This year CES is more about future selling than any time before. Only Google TV does look like as coming into the regular TV products as a vendor independent smart TV solution:

Other things in the very much hyped ‘3D without glasses’, ‘Ultra HD (4K) TV’, ‘transparent display’, ‘multiscreen convergence’, and ‘upgradable smart TV’ spaces are rather future selling than actual offerings from the industry this year. Below you can judge it for yourself:
1./A Dolby: No Glasses 3D First Look – CES 2013 [jon4lakers YouTube channel, Jan 8, 2013]
3D televisions have been around for a while now, but both passive and active glasses are a pain to deal with. A couple of companies have tried to work on glasses free solutions, but Dolby may have hit on the true winning combination with its new entry in the market. Not yet commercially released, Dolby’s new glasses free solution works somewhat like lenticular baseball cards, and it will allow people in the room to view the 3D effect from any angle. No release date has been announced yet for these televisions to hit the market, but Dolby is in active discussions with television manufacturers and content providers to integrate the technology.
