We’ve all seen the way technology evolves and how it has taken over the world in every possible way. From minimalist cellphones to the feature loaded smartphones of today, we’ve come a long, long way. Even our cars now have computers and all sorts of tech in them. So what makes us think that TV’s were going to stay the same? We all remember the huge CRT TVs that stood on wooden pedestals and required us to get up off our comfy seats to change the channel! Well, all that’s changed now!
With the advent of LCD screens, TVs started to get thinner and displays started to get sharper. How awesome was it to not have to look at the huge TV in the center of the room? Televisions got more aesthetically pleasing and looked like they could almost be a style statement! But in 2018, everything is about to change.
LG has recently announced their first Rollable TV! Yes, you read that right. It’s a full 65 inch OLED display that literally can be rolled up into a small box. We’ve been thrust into the future and we can’t believe that something like this actually exists. We’ve all heard about the LG Wallpaper TV and how it was essentially thinner than a smartphone. But now, the Korean tech giant has gone a step further and will be displaying the Rollable TV at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2019.
Even though CES can be looked at as a tech fantasy, a lot of products do actually make it into the market. And, as far as we’re concerned, we can see a lot of cool and important uses of a flexible display. From medical uses to displays during wartime, a flexible screen would come in really handy.
We’re not sure when the full product will hit the market, but LG have already released the Wallpaper TV and even though it costs a bomb, it makes for an interesting conversation starter.
