Samsung MicroLED Opens a New Era of Breathtaking Picture Quality and Design

The next generation of television display technology is ready for the home out of the box with the unveil of Samsung’s 110’’ MicroLED in Korea

Samsung Electronics announced the launch and pre-sale of the groundbreaking 110” Samsung MicroLED beginning today in Korea. Unlike any other displays currently available on the market, Samsung MicroLED delivers astonishing color vibrancy and brightness with self-emissive LED display technology.

In 2018, Samsung’s first MicroLED display was introduced in the form of “The Wall”— a system of configurable modules that could be installed professionally. With the new 110” MicroLED, Samsung is delivering the MicroLED experience in a traditional TV form for the first time. Unlike its modular counterpart, installation and calibration is streamlined since the new 110” MicroLED model is prefabricated — offering stunning video, audio, and smart capabilities out of the box.

In the past year, consumer interest and demand for large screen TVs has continued to grow rapidly. With the launch of the 110’’ MicroLED, Samsung offers a breathtaking visual experience on an ultra-large next-generation TV display.

“As consumers rely on their televisions for more functions than ever, we are incredibly excited to bring the 110” MicroLED to the commercial market,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung MicroLED is going to redefine what premium at-home experiences mean for consumers around the world.

Innovative Engineering Delivers Next-Level Picture Quality

Ultra-large screen enthusiasts want excellent picture quality with vibrant colors and stunning resolution. With Samsung’s latest engineering innovations, the 110’’ MicroLED uses micrometer-sized LED lights to eliminate the backlight and color filters utilized in conventional displays. Instead, it is self-illuminating—producing light and color from its own pixel structures. It expresses 100% of the DCI and Adobe RGB color gamut, and accurately delivers wide color gamut images taken with high-end DSLR cameras. This results in stunning, lifelike colors and accurate brightness from the display’s 4K resolution and 8 million pixels.

The 110’’ MicroLED also has a processor powerful enough to live up to its display capabilities. Its all-new Micro AI Processor delivers stunning 4K HDR content — resulting in bright, vivid, realistic picture quality that is optimized to each scene.

What’s more, the 110” MicroLED makes that stunning picture quality last for the long term. MicroLEDs are made of inorganic materials which are long-lasting and durable — allowing a lifespan of up to 100,000 hours, or over a decade.

Previously, mass-producing a MicroLED screen as small as 110’’ for simple home installation wasn’t possible. But Samsung innovated to make it a reality by developing cutting-edge surface mount technology — along with a new production process derived from its semiconductor business — making MicroLED technology easier to manufacture, deliver, and install. These same innovations will allow Samsung to produce even smaller MicroLED models in the future, so even more consumers can enjoy the breathtaking MicroLED experience.

Immersive Design and Premium Audio

When you turn on the 110’’ MicroLED, you are treated to a spectacularly immersive experience thanks to its 99.99% screen-to-body ratio. The black matrix and bezel have been completely removed from the display — leaving only the screen, delivering consumers the most immersive content experience.

Samsung has innovated and optimized its Smart TV features to take advantage of the 110” MicroLED’s massive screen. For example, consumers can use the Multi View feature to comfortably watch up to four sources of content simultaneously on up to 55’’ sized split screens. When using this feature, the viewers can connect multiple external devices and enjoy watching news, movies, and other apps simultaneously on one screen — so they can keep up with multiple sports at once, or stream a walkthrough while playing a video game, all in stunning quality and size.

Plus, the 110’’ MicroLED’s dynamic audio experience is just as immersive as its visuals. It includes an embedded Majestic Sound System that delivers breathtaking 5.1 channel sound with no external speaker—transforming any room into a luxurious home theater. And its Object Tracking Sound Pro feature identifies objects moving on screen, and projects the sound to follow the action — so when you are watching an action movie and an airplane flies overhead, it will feel like its engines are roaring above you.

The 110’’ MicroLED will be available globally in the first quarter of next year following today’s unveiling in Korea. For more information about the 110’’ MicroLED, please visit: www.samsung.com.

Smart bathroom technology

The bathroom is a very important room in the house that must always be in good condition and with impeccable hygiene, that is, it must be a place of comfort and well-being. Lately, to achieve all this, the trend to equip intelligence restrooms is growing. But what does this mean? A smart bathroom often has services controlled by a device and the number one product to satisfy this preference is SensoWash® . 

