Anthro Introduces the YES Charging Cart Family at ISTE

Anthro Corporation, the Portland, Oregon manufacturer of furniture for technology, is proud to introduce the new YES Cart Family, our most innovative charging solutions yet. The YES Cart Family is available Summer 2014 and was shown for the first time at ISTE, the premier forum in the field of education technology.

The YES Cart family was designed to take away the headache of deciding which charging cart fits which device. Lift-and-set shelves and pop-and-go bays make the interior of the cart completely configurable, so the end user can adjust it to fit their current devices, their next devices, and the ones after that. One is only limited by the overall size of the cart, which is very small indeed!

It has been a long journey leading up to the YES Carts. When Anthro began designing charging solutions in 2002, laptops were the technology of choice. Since the introduction of mobile devices, we began to create a solution for every device and we noted how often people switch mobile devices. Because our charging solutions tend to last much longer than the life of a device, we knew there had to be a better way.

Adjustability, which has been a characteristic of almost all Anthro products since the beginning, was the answer yet again. The YES Carts have shelves and bays that are completely adjustable. They can be reconfigured when devices change, so they’re essentially future-proof. The YES Carts will fit devices today, tomorrow, and in the future.

There are four different versions of the YES Cart: the YES Cart for Mini-Laptops (like Chromebooks), the YES Cart for Tablets, the YES Cart for Tablets with Wired Sync, and the YES Cart for Mini-Laptops, Junior.

Chromebooks, Ultrabooks and Netbooks—basically any device with a 13” screen or smaller—fit perfectly in Anthro’s YES Cart for Mini-Laptops. Its bays and shelves adjust to fit from 1-36 mini-laptop devices of all shapes and sizes, with or without cases. This YES Cart also features a built-in power management system that alternates power from one side of the cart to the other. We also have a small version of the YES Cart for Mini-Laptops, called Junior, which holds from 1-20 devices.

The YES Cart for Tablets charges, stores, secures and transports from 1-40 tablet devices of all shapes and sizes. Adjust the YES Cart’s bays and shelves to mix and match regular-sized tablets with minis, minis with smartphones. It also has a small footprint (just a 24” square), so it’s easy to maneuver down narrow aisles and fit in cramped closets.

For users who use iOS devices and need built-in sync, we have the YES Cart for Tablets with Wired Sync, which has 32 USB ports that allow simultaneous sync and charge.

Anthro’s innovative YES Cart Family advances the art of charging. The carts start at $1629.00 MSRP, and as with all Anthro products, they come with a Lifetime Warranty and exceptional customer service.

Anthro Corporation, founded in 1984, designs and manufactures furniture for technology, including standing desks, radiology furniture, and all sizes of mobile carts.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
