LG to Release Giant TV You Can Roll Up

LG has announced the release of a paper-thin TV panel which can be rolled into a 2.4-inch diameter tube. Actually, the electronics company hopes to release two new paper-thin TV panels. They already unveiled a paper thin, 18-inch television panel prototype that can be rolled up into the shape of a thin cylinder, making television portable.

Instead of using “conventional plastic” for the backbone of the screen, the company said it used polyimide film. The material drastically reduced the screen’s thickness and gave it the flexibility needed to roll it into a tight cylinder.

Along with the flexible screen, LG showed off a transparent panel that has a significantly clearer picture quality than existing see-through LCD displays.
The company stated it is confident it will produce a paper thin, a 60-inch Ultra HD by 2017.
