5 favorite LG innovations at CES 2022

LG uses CES 2022 to showcase products and concepts it has built to meet our existing lifestyle challenges. The company just held its event with the theme “The Better Life You Deserve.” You can check out what LG has in store yourself at this link

The company has a broad range of products, so we’re treated to innovations in various segments. We’re here to share some of the standout tech we’ve seen at the event and the weeks leading up to it!

LG tiiun

LG’s innovations for the home are always something we’re excited about. And the LG tiiun is definitely one of those. We’ve already featured this indoor gardening appliance. But we had to mention it again. The machine is a CES 2022 Innovation Award winner that smartly combines existing LG technology to help you grow your favorite flowers, herbs, and plants in the safety of your home. 

It reminds us a bit of a wine fridge, so we can easily just imagine it taking up space in our kitchens.

LG UltraGear 17G90Q

It might be surprising to think that LG hasn’t had a gaming laptop until now. The new UltraGear 17G90Q is the brand’s first entry into the space, combining a sleek and slim look with powerful specs. The UltraGear 17G90Q has top-of-the-line specs, including an 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake H processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card, dual-channel memory, and ultra-fast dual SSD. It has a 17-inch IPS display with a 1ms response time and a 300Hz refresh rate.

It still maintains a slim profile similar to LG’s gram laptops with a thickness of under 21.4mm and weight of less than 2.7kg, even with a 93Wh battery. The UltraGear 17G90Q has an aluminum casing featuring the winged UltraGear badge and a purple/gray color scheme.

LG StanbyMe

Yes, we know LG introduced its biggest 97-inch OLED TV at CES, and it has many great OLED televisions you can look forward to this year. But we couldn’t help but be attracted to this semi-portable, personal 27-inch TV with an amusing name. 

The LG StanbyMe is a 27-inch TV that is battery operated (up to three hours per charge) and can be moved around with its stand on wheels. That same stand is height-adjustable, so you can move it to the height you need. That screen is detachable from that stand if you somehow want to plop it on you. But then, that just sort of turns it into an oversized tablet.

The StanbyMe has a touchscreen interface and can access streaming apps like Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video. With NFC, it can mirror your smartphone, and you can rotate it vertically or horizontally, depending on what you’re watching. There is even a cradle on top of the screen to let you attach your smartphone and use it to make video calls. It seems like a device to fit into small apartments or college dorms, and we’re digging that idea.

LG PuriCare AeroTower

LG wants to take on Dyson with this three-in-one air purifier. The PuriCare AeroTower can purify, heat, and cool the air in your home with this tall, tapered device with a pincer-like form. It uses the Coanda effect to direct airflow, which Dyson Airwrap styler users should be familiar with, and its design seems to be how that airflow is created.

The PuriCare AeroTower is bladeless and promises 360-degree airflow with three modes: heating, fan, and diffusion (a.k.a. circulating purified air). 

It has a True HEPA filter to capture those small particles up to 0.3 microns, and it comes with UVC light tech to kill off bacteria that might get circulated in the air.

Living through this pandemic has made us more conscious of how clean our home air quality is, so it’s wise for LG to enter that space now. And it wants to make sure its appliance blends into your home somehow, with two interior design-friendly colors for the PuriCare AeroTower: silver and beige.

LG Omnipod

This last innovation is the epitome of a concept, given we don’t really have fully autonomous self-driving cars now. But based on LG’s CES event, the company is at least thinking about what mobility will look like if and when we get that. 

The idea behind the LG Omnipod is all about what you can do inside cars (like this spacious, mini-bus-like vehicle shown at the event) while you’re not driving. The company envisions turning car cabins into an extension of your living space where you can work, watch TV, exercise, and more while you try to get from one place to another. You can even think of it as a high-tech camper for when you go outdoors. 

We always enjoy seeing the out-of-this-world concepts at CES, and the Omnipod is LG’s contribution in that space this year.
