The Rolly Keyboard includes two sturdy fold-out arms to mate it with smartphones or tablets.

Easy Roll-Up and Fast Storage

The secret to the Rolly Keyboard is that it folds up lengthwise along the four rows of keys to create an easy-to-carry "stick" that is convenient to carry in a purse, backpack or briefcase. The rollable wireless portable keyboard will be released in the U.S. this month.

LG's SmartThinQ Smart Appliance Sensors

Users can attach the new SmartThinQ Sensor to a number of low-tech home appliances to turn them into smart appliances that can provide users with more information. The SmartThinQ Sensor is a round, hockey puck-shaped device that can be attached to existing home appliances such as washing machines and refrigerators to sense feedback, including vibration and temperature, and send the readings to a SmartThinQ app on users' smartphones.

Making Old Appliances Smarter

The SmartThinQ Sensor can be attached, for example, to a normal washing machine door to alert the user when the laundry cycle is complete, or it can be attached to a refrigerator to send a notification to a connected smartphone when a particular food item is about to expire. The sensor will also keep track of how many times the refrigerator door is opened even when you're not home, along with a wide variety of additional uses. The sensors will be available in black, white and gold colors.
