LG Displays showcases some interesting use cases for flexible OLED screens
These are cool concepts that don't come with a price tag attached to them.

Flexible OLED display panels have found meaning in gaming monitors and foldable devices, which are certainly growing in popularity every passing day, but that’s certainly not all there is to the tech. At the upcoming CES trade show, LG Displays will showcase a couple more innovative applications - a reclining Media Chair and a Virtual Ride. 

Media Chair

The Media Chair is basically a rotating reclining chair attached to a 55-inch curved OLED TV with just the optimum space between the two for a comfortable and immersive TV viewing experience. There are speakers in the chair and there is also LG’s Cinematic Sound OLED technology where the panel vibrates to produce sound. 

The display itself has a 1500R curve that LG says is best suited to keep the media in perfect focus. The TV also repositions itself for the optimum viewing distance as you recline the chair. Users will also be able to switch between portrait and landscape orientation using the button on the right armrest. 

Of course, this is just a concept for now and doesn’t come with a price tag attached. This could, however, someday be available to consumers for an exorbitant price and by then it could also integrate massage pads.

Virtual Ride

Virtual Ride combines three 55-inch Curved LED displays with one curved at a tight 500R bend to create an immersive outdoor riding experience. LG is also pitching this as a more pragmatic VR headset alternative for riders, but we doubt if it would feel as immersive. 

Anyways, the good thing is that with more products using foldable OLED displays, the technology will gradually become a tad more accessible to the masses. Let’s wait and watch.
