Samsung Electronics introduced its first-ever water purifier as the tech giant enters the fast-growing home water purifier market amid the pandemic-induced stay-at-home trend.

Samsung unveiled the BESPOKE water purifier that is highlighted by space-efficient design and easy care features at its media event for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021.


The new water purifier will be launched in South Korea in the first quarter of the year, the company added, reports Yonhap news agency.

Samsung’s BESPOKE water purifier is an under-sink, modular-type product that offers enhanced customising options. Users can order the product with a single faucet or multiple faucets and select from a standard ambient, cold-ambient model or hot-cold model depending on their preferences, reports Yonhap news agency.

They can also install the filter module either vertically or horizontally under the sink.

Samsung said its water purifier, equipped with a four-level filter system, can filter a maximum 2,500 litres of water, which is enough for a four-person family to drink for a year.

While most water purifier makers offer maintenance services through technician visits, Samsung said it has applied auto smart care solution so that users can manage their products on their own amid the contactless trend.

The South Korean tech giant added it applied artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can analyze people’s water use data and send notices to their mobile devices when the purifiers require filter replacement.

With the latest product, Samsung is also expected to enter into fierce competition with local water purifier makers including Coway, LG Electronics and SK Magic.

Meanwhile, Samsung is working on a robot that can pick up laundry, load the dishwasher, set the table, pour wine, and even bring you a drink.

The robot is called Bot Handy, and Samsung says it’ll be able to recognize objects using a camera and AI, reports The Verge.

Now, researchers report that such therapies were filled with violations of government regulations, inflated medical claims and distorted public communication. There are reports of patients suffering physical harm -- including blindness and death -- from unproven stem cell therapies.

"Efforts to rapidly develop therapeutic interventions should never occur at the expense of the ethical and scientific standards that are at the heart of responsible clinical research and innovation," said lead study author Laertis Ikonomou, associate professor of oral biology at University at Buffalo, New York. There are clinics offering unproven and unsafe "stem cell" therapies that promise to prevent Covid-19 by strengthening the immune system or improving overall health, the researchers noted in the paper published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
