LG adds 3D gaming to smart TVs

Five titles available and more on the way, according to LG

LG Electronics is adding 3D-enabled gaming to its smart TVs with the arrival of five titles in its app store, the company said on Sunday.

Owners of LG's Cinema 3D Smart TVs will be able to choose between Air Penguin, Frisbee Forever, Burn The City, Downhill Bowling 2 and Diversion with more games scheduled to be added in August, according to the consumer electronics maker.

Air Penguin was the top downloaded game app in the U.S. and eighteen other countries last year, according to LG. The success of the title has helped developer and publisher Gamevil surpass 120 million user downloads, the company said earlier this year.

Developed by Enterfly, Air Penguin debuted on the Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in April of last year and brought in US$1 million in less than a month, according to Gamevil.

Air Penguin and the other titles were picked specifically for their 3D playability, and have been optimized for LG's TVs. The remote works as a motion sensitive game controller, according to LG.

They will be available on LG's application and content store Smart World, but only in countries where the company offers paid services: U.K., Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Russia, U.S., Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Singapore, Philippines and South Korea.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
