APN, PR, 3rd November 2005.
Microheat, Inc has just introduced
HotShot Wireless, a radio frequency upgrade to
HotShot, the revolutionary hot washer fluid windshield
cleaning and de-icing system.
Microheat's research and development
team adapted HotShot's advanced technology into a wireless
system that drivers can easily install themselves.
The original HotShot, an award-winning
system, has been available in the aftermarket for
over a year and is now being featured in GM Showrooms on
the 2006 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne.
Thanks to HotShot, drivers no longer
have to scrape ice and grime from their windshield, a
problem that has haunted drivers since the invention of
wiper blades 75 years ago. Market research shows that
within a few years, HotShot will be a standard feature on
all new vehicles.
"The innovation behind HotShot
Wireless is a huge advancement for the product and for our
company," said Microheat President and CEO Gary
Pilibosian. "This wireless system can be easily
plugged into an automobile by any driver, making the
product easily accessible and affordable to drivers
throughout the world."
HotShot has been the recipient of
numerous awards including: Frost & Sullivan's
2005 Excellence in Emerging Technologies Best Practices
Award; Popular Mechanics deemed it the
"Outstanding Achievement in New Product Design and
Innovation." RoadStar Magazine and Newport
Publications awarded Microheat in 2004. Microheat has
been named one of 22 finalists for the 2006 Automotive
News PACE Awards, which celebrate innovation by
original-equipment suppliers of products and processes.
Introduced commercially in 2002,
HotShot features a patented cycling technology that
intelligently heats fluid to an exact temperature and
sprays the fluid at a precise time interval to quickly and
efficiently remove snow, ice, bugs and road grime from
vehicles. The all-season, all-weather system can be
activated at any time during vehicle operation.
