We’ve seen how curved displays can be used for phones, for TVs, for monitors, but what if they could be used for other things too? That’s something that LG will be demonstrating at CES 2022, and in an announcement by the company, they have given us a bit of a sneak peek into their plans.
This comes in the form of two concept display solutions, one of which is called the Virtual Ride. This is essentially a stationary bike, which we know can be boring as hell, but what LG has done is used three vertical OLED screens, to form a giant screen that stretches over the top of your head. This helps create an immersive scenario where you’re cycling and the display changes accordingly.
Since the displays start from the bottom and go all the way to the top, with the topmost display featuring a 500R curvature, the idea is that it will make it feel like you’re really outdoors, instead of pedaling away in your bedroom.
The other is called the Media Chair which features a recliner that has a 55-inch OLED TV with a 1,500R curvature. As you can see in the photo, the choice of the display and its curvature helps to create a more cinematic-like experience compared to regular TVs and your sofa. It can even switch back and forth between portrait and landscape orientation.
However, keep in mind that these are concepts and not products that can be purchased. It is also a good way for LG to demonstrate how flexible and curved displays can be used in more futuristic concepts.
