LG is not the only TV provider at CES this year -- but to kick off the show has revealed a 105-inch set, the 105UC9 ultra HD television.
The curved, 21:9 screen of the television, measuring 105 inches diagonally, is able to support a 5120 x 2160 5K resolution and the extra-wide screen has been designed to eliminate the black bars you usually see when watching a film. The television is equipped with a forward-facing 7.2 multi-channel sound system.
In addition to the new television set, LG has also showcased the UB9800 series 4K ultra HD TV model lineup, comprising of 65-, 79-, 84- and 98-inch units.

Many of us are interested in and what wearable technology can offer us, and a new pair of headphones produced by Vuzix appear to capitalize on this interest.
Unlike traditional headphones and reminiscent of Glass, the Vuzix V720 headphones come with a twist -- a channel for watching media. The V720 creates a virtual screen for you to watch movies or play games, and can be connected to PCs, mobile devices, and game consoles. The visor also supports 3D HDMI content.
However, it is not certain how much the headphones will cost once they appear in the market.

Windows 8 tablets are popping up fairly frequently, and Lenovo's latest offering is another model to add to the list.
The ThinkPad Tablet 8 is the first 8-inch model of the line and was revealed at CES 2014. Running on Windows 8.1, the tablet has a 1920x1200 display, Intel Z3770 Quad-Core 2.4Ghz processor, 2GB memory, 128GB of internal storage and both a front and rear-facing camera. In addition, the tablet comes with USB, HDMI and MicroSD ports, with either 3G, 4G LTE or Wi-Fi connectivity.
The tablet is touted to have up to 8 hours' battery life, and will be available at the end of January starting at $399.
Polaroid perked up this year in Las Vegas, and despite falling out of favor in the photography market, is now known for producing budget tablet computers.
At CES 2014, the company launched the new Q series: three bargain tablets running the latest version of Android, KitKat 4.4. The tablets come in 7-, 8-, and 10-inch models, ranging in price from $129 to $179.
Although relatively little is known at this point, the tablets will be shipped in spring this year.

Withings has shown off its latest tracking product at CES 2014, the Aura Smart Sleep System.
Also responsible for body activity analyzers, the firm's Aura product consists of a bedside gadget that records information including noise, room temperature and light level -- customizing light and sound in order to help the user get a good nights' rest.
In addition, Aura comes with a sleep sensor that slips under the mattress and monitors your breathing cycle, body movements and heart rate. Together, through a connecting app for your mobile device, you can better understand your sleeping patterns -- and perhaps make positive changes as a result.
The system will be available in the next few months for $299.
Netamo's "June" bracelet taps into the world of wearable technology, tracking how long you've been exposed to the suns' rays -- and whether the wearer needs to take action to stay safe.
The bracelet monitors your exposure to UV rays, and if you've been exposed to too much lying in the sun or being outside, will warn you so you can cover up or apply more sunscreen.
A step away from tablets, the Kolibree toothbrush is yet another product that taps into the mobility trend -- by hooking up your dental hygiene to your smartphone.
The Bluetooth-enabled toothbrush connects with an app on your mobile device in order to rank you on how well you're scrubbing those pearly whites. You can also track other members of your family to see how well they've brushed up in the morning -- perhaps useful (or overkill) for parents trying to make sure their kids remember to clean up after breakfast.
