Here goes the TV of the future!

A A A

Unveiled for the first time at the recently-concluded 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, this futuristic display from LG absolutely gained a lot of well-deserved attention.

As our headline suggests, this amazing screen is fully flexible and can be rolled up and scrunched around. It measures 18 inches from corner to corner but LG said this impressive tech is just a taste of things to come. They’re hoping to create displays that are 55 inches and beyond in the future which will be able to deliver a screen quality of 4K. That’s about 4 times the power of your HD TV.

Presently though, LG’s bendable TV screen only has a resolution of 1,200 x 810 pixels.

At CES 2016, LG showcased the prototype of their foldable TV display.

I can see this one would be attractive not only for those interested with the latest TV technology but also for individuals and families who want to save on space. Just imagine the convenience of not having to dedicate an entire corner for your television! Also, it would be easy to bring this from place to place.

No details have been given regarding the display’s price or when it will hit the market. It would be a safe guess, however, that this would be pretty costly.

“The larger prototype is expected in the near future. But as for a commercial product, we’re still planning the timing,” said KJ Kim, LG Display’s vice president of marketing.

We are living in exciting times.

We Now Have An Obsolete Periodic Table of Elements, Ladies and Gents

Science textbooks are now obsolete thanks to the new addition of four super-heavy-man-made chemical elements. You can stop scratching your head now.

Just when you thought you were already done with chemistry, news comes out that four new elements, super-heavy-man-made chemical elements (thank you very much) have just been added to the periodic table. The elements are currently tagged as 113, 115, 117, and 118 and have yet to be named.

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) verified the said elements last week and have added them to the periodic table, thus officially completing the seventh row. These super-heavy-man-made chemical elements have been the newest inclusions to the table since 2011 according to an official from IUPAC.

Inspired By Felix Baumgartner’s Epic Freefall, This Artist Designed An Awesome Space Re-Entry Suit

Although the suit looks straight from a sci-fi flick, you have to admit it looks very functional.

Felix Baumgartner set an astounding world record around four years ago.

In October 2012, the Austrian skydiver and daredevil was involved in the Red Bull Stratos project where he jumped back to earth from a helium balloon. As Wikipedia tells us, his amazing achievement made him the record holder for “maximum vertical speed without drogue, highest exit altitude for a parachutist, and greatest vertical distance of freefall.”

It was truly an impressive feat because his epic jump was at about 127,000 feet.
