A rolled-up TV in a box seems pretty weird at first... This is dope tech with potential! This is the LG OLED TV R.

    Remember back to the future 2 where they had a tv that rolled up. Well now it’s real

    The aspect ratio height change suggestion tends to be almost redundant to apply in the case of a TV because there are no unsightly bars one 21:9 movies because the pixels that aren't in use will just turn off because it's an OLED panel.

    LG'S OLED'S ARE STUNNING. I'VE HAD A CURVED 55" FOR OVER TWO YEARS AND I'M STILL THRILLED WITH IT. THIS SEEMS TO TAKE UP MORE SPACE THAN A STATIC TV. A CURVED SCREEN IS A LOT COOLER THAN A BOX WHEN IT'S OFF.

    I had thought the same thing about the aspect ratio. It would be great if it would shrink if the content is 21:9 and such.

    The only useful I can see this is to hide tv from toddlers and prevent them from breaking that very thin smart tv.

    it is a disadvantage if you need to switch on the tv urgently.... gotta wait for it to unfold...

    Kunta Kinte You don't have to close it every time you're finished watching though, you can just leave it open.

    Can’t wait for them to apply this to tablets and phones. So disappointed in Samsung right now for going foldable when they’re the ones that came up with the rollable idea in the first place...

    Scaled down, this may be a better version of the “foldable” phone

    Whats the point of it? Its a large ass box that takes up space either on your floor or a shelf. It doesnt give the function that actual furniture does. It has no drawers, you cant really put much on top of it. Its just a large box, taking up space. It takes time to roll out. Its unnecessary mechanics that can break. Theres superthin wallpaper TVs that take up no space and can camoflauge itself into your wall when not used, no rollout time. So why use this? Its like trying to impress a 10 year old with unnecessary "cool" mechanics. Kinda what AUDI usually do with their cars. Having displays and AC units rolling out when the car turns on with unnecessary mechanics that take time when display and ac can just be out all the time.

    And what’s the benefit of this really? I rather use my TV as a mirror or a painting instead.
