We may never see LG’s incredible retractable phone hit the market now that the smartphone days are over, but the retractable TV we’ve been eagerly following for years is finally coming to the United States. You can now “inquire to buy one” on the company’s website, as noted by HD guru through Engadget
While the company doesn’t quote a price, we highly doubt you’ll get one for the $ 60,000 originally promised; the motorized TV-in-a-box went on sale in South Korea last October for 100 million won, or more than $ 89,000 in today’s US dollars. We wouldn’t be surprised if you had to pay for more than just the TV itself, as we reached a “custom integration specialist” voicemail when we called the number provided.
While the rollable TV is going to be quite the talking point, you should also know that it is a few years behind schedule when it comes to certain specs and image processing. But then again, if you’re the kind of person who can afford one, you can probably retire to the bedroom if you need more power, where your 98-inch 8K set is no doubt ready to embrace you with any of its 33 million pixels.
