If you didn’t make it to Las Vegas, but you’re still interested in knowing what’s going on at the world’s largest tech showcase, we’ve got you covered. This year’s show is shaping up to be the biggest show on record with nearly 200,000 attendees in addition to thousands of companies at the show. Companies – large and small – show off their ware all week long. There are often a ton of interesting products coming from small startups that people have never heard of. That’s why this show is so incredible. Yesterday, most of the announcements came from Sony, Samsung and LG. What were the announcements? Read on to find out more.
LG Rollable OLED TV
What is a rollable TV you ask? Well, it’s a TV that can roll up. It’s that simple. At least in concept. The TV that LG has developed, rolls up into a base. I think what most people picture is a TV that rolls up like a piece of paper. And that’s kind of what’s happening here, but not quite. The problem? LG isn’t going to have an actual rollable TV ready in 2018, but rather they have a prototype available. Which is still incredibly cool. I really like the way that you can display different sizes of the TV for different functions.
LG Signature OLED TV 4K HDR Smart TV
That’s a mouthful, don’t you think? While LG isn’t going to be able to release the rollable TV in 2018, they are still giving you a paper-thin OLED TV. This TV is a follow up to last year’s TV, which was affectionately referred to as the wallpaper TV. This TV is very similar to last year’s model in many ways, such as its thickness of 2.57 mm, and a special zero-gap mount. This years model features a new processor, support for multiple HDR standards, Google Assistant integration and enhanced voice control.
Samsung “The Wall” TV
Should Samsung really be calling their new TV “the wall”? That aside, this TV shows that they too are a contender in this TV war. Last year, Samsung released their TV, called “The Frame”. The goal of the design of this TV was to make it look like a piece of art when it’s not being used. The Wall consists of multiple modular MicroLED displays. The screens have no bezels, so they can combine to form a single massive 8K television that measures 146″ diagonally. If you have the space for it, and a ton of income, this might be the one to buy. While the video is for “The Frame”, I think it gives you an idea of what this TV is capable of.
Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector (LSPX-A1)
If you’ve got a ton of money just lying around, you should consider getting one of these. It won’t be available until later in the year, but it will be worth the wait. It’s a gorgeous piece of tech that marries an ultra-bright 4K projector with a Glass Sound Speaker that pumps out crystal clear 360 degree sound. It looks like a fancy media console, and it can be placed just 9.6″ away from the wall that it’s projecting onto. It supports a picture size of up to 120 inches and the laser projector has a peak brightness of 2500 lumens.
