LG Display has presented its new transparent TV at the virtual event CES 2021.
The new TV has a 55-inch OLED panel with a transparent design that allows you to see through it even when it is turned on and displays an image.
The screen achieves 40 percent transparency, according to LG Display, which is an improvement over previous transparent LCDs that only achieved 10 percent transparency.
LG imagines the screen placed at the foot of a bed, where it could be partially or totally raised to show information or videos, being able to see through it. The panel as designed has built-in speakers as it uses vibrations from the screen to produce audio.
LG says that the transparent OLED assembly can be moved around the house if you want to place it elsewhere, and it is also useful in shops, transport windows, restaurants, etc.
Transparent OLED is a technology that maximizes the advantages of OLED and can be used in various places in our daily lives, from shops, shopping malls and architectural interiors to autonomous vehicles, subways and airplanes. It will become a next-generation display that can change the existing display paradigm.
This is just one of many experimental LG Display prototypes, some of which are turned into actual products that can be purchased over time.
At the moment, there is no indication that LG’s new transparent OLED TV will become a real product at some point in the future or how much it could cost if it does.
