Still feeling the incredible tech vibes from 2016's CES, we need to kindly remind you of that awe-insipiring rollable LG's display.
This futuristic 18-inch Full HD OLED (O stands for organic) clearly shows the direction LG's heading in the near future, namely announcing the arrival of bendable, rollable, and curving displays, as presented at the 2016 CES. The prototype that was on display is not an actual product yet, but it does confirm the fact that the last 10 years of developing flexible screens at LG were definitely not in vein.
Did we just hear someone cry out ''This is revolutionary!"? Well, it certainly is, as it will, we're sure, completely revolutionize the way we percieve and use TVs, smartphones and tablets.
We've already established it is higly flexible, meaning you can easily roll it like a newspaper, put it in your bag and carry it with you wherever you go, without fear of damaging it. Promising absolutely crazy picture quality and contrasts, LG intends to make a display that's larger than 18 inches (the goal is set at 55 inches and more), showcasing even more than current 1,200 by 810 pixels.
Two things need be mentioned that don't speak in favour of the OLED prototype. Currently, the OLED shows many dead pixels and what's perhaps even worse, you need to be aware of the fact that the OLED is not supposed to be rolled out flat like a poster - otherwise it could get seriously damaged. That's something LG will most likely work on in the future.
At this time, it is not yet known, when the next generation displays will be available to public, nor how much would they cost. But future times are looking promising indeed!
And here's an interesting look at LG's vision of future displays (video curtesy of YouTube user FlatpanelsHD):
