Philips improves its Ambilight technology with AmbiLux HDTVs. Starting with a 65″ model, these AmbiLux sets each have nine tiny projectors at the back that extend not just the color but also the general motion and shapes of objects on-screen.
While LED bulbs are nothing new, Philips upcoming bulb has a clear shell and light diffuser which lets you see the warm 2700K light source, just like an incandescent filament. Coming July 2014 for about $12(USD) per bulb.
A smart soundbar design that sits neatly beneath your TV for everyday viewing, but offers wireless, detachable surround speakers for movies. We also love the orientation sensor for tabletop placement.
It’s not new, but it’s clever: DDB Russia created this ad for Philips, which showcases an artist using their appliance to recreate painted masterpieces by Vermeer, van Gogh and Rembrandt on sheets.
Philips delves deep into their archives for this awesomely cheesy commercial from 1990 that’s not only a perfect time capsule for the music, but the tech, styles (and dance moves) of the era.
Mmmm. Donut. Sorry, you can’t eat these compact speakers from Philips, but you can wirelessly stream audio to them from your AirPlay-enabled iOS device. In AC or battery-powered models.
Philips speakers’ bulbous shape is designed to enhance dimensionality of sound. With AirPlay, they connect to iOS devices and iTunes libraries over WiFi. Hope they sound as good as they look.
Combining good looks with good sound, Philips’ speaker has a minimal docking stand that can even handle iPods and iPhones in cases. 2X50W power and deep bass round out this stylish package.
It may not be an iPod or Zune, but Philips’ GoGear packs in decent features for the cost: a cool, Zune-reminiscent interface, 2.8″ screen, Rhapsody integration, FM radio and Bluetooth.
