    Finally LG just got a global certification from UL Underwriters Laboratories who validated LG Electronics Premium Smart TV avanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions.

    “Being the first to receive UL certificate of validation for Smart TV features is confirmation of our innovation’s uniqueness and innovation,” said Do-joon Lee, Vice President and head of the UX Division in LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “We are committed to advancing the Smart TV experience to bring greater convenience to people’s lives.”

    The advanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions will be available starting in 2014 on LG Smart TV running the new operating system.

    This NEW OS might be the recently LG acquired to HP, the Palm webOS, that was announced by LG will have in the next generation Smart TVs.

    The finger gesture feature is also compatible with the built-in camera or LG’s plug-in camera accessory.

    Visitors to the LG booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas will have the opportunity to try out LG’s cutting-edge Smart TV technologies for themselves.

    A little later LG will also show off that Premum Smart TVs in the Apps World to take place in SF posted on forums: Ex Palm dev Gray Norton on webOS TVS

    I guess I'm a bit confused at what a UL certification means in this context. As far as I know, Underwriters Laboratory tests devices for safety and functionality doesn't really come into play. They would test that the device is tested for appropriate failure modes so they would not endanger people directly or indirectly.

    So, basically, having UL certification just means that the TV probably won't catch on fire or electrocute it's users. I can't even imagine how it being a smart or dumb device makes a difference (other than more connectors to test for UL compliance).

    they must have tested the ability to safely swipe without poking yourself in the eye. otherwise it'd need a safety label for average consumers.

    y'no im waiting for the irony to come full circle...

    ...i'm hoping these tvs use webOS so well that they become the most successful TVs ever sold, and users start saying "hey if only they made a phone like this" and we'll say "they did, four years ago!!"

    UL is a company who certifies standards. IMHO in the case of LG Premium Smart TV they are going beyond what we know at this time you can do on a Smart TV, any brand.

    Avanced speech and finger gesture recognition functions and The finger gesture feature that is also compatible with the built-in camera or LG’s plug-in camera accessory, all of them make an standard and UL certifies the quality working of that standard features., or UL upgrades the standard with LG innovations that are not yet available in other Smart TV brands.

    because i am sincerely hoping, that webOS will completely revolutionize the television industry. i want it to impress tv purchasers even more than it has impressed us phone users. i want a giant corporation to finally give it huge financial support, and really take the OS to its potential which was never realized with Palm or HP.

    imagine if there's actually solid hardware and thoroughly tested software, to avoid all of the mistakes that were allowed in the phone arena with the Pre's.

    i hope LG sells a freakin zillion webOS tvs and everyone finally learns how great webOS is.

    then i hope Leo and Meg get severe hemorrhoids so it hurts a lot when they each crap themselves over LG's success. (that's the meanest forum-safe thing i could think of)

    For to speculate A quote:

    LG and Samsung to unveil flexible TVs?

    Both LG and Samsung have been pegged to show off flexible OLED TV prototypes at CES, with one LG executive telling the Korea Times that the company's head of TV "will meet with clients and reporters ... and will promote something NEW " plus "unveil a remote bendable OLED TV that hasn't been seen before."

    It doesn't get much clearer than that.

    Samsung's flexible TV is said to have a "huge" display, and it too will have a remote that controls its bends.

    i dont understand the hype over flexible TV. i have never felt a need to bend my tv. i could see arcade games and digital media using it, not consumers though.

    LG smart tv's OS would have to be fluid and seamless with gestures and responses or it will fail. Yes hoping LG pulls it off. As a consumer company I think LG understands consumers needs (hopefully) esp tv owners. Fast boot up time (not too much longer than regular HD tv) and quick response.
    I am not certain if average tv consumer will download apps from LG to play on tv. If you look at Xbox, PS, Ruku, it seems like most apps are mainstream big name apps like hulu, netlix, pandora. The game consoles have indie games of course and big professional titles but not utilities or homebrew apps. I don't know if people would download simpler but useful homebrew apps on a tv (smart or not). But maybe this next generation of tvs will change some people's minds including my own.

    You beat me by 32 minutes lol.
    This excited me:
    At today's Seoul event, Hong also said LG is going to revive Palm / HP's Enyo development efforts. Enyo is an open-source JavaScript framework for cross-platform applications, and it appears that LG will ask third parties to develop applications using Enyo.
