LG’s OLED W-Series:
LG’s OLED technology has been showcased at CES for three years, but the W-series was spectacular enough to maintain the attention. Measuring 2.6 millimeters thick, LG has produced a very thin television that hangs like a poster. The picture quality has improved and the television supports HDR standards with a stock Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar.
Lego has inspired generations of children to build like architects and design like engineers. Now Lego is moving into technology by allowing their creations to come to life by providing coding tools to “boost” the models personality. Lego Boost takes its familiar blocks and combines them with movement and sound powered by an app-based coding environment. The toy set is set to release in the second half of 2017, and will retail at $160.
This aftermarket head-up display for your car connects to your phone via Bluetooth and sits on your dashboard. The device projects an image that adapts to various light conditions allowing the driver to focus on the road rather than a smartphone screen. There are built-in sensors for hand gestures to manage calls, messages, GPS and car information. There’s also a dial that can be attached to the steering wheel to be used for navigation.
The AirBar is a device that plugs into the USB port on a MacBook Air or PC and sits beneath the display. Once it’s attached, the AirBar allows the computer to become a touchscreen. The device works by sending up a light field that your finger disrupts by swiping and tapping. The company sells both 13-inch and 15-inch models.
