LG recently showcased a proof-of-concept for a 65″ OLED TV that rolls up and down like a giant piece of paper. More than just a party trick, the flexible display can be set to different heights to vary its aspect ratio, and can even be used at about a third of its height.

Designed with Yves Behar’s Fuseproject, The Frame is an upcoming 4K TV that really looks like a picture frame. When not in use, it enters “Art Mode”, cycling through 100 4K resolution artworks. It also adjusts to ambient light and has a variety of magnetic snap-on bezels.
It’s not as thin as LG’s wallpaper TV, but Sony’s upcoming A1E is a sight to behold as well. It’s also rocking an OLED display for excellent blacks and viewing angles. It has a kickstand that also houses its guts, keeping the display itself thin and nearly borderless.
LG’s new “wallpaper” TV gets its moniker from the fact that its OLED panel is just 0.1″ thick – it’s so thin it can only be wall-mounted. All of its ports and other electronics are integrated into a Dolby Atmos 4.2 soundbar, connected by a skinny ribbon cable. Available in 65″ or 75″.
