The thinner the display the better is the picture quality, view and outlook. Looks like it will get so thin that once it's like a plastic film or may be something like paper.. I wonder sometimes the video can be seen right in air or on one's hand..

With this kind of thickness, the display can be used in many scenarios well beyond watching TV.

True, in electronics it has become a fashion to have and keep updated stuff, manufacturers are coming up with newer versions stating the newer ones are advanced and then market it like that. And this adds the pricing to 10 times or higher, where a similar piece of hardware will be available at very low cost in Chinese market.

They are reacting now to the turbulence of innovation and disruption. These devices are all commoditized and anyone that thinks otherwise has not read the specs or manuals. These marginal "innovations" are designed to make someone see a small differentiation to choose. The prices are already flat that price is not the key differentiator.  Go to China and you can get some really good tablets for $90.

cookiejar: You are absolutely right, from the practical point of view. I have always been a fan of small and light for mobile devices--please somebody invent the Dick Trace watch--but I suppose the advantage of thinner/lighter TVs is less expensive ways to mount them so they tilt and swivel--have you seen the prices on some of those wall-mount gadgets for conventional flat panels? In any case, "thinner-is-better" is a trend that is here to stay so we might as well look on the bright side :)

I've never been able to understand the need for thinner and thinner displays once they reached 1".  Articulated wall mounts are a lot thicker.   I suppose it's become a status symbol for the latest technology.  No doubt, the thinner the screen, the more likely it is to get broken - simple mechanics.  So in that sense, it's a cash cow for the manufacturers.

The most impressive TV display I've seen was one surrounded by a very ornate picture frame.   It reminded me of the way the paintings of old masters have been presented for centuries. The frameless TV has become just too commonplace.  Curved TVs seem ridiculous, as nobody sits close to the center of curvature. I suppose the curvature distortion has to be obvious so the viewer appreciates he's watching a curved screen.

It seems that the consumer electronics industry is trying to avoid commodity pricing by getting into fashion, while the car industry is getting into electronics to increase update sales.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
