Ahead of The Curve

At the Consumer Electronics Show this year, the show-stealer is curved displays

The place to catch the technology trends for the year is the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held every year in Las Vegas in the first week of January. CES 2015 is the most important event in the calendar across the technology landscape, with over 3,000 companies displaying their latest and upcoming tech products. This year, CES could well be an acronym for “Curve Every Screen”, with the technology moving from televisions to desktop monitors. HP presented its new EliteDisplay curved monitors. The screen looks like it could wrap around an entire desk. It will have stiff competition from LG and Samsung.

At Las Vegas, LG unveiled the 34-inch UltraWide desktop monitor. It allows you to see details on screen that are amazing, and promises unrivaled color accuracy. Since you can stack two of them together, the company also thinks the UltraWide will help stock traders who are glued to market tickers all day long. It could also probably do amazing things for your spreadsheets at the office. Where LG is, Samsung can’t be far behind. They had launched the new all-in-one desktop computer with a curved screen even before CES started. The company says its curved display could provide a more immersive gaming and entertainment experience than conventional monitors. Most manufacturers know that PCs with curved screens will take a little getting used to but are banking on buyers who want to add style to their desks.
