With the explosion of consumer access to multi-channel audio content, we are planting the stake to say our entertainment deserves immersive audio," said Rob Jones, CTO for Enclave Audio. "We're restoring the integrity of the home theater experience by delivering customers their favorite movies, shows, games, and music, the way it was intended it to be heard, without the complicated installation processes of the past."

The CineHome II surround sound speaker set is available starting at $999.99 US MSRP. The CineHome PRO surround sound speaker set is available starting at $1,499.99 US MSRP. The Enclave CineHub is available starting at $149.99 US MSRP but when bundled with a CineHome II or CineHome PRO speaker set, is available for $99.99.

Your Key to Green Construction

Your Key to Green Construction


If you were an adult or grew in the United States and other countries during the 1970s era, you may remember “The Energy Crisis” that rocked the economy and livelihood of many people. Waiting hours in a gas line to get only a few rationed gallons are not fond memories. A looming fossil fuel shortage had shown the world the need for energy conservation and protection of the environment, not only in vehicles and industries but in construction of new homes, and buildings as well.


Even though green construction did not get formally organized until the 1990s, The birth of it dates back to the late 1800s to early 1900s, when a French engineer and physicist named Antione Henri Becquerel, first witness the photovoltaic power, the transformation of solar energy into electrical energy.

After the 1970s energy crisis, the green movement went from research and development to reality. However, it wasn’t until the 1990s it became formally organized and a few milestones groups were established - Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE) just to name a couple.


Green construction is a way to build and design eco-friendly and resource-efficient structures, whether residential or commercial. The goal is to leave a smaller carbon footprint on the earth than with normal construction.

From planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and demolishing buildings, architects and engineers are constantly finding new ways to incorporate green technology into the ever evolving construction process.

There are many ways to integrate green construction into a project. Here is a sample of three -

1. Cool Roofs - During a sizzling hot summer day, a typical roof’s temperature may reach or exceed 150 degrees. A cool roof is designed to reflect the sun’s solar rays and decrease the thermal emittance. Therefore, reducing the roof’s temperature by 50+ degrees. The interior temperatures stay cooler and this helps conserve energy on AC bills.

2. Preserve, Recycle, and Reuse - The three ways green construction practices conservation and waste management. In fact, if a construction project proves to have prevented at least fifty percent (50%) waste generated from demolition or construction site, there are tax saving incentives by getting the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification.

3. Efficient Use Energy and Water - The building envelope can be designed to use windows as passive solar heat, to maximize warmth in the cooler temperatures and minimize it in the scorching hot days. Energy-efficient appliances and HVAC units are essential. Not to mention, renewable energy examples in construction that can be used is collecting rainwater, and use trees and plants to help provide shade.


Green construction is expanding and rightfully so - the occupants of these buildings enjoy breathing cleaner air and the owners and managers enjoy saving on the utility bills.

Michael Tobias is the founder and principal of Chicago Engineers. He is a graduate of Georgia Tech class of 2004, with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with honors. His innovative approach to MEP engineering comes from graduating GE’s Engineering Leadership Program, where he designed wind turbines and biofuel power plant engines. Michael’s passion within design is energy efficiency and green technology.

56% of People Own at Least One Wearable, as Google Competes for Market Share

56% of People Own at Least One Wearable, as Google Competes for Market Share

More than half of people (56%) own at least one wearable in the U.S., according to a new survey by The Manifest, a business news and how-to site. Furthermore, 13% of people plan to invest in a wearable in the next year, demonstrating the growing popularity of fitness trackers and smartwatches.

The smartwatch market will only grow more competitive. Google recently bought Fitbit for $2.1 billion, bringing new opposition to a market currently dominated by Apple.

The Manifest analyzed what Google will need to do to compete with Apple.

As Apple's biggest wearable competitor, Fitbit gives Google insight into what customers want in a device so Google can create its own unique smartwatch.

Google invested in creating its own wearable software, Wear OS. The company has not focused on building the necessary hardware, though.

Fitbit, however, has been recognized for its hardware's impressive user experience (UX). This could be a valuable asset to Google.

Google could combine its Wear OS software and Fitbit's clean hardware into one smartwatch, creating a threat to Apple's control of the market.

Still, Google has an uphill battle against Apple as it competes with a brand that already has a winning smartwatch product and the largest cut of the wearable market.

Most People Wear Their Fitness Tracker or Smartwatch All the Time, Indicating Demand for Longer Battery Life

Battery life is a concern for users who wish to keep track of their daily activities without pause. Half of people (50%) wear their fitness tracker or smartwatch all the time and 31% of people wear their device consistently.

A product's long battery life can appeal to users who want uninterrupted usage.

Apple Watch's battery life lasts up to 18 hours, which means within the cycle of a day, the watch must be charged.

Fitbit, however, has extended the battery life of its smart watches, Versa and Ionic, to four to five days.

Google may use Fitbit's longer battery life to create a more seamless experience for customers who want to use their smartwatch uninterrupted.

The Manifest's 2019 Wearables Survey included 581 people who were familiar with wearables and other IoT technology.

