Haser Robot "laser" Personal Heater

Haser Quick Demo (1 min)

About. The Haser Robot Personal Heater heats only you wherever you are with a spotlight of radiant heat, even from a distance, even when you move, saving 40% or more on heating bills. It uses a webcam and AI (artificial intelligence) to track you. The video has an intro & a demonstration. It shows actual image processing footage from the unit. It's a bit crazy -- shaky camera time! Slides from the video are here.

How it works. Each possible object the webcam/computer sees is watched. When it detects a waving hand, it turns the heat on & focuses it on the person (in the video, shown by the box around the person turning yellow), always tracking, even when the person moves. It uses between 300 - 1000 Watts of power. You can turn up the heat by drawing a clockwise circle in the air with your arm and turn it down by drawing a counter-clockwise circle.  

Testing. To test it, we use a dark "hypercolor" jacket which changes color when heated. You can see the hand print created when it is touched firmly by a warm hand. Haser is able to put it in a spotlight of heat from 11ft away and change its color quickly. The heat itself is felt immediately, of course. A laser thermometer shows the sharp focus of the warmth: there is a 14°F difference between the jacket and its surroundings.

Many uses. Haser can be used in very many settings, including homes, offices, hospitals, outdoors, outdoor cafes, railway platforms, bus stations, hotel entrances (those poor doormen), factory & warehouse floors and even to melt snow on your driveway. It can even be used as floor radiant, heating the floor around you for even warmth. This takes a bit longer, of course.

Competitors. For contrast we use a competitor, Dyson's Bladeless Fan Heater. It costs about $400. The Dyson uses a whopping 1400-1700 Watts of power, measured at the wall socket using a Kill-a-Watt power meter. Its fan pushes warm air out (making it drier) about 7 feet but the feeling of warmth is very minimal. It takes about 3 times as long to warm an area, but it needs to be no more than 6 ft away -- half the distance of Haser. It is also quite loud -- Haser is mostly silent.  

Next steps. We are seeking licensing partner(s), manufacturers and sales channels. If you think you could have fun working with us on this,   email info@haser.us.  Thanks for watching!!!
