Aquatop将LED灯应用到磁性藻桶中,藻桶还可以进一步创新吗?

Aquatop研发了一款新产品LED添加到磁性藻让我们思考磁性藻桶是否可以进一步创新

 

首先,我们观察一下这款LEDAquatop它的外形为三角形常见的藻桶不同LED灯的实用性适中,但24.95美元的售价是否其他藻桶产品,如MagFloat公司MagFlip更划算呢这种简便的工具还可以作出更多创新

 

过去几年,藻桶产品在不断发展,从浮动磁铁、防摩擦衬垫带有可拆卸刮的垫子圆滑的角落放大镜,到现在甚至加入了LED灯。人们还将高科技运用到藻桶产品中,研发出自动藻桶、带摄像的藻桶等,所以这类产品还能怎样发展呢?

 

磁铁的形状也只长方正方形圆形和三角形无法作出更多变化其他的改变也不能发挥什么作用。我的意思是虽然星形刮板很有趣,但是这能使工作更高效吗?

 

藻桶的尺寸只能变得更小或更大。清洁磁体的整体设计就是尽可能它们保持运行并减少干预,这样您就只按时擦洗即可如果尺寸太小,清洗很费劲或者无法清洗尺寸太大费更多,而且占地太大了!

 

机器人自动化应用到藻桶产品中是很酷,但是大多数爱好者花费数百美元来购买这样单一用途的工具吗?也许我们更愿意把钱花在应用更广泛的自动化工具维持生命技术新奇的鱼类或珊瑚

 

那么此类产品还怎样创新呢?Porthole viewer观察器和磁铁增添了产品的创意,改变了其单一用途。另外MOAI机器人清洁器中配备了一台照相机,为自动清洁器增加了另一项功能。

自动进料器或流动参数检查器应用到藻桶又如何?也许市面上很快就会出现一款自动清洁器,可以轻松清洁转角位、水族箱的底部和侧面。

 

虽然产品的细微进步令我们感到兴奋,但成本和用性是我们考虑的关键因素。

Aquatop adds LEDs to magnetic algae scrubber, can we innovate the algae scrubber any more?

Aquatop added LEDs to a magnetic algae scrubber and seeing the new product led us questioning can we innovate the magnetic algae scrubber any more?

 

First off, lets take a quick pass at the Aquatop algae magnet with LEDs. The triangular shape is a bit different from the norm and the LED lights are moderately useful, but at $24.95 is it worth the investment over other magnets like the MagFlip of MagFloat? Are there any more innovations we can bring to this handy tool?

Nano MagFloat excels at cleaning and turning corners

 

Over the last few years weve seen this handy tool evolve... from floating magnets, pads that dont scratch, ones with removable scrapers, get better into corners, a magnifying viewer and even LED lights. We have even seen these get high tech with automatic algae cleaners, cleaners with cameras, etc. So where else can these go?

 

The shape of magnets can only change so much - we have rectangles, squares, circles and triangular shapes. Not many other changes can be made to be effective. I mean a star-shaped scraper would be cool, but will it really clean any better?

 

The size can only go so far smaller or larger. The whole idea of cleaning magnets that people caught onto was just keeping them attached and out of the way as much as possible. This way you can just walk over and scrub as needed. Get too small and it takes too long to do or just doesnt have the power. Getting too big means it will cost a lot more and is just too damn big!

 

Robots and automation is cool, but do most hobbyists need to spend hundreds of dollars on a tool that serves one purpose like this? Wouldnt we rather spend the money on broader automation tools, life-support technology or cool new fish or corals?

The Portal viewer can magnify corals really well, Acro IDs will never be the same

 

What else can we have them do? The Porthole viewer and magnet was a fun way to break out of the single-purpose formula. Likewise, the MOAI is a robotic cleaner and a camera, adding at least another function to an automated cleaner.
