The new large LG OLED TV can be rolled back into its relatively small triangular box when not in use. This TV has a modular design since it's made up of smaller borderless displays, all of which are interchangeable. This uses a new technology branded Micro LED, which uses individually lit LED pixels, without the need for backlighting. Unlike most such prototypes, The Wall is actually expected to go on sale sometime in 2018.

Samsung won the sheer size game with its 146-inch Wall, a TV capable of reaching such massive scale thanks to its use to MicroLED technology instead of LCD or OLED.

Yes, 8K was on display at CES. More importantly, there's no consumer content available in 8K yet, and major studios and publishers are still trying to get 4K into peoples' hands. Neither company shared local pricing for any of the models on display.

Of course, detail levels looked outstanding too, but the bright picture and vibrant colour palette were by far the standout features here, all powered by Sony's next-generation X1 Ultimate processor. But there is a difference between the two strategies.

On finding their escape route blocked they tried to transfer the loot through a window to two accomplices waiting outside. The suspects were wearing gloves and balaclavas and carrying handguns as well as hatchets, according to police sources.

They're all part of LG's ThinQ concept, too - which at this stage means the ability to learn your watching habits and (for the USA and Korea to begin with) direct Google Assistant interactivity.

It's that time of the year: This week is the Consumer Electronics Show, the biggest tech expo in the U.S. nearly two hundred thousand people have descended on a surprisingly rainy Las Vegas for the show, among them Geared Up co-host Andru Edwards.
