As practical as technology can be, sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the beauty of what it can do.
We took a trip to the CES 2017 (Consumer Electronics Show) at the start of January. We saw some weird and wonderful tech, including laundry robot and self-flying drones. But one of the most memorable would have to be what we’ve dubbed ‘LG’s Tunnel of Screens’.
This tunnel consisted of 216 LG 4K curved OLED TVs put together to make a jaw-dropping display of the stars, space and oceans. LG showed off their new OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) screens. Because OLED doesn’t require a backlight like traditional LCD screens, they can be made super thin and with a slight bend. It’s this, combined with the ability to show a deeper black, that gave us the images you can see in our video.
Whilst OLED TVs are still quite expensive (between £1,500 and £3000 depending on size), it’s predicted that the price will begin to drop as they become more common. You’ll soon be able to enjoy the superior viewing angles of curved TVs and rich colours for the price of a normal smart TV.
