this week’s CES technology expo, LG will be one of many TV makers to
show off an impressive lineup of super-duper-high-definition TVs. But
there’s one thing that separates LG from the competition.
The 18-inch display is just one of the concept designs LG will be
unveiling, as it attempts to predict the future of television screens.
Also on display will be a 55-inch TV that is as thin as a piece of paper
and a 65-inch "extreme-curve" set of TVs that bend inwards and outwards.
Like automakers’ "concept cars," LG’s TVs are meant to show off what’s
possible, even if it’s not yet marketable, affordable or able to be
mass-produced for customers. But some elements of LG’s creations may
come to your next television screen.
TV makers continue to up the ante, developing ultra-high definition
televisions that produce richer pictures, virtually unnoticeable bezels
and thinner profiles. But those TVs are becoming virtually
indistinguishable from one another.
