—Ikea, most notably known for their space saving and cost-effective furniture has officially kicked off the battle of the smart television with their Uppleva TV.
Uppleva–meaning "Experience" in Swedish–is a forward thinking TV hub that hopes to answer to all of your home theatre needs. Running with that idea, the Scandinavian brand took the all-in-one TV stand to an entirely new level. Not only will the furniture come with an embedded blu-ray/dvd/cd player, surround sound, and built-in USB/HDMI ports, it will also come equipped with an HD LED television that is wi-fi enabled, and offers the ability to browse the Internet via its pre-installed Opera browser.
With TV sizes ranging from 24"-46", you can expect more details to be announced as we near its expected fall release date.
Google has unveiled an operating system designed specifically for Android Wear, the new wave in smartwatches that will revolutionize your daily life. (I said it.) But aside from its functions, maybe most importantly, the watch isn’t ugly.
Let’s be real. Even though companies boast that their electronics are waterproof, no one would ever actually test the theory in case they bought the lemon that was defective. Sony takes care of that for us.
