About

We give you Morus Zero - the world’s first countertop tumble dryer equipped with Vacuum+™ dehydration technology which dries clothes in a jiffy whilst consuming less energy. It is designed for any home, and even your boat and RV!

How does it work? 

- Evaporation rate of water is factored by temperature, pressure, surface area and so on...

- To increase the evaporation rate of water, Morus Zero not just uses heat, but also lower the air pressure inside the dryer. 

- By using the large-flow pump and adjustable inlet and outlet, Morus Zero can create a chamber of lower atmospheric pressure, meanwhile allows a certain amount of warm air pass through to supplement the energy loss by water evaporation.

We have made a video to clarify its working principle and efficiency. You can have a look through this link

We found that over 50% of tumble dryer users were not satisfied with the drying performance such as dryness and drying time, while more than 40% complained about high energy consumption.

Standard home tumble dryers just take too long to dry even the smallest of wash loads. They take up too much home space and can rack up a fortune in energy bills and even damage fabrics, but with Morus Zero, all of those are a thing of the past.  

  •  Dry as well as fresh 

The built-in UV sterilization effectively eliminates 99.9% of bacteria during the ultrafast drying time. It’s also environmentally friendly since there are no dangerous or toxic chemicals to handle. So not only does Morus Zero keep your clothes dry, but also keeps them clean from any nasty bacteria!

  • Drying clothes just got smarter

The moisture sensor system automatically turns off the device when Morus Zero can no longer detect moisture within the clothes and the drying is finished. Just press “Start”, sit back, relax and let Morus Zero do the rest. It’s that simple. 

  • Say goodbye to wrinkles

Unlike the single-motor design of other conventional dryers, Morus Zero has three high-performance motors inside, one of which is used to drive the drum to rotate independently. Our program can precisely control the direction, speed and even acceleration of the tumble. In this way the clothes can be dried evenly and come out with fewer wrinkles. 

  •  Plug in and go 

The compact design of the Morus Zero makes it an ideal choice for small living spaces, like starter homes, cramped city apartments and even RVs. Basically, you can place it anywhere. It is convenient to install, and there is no ventilation needed, making it easy to get started with the Morus Zero right away.  

  •  More emojis are on their way ^_< 

Easily select the drying mode you like. Its clear display will show you all the information you want to know. 

  • Mold problem? No problem!

Its ventless design effectively prevents mold growth in your home. Instead of disposing the water into the air by ventilation, the detachable water tank collects and stores the moisture evaporating from the clothes, and the built-in water level sensor notifies when the tank needs to be emptied.

Morus combines a sleek minimalist design with patented Vacuum+™ dehydration technology changing the way you dry your clothes & giving you more time to enjoy what you do best. Thanks to Vacuum+™ dehydration technology, ultraviolet light and infrared heating, Morus Zero takes your drying experience to a new level. 

The water has a lower boiling point at lower pressures. Morus Zero uses a compact high-performance vacuum pump to create a low-pressure environment which allows water to evaporate at a higher speed.

Morus Zero uses a custom-built, high-performance Neodymium magnet brushless motor to drive a vacuum pump that delivers multiple times the energy density compared to conventional asynchronous motors. 

Its 3.3lb capacity is perfect for your daily change outfits.

While at CES we met some very friendly faces that stopped in awe and wonder by our stall to see the Morus Zero tumble dryer. During the 4 days at CES in Las Vegas, we were more than happy with the reception and received a lot of great feedback from attendees.

The clothes after spin dried normally contain 10%-30% of water. While in our demo the clothes were wrung dried by hand so it had more moisture (40%). 

The water content here is the weight of water divided by the weight of the wet clothes. According to CFR, RMC (remaining moisture content) is the weight of water divided by the weight of dry clothes. In this case, the RMC of the item in the test is 66.6%.

Morus Zero has two color options - Chalk White and Lava Gray. You can select the color you like in our post-campaign survey later.

Risks and challenges

We have spent more than 24 months making Morus Zero become a reality. After 5 generations of engineering prototypes with plenty of development and testing, we are ready to enter the mass production stage. We are dedicated to delivering the product after all our perfections. However, there could possibly be small changes made to the final product that will be shipped out to you.

We are now working very closely with our manufacturers and also looking to optimize our supply chain to keep the delivery time as we promise. Unexpected delays in production can still be a possibility which may push back our estimated delivery date. We promise we'll update all our backers on at least a monthly basis about whatever progress we have achieved.
