LG has unveiled one of the world’s stunning inventions to open-up 2018 in style with what David Katzmaier, a tech writer with CNET, described as rolling your future TV out of sight into a little box, thank LG Display.
The development comes as an advancement of the previous rollable, foldable, and bendable displays that has been previously used for smaller displays; – smartphones, smart watches and tablets among others.
According to Tomsguide’s Don Reisinger, the LG’s screen 65-inch OLED TV is exceedingly thin, allowing it to be scrunched inside a box, that LG says, is about the size of a soundbar.
Better yet, because OLED screens are generally lightweight, LG believes you’ll be able to tuck away your display and bring it with you from room to room.
LG has been on the cutting edge of advancements in the TV space and this brings not only the best of Technology there’s for TV but also their second super product in a space of just seven days. Last week, LG unveiled its first 8K television with 88-inch display, the biggest OLED television ever offered by the South Korean Company.
At last year’s CES, the world’s gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, LG announced its first “Wallpaper TV,” the Signature OLED TV W7, which measures just 2.85 millimeters thick, and mounts to the wall with magnets.
But as per now there’s still no word on whether LG will start this concept into a shipping product or what it might cost.
But what’s this Rollable display Technology all about?
This is flexible display that can be rolled up into a scroll. Technologies involved in building a rollable display include electronic ink, Gyricon, and OLED (organic light-emitting diode).
Electronic paper displays which can be rolled up have been developed by E Ink. At the CES 2006, Philips showed a rollable display prototype, with a screen capable of retaining an image for several months without electricity. As of 2007 Philips Polymer Vision expected to launch a 5-inch, 320 x 240-pixel rollable display based on E Ink’s electrophoretic technology.
Some flexible organic light-emitting diode displays have been demonstrated. The first commercially sold flexible display was an electronic paper wristwatch.
A rollable display is an important part of the development that will roll-away the computer.
