CES is the biggest technology show in the world each year, so CES 2018 has undoubtedly set the tone for things to come for the next 12 months. Long story short, it’s going to be a good year for consumer tech.
Samsung “The Wall”
The Wall is the World’s First Modular MicroLED 146-inch TV. They feature 8K resolution, and fewer panels can be used to create a TV that isn’t quite as massive. Samsung hasn’t yet announced pricing or availability for The Wall, but this is undoubtedly one of the most impressive creations yet from the world’s #1 TV maker.
LG’s 2017 OLED TV
LG’s 2017 OLED TV lineup was arguably the best in the world last year, and the company continued its hot streak at CES 2018 by announcing the new LG Signature OLED TV W8. This stunning 77-inch television is less than 3mm thick, and it uses a special zero-gap mounting system to hang flush on any wall. OLED TV creates superior images by using self-lighting pixels. By eliminating the backlight and replacing it with pixels
that switch on and off individually, OLED screens are able to produce perfect black and display over a billion colours.
Sony 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector
With an artificial marble top, aluminum frame and wooden shelf, the LSPX-A1 transforms your living environment while complementing its decor. Inside its furniture-like design is a sophisticated 4K projector featuring large screen and Ultra Short Throw technologies, and it can sit just 9.6 inches from the wall. Despite that close distance, the 2,500-lumen laser projector is capable of beaming a screen that measures up to 120 inches diagonally. The same enclosure houses a Glass Sound Speaker with 360° sound, ensuring the best possible home theater experience without the need for any additional equipment. It’s aimed at the highest segment of the high-end market, and will carry a price tag of $30,000 when it launches.
Smart home security was a big theme at this year’s show, and the new Aura was one of the smartest solutions on display at CES 2018. This futuristic motion detection system doesn’t use cameras or infrared sensors like existing solutions. Instead, Aura monitors the Wi-Fi radio waves that fill every home and reads the patterns as they bounce off of walls and objects. When these patterns are interrupted, Aura knows that motion is occurring and it can set off alarms or trigger smart home events as a result. Plug the Aura Beacons right into the wall for a quick and easy setup.
UltraBright MultiView Screen
California-based startup MirraViz isn’t a household name yet, but this new screen could change all that. This revolutionary projector screen allows users to aim two different projectors at the same surface and produce two completely different images. The special display design bounces each projected image back in the same direction from which it came, allowing two people in two different positions to see different images on the same screen. Comes in 52″, 75″ and 94″ inch displays
