At CES this year, the Internet of Things seems less novel and more expected. While “artificial intelligence” is a more broadly used buzzword, IoT often takes on a supporting role. Consider, for instance, the LG Signature OLED TV R television, which is one of the stars of the show. The TV’s main selling point is that it can roll up, disappearing into its base. But like other new LG TVs, the LG Signature OLED TV R also offers voice-assistant support: In addition to Alexa and Google Assistant integration, the TV also offers compatibility with AirPlay 2 and HomeKit, making it possible to control the TV with Apple’s Siri as well.  

In the following feature, we round up a series of highlights from the show — from self-driving shuttle buses to taxis to smart mirrors and beyond.
