Walk around the LG booth at CES with us as we explore the TVs, phones and gadgets of the show.
The entrance to LG's stand was consistently, absolutely packed full of people. A grand total of 140 screens lined the front wall, offering viewers the chance to see a huge 3D display in action.
There were plenty of curved televisions on show at LG's stand, including this curved Ultra HD model at 105 inches. With a 21:9 aspect ratio, it also comes with a U-shaped speaker underneath the television to offer better sound.
As you will see further down, many of the televisions released this year will be deliberately branded 4K, rather than Ultra HD, to help consumers realise that they are one and the same.
The curved televisions continue with LG's OLED range. Elsewhere on the floor, LG gave a demonstration of its flexible 4K curved TV which curved on cue using a remote control.
One of the biggest developments for LG's Smart TV range is the introduction of WebOS, the operating system that the company bought from HP. The demos at CES all showcased how easy it is to set up WebOS from scratch, introducing how to use the magic remote with a series of fun games and animations.
LG will offer an SDK to encourage developers to work on local apps for content distributors.
With all the buzz surrounding wearable tech, it's no surprise that LG has its own take on the concept. The Lifeband Touch, however, is more than a standard fitness tracker, offering an OLED touchscreen plus Bluetooth connectivity, basic smartphone controls and notifications. Though nothing has been confirmed officially, the odds are pretty good that Australians will see the Lifeband released locally in 2014.
Also on show was the LG Chromebase, a desktop alternative to the portable Chromebook. It features a 21.5-inch IPS screen and Celeron processor, with all the main components — except for the keyboard and mouse — located inside the one unit.
The updated version of LG's Gallery OLED was on display, featuring a speaker integrated behind the TV frame.
Also on the computing front, LG had a true 4K monitor on display offering a resolution of 4096x2160.
If it's not curved, it's ... curved. And bendable. This is the LG G Flex, hidden behind its cover, which is of course the company's curvy smartphone. It can withstand some pressure and flatten out, so if you sit on it accidentally there's no risk of breakage. Also, the self-healing back cover coating means that scratches are no longer an issue. The G Flex will be available exclusively through Harvey Norman from next month.
There were plenty of demonstrations ofwhich link a number of devices into the vision of the connected home. There was even a show of dancing robotic vacuum cleaners. But elsewhere on the regular appliances front, LG's Aqua Clean Enamel promises to make your oven clean again in just 20 minutes. Spray water and leave the enamel to work. Then, after 20 minutes, wipe clean.
