CES 2012 Preview: Appliances

Will there be a time when your refrigerator tells you that the milk’s about to expire or texts you a grocery list based on what items are low?

That time is here. Appliances keep getting smarter, and the CES Show 2012 on January 10-13 in Las Vegas will unveil the latest and greatest of consumer electronics, including appliances. The CES Show has a history of debuting products that revolutionize the industry and the Vann’s delegation plans on tweeting about the must-have electronics they’ll see at Vegas CES next week. To buy online appliances, be sure to visit the best online appliance store.

At the CES 2012, smart appliances are all the rage. Vann’s delegates can view these appliances among the 35 football fields of exhibits and can attend lectures such as AHAM’s (Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers) smart appliances panel discussion “Window to Tomorrow’s Connected Home.” But for those of who cannot attend Vegas CES, check out the CES products for the CES 2012 this year. LG Electronics received 12 prestigious 2012 International CES Show Innovations Awards, including the “Best of Innovations” honor in the Major Home Appliance category, so we’re highlighting LG’s must-have appliances soon to be available for purchase as online appliances.

A winner of the International CES 2012 Innovation awards, LG’s 31 cu. ft.French-door refrigerator LFX-31935, allows you to cool a 12 oz. beverage in 5, not 50 minutes using Blast Chiller technology. No more settling for a lukewarm beer or watering down your pop with ice; have it now, ice cold. This fridge will debut at the 2012 CES Show in addition to winning an innovation award.

Another LG product that won a CES 2012 Innovation award to be introduced at the CES Show 2012, the Robot Cleaner HOM-BOT (LrV5900), makes vacuuming effortless. With its “memorize” mode, this smart-vac can remember when it was last stopped and then start vacuuming from that spot (whether you stopped it manually or it shut off itself.) Its 51 sensors sense objects as thin as 1 cm. The robot vacuum already debuted in Asia and will have a full-fledged debut at your favorite online appliance store in the US after its presentation at the Vegas CES.

Finally, the honored front-load washer and dryer pairs (WM8000HVA/DLEX8000V and WM9000HVA/ DLEX9000V), featuring LG’s proprietary ThinQ technology, (pronounced “think you”) will be at the CES Show. ThinQ connects appliances to an existing Wi-Fi network. You can determine how much energy you’ll save from doing laundry, receive a texted grocery list based on what’s low in the fridge, or turn on an appliance remotely using your smart phone. You’ll be saving more time and money than ever with a smart appliance joining forces with your smart phone.

For all your online appliances needs, check out Vanns, the competitively priced online appliance store.

Now that you know what to expect from LG appliances at the CES show, be sure to read about video, tablets, and audio products set to debut at the 2012 CES Show!

Check back daily! We’ll be covering the CES conference before, during, and after to give you the preview of the next superstars in consumer electronics.
