Re: LG Shows-Off A Display that Hangs Like Wallpaper

Absolutely cool tech as a proof of concept, but I'm finding a hard time imagining the actual need for something like this? At what point does it become practical?

Perhaps there won't be a valid application in homes...but I'm imagining it would ease the burden of installation of large (80-in plus) screens.

That's exactly what I was thinking as well, large screen that is easier to install.

Let's not forget about the coolness factor too when people walk into you home, like it or not that drives a lot of sales.

Re: LG Shows-Off A Display that Hangs Like Wallpaper

In the photo, I see the model pressing her hand against the screen. So, I am assuming, you don't get any finger prints on the screen? Just curious.

Main:
Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Wii U Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Sub

equipment pics.

Good point. I can't imagine that the screen's surface is truly finger-print resistant...how about applied pressure? The screen is so thin, it seems like a firm hand (or fingers) could damage it with pressure.

Re: LG Shows-Off A Display that Hangs Like Wallpaper

Unless of course the coating that is on the screen is some type of filter that blocks finger prints as well as any other marks applied when pressing the item against the wall. If this ever becomes a reality, it will be interesting to see what it is and if there this a special coating, what it does to the PQ.

I think in the future, people will be rolling OLED panels onto their ceilings for general lighting in addition to having a huge, high quality TV that sits almost flush with the wall. Amazing.

I have my own website
