LG Display Unveils A Rollable Television
LG Display is responsible for many high-quality television sets on the market, but their newest invention is among their most unique – a television that rolls up like a poster into its accompanying rectangular box.

In 2016, LG debuted a rollable 18-inch TV. This year, LG debuted its direct successor, a 65-inch OLED TV that can roll up into the box that rests beneath it. The box itself is roughly the size of your average sound bar, so it doesn’t take up too much space and it will allow you to easily move your TV when need be. One of CNET’s writers asked about the portability of the box, to which the LG rep noted that early versions of it included handles to aid in their maneuverability.
The demo’s descent into its box also doesn’t have to go all the way; the top of the TV can protrude from the box, allowing you to read an information bar on the set. The TV can also rest at a 21:9 aspect ratio, meaning you can enjoy fine cinema without black bars if you wish.
LG Display has been mum regarding the finer details of the TV, such as when it will launch or how much it will cost.
