ARBORA | Faber Peak's beautifully redesigned, nature-inspired Arbora Bistro

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
One Faber Group is unveiling three new offerings: the redesigned Arbora, refreshed Miraculous 2, and revamped Faber Peak Gift Shop!
Gex & I got to enjoy a three-course dinner at the beautifully redesigned, nature-inspired Arbora Bistro, before talking a short stroll to tour Arbora's new outdoor children's play area and Faber Peak's new Gift Shop -- answering the question of what it would be like to shop inside a giant cable car! To end the night, we went on a magical adventure across different worlds with Miraculous 2, Faber Peak's first video mapping multimedia magic light show, which has been completely refreshed since its launch earlier this year.

BenQ Eye Care Monitor GW2480T

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Founded on the corporate vision of “Bringing Enjoyment ‘N’ Quality to Life”, BenQ Corporation is a world-leading human technology and solutions provider aiming to elevate and enrich every aspect of consumers’ lives. To realize this vision, the company focuses on the aspects that matter most to people today – lifestyle, business, healthcare and education – with the hope of providing people with the means to live better, increase efficiency, feel healthier and enhance learning. Such means include a delightful broad portfolio of people-driven products and embedded technologies spanning digital projectors, monitors, interactive large-format displays, digital cameras and camcorders, mobile computing devices, and lighting solutions. Because it matters.


E-learning is a trend. Kids and digital screens are nearly inseparable these days. Children at an early age spend more time on laptops or tablets with a short viewing distance or in dim light. These are the main reasons that cause short-sightedness and as much as I try to control Aaryanna's screen time, I know it is inevitable.

Children at an early age, especially middle school students, spend more time on laptops or tablets with a short viewing distance or in dim light. Though laptops and tablets are convenient and highly portable, they are not suitable for doing research or creating content because a small-sized display is bad for eyes and bone growth.

BenQ was the first brand to be certified by TUV for Flicker- Free and Low Blue-light. In their new generation of monitors, they continued to focus on eye care features, with customers’ eye health. BenQ released a new feature termed as Brightness Intelligence. As the term implies, the monitor, via a sensor, detects the ambient light condition and adjust the brightness, and or color temperature of the screen automatically.

The GW2480T with Flicker-Free Technology, Low Blue Light Technology, Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I. Tech.), Color Weakness Mode, and Height Adjustment Stand can solve these problems and do even more to enhance learning. Students can concentrate more on their studies and have better learning efficiency without feeling eye strain or potentially developing myopia.

  Best for middle school students in digital learning
 24 inches, 16:9 aspect ratio
 1920x1080 resolution
 Height Adjustment Stand (HAS)
 Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I. Tech.)

 Color Weakness Mode
 IPS panel
 HDMI 1.4 / DisplayPort 1.2 / D-sub / Headphone jack


BenQ Eye Care Monitor GW2480T Product Features:

 Studying with the correct Seating Position
Studying with improper posture could result in vision problems as well as affect children's bone growth. BenQ GW2480T with Height Adjustment Stand that can be customized for height, tilt, pivot, and swivel makes it fit better with different stages of growth.

 Study with the Proper Display Brightness 
 Most of students don't manually adjust the display brightness according to the ambient light every day. BenQ's unique Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I. Tech.) can automatically adjust the monitor's brightness according to the ambient light. The B.I. sensor can sense the brightness of our surroundings throughout the day, and automatically adjusts display brightness to deliver the most comfortable viewing experience.

 Low Blue Light for Better Sleep Quality
The blue light emitted from digital devices can lower the production of melatonin and disrupts students’ sleep quality. The GW2480T with Low Blue Light Technology filters out harmful blue light (420~480nm) for both good sleep quality and eye health.

 Flicker-Free Makes for Better Viewing Comfort 
Screen flickering can put extra stress on students' eyes, causing excessive blinking and frequent rubbing of the eyes. A conventional LCD screens flicker at the rate of 250 times per second, which is invisible to naked eyes. If students look at a monitor for 8 hours, their eyes perceive about 5.8 million flickers.The GW2480T with Flicker-Free Technology can effectively diminish eye fatigue for better viewing comfort and studying efficiency. 

 Study with Real Color 
For children who like creating art, color weakness might likely affect their color resignation and interest in art learning. The GW2480T with a Color Weakness Mode gives students a better perception of natural color by offering filters for red color deficiency (or protanomaly) and green color deficiency (deuteranomaly).

 And many more...

Here you can see Aaryanna enjoying her youtube videos, however, this is not an ergonomic table. I don't usually let her sit that close to the screen. This is solely for picture taking purposes only. However, as she's entering Primary School next year, we are on the lookout for an ergonomic table for her to have a full range solution for her eye care. If you guys have any recommendations, please share them with us!
