Future Gadgets: Rollable Screen from LG

Although its still far from being perfect, the rollable screen from LG is already turning heads. Well, I can’t really imagine a tablet with a rollable screen right now, but who knows what would happen in the future? The tech demo at a certain conference was posted on YouTube and it looks very promising. You can see a lot of dead green pixels, but hey, theres still a lot of time for LG to perfect the technology. What do you think would be great practical uses for this rollable screen from LG? Let us know in the comments. 🙂

    1. Holy moly, these innovations just keep getting crazy! It’s funny it reminded me of screens used in Cinemas lol. Great practical uses? Hm. I was asking myself the same question. I think portability is the best I can think of.

      @Lendl LOL

  1. I’m not sure it would be too much use for gadgets, because from the way he’s holding it one crease and it would break. However it would be very useful for display, stands, conventions, outdoor events. Imagine just being able to pull sections of a screen out of a tube, unroll the sections onto a frame to produce a twenty foot screen, and roll it up and put it back something one person could carry.

    It might even be useful for permanent displays, if you had somewhere with a curve or angle that made a flat screen impractical. It even looks light enough that you could attach it flat to a ceiling and not worry if it fell on someone’s head!

  2. So very cool. Screens are always getting smaller and thinner, but I think this is super cool. Just slap it on your wall in front of your desk and free up so much desk room. Hell, I’m using two flat screen monitors and they still take up a good 1/5th of my desk space. I could use that space to clutter it up with more of my stuff!

  3. Wow, this is new info for me! A rollable screen? Imagine a tablet made exactly that flexible. It would really drop the possibility of breaking any kind of device. However, this is still a long way off. We still have to wait for this kind of thing. Imagine just how such a thing would look in your own room, instead of your TV, on a circular frame. I think anyone would like such a display.

  4. The main use I can think for this is being able to roll out a large map.
    Live points on it showing where people are.
    Like something from Harry Potter.

    Only time you’d contort it’s shape is to roll it up to put it away, dead pixels during folding is no longer a concern.

  5. How cool! I’m a bit of a geek and I love new technologies so I love the idea. I think one of its best advantages would be the possibility to roll it up and put it away, allowing us to save lots of space. It would be very useful for conferences and it could be carried more easily.
    The only doubt I have about it, concerns its solidity but I’m sure LG has already thought about it. I can’t wait to know more about this new technology!

  6. I’m not sure what the point of this device is. Why would anyone need to roll up their computer in the first place? Tablets have carrying cases, desktop P.C.’s stay at home on top of the desk, and mobile devices are… well, mobile and designed to be wearable already. If the goal of this product is to make it unbreakable, I’d say, “mission accomplished”, but if the goal is to introduce yet another redundant technology… yeah, mission accomplished on that too.

  7. I don’t see why devices these days should be rollable. I mean, what’s the deal? So you can travel with it or something? We’ve had solid durable phones and screens for decades, this seems like a really terrible idea, and it would decrease the durability and shelf life of any product dramatically.