Whether it’s SensoWash Slim or E – , there’s nothing more hygienic, more natural and refreshing than cleaning with water. SensoWash® represents a new program of washing seats that meets current demands for hygienic cleaning, great control comfort, good design and individuality

Smart Bathrooms – Smart bathroom technology by DURAVIT

Currently there are homes that already enjoy this type of technology that makes their bathrooms more functional as well as being decorated to the last detail, always using technological accessories to give it a unique and modern style. For example, the new Duravit mirrors   with three different light profiles: an indirect (ambient) light on all four sides, a light strip on the upper edge of the mirror or two side stripes, which provide optimal lighting.

Thanks to the modern LED technique in indirect (ambient) lighting, a blurred light effect is created on the wall. For this purpose, 4 light sources have been placed at the rear that provide uniform lighting on the wall around the mirror. Also in models with light strips, LEDs are used, creating a frameless light source. All models are available in three different versions corresponding to mirror furniture. The comfort version of the mirror element is also available with heating, which prevents fogging.

Step by step, technology continues to play a greater role in the healthcare industry, in designing products to make the bathroom more comfortable and safe. When it comes to high-tech materials like  DuraCeram® , a new raw material to create finer shapes, with greater resistance and stylish accents in bathroom design. Other material,  DuraSolid ®It is made up primarily of natural minerals, resin as a binder, and color pigments. In this way, a bathtub body without joints and visible joints is created, which due to its material structure has a matt surface and a satin finish, providing an extremely warm and soft appearance. As an exclusive option, the discreet air hydromassage system and / or the integrated sound system that is controlled by a Bluetooth compatible device can be integrated. Another sculptural design with space for two people,  Paiova 5 ,  an exceptional bathtub because it guarantees a comfortable and pleasant experience that is equipped with the new Combi – L hydromassage system.  makes it very luxurious. The nice, flat jets move the massage jet vertically up and down along the back muscles. In addition, the entrance to the bathtub is slightly reduced to a total height of 580 mm instead of the usual 600 mm. The narrow edge of the bathtub lends itself to hold on. At the rear, towards the wall, a wide edge offers a surface for depositing bathroom utensils. And continuing with the evolution of the bathroom, we would highlight the new “ c-bonded” solution ,  a new technique that seamlessly fuses  ceramic and furniture in a single unit. The thickness of the sink material becomes invisible and is reduced to a precise edge that produces a unique visual as well as hygienic sensation.

In the selection of faucets, the new C.1 design line  perfectly reflects the Duravit design language. The ergonomically shaped lever with a slit at the bottom provides a comfortable feel and precise handling. The studied details, such as a minimized joint between the base body and the lever, also guarantee a unique appearance. A taps with four different heights for sinks with different measures, an American faucet in two heights and a wall-mounted faucet with two-size spouts offer, apart from an optimal design, maximum comfort in the toilet. The C.1 line also offers an optimal faucet solution in all other areas of the bathroom, such as bidets, showers and bathtubs.

All this, with a simple design, clear shapes, with new materials, the expression of technology has been and will continue to be the main objective of Duravit to continue creating trends with original products that dominate quality, design and innovative technology that optimizes comfort.

Another Duravit Example of an Energy Efficient Home:

A prefabricated house convinces with its sustainability through energy efficiency

Chinese robotics company Unitree unveiled its newest robot, the A1, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in early 2020. Now Unitree is using social media to show off the tricks new robots can do.

UNITREE A1, the last quadruped robot

The robot is small, about a foot wide and two feet long, and can move surprisingly fast. Unitree says the robot’s walking speed is about ten feet per second or seven miles per hour. Walking is not the only thing they can do, as the videos show them performing all kinds of jumps and cartwheels, thanks to flexible joints and a strong motor. Each foot even has sensors that capture information to send to the motor for more efficient movements.

The A1 weighs around 26 pounds, including its battery, and has a battery life of up to two hours. It can also carry up to 11 pounds, with potential as a delivery robot. A smart camera enables streaming video in real time, with many potential public and private uses for the robot.

The A1 is already being compared to the Boston Dynamic Spot robot, arguably the best-known four-legged robot, with designs that reflect realistic movements that resemble people and animals,  leading to a strange valley effect  that can be uncomfortable for the spectators.