Neurovalens Unveils Modius SLEEP, a Genius Next-Gen Device Powered by Neuroscience to Optimize Sleep Health and Address the Global Sleep Crisis, Without Medication

Neurovalens Unveils Modius SLEEP, a Genius Next-Gen Device Powered by Neuroscience to Optimize Sleep Health and Address the Global Sleep Crisis, Without Medication

Neurovalens, a global HealthTech company focused on developing innovative neuroscience-powered products to improve lives, today launches its Modius SLEEP campaign on Indiegogo. The device follows the success of the Company's first headset, Modius SLIM, which raised $2.5M on Indiegogo in 2017, gaining worldwide popularity with orders from 80+ countries around the world, and has continued to reach over a half million user sessions. 

Modius SLEEP continues the Company's mission to improve global health and wellness by providing drug-free, neurological solutions. For the duration of the campaign on Indiegogo, Modius SLEEP is available from $249 and will eventually retail for $499. The campaign can be found here: https://igg.me/at/modiussleep

"After gathering feedback from thousands of SLIM users, we found that improved sleep was a welcomed bonus and this became our motivation for making changes to our technology to create Modius SLEEP," said Jason McKeown, CEO and founder of Neurovalens. "Our new headset taps into the power of the brain's hypothalamus, which influences many areas of the brain, including weight loss and sleep. Our aim is to help people avoid sedatives and sleeping pills as they only mask the problem and come with a host of nasty side effects. We use neuroscience to improve lives through safe, innovative products and we have complete confidence our SLEEP device is as life changing as our SLIM device continues to be."

In an initial 30-day study, 95% of Modius SLEEP users improved their overall sleep score with 85% claiming that they were more satisfied with their sleep patterns. Additionally, 71.3% of survey respondents with sleep issues reported positive changes when using Modius SLEEP.

The Modius SLEEP headset is worn for 30 minutes before bed and does not have to be worn in bed. It works by sending a safe electrical pulse into the vestibular nerve that influences the areas of the hypothalamus and brain stem that control the user's circadian rhythm and sleep patterns.

GranTurismo Zèda projects Maserati towards the future: from the Modena plant the new era for the Brand begins

GranTurismo Zèda projects Maserati towards the future: from the Modena plant the new era for the Brand begins

Maserati takes another step towards a new chapter of its story.
With the announcement of its plans regarding production innovations, electrification and autonomous driving, the renovation work is commencing on the Viale Ciro Menotti in Modena, Maserati GranTurismo stops rolling off the assembly line and a special GranTurismo Zèda is unveiled.

GranTurismo Zèda: from "Z" in anticipation of a New GranTurismo

Maserati unveils a celebratory car all set to tour the world in anticipation of the arrival of a new GranTurismo. The unique model, sporting futuristic exterior shades designed by Centro Stile Maserati, tells the story of the dawn of a new era through colours and materials: GranTurismo Zèda is the bridge which connects the past, the present and the future of the Brand.

Observing the model from the rear section to the front, the surfaces change and become richer, shifting from a light satin finish to a burnished "metallurgic" effect. The midsection slowly morphs once again, deepening all the way to Maserati blue. The blue also evolves, becoming energetic, electric, it seems alive, it seems like a mirror. The finished overall effect is a masterclass in the complex use and juxtaposition of vastly differing effects. Through manual skills we go back in time, with today's technology and know-how constantly evolving towards the future.

Production of the Maserati GranTurismo comes to an end and work begins in the Modena plant to update the production line

The end of production of the Maserati GranTurismo and GranCabrio marks the beginning of a new path for the Modena plant. Work is already under way to update the production line in view of a total renovation that will see the facility devoted to the construction of the new super sports model, a high-performance car, characterised by state-of-the art technology and scheduled to be presented in 2020.

In parallel, work has already started on a paint shop, a completely new addition to the facility, equipped with low environmental-impact, innovative technologies and boasting a special design enabling customers to personally view the painting of their cars.

Maserati GranTurismo since 2007 in the Olympus of the GTs

The GranTurismo, presented at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2007, represents a milestone in the history of Maserati. This four-seat, two-door coupé, with Pininfarina's classic design and a naturally aspirated 8-cylinder engine, came into being as a modern interpretation of the Maserati A6 1500 of 1947, and has come to be considered, over the course of time, one of the most emblematic cars ever constructed by Maserati. In 2009, where it was debuted at the Frankfurt International Motor Show, the GranCabrio joined the GranTurismo.

After various updates, the GranTurismo saw its final and last version with the MY18, in which an efficient restyling effort improved the aerodynamics, ergonomics and infotainment systems. The MY18 offered the iconic coupé in 16 exterior colours. Also available were 14 light alloy wheels in six different designs, brake callipers available in nine colours, and Exterior Carbon and Exterior Body Colour packs. With the MY18 the GranTurismo and GranCabrio range included two versions distinguished by a powerful, distinctive identity: Sport and MC (Maserati Corse). Creating over 400,000 possible combinations. The Maserati GranTurismo represents the maximum expression of the Brand's GT character thanks to the charismatic 4.7 litre Ferrari V8 engine capable of delivering 460 hp at 7,000 rpm and 520 Nm of maximum torque at 4,750 rpm. Innumerable successes have been tallied up by GranTurismo and GranCabrio in the years from 2007 to today; more than 40,000 exemplars have been sold throughout the world, of which 28,805 GranTurismo and 11,715 GranCabrio.
