It remains just a concept for now, but it shows plenty of promise.
LG has unveiled its vision for a fully artificially intelligent home, from super-sharp TVs to smart fridges, dishwashers and helpful robots. However, none of them have been really foldable other than being just bendable.
Artificial intelligence helps the fridge "understand your needs" - in other words, it will create more ice at dinner time, once it has learnt that's what you like. LG showed off its 65-inch OLED display, the "world's first", at CES in Las Vegas. Also, LG managed to further flawless its Crystal Sound OLED technology. You can roll the screen up and tuck when you want to watch the TV. It was an 18-inch "rollable" TV sporting 1200x810 resolution. There are plenty of big TVs out there but what makes this one interesting is the modular technology.
Those with long memories will recall that LG actually showed off a rollable TV screen at CES 2016, but there was one key difference: at 18in, it was smaller than most computer monitors, and wasn't ready for prime position in the living room.

LG touts the portability and storage options made available by its new rollable television.
Panasonic has announced two new TVs, the FZ950 and FZ800.
There's also a new AI OLED B8 (55 and 65-inch). Panasonic did not give any details on the prices but the TVs are said to be launching in spring. These TVs will also be compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa so the capabilities of what can be done with either of these new TV lineups is fairly extensive. But now its latest - and much larger - display can roll up, too. Samsung is yet to make a mark in the particular segment. LG says its ThinQ AI can spot problems with the appliances and help diagnose the issue and get it fixed via a local fix center - we reckon this could make an interesting post-purchase revenue stream.
Global shipments of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs grew 133% year-on-year in November, reaching a new monthly record of 270,000 units, according to IHS Markit.
