LG’s display department will present two flexible OLED concepts at CES 2022 – assuming the pandemic doesn’t argue at the annual fair as his last victim. The first is the “Virtual Ride” stationary bike. It features three vertical 55-inch OLED screens that form one continuous screen in front of and above the driver. The top plate has a radius of curvature of 500R. According to the LG Display, it is the most extreme curve among large screens to date.
The second concept is “Media Chair”. It is an armchair to which a 55-inch OLED TV is attached. It has a curvature of 1500R, which LG says is ideal for a case like this. It also includes Cinematic Sound OLED technology, which allows the display to create sound without external speakers. Finally, the screen can be rotated between portrait and landscape orientation by pressing a button located on the armrest of the chair.
As with most CES concepts, the likelihood of seeing an LG commercial in either Virtual Ride or Media Chair is small. This is not to say that the company has not brought some of its past concepts to market ( OLED R comes to mind), but it’s better to see the latest ones as an indication of how much LG’s display technology has advanced in recent years.
