LG Display, which the company producesPanel used in , , And others around the world also showcase some of the best, most futuristic concept technology at CES. Its private booth is where I am first In 2016 and where i also experienced Two years later. Also where i am And rest in one .
TogetherI won’t get a chance to personally experience the booth this year, but the company’s online showroom is the next best thing. This year, its focus is on the new transparent OLED screen, which LG has improved to provide 40% transparency compared to 10% for current generations. The displays you can see are not new – LG has deferred them for some time in commercial applications, and earlier this year . LG, the only transparent OLED manufacturer in the world, supplies those panels but as usual it is not talking about specific products for sale with its latest concepts.
The online showroom will display the following scenarios, each with a 55-inch transparent OLED screen.
- Smart Bed: Press a button and the transparent OLED screen rises from a frame of the foot of the bed to display TV shows or other information. The screen itself serves as a speaker – a feature found on some current OLED TVs – and LG says the frame and its transparent screen can be moved to other areas of the home.
- Restaurant Partition: Shown as part of a sushi bar, screens between customers and chefs can display menu items or videos while people wait for their food, while still allowing the audience to see the chef at work and the integrity of the division Allows to maintain.
- Subway Train Window: A window installed in a metro train can display route information, weather, news and maps at the same time as riders look outward.
LG says there is increasing demand for transparent screens in smart homes and buildings, as well as driverless cars, aircraft and subways. The “smart bed” I find the least useful among the three scenarios in a virtual showroom of 2021, but it’s easy to imagine a future where such displays are so cheap and ubiquitous that video or information on any common transparent surface, from windows Glass can be seen from coffee table to glasses. It’s not as mind-blowing as roll-up TV, but it is arguably more practical.
A great thing about virtual CES is that, for the first time, booths can be made available in person, in person. LG says that its online showroom will be open to all general visitors during CES 2021.
