The annual Consumer Electronics Show is now underway in Las Vegas – where tech companies show off their latest and greatest. Popular themes this year include drones, internet of things, and cars. And of course TVs. LG is showing OLED 4K TVs that are impossibly thin – 2.57 mm, yes, mm thin. While they are expensive, and there isn’t much 4K content yet, that is expected to change much faster than HD came to market.
It is easy to scoff at some of the individual items that show up at CES, and certainly some of them will never gain any traction, but the better focus is on trends and where we are headed. ZDNet, for example, sees IOT and wearable becoming useful, and AR and VR getting a purpose beyond gaming.
