The televisions of CES 2013 are the sharpest, brightest, slimmest, biggest, and smartest TVs tech companies have ever shown — but they're also the priciest. With last year's 4K (four times the pixels of a 1080p display) screens now being called UHD — short for Ultra HD — TVs, display resolution is front and center as a key feature, which is unfortunately out of the everyday consumer's budget. Take a look at many of the TVs announced so far at CES, and stay tuned for more to come.

The microwave drawer works like a normal microwave, except that it's built like an oven. According to the Sharp website,
Now microwave cooking is easier for every cook in the family, with no need to remove the dish from the oven to check, stir, or turn the food. For even greater convenience, the new Easy Open Microwave Drawer Oven opens automatically with a gentle pull of the handle. Just push it gently and it closes automatically, even if your hands are full.
Sounds like the microwave of the future has arrived. I like it because the microwave has always been a bulky kitchen appliance, but with this sleek interpretation, you can have clutter free counter tops! How about you? What do you think?
