This is a global stage for innovators and breakthrough technologies, a place for them to showcase the digital future and demonstrate new ideas and products that are pre launch or just about to come to market. Anyone with any interest or commercial venture involved in technology follows closely what’s going on there.

This is quite simply a thing of beauty, an ultra short throw projector with built in speakers.

It’s a lifestyle product with some seriously sleek technology. Check it out on this link here.

LG have launched a range of smart Kitchen appliances which are operational using the LG SmartThinq App. The App enables you to manage your LG Smart appliances from your mobile phone or tablet to provide convenience with minimum fuss. What’s more the technology is intelligent and will learn your regular habits and so therefore be able to anticipate your needs. It’s built on an open platform and so will work with evolving smart technologies and devices for the future. We’ll wait and see whether they decide to open up the API so we fully integrate these products into a smart home control system. Click for website
