The Giz Wiz Show is far into it’s 13th year of production, and the fourth year of Independent Production! (The very first show was February 20th, 2006.) Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters we continue on! If it wasn’t for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you’d like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: ^(. You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that’s there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn’t exist without our viewer’s support, but a bit more support would be a big help. Thanks from OMGchad & DickDe!)
This week we check out three new, unique gadgets from CES 2019 Unveiled — a preview of things we’ll see at CES Las Vegas January, 2019.
Wash your dishes, clean your hats, cook your dinner — all in one really small appliance! Yep, that’s what the company says.
The Heatworks Tetra, an internet-connected compact countertop dishwasher requires no plumbing and can be placed and used anywhere with a standard electrical outlet. With a smaller capacity than the average dishwasher Tetra holds two full place settings or 10 plates or 12 pint glasses. There are no faucet connections required and water is loaded by hand so users know exactly how much water is being used – about a half a gallon per load. Tetra is transparent so you can see exactly where in the dishwashing cycle it is. It’s powered by Heatworks’ patented Ohmic Array Technology. It does not use traditional metal heating elements that can rust and scale over time. Instead, through graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls, the naturally occurring minerals in water are excited, directly and efficiently heating the water. But wait, there’s a LOT more! The company says because of the precise temperature control you can easily use the Tetra to sanitize baby products, wash plastic storage containers without melting, cook seafood, clean fruit, or run a load of wine glasses on a gentler cycle. All this in just 10 minutes a load. Now one of their press releases says Tetra will cost under $300 and will be available for purchase in late 2018. – Well it is late 2018, and at CES Unveiled 2019 we learned we would see a working model at CES 2019. So it seems the ‘on sale’ date is still far away.
