Get your credit cards ready and expect this TV to cost a fortune.
In the future, everything will be a digital display — even your fingernails.
We're drooling all over the paper-thin flexible OLED display Sharp is showing off at CES 2013.
One of the coolest features of OLED displays, is how they can be made so thin that they become surprisingly flexible. This watch concept plays that trick to the extreme, by including a video display that wraps around your wrist to tell the time.
Headphones are hot, and it seems like every fashion hipster wants to be seen with some Beats by Dre or other blingy headphones on their head. The problem is that unless you have the volume really cranked, it can be hard for others to tell what tunes you're spinning.

Remember that transparent OLED TV from CES 2012? Well, here's another application of that technology: as a multi-functional sunroof for a car. Better yet, it's one you'd never have to open or close, because it's way smarter than that.
CES starts next week, and already the hype machine has been turned to 11. Earlier this week, LG proudly announced it be showing off at its booth "the future of TV technology," "the world's largest OLED HDTV" at CES. Uh-huh. And Karolina Kurkova has promised me a date.
Art Lebedev's Optimus Maximus keyboard is pretty slick, but c'mon, let's be real: blowing over $2,000 on a keyboard is hard to justify. The little brother of the Maximus, the Popularis, is now up for pre-order, and it's just as good looking but way more affordable.
Holy tacos, it's real, it's really real. Remember Sony's prototype for a pair of OLED 3D virtual reality goggles from back at CES? Well, it's a prototype no more, because Sony actually plans to sell it in Japan later this year, and it'll cost a pretty penny.
The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo has a shiny new toy on display: an OLED "geo-cosmos" display that takes the shape of a six-meter sphere suspended from the ceiling.
