The world’s first fully wireless OLED TV is completely off the hook

Wireless TVs aren’t a completely sci-fi idea – LG is showing a 97-inch wireless OLED at CES 2023, where it’s one of the more attention-grabbing items in the company’s crowded booth. But far off in a quiet, isolated corner of the Las Vegas Convention Center’s crowded Central Hall is something perhaps more intriguing: a fully wireless 55-inch 4K OLED TV.

Completely wireless as in no wires – not even a power cable (which LG’s wireless 97-inch OLED has). Displace TV has created a display that runs on four rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which gives you a month of six hours a day viewing before a recharge is required. The TV, wireless base station, batteries, and charger are priced at $3,000 for the lot, and you can buy four TVs from the company for $9,000. 

Why would you want four wireless Displace TVs? Because you can combine them together to create a 110-inch 8K TV. The sets have top mounted cameras that track hand movements, and by using a pinch-and-expand gesture, you can get an image being displayed on one of the screens to scale up and fill all four. (The Displace TV wireless base station, which streams to the displays via Wi-Fi 6E, has multiple video inputs to enable simultaneous viewing of different sources, and it also has a smart TV interface.)

Witnessing that pinch-and-expand function was sort of mind-blowing, but what was even cooler was getting to watch a TV being mounted to a wall. 

Displace TV’s proprietary active loop vacuum tech, which draws low-power from the batteries, is used to affix the set to a surface without any mounting hardware – you simply grab hold of latches on the panel’s sides, pull, and the vacuuum seal is released. You can then carry the lightweight TV (approximately 16 pounds) to another room, push to mount it securely on the wall, and resume viewing.

As impressed as I was with Displace TV in action, there are some downsides to the current version. When multiple TVs are grouped together there is a visible gap between panels. This is a far cry from the seamless images you get with 100-plus-inch MicroLED displays, which are also put together from multiple panels. The TVs also have a highly reflective screen surface – something that was easy to see on a trade show floor with bright overhead lights.

But considering the cutting-edge tech here, and the comparatively low price you’re paying for a 110-inch 8K OLED TV (LG’s 97-inch 4K OLED costs $25,000, and it uses wires), Displace TV’s offering is quite the deal.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
