Wondering what companies have to offer us in 2014? It’s bendable TVs with 4K.
On CES 2014, almost all the television manufactures have announced a big 4K televisions and there are also offerings of bendable TVs, yes one with flexible glass.
Though these two technologies are buzz right now. They do not seem to last long like 3D which was a big buzz till couple years back. Why?
TVs at our homes are for a single person. Multiple people from family watch TV most of the time. And that’s where bendable TV fails because if one watching the curve TV is not in the exact center, it will NOT look good. That’s what everyone is already saying after demos.
On the other hand, even though 4K sounds great, we can hardly see any difference with a small display size. Yes, for 4K even 70 inch is not big enough. On such small size, viewers are requested to get really close to the TV to experience 4K, but in real we don’t watch TV sitting extremely close. Do we?
To conclude, all these companies want you to spend money on their products and to do that they had to come up with something and create a buzz, either it’s something amazing or useless.
Seems like we have to wait couple more years before we start replacing our TVs.
Here’s a video of a technology that’s useless for now:
