LG Is Revealing A New Computer Monitor That Adjusts Itself To Meet A User’s Eye Line At The New IFA Convention

LG is planning on displaying a new AI-powered monitor that continuously moves to meet a user’s eye level at the upcoming IFA in Germany.

The IFA, or the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (Berlin Radio Show), is one of the oldest and most prestigious gatherings for the exhibition of consumer electronics. Starting in 1924 as a humble annual project, the IFA has now become a massive convention, with big hitters in the electronics field such as Phillips, Huawei, LG, Panasonic, and Fender joining the fray. What makes the IFA so interesting is that it’s not just a showcase for industry big shots; many up-and-coming smaller names make it into the convention as well, providing them with the platform needed to promote their state-of-the-art gadgetry. Honestly, it’s Comic Con for individuals who are really into technology and daily life maintenance.



While some products can be more gimmicky than others, I think LG’s new product is tracing the very thin in-between line. The UltraFine Display Ergo AI is a new monitor that the company will be showcasing at IFA, and according to devs, it utilized a mixture of algorithmic learning and solid camerawork to continuously change positions according to a user’s eye level. The aim is to provide users with consistently ergonomic positions via which they can view their content, work, and so forth.

Currently, the monitor is projected to make subtle changes in height, ranging from zero to 160 mm, coupled with a +20º to -20º range in tilt, promoting good posture in the process. The monitor can also be manually fiddled with, swinging upwards of 270º in extreme conditions. How the monitor itself moves is a question that LG has not answered or even addressed as of yet. I’m sure they’re waiting for the product to be unveiled at IFA before making any future announcements.

The monitor does raise a lot of interesting questions, however, about just how effective it will be in the real world. After all, even changes to a screen’s height in millimeters can lead to a ton of annoyance and neck pain if they keep occurring. The screen will have to adjust with either a relatively restrained pace or be lightning quick in its adjustments.
