Acer Global Press Conference Recap: April 2023
The Acer Global Press Conference took place on April 20th, showcasing some of Acer’s most exciting new products. The theme of this year’s Global Press Conference was clear: creating a sustainable living environment for all. Jason Chen, the CEO, reiterated Acer’s strong interest in finding a balance between tech and nature and its passion for building a more sustainable future. Pushing the boundaries of tech-related creations, Acer’s team of experts constantly works to enhance the integration of our virtual and physical lives. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an integral part of its corporate strategy, Acer is committed to improving lives through medical intelligence, health and fitness, and eco-friendly computing.
E-mobility solutions with AI-powered ebii
In the US, vehicles create around 27 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions. These gasses contribute to global warming and threaten the future of our planet. With over half of US everyday car trips falling under three miles, e-bikes could be an emission-free alternative to cars. Along with the inherent health benefits of increased exercise, trading a car for a bike just once per day could decrease a person’s transport emissions by 67%. In short, bikes — particularly e-bikes — could be the future of city travel.
With ebii, Acer’s first AI-driven smart bike, city travel just got more exciting. Intelligent learning from ebii adapts to the rider’s unique pedaling powers and riding conditions, creating a more personalized experience over time.
Packed with smart AI features, riders can easily control the bike’s function through an app that displays real-time data such as riding speed and remaining battery. The built-in collision detection feature alerts riders of oncoming vehicles or objects for maximum safety. Moreover, ebii’s auto-lock system sends notifications if the bike has been moved unexpectedly.
Other features include:
- Fast-charging battery charges to 100% in just 2.5 hours.
- Air Fom flat-free tires remove the worry of returning to a flat tire after a long day in the office.
- Safer night-time riding with front, rear, and sidelights.
- Design features such as a low-stand height of 145 - 185mm make ebii accessible for all.
Eco-friendly solutions with Acer Vero
During the Global Press Conference, Acer announced the addition of multiple eco-friendly devices designed to improve our lives.
1) Acerpure Pro Air Purifier

Made with 100% recycled materials, the Acerpure Pro Air Purifier is Acer’s first sustainable air purifier. The device provides accessible eco-friendly solutions for all, improving air quality and eliminating 99% of PM 2.5 particles. In alignment with Acer’s vision of a more sustainable future, the air purifier uses 35% PCR in the chassis, reducing Co2 emissions during production by 20%.
2) Eco-friendly Vero Projector
This year’s Global Press Conference was full of surprises, with Acer unveiling its first eco-friendly projector.

3) Sustainable surfing with Aspire Vero laptops
Acer is committed to reducing its Co2 emissions. As such, Acer has increased its reduction of Co2 emissions from 21% to 30% already this year. With 40% PCR materials on the chassis and 50% on the adapter casing, the Aspire Vero laptop series is a testimony to Acer’s efforts to improve sustainability. And that is not all. Acer’s savvy tech team decreased the amount of printed circuit board materials, resulting in a 52% reduction in PCB surface area.
