One of the most popular sections of CES every year is the Central Hall, filled with all of your favorite TV manufacturers showing off their latest technology that will be released that year (and in years to come in some cases). Last year, LG stole a lot of attention with their rolling TV that can slide down into a box and disappear (in case you need something like that in your living room). Although not many would be looking for such a TV, it shows what companies can now do with OLED technology.
Now, LG is now upping their game by showing off a new version of the display they had last show that can roll down instead of up. Instead of resting on the ground, it could allow you to mount it to your ceiling and roll it down like a projection screen (only with the quality of an OLED). If something like this were to become affordable, you could quickly see projectors going away (or at least a steep drop in projector sales).
Of course, affordable isn’t going to be a variable associated with these any time soon. In fact, they still haven’t released the one from CES 2019 that rolls up. So we still don’t know how much any of these are going to cost just yet, but I am sure you can come up with your own assumptions related to the rich and famous.
One thing is for sure, you can look forward to learning more as we come back from the show next week with some visuals so that you can see what it looks like.
Update — Here is our interview with LG at CES 2020 discussing their Rollable Signature R OLED TV:
