The curved design also creates a balanced and uniform distance of the viewer from the screen, which, along with the viewing angles and the high contrast from different angles of watching, makes TV watching more realistic.

LG did not yield to their compatriots and competitors and also presented a 105-inch curved UHD TV. The screen of its model 105UC9 has 21:9 aspect ratio and its resolution is 5120x2160 pixels. The result is a cinematic experience at home.

The aspect ratio of the screen coincides with that of the shooting of the majority of films, excluding the black areas that are often seen while watching a film on many flat-screen TVs. The wider screen allows the viewers to access information available on the sides of the screen, without stopping the broadcast. The new Ultra HD TV by LG offers high-quality sound from a 7.2 multichannel sound system positioned at the front and developed in conjunction with Harman/Kardon.

LG announced in Las Vegas that, this year, 70% of its smart TVs would operate with WebOS, which will replace the popular mobile operating system Android, which LG is currently using. The TVs will feature voice and gesture control as well. They will be presented on the Korean market first and then subsequently in Europe and the United States.

AMD surprised everyone with its prototype of an ultrathin computer that very much resembles a set-top box device. The device is named Mullins after the chip that drives it and it is made ​​by Sunnyvale. It operates with Windows 8.1, has 256GB SSD memory, camera, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities, HDMI, USB connector and DockPort. The computer uses a TV as display which makes the association with the set-top box even stronger.

Do you remember Google GLASS? Since its appearance, it has had no competition. This is about to change. The technology is not developed ​​by Microsoft or Apple, as we all might expect. The iOptik system includes special contact lenses and in combination with Innovega glasses, they provide several advantages over the original by Google.

On the one hand, the appearance of the iOptik system is socially more acceptable while, at the same time, it provides its user with more information. Unlike GLASS, it is able to open several separate windows with various applications that use the peripheral vision of the device user.

Currently iOptik supports up to five windows at a time. A curious feature of iOptik is that the use of contact lenses makes it impossible for someone else to see what you are doing at that moment with your "smart glasses". According to Innovega, the first products with iOptik will be available in 2015.
