LG is sporting its goods this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The technology giant has a huge line-up of products it plans to showcase, including its new Ultra HD TV’s and an impressive array of home appliances and Smart Hom-Bot vacuum system.
Among the gadgets are a few of LG’s newest, biggest and most powerful top-load and front load washer and dryer pairs.
The company is unveiling massive 29-inch sets with 5.2 cubic metres of space inside the washer and a whopping seven cubic metres in the dryer, making washing king duvets or mounds of laundry feasible while also being environmentally concious, says the company.
LG’s laundry machines are designed to save water and energy, by incorporating steam cleaning and shorter wash cycles with combination rinse and spin cycles. Dryers use “heat pump” technology that reduces energy use by recycling heat generated during the drying process.
Of course, nothing would be complete without an app to connect the device with its users’ Smartphone. All of LG’s new ultra capacity washer and dryer sets have integrated Near Field Technology.
“This wireless technology allows users to download specialized washing cycles to their smartphones to be uploaded to the appliances with a single tap of the phone to the washer,” says the company.
Marketed as a product to help save consumers’ time and make life more convenient, the Hom-Bot Smart vacuum system is also being featured at the show.
The robotic vacuum is controlled via Smartphone and utilizes dual lenses that snap images of the users’ home to map out the most effective cleaning path. It can also spot objects within a 180-degree radius to stop itself from running into furniture around the room.
“The Smart Hom-Bot Square also features a Learning Function which enables it to recognize areas it has cleaned previously. This helps it to remember the positioning of objects and to sense when an area is already clean, minimizing cleaning time and energy,” says LG.
It’s quiet, comes equipped with a HEPA filter to help clean air in the home, and has a larger container for collecting debris, meaning the vacuum doesn’t have to be emptied as often, adds LG in a press release.
Finally, a consumer electronics expo wouldn’t be the same without several companies vying to show off the latest and greatest televisions. LG is no exception.
This year consumers will get the chance to see the company’s largest curved-screen ultra TV, measuring at 105-inches from corner to corner. LG says its new line of TVs, which also come in 65-, 79-, 84- and 98-inch units, feature the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio viewing experience.
With a super sharp picture, the TV also has “a sophisticated upscaling function that takes SD, HD or Full HD content and renders it in sharp, near Ultra HD quality.”
“The new models also feature LG’s unique Ultra HD Cinema 3D, which uses Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology to render convincing 3D images with virtually no flicker or cross-talk,” says LG.
All of these products and more can be viewed all week long at CES 2014 or here on LG’s website.
