LG’s display division will showcase two flexible OLED concepts at CES 2022 — assuming the pandemic doesn’t claim the annual trade show is its latest victim. The first is the “Virtual Ride” stationary bike. It features three vertical 55-inch OLED screens that form one continuous screen in front and above the rider. The top plate bend radius is 500R. According to LG Display, this is the most extreme curve among large screens to date.
The second concept is “media chair”. It’s a chair with a 55″ OLED TV attached to it. It features 1500R bending, which LG says is ideal for a use case like this. It also includes the company’s Cinematic Sound OLED technology, allowing the screen to create sound without external speakers. Finally, the monitor can switch between portrait and landscape orientations at the touch of a button located on the armrest of the chair.
As with most CES concepts, the likelihood of seeing LG commercials for either a Virtual Ride or a Media Chair is slim. That’s not to say the company didn’t bring some of its earlier concepts to market (the OLED R comes to mind), but it’s best to see these latest ones as a demonstration of how much LG’s display technology has advanced in recent years.
