Only a few years ago, outside of sprawling factories, robots were the realm of science fiction. Today, automatons are making their way into our daily lives, in no short part due to social distancing requirements, as robots don’t need to breathe. It may not be far off in the future when robot-led services become essential to keeping the world moving while human overlords remain at a safe distance!

At CES 2021, LG’s CLOi family of robots led by GuideBot, ServeBot, ChefBot and UV-C Robot demonstrated capabilities that go beyond welding car sheet metal and playing chess. These high-tech robots are intended to be deployed in public spaces such as restaurants, hospitals and office buildings to assistant humans without requiring human-to-human interaction.

LG CLOi ServeBot

LG CLOi ServeBot comes in two helpful variants – drawer and shelf – to deliver goods inside hotels, hospitals and restaurants. Whether it’s transporting medicine and drugs from one hospital floor to another or navigating tables at a posh Italian restaurant with plates of pasta, this smart robot can take multiple instructions at once to deliver stuff in the correct order following the most efficient route possible.

LG CLOi ServeBots are hard at work in a convenience store located on the LG Sciencepark research campus to deliver snacks and beverages to employees in nearby offices, even on different floors accessible only by elevators. Items being delivered are kept secure under lock and key which can only be unlocked once the robot reaches its destination.

LG CLOi ChefBot and GuideBot

LG CLOi ChefBot is a six-axis multi joint robot that can prepare delicious noodle-based dishes for customers at restaurants with machine-like consistency.

LG CLOi GuideBot was designed as an approachable information desk for destinations such as airports, shopping malls and exhibition halls. The helpful guide boasts an expansive touchscreen that houses a variety of information to help people get where they’re going easily.

LG CLOi UV-C Robot

Through its human motion sensor, this robot can be operated via mobile app to minimize human operators’ exposure to ultraviolet light. LG’s UV robot will make its way first in the U.S. later this year.

LG CLOi BaristaBot

LG CLOi BaristaBot is offering its future-inspired expertise at select cafes in Seoul, South Korea to lend a helping hand during a time of prolonged social distancing. Designed with the ability to consistently deliver a delicious serving of coffee, this supercharged barista utilizes its vast database of type of beans, water temperature and brewing time to create a perfect cup every time.

      Hey, I have a LG OLED65CX TV (latest WebOS) and  some photos from my Synology NAS are not loading, only in thumbnails like this:
       
      Most photos work perfectly but some not. They are scans from a photobook and then individually cut in Zoner but that shouldn't matter right? Here are properties of one of the photos

      I really don't know the reason my TV and it makes me really mad since it took a long time co scan these.
      Weird thing is I also scanned other positive film photos and they work great on TV.
      Do you know what might be the problem?

      Most everyone agrees that technology and innovation have made our lives immensely easier and more productive. Two decades ago, working and studying from home was an entirely different experience without broadband, smartphones or Zoom. But there has been a need to make such technological innovation more accessible to everyone.
      As part of the company’s new ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) initiatives covering human rights, LG is committing to making its home appliances more accessible to the physically challenged. The new vertical laundry solution, WashTower, will be the first appliance from LG to include audio instructions and braille overlays. LG will increase the number of more accessible home appliance products and markets over the course of the year, starting with the enhanced WashTower and CordZero M9 robot vacuum cleaner.

      Voice instructions in LG WashTower and CordZero M9 vacuum will make it easier for customers with visual impairment to access the appliance’s many advanced features via audio prompts alone. Additional tones will be implemented throughout the washing machine so there is clear feedback whenever a button is pressed to better guide the user in selecting the correct function and options.

      Navigating LG WashTower’s Center Control for visually impaired customers will be infinitely more convenient with the use of braille overlays. Accessibility enhancements for more LG products including robot vacuums, washing machines, vacuum cleaners, refrigerators and air conditioners are in the works.
      With a greater commitment toward good ESG management, LG is putting in place the necessary components to help ensure a better society for all and a better life for every customer. This effort has not gone unnoticed by LG’s long-time accessibility partner in the United States, the National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM), who is also a member of the LG Accessibility Advisory Council.

