LG’s display division will present two flexible OLED concepts at CES 2022 – provided the pandemic doesn’t claim the annual fair as the last victim. The first is the “Virtual Ride” exercise bike. It has three vertical 55-inch OLED displays that form a continuous screen in front of and above the driver. The top panel has a radius of curvature of 500R. According to LG Display, this is the most extreme curve among large screens to date.
The second concept is the “media chair”. It’s a recliner that has a 55-inch OLED television attached to it. It has a curvature of 1,500R, which LG says is ideal for a use case like this. It also includes the company’s Cinematic Sound OLED technology, which enables the display to produce sound without external speakers. Finally, the display can switch between portrait and landscape format with the push of a button on the armrest of the chair.
As with most CES concepts, the likelihood that LG will market either the Virtual Ride or the Media Chair is slim. That’s not to say the company hasn’t launched some of its previous concepts (the OLED R comes to mind), but it’s better to see these latest ones as an example of how much LG’s display technology has advanced over the past few years.
