CES 2014: Video of smart mirrors, bending TVs and more

LAS VEGAS –┬áConsumer electronics companies are looking at every flat surface as a potential video display. Here’s a look at a few prototypes I saw at CES, plus the bendable OLED 4K TV prototype that Samsung displayed.


A Toshiba mirror for the bathroom says “good morning” when you approach in the morning, then displays alerts, weather and other information. A kitchen mirror can display recipes and be controlled with gestures.

Bendable TVs showed by Samsung are still prototypes. They’re mounted in a frame in which they can flex — or bow — if you’d prefer to watch a curved screen. In curved mode, the sides protrude a bit more than an inch.
