Samsung's New Soundbar Has Wireless Rear Speakers, Bounces Sound Off Your Ceiling

New advances in surround sound like Dolby Atmos don’t play well with all-in-one soundbar designs, though, which is why Samsung’s new K950 soundbar has wireless rear speakers, and 15 different internal speaker drivers across the surround setup, some of which bounce sound off your ceiling.

Sharp 8K Glasses-Free 3D Eyes-On: Future Is Hard

Sharp has been showing off an 85-inch 8K TV for years, and now the company is taking absurdly high-resolution to an ambitious new level with a prototype of an 85-inch 8K TV with Dolby glasses free 3D. That’s a lot of unproven tech in one concept.
