    LG's New TV Rolls Away When Not In Use

    The 4K HDR Smart TV from LG was back at CES 2019, improved from its debut in 2018 and ready for the market. Calling the television - which is only available in 65" - "a piece of stand-alone art, draped in a harmonious blend of pure metal and high-end wool," LG re-imagines the television's place as center of the room. With a screen that rolls away like a poster, the TV looks like a minimalist piece of furniture when not in use.

    The innovation doesn't stop there. The television can also be put into "line view," exposing only a quarter of the screen and showing a special home page with customizable modules like weather, photos, or ambient designs. With a Dolby Atmos sound system that can be used while the screen is rolled away, LG's TV seems to want to earn its place as the center of a room.

    This Interactive Projection Module Makes Everything A Touchscreen

    Smaller than a credit card, the BML100PI module from Bosch uses a laser to create a "focus-free image on any surface and then scans it line-by-line to detect any gestures or finger movements." In short? It makes any surface a touch screen.

    When it debuted at CES 2019 in January, Bosch's projector was shown as a way to make a smart closet that could assist you in dressing for the day - seeing what clothes were available, what the weather was, and even what clothes went together. The module isn't meant for direct consumer purchase, but to be integrated into consumer products. With applications that range from "smart shelves" to providing a secondary virtual touch screen for industrial applications, the possibilities seem endless.

    Though it's not a gadget or a product so much as a possibility, the sleek IBM Q System One offers a fresh future of computing. Described by IBM as "the world’s first fully integrated universal quantum computing system designed for scientific and commercial use." Using quantum bits, or qubits, quantum computing allows for speed and computing processes that would vastly outperform current machines.

    As it's more of a working computing concept than something you can order on Amazon, the price of the computer isn't available at this time. Customers can, however, perform quantum calculations over the internet with the computer.

    Sure, widescreen and curved monitors are nothing new, but the latest gaming monitor from Samsung offers 49-inches of curved, 3840 × 2160 full 4K resolution diplay that they say is an industry first when paired with its 2,500:1 contrast ratio. Ultra thin bezels and a fabric-covered back finish off this professional looking and powerfully capable monitor.

    The combination of resolution and size gives you the equivelant of two 27-inch displays in one engrossing view.

    Samsung finally teased the release of their forthcoming "foldable phone" technology at their developer conference in November and tech industry insiders are buzzing about the possibilities... and the cost. The phone will potentially be called the "Galaxy F" and will feature two primary screens. One screen on the outside of the device will function like a normal smartphone, but open it up and you will have access to a tablet screen twice the size.

    The phone is expected to debut in March of 2019 and will feature a projected price point of $1,770, though this number has yet to be confirmed. It will also feature 5G support and a number of other features yet to be confirmed by the company. Foldable screens have been in development for years, but this will be the first consumer device to reach the market. Will it be the next iPhone or just another gimmick? Only time will tell...

    Everybody always seems together in the kitchen and Samsung must have had that in mind when they built the Family Hub Refridgerator. Designed to take the place of Amazon or Google's digital assistants, the latest generation the fridge uses Bixby, an assistant with AI capabilities. Programmed to recognize individual family members, Bixby can deliver a Morning Brief tailored to each person's needs, manage other SmartThings devices, and be a personalized family message board and scheduling center.

    Of course, the Family Hub is also a fridge and is designed to provide healthier food management through meal planning, food inventory, and shopping lists.
