Innovative ideas from CES 2019
LG OLED Rollable TV
CES is known for showcasing groundbreaking televisions, and this year’s event does not disappoint! LG is rolling out its futuristic Rollable OLED TV and it’s spectacular.
Not only is the picture quality dazzling, but this TV will let you maximize the space in your home. In full view, the display rolls out and rises on your demand and disappears without a trace when you’re done watching. Check it out below:
Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire electric motorcycle
Yep, Harley-Davidson is getting into the electric vehicle market. The LiveWire electric motorcycle is available for pre-orders already and will arrive officially later this year, in August.
And you don’t have to worry about losing speed just because it’s electric. It has the power to go from 0 to 60 in less than 3.5 seconds and features a high-voltage battery that has an estimated range of 110 miles. Check out the following video to get a glimpse at what it is all about:
Speaking of innovative vehicles, how about one that can walk? Think of it kinda like a Transformer if you will.
The Hyundai Elevate is a car with “legs.” They’ve literally reinvented the wheel with this one.
This spectacular concept car isn’t limited by traditional wheels. It has legs attached to its wheels that allow the vehicle to “drive, walk, or even climb over the most treacherous terrain.”
Hyundai is calling it the “Ultimate Mobility Vehicle” that is perfect for emergency responders who need to go anywhere. It’s still in development, but take a look at the video below to see the concept:
EyeForcer smart glasses
Here’s an idea to help get rid of all those troubling neck pains that come with using your everyday gadgets. Medical Wearable Solutions has developed smart glasses called EyeForcer that will help do the trick.
They are prescription-friendly, unisex frames that are designed to help prevent “text neck” and other posture-related problems associated with the use of mobile devices. Simply connect your EyeForcer frames to the EyeForcer app to help protect your back, neck and spine.
It uses sensor technology to measure the angle that you’re looking at your handheld devices. When your posture is in bad form, you’ll receive a warning signal through a small LED light installed on the frames and through the app. The LED light turns off once you’ve corrected your posture.
Instant Pot incorporates Google Assistant
If you’re a fan of Instant Pot, you’re going to love this! Instant Brands announced at CES that its Smart Wi-Fi pressure cooker now supports Google Assistant.
That means you’ll be able to cook with your Instant Pot using voice commands. For example, just say “Hey Google, set the program on my cooker to rice” and it will begin the rice function. Watch the following video for a brief overview of the Instant Pot Smart Wi-Fi.
Those are just a few products causing a buzz at CES this year. Check back tomorrow, and every day this week for more groundbreaking tech that’s being introduced.
