Berlin-based IFA is a leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances.
A key venue for retailers, buyers and experts from the home appliances industry and the media, IFA presents the very latest products and innovations. The trade fair attracts trade visitors from more than 100 countries every year. The first IFA took place in 1924, making it one of the oldest industrial exhibitions in Germany.
The world's biggest consumer electronics show is underway in Berlin and the big thing this year is the internet of things. Soon everything will be connected to anything, and while some might appreciate a fridge that orders food by itself, have we really been waiting for a mirror that warns us in the morning where wrinkles might develop?
Faster, better, brighter - that's what South Korea's LG is promising with its new V-30 smartphone. Not to be outdone, Sony has also come out with its new Xperia smartphone. It features a special camera that takes 3D pictures of objects and people. It's all on display at IFA in Berlin starting on Friday.
