The biggest screen I’ve ever had in my house measured 96″ diagonal and used a front projector and a traditional movie screen. The room had to be totally dark to really enjoy it, but it was cool having a screen that big.
Last week we showed you LG’s latest TV that rolls up like a poster and now we have some video to share of the company giving a demo. At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, LG showed off their 65-inch rollable OLED television, and folks were appropriately wowwed.
Smartphones are reaching their limits as far as acceptable size, but TVs keep pushing the boundaries. Display resolutions get higher, the sizes of our sets get bigger and they get sharper and thinner. There’s no end in site.

Back when I was a kid, a 27-inch TV was considered HUGE. Boy, have things changed. These days, anything less than 55 inches is considered a “small” TV screen. I’ve got a 70-inch display in my living room now, and that’s big enough for me, but for some people bigger is always better.
So you bought yourself a fancy flatscreen TV so you can enjoy movies, sports and games on the big screen. But you plug it in and are quickly disappointed that the tiny little speakers they crammed in there do nothing to complement the awesome picture.
If you’ve been thinking about upgrading to a 4K HDR display, there’s no better time than the present – especially now that Vizio has launched their new 2017 models. I’ve been a big fan of Vizio’s displays for years, and I have the first-generation P-Series 4K display in my living room.
Back in January we talked a bit about the Smart Remote by SevenHugs. It sounded pretty cool, even if our man Lambert would prefer an app. I wouldn’t. I don’t want to futz with my phone while watching TV.
Think your man cave is cool? Check out Marc and Jennifer Bell’s Star Trek themed home theater and bar. It was a labor of love that took four years and $1.5-million to complete, and puts other home theaters to shame.
Less than a day before E3 2016 Microsoft’s press conference, an image of the Xbox One Slim (aka Xbox One S) showed up on NeoGAF, and now it’s officially been confirmed. It definitely looks like it will be worth buying.
Last month we checked out Dr. Moddnstine’s modern PC in a ’90s tower. It turns out that he found a 1978 General Electric CRT TV in the same heap as the tower, and he couldn’t let that go to waste either.
VIZIO today rolled out the 2016 upgrade to its already awesome P-Series 4K displays, adding features heretofore reserved for their most expensive Reference Displays. For starters, the new VIZIO SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display (that’s a mouthful) now includes support for High Dynamic Range and Dolby Vision encoded content.
Imgur member cpostier’s house has a Nutone 2090, a 1960s to 1970s home intercom system that doubles as a multi-room AM/FM radio. Cpostier wasn’t interested in its primary function, but he wanted to update the system’s audio capabilities.
For better or for worse, our appliances are getting smarter. But like their simpler ancestors, they usually come with their own remote controls, be they physical controllers or apps. French startup Sevenhugs thinks it has the answer with SmartRemote, a touchscreen universal remote control for connected devices.
