LG Door-in-a-Door Fridge

The last time we checked in on refrigerator tech, we were seeing TVs in ’em. But that fad died out quick once people realized it just meant another place to get assaulted by Wayne Brady’s antics. Now this, LG’s Super-Capacity Refrigerator with Door-In-Door, is smart science. Instead of opening up the entire fridge for that one can of Mr. Pibb, the secret door allows you to store the items you grab more frequently. Or, if a Brady family member happens to visit, just hide the remote in there.

LG 55-inch OLED TV

Despite the unveiling of tablet toasters, wireless wires, and other 22nd century stuff at CES 2012, it’s been TVs, yes, televisions, that have generated a giant slice of the buzz. The buzziest? LG’s 55-inch 55EM9600, which looks like it will be the first sizable OLED TV on the American market. OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode, and it represents yet another step forward in terms of picture quality and form factor. This TV is so thin, you can’t even connect your components to it–a separate control box will host all your inputs and connect to the set with one proprietary cable. When it gets released sometime in the second half of this year (price unknown), the 55EM9600 will feature streaming and social media, the new Magic Motion remote with “four modes,” including a built-in mic, and passive 3D. Scope out our CES coverage, including shots of the LG 55″ OLED TV, here.

SFC Goes to CES

So Freaking Cool went to CES 2012 to scour the showroom floor for products that caught their eye. Unfortunately, that was almost every product there. So, instead of shooting every single thing, here are just a few for Wednesday. Also unfortunately, HP didn’t have a booth to show off the HP Envy Spectre.

Regardless, check out the gallery below. The first thing that caught the eye was the amazingly thin LG led panels. I got a paper cut just looking at them.

LG Nitro HD

Looking to restore coolness to the word “nitro” after it’s years of tarnish due to WCW Monday Nitro wrestling, LG’s Nitro HD smartphone is descending on AT&T customers like a Mick Foley suplex. The Nitro HD is the first smartphone in the AT&T stable to feature a  true high definition screen, and it’s their third 4G LTE device. This black beauty features a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 4.5-inch True HD AH-IPS display, 8-megapixel HD camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 20 GB of total memory (4 GB on-board plus 16 GB via In-box microSD). You can help make nitro cool again for $249.99 with a two-year commitment.
