The CES 2014 ‘s popularity can be grasped from the fact that all flights to Las Vegas were delayed or diverted for hours. Everybody wanted to get their hands or rather their eyes on the latest of gadgets.
With 3D printers and amazing cameras and T.V’s, the geeks of our planet had landed there. All roads led to Vegas for this glorious period. One of the biggest attractions or what one might call, the biggest distraction from other numerous products, was- Curved Screens.
Curved Screens actually seemed to have given some ‘Techgasm’. The event had a curved screen at (ironically) every corner. They were being hailed by all manufactures ( Sony, Samsung, L.G) as the next big thing. And here is why:
- a) Curved Screens are going to give you the ultimate theatre exprience with their curved sides. Only make sure you buy a big enough screen so the effect is great no matter from which angle you view it.
- b) They are immersive. With giving you a rounded screen and you placed right at the centre, the screen literally wraps around and you are hooked.
- c) Want a flat T.V for a change? Simply press a button and its as flat as your old T.V. But you won’t be using this button often because of the curves having you hooked. The large size and the switch button option is being provided by L.G It has introduced a 105” Ultra HD that changes from curved to flat (for viewing web content). And what is an even better news is that curved smartphones are here too, which are going to be really user friendly, because of the sheer fact that you can hold them better in your palm and and enjoy viewing so much better than a on a flat boring screen. So let us let go off our flat HDTV’s and flat screen phones as something even more awesome than 3D TV’s has arrived!
