LG made an 18-inch display you can roll up like a newspaper
30 Mar 2016
LG has shown off its new bendable, paper-thin TV panels, and it’s got us looking forward to a future with no cords, TV cabinets, and rickety stands. The South Korean company revealed a new 18-inch panel at a press show last week, plus two smaller iterations – one version that’s entirely transparent, and another that can be rolled up like a newspaper to a radius of just 3 centimetres.
According to LG, their new organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays are not only flexible enough to curve around the walls and corners of your home or office, they’re virtually impossible to break, and are thinner and lighter than any LCD screen currently on the market. You just need to attach a thin, magnetic base to your wall, and the ‘wallpaper’ screen can be placed on and peeled off at your leisure (see the video below).
