One of the biggest words going around this year at CES is “transparent” thanks to Samsung and LG unveiling their transparent TV’s. LG’s OLED T (T for transparent) is a 77 inch TV that displays images over a transparent OLED screen. The TV comes packed with “Always Ready” media made specifically for the clear backdrop, this includes a fish tank effect, leaves in the wind and live music performances. This combined with its Case/stand, if you can call it that, makes it clear LG sees this to be more than a TV but also ambiance machine for the room. For a more standard TV viewing experience a shade of black rolls out from under the TV to up the contrast levels.
Samsungs TV on the other hand is more of a future vision than it is something that’s attainable for consumers. Samsung transparent tv comes in the form of modular transparent microLED displays. These were displayed in various form factors at CES showcasing how they can be custom fit to the buyers liking.
Supernal S-A2 EVTOL

The claim is that it can take people distances of 25-40 miles at max speeds of 120 mph up to 1,500 feet above the ground. The amazing Sc-Fi looking design for this was inspired using biomimicry, basing things of the shape of bees, an amazing example of using what nature has already done to propel us into the future. The other amazing thing about this vehicle is the fact it’s going to be incredibly quiet, clocking 65dB at take off and landing which is quieter than a dishwasher.
