No matter the year, there is always something new and exciting to look forward to in the world of electronics. Technology is constantly changing, evolving to better fit our lifestyles and make work and play easier. This is not different for 2012, as new electronics are now on the horizon, tantalizing our senses and exposing use to new and fresh ideas. For starters, televisions are receiving a facelift. Yes, they are thinner and brighter than ever, but there are a few new bits of technology going into several displays that even the most avid electronics enthusiast is sure to love.
First off, televisions known as 4K are hitting the market. These televisions produce around four times the resolution of current 1080 HD televisions. Of course, in order to see the improved picture quality one must have an incredibly large television (50 plus inches), but the image upgrade is impressive. The only current downside is the lack of immediate content for the 4K TV (there isn’t any, at this point). Another exciting electronic product emerging this year is the see-through television. That’s right. See through. The televisions are placed on a windowpane, and when the television is off, you see directly through the television, onto the street or garden outside the window. The entire set is touch screen based, allowing you to control the TV with your fingers. In addition, the television works as blinds and shades also. Simply drag your finger from top to bottom on the television and a black, digital shade closes off the screen and blacks out the window.
Mobile Phone Technology
Remember a time where everyone wanted the latest, smallest mobile phone? Well those days are long gone, and portable phones are now becoming larger. Cell phone makers are trying to pack a larger, HD viewing screen on mobile devices, making it easier to multi-task, play video games and watch movies. Of course, this is up to you if you want a four to five inch phone in your pocket (at this point, your arriving close to the size of smaller table computers). This technology might not work for some, while others might love the new electronics.
