While it's been specifically optimized for the company's own smartphones, it also supports most other third-party offerings running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and later versions of Google's mobile operating system.
LG has developed a 65-inch OLED screen that can be rolled up like a newspaper.
LG CTO Dr. IP Park opens the company's CES 2018 press conference.
A key characteristic for ThinQ is for the platform to evolve over time as the products become smarter as they learn the behaviors and usage patterns of the consumer.
Examples included robotic vacuums that cannot only distinguish between pets, people and furniture, but can be told to tend to cleaning automatically after residents leave home.
Once you approach your home, the auto can automatically open the garage and turn the lights on in the house by communicating with the other devices. I can't tell you any more about this model, though, as I've yet to see a demonstration model.
With Deep ThinQ, LG plans to take things even further. You can also use it to search food recipes and make video calls while you cook. For example, a robot vacuum cleaner will be able to navigate the user's home and detect if an object is a piece of furniture, or the family pet. Sure, exciting but also distant. Needless to say, this makes it one of the most portable screens we've ever seen.
LG's 2018 TVs have similar panels but radically different processing. Again, it claims to offer Dolby Atmos support for immersive cinema sound. And to that end, LG has just revealed a unique TV that pushes the boundaries in yet another way - it's so thin that it can be rolled up like a piece of paper.
The C8 and B8 models broadly resemble their 2017 counterparts, doing away with the pixels-on-glass elegance of the E8 and G8 models but still looking trim and cute in their super-slim OLED clothes. In addition to the rollable technology, LG will also be sharing more information about its OLED technologies with a 55-inch transparent display and a 77-inch wallpaper concept TV.
The Shopping Cart bot will include a barcode scanner and automated payment services to reduce time at the till.
