Ingenious technology-based products steal the spotlight at Global Sources Hong Kong Show

A major highlight in this year’s Global Sources Hong Kong Show is products that apply new technology to improve people’s quality of life.
Smart Fitness Mirror

A shining example is the Smart Fitness Mirror developed by KTC, a Shenzhen-based technology company specializing in commercial displays. The product that has aroused strong interest serves as both a high-resolution screen displaying videos and as a mirror.

Equipped with an HD mirror screen and an 8MP HD camera, the innovative product can be used to watch video playing on the screen as well as a mirror to see one’s own reflection. It is, therefore, perfect for sports enthusiasts who can work out while playing fitness training videos on the Smart Fitness Mirror, and at the same time, they can check whether their movements are correct.

“Through our Smart Fitness Mirror, users can enjoy their personal fitness course as if they are in a gym,” the company’s Ms. Xiong said. “This ingenious product is popular in the mainland, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, as people often faced quarantine shutdowns and had no option but to do workouts at home.”

“The beauty of this product is its versatility,” she added. “If you switch off the product, it serves as a mirror only. Once you turn it on, you can play all kinds of videos on the screen.”

Xiong said many overseas buyers from various countries including Canada, Germany and Saudi Arabia have expressed interest in the product. “Most of them have never worked in the gym industry and found our new product fascinating,” she noted. “Many buyers have approached us to inquire about specification details and pricing.”

“We have high hopes of drumming up more business as the Show is a handy platform in reaching out for potential buyers,” said Ms. Xiong.

Fast Mobile Phone Charger

Meanwhile, some suppliers have worked hard to enhance users’ experience with their mobile phones.

Shenzhen PILOT Technology Company has developed a range of fast chargers for phones. The fastest charger could shorten the charging time for a mobile phone with no power from hours to only 15 minutes.

“All chargers with a power of 65W or above are considered high-power chargers, and can fully charge a phone in about 15 to 30 minutes,” said the company’s Sales Manager Zoe Zhu.

“We have successfully developed these fast chargers by adding functional chips to the products and increasing the power,” Zhu explained.

Zhu noted that there had not been a strong demand for high-power fast chargers, as most people still want to buy chargers of 20W to 30W, which are compatible with Apple products. “That appears to be an important consideration,” she added.

Zhu pointed out that high-power chargers are usually more expensive as they contain multiple sockets, as well as high technology chips which entail higher research and development costs. “Take a 100W fast charger, for example, it will cost around RMB140, but a 20W charger is only RMB23 to RMB24,” she said.

Zhu said their major clientele are overseas buyers, and their inability to be physically present hampers product introduction and business negotiations.
