LG had some great product announcements at this year’s CES. One in particular was pretty unbelievable and I could not wait to see it in person at their booth.
But before I get into that, I have to talk about the entrance to their booth. LG always has a spectacular booth entrance display, but this one was pretty amazing. There are over 250 LG OLED TV panels that are curved in a way where the viewer can get immersed into the visuals. Especially the ones with the floating lanterns. I had posted a short clip of the visual entrance display on our twitter.
One of LG’s biggest announcements and showstopper at the press conference was the LG Signature OLED TV R. The 65” screen of this TV rolls into the base stand of the unit. Depending on what you are doing, the screen has 3 view modes: Line View, standard view and ultra-wide screen.It features Dolby Atmos sound with Alexa and Google Assistant built in. It should be available sometime in Fall 2019.
Also announced were an 88” OLED and 75” LCD. PTVs are getting thinner and thinner.
Going forward, all LG products will have advanced ThinQ technology. This will enable your LG product to learn, suggest and anticipate functions ahead of time using your Lifestyle Data. For example: if you decide to have your air purifier turned off, it will, but it will also check local weather conditions in the area and based off those conditions it may suggest you might want to turn it back on at a set time.
The design of the Dashboard interface has been updated and redesigned. The 2019 LG models will include Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple Airplay support.
LG also showcased their HU85L laser projector. This projector can fill a 120” screen from just 7” away. Picture is pretty bright with no distortions to the image that I noticed.
LG is releasing a new LG Styler clothing care machine that has more capacity and a little bit larger in size than the previous model.
Newest addition to their appliances if the LG HomeBrew. Craft your own beer right in the comfort of your own home using the capsules pods. Five types of beer are available to choose from. LG is working with Muntons, a well known supplier in the UK, on the pods. Beer takes two weeks to craft 1.3 gallons. Unit self cleans itself.
Lastly, we have the LG CLOi robot assistants and the new exo-skeleton device that assists the wearer to lift more than normal.
