LG unveils a 65-inch OLED TV screen that rolls off the ceiling during CES 2020
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, LG will unveil an OLED TV that unfolds from the ceiling and a TV that “hangs like wallpaper.”
The 65-inch UHD Roll-Down TV can be stored in the ceiling and pulled down when desired or rolled up when not in use.
A 77-inch UHD Film Cinematic Sound & Wallpaper OLED display is also shown that can be hung as a wallpaper.
The larger screen has a paper thin screen and a sound system embedded in the screen.
OLED video walls, made from 55-inch OLED screens installed on the wall of an aircraft, enable passengers to ‘feel more openness’ in the narrow space of a closed cabin
The devices point to ‘the future of interior design’, according to LG Display.
The company also displays its OLED video walls installed in the interior of an aircraft to “create a new perception of flight.”
This gives travelers the experience of feeling more open ‘in the small space’ of a small cabin and helps with the departure of a long-distance flight.
The flexible display allows passengers to adjust the curvature of the display to their preferences, whether they play games or watch movies.
Another display with 40 percent transparency between cabin sections shows videos and passenger information, such as safety videos.
WHAT IS OLED?
OLED, or organic light emitting diodes, works by passing electricity through certain materials that glow red, green and blue.
It is the only TV technology that creates color in this way. For example, LCDs use color filters and liquid crystals that block light to create an image.
In the meantime, plasmas use UV light by activating gas bags that create red, green and blue phosphors.
This means that OLEDs can be thinner and more flexible than any other television technology currently on the market.
LG says it will also show off plastic OLED screens for cars and interactive screens for use in schools, offices and museums during this year’s show, which takes place from January 7 to 10 at Las Vegas Convention Center.
At CES 2019, LG unveiled a rollable TV screen that can disappear into an aluminum base when not in use and take a ‘minimal amount of real estate’.
A year since its unveiling on CES 2019, the screen is not yet available for purchase, but “soon.”
The consumer technology showcase takes place in Las Vegas from January 7 to 10 and we have viewed some of the most striking devices.
Samsung’s borderless TV
LG’s main rival and compatriot Samsung unveils the world’s first frameless TV during the show next week.
According to a report from SamMobile, the TV set will not have an outer edge – following its borderless smartphones – which means that the screen fits seamlessly against the background.
In anticipation of the expected disclosure, the German site 4KFilme has released what they claim to be the first official photos of the TV, showing a chameleon-like conformity with the background setting.
Samsung has not even confirmed the existence of the TV, but urged its Twitter followers to put the keynote in a cryptic post at 9:30 PM Eastern on January 6 (2:30 AM the next day) see.
Samsung has released a vague sounding teaser on Twitter on Tuesday that may be the precursor to the official announcement of an OLED TV without a frame
A photo leaked through the German site, 4K Film (above) is said to be the first ever image of Samsung’s ringless TV soon to be revealed
This year an e-bike is also being demonstrated by the French energy technology company Nawa that can quickly store and discharge energy released during braking.
The bike’s ultra capacitor system acts as a secondary power source for the engine, which is elegantly positioned above the battery in the motorcycle frame.
The Racer has a 99 hp engine that can run from 0-62 km / h in less than three seconds and comes with a 9-kWh lithium battery.
The Nawa racer is just a concept; Nawa does not intend to release the Racer commercially, but hopes that the energy system will inspire other manufacturers.
The Nawa Racer will partially feed itself on energy that is converted from its break system
The Townew waste container from the Toronto-based technology company Knectek Labs has already been awarded an innovation prize by a CES.
The trash can opens with a hand movement to receive waste and automatically closes garbage bags with the push of a small button, so users don’t have to cover their hands with slimy garbage.
The refill mechanism contains a long garbage bag that is divided into separate liners by a small cutting mechanism.
User still needs to take the sealed trash bag out of the trash can, which is for sale for $ 100 (£ 75).
Townew is a futuristic new garbage bin (pictured above) that automatically closes old garbage bags and rolls new ones to keep users’ hands clean
Seattle-based automation provider Picnic will provide those present at CES 2020 with pizza made by his own robot chef.
With a combination of nozzles and dispensers, the Picnic robot produces up to 300 12-inch custom pizzas per hour on the CES exhibition floor.
“This is a robot that does not become a CES exhibitor and only shows futuristic concepts,” said Clayton Wood, CEO of Picnic.
“It is already used in real kitchen environments and will only continue to expand its capabilities, as can be seen from Picnic’s delivery of mass-produced food production and delicious pizzas to CES participants.”
The Picnic robot system can apparently perform any number of tasks for assembling food in any order, configurable to the process of each restaurant

After the controversy surrounding the disqualification of the Ose vibrator by the sex technology company Lora DiCarlo toys last year because it is “immoral and obscene,” CES 2020 marks the first year that sex technology products may be eligible for awards.
Lioness is marketed as the first vibrator to use data, which it collects via its “biofeedback sensor” to visualize female orgasms.
The developer is the first vibrator company to have public advertisements at bus stops in San Francisco.
The ten finalists for the Last Gadget Standing award – which was voted on by the participants of the event – were announced on Thursday by hundreds of candidates.
Other contenders include a hug that is also a learning robot and a smart button that offers an alternative to voice commands as a way to control multiple smart devices.
