LG has made a 65-inch rollable OLED display

The screen will be shown at CES in Las Vegas in the coming week.

I was told by an LG representative that the TV will try to surface video-related content first based on your requests. So don't look for a massive roll-up TV in Best Buy just yet.

The Korean tech giant announced it is adding its ThinQ artificial intelligence (AI) software to all its appliances, enabling every device it makes - from TVs to air conditioners - to connect to the internet and each other. Ease of portability aside, LG Display showed off a unique application of the technology, with a custom-engineered TV that could be fully retracted into a box for those times when you don't want a 65-inch black panel cluttering up your living room. LG calls the design aesthetic "picture-on-wall" and, put in front of a non-techy, it would definitely give the illusion of a lovely art display. There are plenty of very big TVs out there but what makes this one interesting is the modular technology. Now, the world's first rollable 65-inch 4K OLED display offers a more realistic (yet still kinda crazy) use for OLED tech that's flexible. The big difference is form, with the E8 offering an evolution of LG's picture-on-glass design. The FZ800 TVs have built-in speakers while the FZ950 features a Dynamic Blade speaker. Sony and Panasonic said that they have plans to introduce 8K TVs by 2020.

GE has announced a 27-inch tablet that sits right on the range hood. The centerpiece, as LG mentioned earlier, is AI: all three lines support deep learning and Google Assistant control to allow for natural language voice control over everything from the TV itself to smart home devices. But it's most likely to be a prototype as well.

LG has unveiled the details of this year's TV lineup at CES 2018. LG officially unveiled its new TV tech for this year back on January 2nd, detailing that its new TVs would be coming with a new processor inside to power all the functionality, called Alpha, which is created to offer a range of improvements over the older processor used in previous TVs.

Interestingly, Samsung's enormous 146-inch TV, The Wall, has a panel where each bulb can be switched off.
