Bang & Olufsen's 85-inch 3-D TV sells for $85,000

Bang & Olufsen's new 3-D TV has an 85-inch screen and a $85,000 price tag. That comes out to about $1,000 per inch of display real estate for the high-end consumer electronics firm's BeoVision 4-85 plasma television, which Sound & Vision magazine described as an aspirational product. "The massive, anodized aluminum -encased set -- all 359.6 pounds of it -- rests on a similarly massive motorized stand (the whole package weighs just north of a half ton), which raises and lowers the screen from a floorbound rest position and conceals an integrated BeoSound 10 center-channel speaker, which emerges gracefully from beneath the screen as the motor lifts the set to viewing height," Sound & Vision's Michael Berk wrote of the new TV. "The actuators used have built-in sensors that automatically stop the stand from parking should they encounter an obstacle, preventing you from crushing an unwary guest's foot." To see any 3-D images on screen, 3-D glasses that sell for $149 are needed, Berk said. The picture displayed on plasma TVs tends to fade as the set ages, he said. But Bang & Olufsen has added what it calls an Automatic Colour Management system to offset the problem. The system includes a "tiny camera-bearing robotic arm, concealed above the center of the screen" that "emerges every 100 hours of use to calibrate the device. No user input is required (though you can run the routine as often as you like)," Berk said. The robotic calibration should allow the TV to attain a life of about 60,000 hours, he said.

Google to Control Your House With Android@Home

Today Android may live only on your tablet and smartphone and interact as mostly a standalone device, but Google has plans for its mobile operating system to take over your home. Android@Home was announced today at Google IO, which opens the door for what many imagined to be defining features of "the home of the future." Google will release open source libraries so that anyone can create an Android-compatible device that will allow Android to interface and control it. In a full Androidified home, that would mean using your smartphone or tablet to control the lights or the operation of the sprinklers outside. This functionality could also extend to music, where users of Google Music (Beta) will be able to stream the collection to any compatible device in the house.
