LG invented a bendable TV that sticks to your wall via magnets

At less than 1 mm thick, the display hangs on the wall via magnets.

LG Display showcased one of the most impressive applications of OLED technology: a 55-inch, 0.097 mm-thick TV panel that can mount magnetically on a wall — and peel right off again, just like wallpaper.

The paper-thin prototype is the perfect encapsulation of what makes OLED (organic light-emitting diode) such an exciting technology.  Since each pixel produces its own light, OLED TVs can function without the bulky backlight elements that traditional LCD and LED TVs require to produce a picture.

It’s just a concept, though — there’s no indication when or if a product like this will actually come to market. The purpose of the announcement was really to announce LG’s plans to focus on making OLED screens for products moving forward.

The TV screen itself is less than a millimeter thick, according to CNET.  For context, that’s about the same thickness as a paper clip.

The TV itself almost looks like paper.
