Bend it like Samsung.
On the weekend before the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Korean electronics company Samsung demonstrated its bendable television prototype, which uses moving gears behind the TV panel to shift it from a flat screen position, to one that curves the sides towards the viewers.
The prototype lets users control the degree of the curve, and is for consumers who want to enjoy both viewing profiles.
Both Samsung and LG also showed off their first 105-inch curved ultra high definition (UHD) television. Available with a resolution of 5,120 x 2,160 and an aspect ratio of 21:9, the new displays are almost six times sharper than current full high definition screens.
