LG wowed crowds with its transparent OLED television. While it’s not the first time the company has shown off this technology, the OLED T marks the first set that will actually go on sale later this year.
Spend some time with the OLED T, and you’ll inevitably be impressed. When it’s off, it looks like a large piece of tinted glass, allowing you to see through it. LG projected a digital fish tank, letting fish swim around as you look through the display. When you want to watch a movie or show, a black film shoots up behind it, giving you an opaque background.
Aside from the power cable, it’s also completely wireless, with all external devices like video game consoles or DVRs plugged into a Zero Connect box that beams everything to the TV using a proprietary wireless technology.
It’s the prototypical CES announcement — a product that you’re probably not going to buy for years, if that, but is nevertheless jaw-dropping to check out.
But if you were to buy it, just how much would it cost? LG didn’t offer any specific price tag, only that it would cost less than its rollable television, the OLED R. While it’s no longer available on LG’s site, the OLED R cost a cool $100,000.
So less than $100,000? I can’t wait to see it at Costco.
