(1) Hyundai Walking Car Concept is the Future of the First Responder Industry. Hyundai, Jan 7, 2019 (video)
https://www.hyundainews.com/releases/2680
("Debuting at CES 2019, 'Elevate,' the Ultimate Mobility Vehicle (UMV) * * * [presenter:] John Suh, Hyundai vice president and head of Hyundai CRADLE [project]. * * * The robotic leg architecture has five degrees of freedom plus wheel hub propulsion motors and is enabled by the latest in electric actuator technology. This design is uniquely capable of both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits, allowing it to move in any direction. The legs also fold up into a stowed drive-mode, where power to the joints is cut, and the use of an integrated passive suspension system maximizes battery efficiency. This allows Elevate to drive at highway speeds just like any other vehicle. But no other can climb a five foot wall, step over a five foot gap, walk over diverse terrain, and achieve a 15 foot wide track width, all while keeping its body and passengers completely level. Further, the combination of wheeled motion with articulating legs provides a new paradigm of mobility by enabling faster walking speeds, unique dynamic driving postures and torsional control at the end of each leg")

Note: the video does not show how Elevate may be able to climb VERTICAL wall, or jump.

(2) LG Signature OLED TV R: Roll Out the Future. Hyundai, Jan 7, 2019 (two video clips)
https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED65R9PUA-signature-oled-4k-tv#
(upper right corner of Web page: "OLED65R9PUA [presumably the model number]  COMING SOON - LG SIGNATURE OLED TV R9 - 4K HDR [my guess: high-definition rollerable] Smart TV - 65" Class (64.5'' Diag)" )

Note: David Pierce and Katherine Binfley, Now Playing in Vegas: Walking Cars, Roll-Up TVs and Airborne Ubers. Wall Street Journal, Jan 10, 2019,
(a) whose caption for the TV is as follows (in toto): "LG Signature OLED TV R rolls ups [sic] and disappears [rolls down] into its speakers-embedded base when you aren't using it. Leave it partway up to use as a control panel for your entertainment center."

The last sentences is not explained.
(b) whose caption for another photo is (in toto): "Bell;s Nexus air taxi, due in the mid-2020s, could be hailed from an Uber app."

Bellflight.com does not have an video -- or an animation. But my guess from viewing sketches (that is all there is) is the VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) has six tilt rotors ("tilt" as in Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey).
