Comments Off on LG unveils a 55-inch ‘wallpaper’ OLED TV that hangs on the wall with magnets

It’s been four years since LG Display unveiled their first curved OLED (organic light-emitting diode) televisions , and by the time this year’s CES rolled around, they were able to unveil seven new models . Now, at a press conference in Korea, the company has unveiled a mind-boggling 55-inch ‘wallpaper’ display that is just 0.97mm thick and weighs 4.1 pounds. This incredibly thin panel is possible as OLEDs do not require a backlight, and the electrical components are not contained within the TV itself. The entire piece can be mounted on the wall against a magnetic mat, which opens the possibility for televisions to become an even less imposing presence in living spaces. But, we can’t get too excited yet; the ‘wallpaper’ TV is, at this point, just a proof of concept—and should it make it onto the market, it is entirely probable that—much like its OLED TV predecessors—it will be prohibitively expensive. + LG Display Via The Verge Image via LG Display Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: energy efficient tv , lg display , OLED , oled television , OLED TV , oled tv concept , organic light emitting diode , super thin tv , thinnest television

In an effort to explore the issue, National Geographic commissioned writer Charles C Mann and photographer Anand Varma to produce a story called Quest for a Superbee for the May 2015 issue of the magazine.
