Exhibiting for the first time at the 2017 International CES, which opened today (Jan. 5) in Las Vegas, Furrion unveiled its new series of “future perfect” electronics for the home, showcased in the company’s ELYSIUM motorhome.
“We wanted to showcase all that Furrion has to offer at our first CES and the ELYSIUM does just that,” said Matt Fidler, chief marketing officer for Furrion, in a press release. “Not only is it luxury vehicle, but more so it allows us to show these products in a working home environment – even if it is a home on the go. We think consumers will respond well to the wide range of products we are offering that combine the best in technology advancements with clean, modern designs.
“Our company services four key industries, RV, yacht, business such as hotels and restaurants and now the home. As we continue to grow as a company into the mainstream consumer space, we knew the next step is to make sure we have an impactful presence at the world’s largest technology trade event.”
The ELYSIUM, which was also displayed a the Louisville Show, is 45 feet long, 8 feet wide, 13-feet, 6-inches high and is a fully operational luxury home on wheels. The coach is complete with state-of-the art Furrion electronics, including three large screen 75-inch HDTVs, infotainment systems, cameras, fireplace, and a complete kitchen with induction cooktop, convection microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, oven and a wine fridge. The ELYSIUM also features “future forward” technology including a smart toilet and smart shower.
The upper deck offers an entertainment area, hot tub and helicopter landing area where Furrion is displaying the Robinson R22 helicopter. The helicopter platform lowers above the master bedroom during transport. All the TVs feature Furrion’s proprietary Vibrationsmart and Climatesmart technology making sure the picture is always razor sharp regardless of the conditions. The ELYSIUM also features the latest in automation, observation and navigation.
Furrion’s exhibit in Booth No. 31269 will showcase technological advancements from all four business divisions including solar panels, professional kitchens, HDTVs and fireplaces. Making its debut at CES is Furrion’s Prosthesis, a 20-foot exobionic “mech suit” capable of running at a speed of more than 21 mph.
Prosthesis was built for the pilot and is the creation of responsive, stable and powerful exo-bionic platform that amplifies the motions of the pilot. Prosthesis is the first machine of its kind, ushering in a new era of large scale, high-performance “mech technology.” It represents a departure from conventional, human scale exo-bionic technology, integrating off-road racing with industrial motion control to produce an entirely new breed of human piloted machine.
