plan today. The AirRam upright vacuum cleaner will make both sets of celebrants happy.
We all know that, generally, dads love gadgets, and Gtech is the future of floor cleaners. Does your father or a father you know read gadget reviews? If he does, he may have already heard about our innovative new technology. If he hasn’t, it won’t be long before he’s very excited about it this Father’s Day. There are no bags, cords, or cyclone. Just tiny brushes that do all the work. It’s easy to use and brand new. It doesn’t get much better than that for dads.
To anyone who has seen a dorm room in disarray during finals week, the AirRam is also an obvious choice for graduating students. Let our cordless vacuum cleaner be a grad’s escape from the chaos. Adulthood is about responsibility, and cleanliness is an excellent starting line. This is a portable, slender appliance that will fit comfortably between the moving boxes and furniture to help maintain whatever space the future holds for a new graduate.
We’re changing the way you think about cleaning. Don’t let June make your gift choices a messy business. Simplify things!
On May 7th, Gtech hosted an exclusive event for the US launch of the revolutionary AirRam at The Glass Houses in New York City. The AirRam cleaned up, receiving much fanfare. Gtech has re-imagined the cordless vacuum cleaner, which positions the company on the crest of a wave of innovative technologies. Everything is changing for the better, and our product launch showed the American public how the AirRam has made cleaning better forever.
AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Launch Event
Over conversation and light hors’ doeuvres, Josh Klein, Hacker Strategist and Host of The Link on the National Geographic Channel, spoke on the new power of emerging technologies. His presentation focused on an eclectic mix of new, clever products and suggested that their success has come about because “technology is utterly changing consumers by empowering them in a whole new way.”
You might wonder how that happens. At Gtech we understand that a “whole new way” is a concert of utility, look, and wild new ideas. That’s why the AirRam uses far less power, doesn’t use a cyclone, and looks so sleek and friendly.

After Josh’s thought provoking presentation, Gtech founder Nick Grey weighed in on the topic of innovative technology and explained his vision for the AirRam. He encouraged the audience to think about the evolution of television sets. First, they were huge, with wires hanging everywhere. Now they’re slender and portable. Think about the evolution of vacuums, with the AirRam right at the end. Does the process look familiar? The AirRam is not just a new vacuum; it’s a new way of thinking about vacuums.
Finally, Greg McCormick brought it all home with benefits of the AirRam upright vacuum cleaner. Each of the presentations was enlightening and helped solidify the AirRam as the next big thing in cleaning technology across America.
Here’s what some of the event guests had to say:
What do you think of the AirRam invasion? Do you want to try it out at your home?
