There has been a drastic switch to the digital side with the emergence of NFTs. While the fashion industry is leading the arena, tech giants aren’t far behind. Earlier in March, Samsung allowed its customers to buy and sell NFTs through an integrated platform available on select smart TVs. Now, LG has released an NFT marketplace on three of its TV models with the help of the Hedera blockchain — a project that the company backs by being a part of its governing council.
The tech giant’s platform is called LG Art Lab and it allows people to buy, sell and display digital art in the form of NFTs on their televisions, according to an announcement. LG’s Art Lab is available in the US on televisions running webOS 5.0 or later, and offers an NFT marketplace on three of its TVs, all supported by Nifty Gateway.

Google’s also adding the ability to tell maps if your car has a diesel, gas, hybrid, or electric powertrain, so it can find the most efficient route for your vehicle, and provide more accurate estimates on how much more efficient the eco-friendly route is.