      “LG’s U.S. accessibility council activities are particularly noteworthy; global teams from LG come together to host nearly a dozen leading U.S. accessibility experts and disability advocacy organization leaders,” said Donna Danielewski of NCAM. “They provide candid and critical input and feedback on LG’s latest hardware, software, and planned activities – while also receiving updates about LG’s progress along its accessibility journey. Our team in NCAM is always grateful for the opportunity to learn from the council participants (as well as representatives from all levels of LG) while also bringing our own expertise to the table.”

      I have a new LG OLEDGX65 TV with a Sonos EARC sound bar but having a problem with connecting a Bernafon hearing aid adapter which requires a optical or RCA output. (
      link hidden, please login to view The problem is the optical & analogue outputs are not available when a Sound bar is connected via the HDMI ARC input.  Its possible to connect sound bar using optical but then you loose the control of the sound bar volume(HDMI CEC). Yes you can use the separate APP but that's not a really a viable solution.
      So does anybody know of an adapter that can be put on the the HDMI aARC connection to extract the Audio for the hearing aid adapter ?
      The ARC sound would also need and be seen by the Sound bar.

      This is first installment of ‘On the Job’, where we put the spotlight on some of the talented and creative individuals in the global LG family. Today we take a look at the important role played by the company’s innovative digital designers.
      As any creator or inventor will agree, taking an idea and turning it into something real is no small feat. When it comes to creating a new product, it is the role of the digital designer to translate the concepts, sketches and plans generated during the design process into a three-dimensional representation of what the finished article might look like. Giving virtual or physical form to something that does not yet exist can be just as challenging as it sounds and it’s the job of LG’s digital design professionals to turn imagination into reality.

      While pen and paper will always have their place in design, digital designers normally utilize more advanced tools such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and 3D printers to give shape to projects. VR makes it possible to realistically simulate how a product will actually look and feel, offering valuable insights that looking at a drawing or inspecting a 3D-model on a computer screen simply cannot deliver. LG’s designers even create virtual environments based on real living spaces so that prior to a design being finalized, they can accurately assess the product’s ability to spatially and aesthetically harmonize with a range of different interior styles and configurations.

      The selecting of colors, materials and finishes is a crucial part of the design process and can mean the difference between how a product is perceived and received by consumers. Digital designers provide valuable support in this area as well. The work of LG’s digital designers were instrumental in getting the green light to make a reality.

      The arrival of 3D printing has made the essential step of transforming a product’s design into a tangible model considerably easier for digital design pros. The ability to create three-dimensional drafts of products which can be touched as well as viewed helps LG’s designers identify areas that need further consideration faster than ever before. 3D printing not only reduces the need to rework designs, it also shortens the overall product development time, allowing LG to bring products to consumers faster.

      As LG digital designer Lim Hwi-tae explains it, “The role of a digital designer is to create something out of nothing, to take an image or a world that exists only in the imagination and bring it to life using technologies such as VR and 3D printing.
      “Our biggest goal as digital design practitioners is to shorten the amount of time it takes to bring new and improved products to market,” said Ryu Byoung-gi, another dedicated digital designer at LG. “The detailed digital visualizations we produce during the product development phase help to make that happen, and that’s something we’re all very proud of.”
      By turning the imaginary into reality in less time, LG’s digital designers continue to make significant contributions to the realization of the company’s global, consumer-centric mission – to create innovation for a better life.

      As of a few days ago, my OLED65B7A started showing strange pixelation on the WebOS UI. My Directv that is plugged into the HDMI port shows just fine but using the WebOS UI to scroll through apps or look at the settings, or even inside apps like Netflix or Prime, etc., the strange pixelation occurs (once a Netflix/Prime show starts, it's fine). It's as if the front interface layer or something is broken but not the main viewing screen/area?
      Does anyone know what is going on? I've reset the TV to initial settings and ran the Pixel Refresher.
      Pictures attached.
