The Gadget Show Live 2011

April 13th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

The wait is finally over. The Gadget Show Live officially kicks off today with enough new technology, gadgets and robots (a personal fave) to entertain event the most cynical technophile.

One of the first stands you see upon entering the show is our LG stand, replete with our latest Home Entertainment solutions for 2011, our hero range of Cinema 3D TVs and of course our new Smart TV solutions.

Lots of people were impressed by the absence of flicker on our 3D Cinema sets, which are the first to be certified flicker free by Intertek and TUV – two of the most respected inspection and certification bodies in the world. A lot of people also took this opportunity to test the improved viewing angles on the Cinema 3D sets as they wandered around the stand trying wider and wider viewing angles.

Smart TV is also a key product for this year and is naturally on display at the Gadget Show Live. Being demonstrated on the PZ950T Plasma TV, Smart TV provides access to a wide range of apps, a web browser and access to premium content including BBC iPlayer, Google Maps and Acetrax and Viewster movie streaming services. This was demonstrated with the Magic Motion Remote that visitors were keen to try out.

For those not in the market for a new TV, but still keen on getting the Smart TV experience is the ST600 Smart TV upgrader that is also on display at the Gadget Show Live. Offering any TV with an HDMI port access to all of our Smart TV content for a snip at just £100.

Still wowing the crowds is our EL9500 15” OLED TV. At just 2.9mms in depth, the OLED is blessed with glorious picture quality – yet is one that people can’t help but stare at from the side. Though it is thinner than a pound coin so it’s understandable!

If you’re looking for an interactive experience then you are in luck as the LG stand is kitted out with an F1 Racing Simulator developed by industry leaders rFactor. You get to sit in our LG Formula 1 car and race a lap in 3D powered by three D3242P 3D monitors. If this wasn’t incentive enough, whoever has fastest time at the end of the show will walk away with a full 3D cinema Package.

Naturally I didn’t spend all my time on the LG stand and stretched my legs to go on my usual hunt for robots and other tech gems. In this hunt I found many a cool thing including Robot Wars…

Multi-player racing gaming…

An original Batmobile from the 1960’s…

Some awesome DJing on the Sennheiser stand…

On my way for a spot of lunch I was confronted by the most wonderful thing my eyes may have ever seen. Brasso’s Gadget Gran showing the cleaning powers of Brasso by giving a mean looking robot a bit of a polish!

If you’re heading along to The Gadget Show this week, come by our Cinema 3D lounge, settle in on comfy sofa set-up, open a bag of LG popcorn, pop on a pair of our lightweight polarized 3D glasses and see for yourself why LG is Sky’s first choice for 3D television. We’re at stand C1. See you there.
