Some of the Most Exciting Announcements from CES 2017 So Far

It is virtually impossible to follow everything that goes on during CES. Not being there physically makes it even harder. I usually just wait for a few articles and videos from people attending and see what’s going on. Never too closely interested unless something big happens.

This year, even deep in my cocoon, some CES news has reached me. Here are some of the most exciting this I’ve heard of, read or watched from CES 2017:

LG Ultra thin Wallpaper TV:

LG have announced a new TV, W7 OLED, that’s so thin, it is like a wallpaper on your wall. Like for real. It can’t even stand on it’s own. It is as thin as a coin, thinner than some coins. You have to have it on the wall. Read more here.

Samsung and Google partner for Chromebook Pro and Plus:
