LG and Swarovski create a Premium OLED TV

LG Swarovski OLED TV 2

LG Electronics, with design support from Swarovski, the renowned Austrian jewellery brand and world-leading manufacturer of high-quality crystals, will unveil a one-of-a-kind CURVED OLED TV at IFA Berlin. Featuring a streamlined stand studded with shimmering crystals complemented by the brilliant, precise colours of the OLED’s self-lighting pixels, this advanced TV exudes elegance beyond compare.
 
With a paper-thin depth of just 4mm and a weight of only 16kg, the LG CURVED OLED TV is the perfect showcase for Swarovski’s finest. Featuring LG’s stylish crystal stand, the ergonomically curved display appears to float on thin air, a breathtaking effect that helps to increase viewer immersion. To create this totally unique stand, approximately 460 luminescent Aurora Borealis crystals of three different sizes (SS8, 10 and 12) were applied by hand using specially made stencils. The result is a subtle but elegant sparkling pattern that turns a cutting-edge television into a work of art.
 
LG’s OLED TV offers unrivalled visual precision thanks to the company’s advanced pixel-dimming system and the inherent advantages of OLED technology. Viewers can see every pixel come alive and will enjoy the incredible realism of sharp, natural colours and infinite contrast ratio. A singular product that combines the best of technology with the best of design, the luxurious LG CURVED OLED TV with Swarovski crystals glitters and shines in more ways than one.
 
“We are excited to showcase this one-of-a kind TV — our first collaboration with designers from Swarovski — to visitors at IFA,” said Hyun-hwoi Ha, president and CEO of LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “The epitome of luxury and refinement, Swarovski crystals and LG’s premium OLED TV complement each other perfectly. The crystals help to create an aesthetic that is, quite simply, gorgeous, while our OLED technology ensures a level of picture quality that is every bit as stunning as one could imagine.”
 
The limited edition LG OLED TV will be on display at IFA 2014 in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10 and will roll out to European customers in the fourth quarter of this year.

Powercubes Unboxing

vlcsnap-2014-08-28-16h54m38s123Recently we received some rather fetching PowerCubes from Allocacoc, a reimagination of a four gang power adapter for home use. These PowerCubes come in all manner of different configurations to fit your needs and we have a look at two different sorts. Over the last week we have been putting these to use and finding them quite adaptable to their surroundings and much better looking then the traditional style. The wife doesn’t seem to mind having one of these stretched across the floor and the layout of the plugs themselves have proved to be entirely practical.
