Innovators and developers applied for the opportunity to present their grand ideas for apps or services to be used on webOS-based LG Smart TVs in millions of homes with the goal of improving and transforming how we live. Finalists were invited to present their ideas onstage to a panel of LG Executives including North America CEO, Thomas Yoon. 



Key2enable is dedicated to positively transforming the lives of children, regardless of their abilities. With a mission to elevate TV Time into dynamic learning adventures, this team presented an app for children to create a rich variety of personalized activities using AI integration. The Key2enable app is inclusive of play-based learning with comprehensive progress tracking and is inclusive for children with disabilities. The compatible KEY-X keyboard and accessories designed for children with motor, physical and cognitive disabilities aim to empower all children to connect with family and friends while fostering learning and growth. 



Traditional devices can pose accessibility challenges for disabled individuals, which is why AAVAA was developed to offer bionic technology for hands-free control of remote devices. By decoding brain and bio-signals to understand the user’s subtle commands, AAVAA software integration with webOS-enabled TVs would enable intuitive control and offer LG TV users with differing abilities a new way to experience controls.    

Docktor Connect


With a goal of redefining health technology with web-OS, the Doktorconnect app allows users a unique healthcare experience making it easier to address health and wellness in one place. With webOS-enabled TV integration, individuals would be able to easily conduct telehealth appointments from their device, store fitness data from activity watches and access health tools such as medication trackers, remote monitoring, home lab tests, hydration meters and more. The app is also compatible with Doktorconnect’s line of devices which includes health monitors, a sleep monitor and a body composition smart scale.