For now, Unitree appears to be looking at private property, tweeting that the robot could be a “future pet” and that they are “running with you into the future.” The company also emphasizes that it will cost less than $ 10,000, although it does not mention a specific price.

Is this microreactor the future of nuclear architecture?

The 50-foot-tall Aurora plant, designed by Oklo, unites old and new aspects of nuclear power.

Gensler’s design for Oklo’s Aurora micro-reactor and power plant. All images courtesy of Oklo.

Although nuclear power and weapons have influenced design since the  Atomic Age  , a new power plant designed by  Oklo  , developer of a 1.5MW compact passive fast reactor, is poised to start a new wave of nuclear architecture. The 50-foot-tall Aurora Microreactor Plant unites old and new aspects of nuclear power in several ways; Oklo made headlines recentlyAnnounced that Aurora, which is expected to begin operating in 2024, will be powered by low-enriched uranium from the Idaho National Laboratory. The use of HALEU (high enrichment and low enrichment uranium) is unique in that it takes advantage of already used nuclear fuel that has been discarded by large processing facilities, which often only use around 50% of the power potential of their core material Previously replacing it, Oklo, which launched in 2013 and debuted with the Aurora plant project in fall 2019, aims to recover 90-100% of the energy available within the fuel, using fast fission and fast reactors.

“We are using the same physical reactions, we are using fission, but almost everything we are trying to do is completely different from the industry, historically,” Caroline Cochran said    in a telephone interview with Hyperallergic. The microreactor and Oklo plant do not require water or a lot of land, and the small-scale footprint improves the ability to meet the energy needs of communities in remote locations, such as small Alaskan cities, but perhaps not just their needs. of energy. The Aurora plant also represents an evolution in the aesthetics of nuclear design, with Oklo’s conscious effort to make its power station accessible and attractive to the surrounding community.

The A-shaped plant shape is strong, weather resistant, and makes good use of sun angles for a variety of panels.

“We have been thinking a lot about how to meet their needs further, mainly to provide electricity, but how can we also be a meeting point?” Cochran said. “A town hall, a garden, an indoor pool, during the moments in Alaska when people don’t exercise much or don’t have access to fresh vegetables? That kind of things. How can the building itself be iconic and recognizable, but also take on the flavor of the available areas?

The company employed  Gensler  to focus on their vision of the structure, and decided on an A-frame structure that brings together various cultural references, practical considerations, and space efficiencies for Aurora. The team was inspired by structures including the  Cadet Chapel of  the  United States Air Force Academy  , and comments on the design have compared the smooth, domed triangular construction to a Star Wars building, a cathedral, a Swiss chalet. … and even some less elevated notions.

“One person thought they were being rude to us when comparing it to an IHOP,” said Cochran, “but I think it’s kind of interesting, the different opinions of what it reminds them of, and I’d say it’s a good thing.” . We were trying to think about the community aspects that we hope to develop together with them, and these will vary by site. ”

The mid-century feel of design is a fitting nod to the roots of the nuclear aesthetic of the atomic age.

In addition to mid-century aesthetics referencing the original era of nuclear design, A-racks are the strongest lattice construction, and therefore ideal for housing and protecting the working aspects of the power plant, including the supporting cranes that move the jobs inside the plant, but the angle of the sides also lines up well with the solar array that will be attached to the energy processing. In high snow and low light latitudes like Alaska, the angle of the A-frame roof throws snow and maximizes exposure to sunlight. But Oklo also has more fancy ideas for the panels, hoping to employ  Sistine Solar  in implementing custom solar panel designs, including one commissioned by the artist. Forest Stearns  for Aurora design, which creates a reflection of the Alaskan sky touched by Aurora Borealis.

Coming soon … Aurora lights the way for new approaches to nuclear power and design.

Everything about Oklo, including the company name, which refers to the Oklo region of the Gabon state in Central Africa, where  nuclear fission is a natural feature  of the prehistoric landscape, indicates that it is a company that thinks very holistically. on the role of nuclear energy. it plays in human society, in nature and in the universe. These nuclear innovators look to a future where people stop for a cup of coffee at their local power plant (radiation dose not included) before using that energy potential for deep space exploration. That’s a lot of weight on the shoulders of an A-frame structure, but for now, Oklo projects a healthy glow of confidence and potential in the quick-fission design and deployment.
