Super-thin '4K' TV's will put HD to shame

NEED TO KNOW
  • 2013 International Consumer Electronics show going on now in Las Vegas
  • HLN digital lifestyle expert Mario Armstrong reports from the show

Most of us who work on Morning Express with Robin Meade are extremely jealous of HLN digital lifestyles expert Mario Armstrong this week. He's covering the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas for HLN. It's the equivalent of 7 football fields full bright, shiny, drool-worthy, future-tech. Basically the Super Bowl for gadget nerds, early adopters, and that guy who has to be the first of his friends to have the latest... well, the latest ANYTHING.

Speaking of "the latest," 4kTV is one of the big buzzwords at CES this year. Mario says these screens have a picture quality "four times" greater than your normal HDTV. Right now these uber-high definition screens cost tens of thousands of dollars... but these thin, bright, massive screens could be the future of home entertainment. 

There's a whole area at CES devoted to "digital health" where companies like fitbit are showing off the latest in tech that can help you keep on top of your fitness goals.

And of course there are the toys. From the latest in video games, to iPhone controlled legos, to a motorized skateboard called the zboard that takes off when you step on a small pad built into the deck.

Mario will be doing a digital deep dig on all that and more in the coming days here on HLN.
