LG G5 became a game changer in the world of smartphone tech developments, they didn’t stick to the same type of smartphone but they continued to bring the best and new tech innovation and we’re so sure that other brands might follow.
The much talked about Modular Type on the LG G5 body is such a brilliant idea. LG lets you remove the bottom cover case and its battery and you are allowed to attach LG components on a modular type devices like camera controller and music player.
You can attach the LG Cam Plus with additional 1,200mAh battery on the LG G5, this will let you control the 16MP camera of the phone just like a real digital camera. Resolution and pixels are not sacrificed, but you are given a good convenience to control the shutter, aperture, zoom, recording and also better grip in holding the LG G5 with LG Cam Plus.
For music, the modular type body of the LG G5 lets you attach the LG Hi-Fi Plus with B&O PLAY, it’s a device that is also act as a portable Hi-Fi DAC audio player, it gives a much higher performance when it comes to playing music in 32 bit384Khz high def playback.

Short demo with the LG 360 cam
On my hand is the LG Rolling Bot, its like that droid Bb-8 from the Star Wars: Force Awakens movie. This Rolling Bot is like a rolling and roving CCTV camera with controller.
You can control the LG Rolling Bot via WIFI, can remotely controlled via a LG G5 smartphone. Im not sure if you can control it with other smartphone brands, but I was told that Android version should be Marshmallow, to allow App compatibility to control the Bot.
There’s a walkie talkie function for communication and controls too if you want to have a play time with your pet dogs and cats.
You can view the live camera view of the LG Rolling Bot via live and remote stream to your LG G5 smartphone.
LG Rolling Bot is the future of CCTV in our homes.
I will buy one once available in commercial market.
Also spotted at the booth is the LG Music Flow
A much more wooden-like body – but looks more better than that old and heavy LG Music Flow
LG mobile projector.
