—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.
Move aside Nike Fuelband, Jawbone Up or whatever fitness tracking device that tells me how many calories I’ve burned. How about telling me how many calories I’ve consumed? That’s where Vessyl, a new device that can tell you exactly what you’re drinking, steps in.
Look, North America needs to get with the f’in program and make it safer for cyclists on the road. But the fact is that biking has picked up as much clout here as say, driving a Ferrari. Maybe this Smart Bike Concept by Samsung will change the tune.
