LG calls Omnipod “a conceptual mobile solution that blurs the distinction between home and car,” but the company couldn’t resist adding all sorts of crazy tech to the camper. It could be the mobile home of tomorrow, but it is also self-contained and powered by a virtual assistant filled with modular automotive technology, and an adaptive interior with a Meta Environment Screen to top it off.
LG’s all-plus-the-kitchen sink approach looks odd, but given the Korean company’s large scale and limited booth space at CES, we understand. Squeezing a lot of concepts into the volume of a small van makes sense, and that’s what makes the Omnipod so interesting.
This isn’t LG’s first foray into the automotive universe, as the electronics giant has a long-standing relationship with the automotive industry. LG unveiled a smaller concept at CES two years ago to showcase the company’s approach to autonomous driving and connectivity. But this time everything is bolder.
LG presents Omnipod as “expanding personal living space on the road.” The company has managed to squeeze its many businesses into this small capsule, from cars to refrigerators. The concept of pull-out furniture is nothing new, but it goes to a whole new level.
One of the most interesting features of the concept is its connection to the Metaverse. It consists of a Meta Environment display system with responsive internal screens capable of displaying the external environment of the resident’s choice. The whole concept would be incomplete without an AI Concierge Service based on virtual assistants that allow you to control many functions, including lighting and temperature, and even order food from your Omnipod.
