    The aspect ratio height change suggestion tends to be almost redundant to apply in the case of a TV because there are no unsightly bars one 21:9 movies because the pixels that aren't in use will just turn off because it's an OLED panel.

    LG'S OLED'S ARE STUNNING. I'VE HAD A CURVED 55" FOR OVER TWO YEARS AND I'M STILL THRILLED WITH IT.
    THIS SEEMS TO TAKE UP MORE SPACE THAN A STATIC TV. A CURVED SCREEN IS A LOT COOLER THAN A BOX WHEN IT'S OFF.

    I had thought the same thing about the aspect ratio. It would be great if it would shrink if the content is 21:9 and such.

    The only useful I can see this is to hide tv from toddlers and prevent them from breaking that very thin smart tv.

    it is a disadvantage if you need to switch on the tv urgently....

    Can’t wait for them to apply this to tablets and phones. So disappointed in Samsung right now for going foldable when they’re the ones that came up with the rollable idea in the first place...

    Whats the point of it? Its a large ass box that takes up space either on your floor or a shelf. It doesnt give the function that actual furniture does. It has no drawers, you cant really put much on top of it. Its just a large box, taking up space. It takes time to roll out. Its unnecessary mechanics that can break. Theres superthin wallpaper TVs that take up no space and can camoflauge itself into your wall when not used, no rollout time. So why use this? Its like trying to impress a 10 year old with unnecessary "cool" mechanics. Kinda what AUDI usually do with their cars. Having displays and AC units rolling out when the car turns on with unnecessary mechanics that take time when display and ac can just be out all the time.

    Hope they come out with an update for fixed aspect ratios to get rid of black bars on widescreen movies. That’d be the ultimate tv. No one else has done it yet. They did mention it tho.

    This is very cool, but a much more economical way to achieve the same functionality would simply to incorporate a regular TV in a center console with a motorized mechanism that raises & lowers it. The only downside is you wouldn't be able to achieve that cool floating look but that's it.

  • Benjamin Whitley
    Benjamin Whitley Month ago

    (2:04) No, that's dumb. The TV would sit below eye level, and OLEDs solve the problem of black bars because they already are true-black, which gives a superior viewing experience by blocking out any surrounding light. We've reached peak technology, where design and features are starting to backwards in the pursuit of trends and gimmicks.

    I don't understand by so many don't like the bars on movies. For me they don't hurt the movie experience at all and kinda makes it look more cinematic to me. Without them it's more like a TV movie ;)

    This would be good for people who want to place their TV in front of a window so that they can roll it down when they don't want to watch the TV so that the view is not obstructed and can roll it back up when they wish to watch.

    I'd love to see the box part made into a piece of furniture. For example, if the box was an ottoman/seat you could leave it at the end of your bed. Pop the screen up to watch telly, then pop it back down and sit on it at the end of your bed while you are getting changed and putting your shoes on. Alternatively, making the box into an entertainment unit would be pretty cool too
