Teach Kids Coding With Lego
You may already have heard of Mindstorm, a line of Lego products that teaches kids how to build and code basic robots and machines. At CES, Lego revealed a new, lower difficulty line for ages 7+ that they're calling Boost. Programming is handled by an app you can get on iOS and Android, a tilt sensor and an electric motor - the rest is up to your imagination! Lego demoed this with a slightly unnerving robot cat playing a harmonica, because of course they did.
QLED: The Future of TV?
In yesterday's coverage we noted that Samsung is expected to build its brand around a new range of QLED TVs (see yesterday's blog for more info on that). They've announced a range of flat and curved QLED TVs that boast some incredibly complex science, but the long and short of it promises that these TVs will offer brighter images and more vibrant colours no matter what angle you view from.
No, it's not a gadget from The Jetsons, it's real! LG's response to Samsung's QLED revolution is to announce a paper-thin TV that fits snugly to the wall like wallpaper! It's a headline grabber for sure, but how good is it? Watch the video above to find out.
