LG announces world's first transparent OLED display

LG unveiled the world's inaugural transparent OLED display at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Named LG Signature OLED T, this smart TV features a glass display that achieves transparency, creating the illusion of images floating in the air akin to faux holograms.

The television incorporates transparent OLED panels alongside wireless audio and video transmission technology. Employing a 77-inch transparent display, LG asserts that it becomes "practically invisible" when turned off. The TV is accompanied by a Zero Connect Box facilitating wireless transmission of video and audio to the TV.

It offers flexibility in placement, whether against a wall, positioned centrally, or mounted on the wall. LG emphasizes that the display seamlessly integrates with its surroundings, allowing placement "in the middle of the room to become a divider or prop it against the window without blocking the view outside."

During periods of inactivity for content viewing, the TV can showcase artwork, videos, or photos through an Always-On-Display feature. It also includes a "T-Bar" for displaying news alerts, weather updates, or other information in a ticker format along the lower part of the screen.

Equipped with LG's Alpha 11 AI processor, the TV boasts a 70 percent increase in graphic performance and up to 30 percent higher processing speed compared to the previous generation.

The global release of LG Signature OLED T is scheduled for later this year. However, LG's announcements didn't stop there; they also introduced a smart home AI robot named Smart Home AI Agent. 

Sporting a two-wheeled design for unhindered home navigation, it can engage in verbal interactions and express emotions through articulated leg joints. The robot features built-in multi-modal technology, enabling voice and image recognition along with natural language processing.

Functioning as a mobile smart home hub, the robot allows users to control connected appliances and Internet of Things (IoT) enabled devices. Equipped with a camera, speakers, and an array of sensors, it gathers real-time environmental data such as temperature, humidity, and air quality.

LG envisions the robot serving various roles, including that of a pet or security guard. It can automatically patrol homes in the absence of occupants, monitor pets, and send alerts in case of any unusual activity.
