The LG Signature R (Roll up TV) not only looks amazing and sounds incredible, it also happens to solve one of the biggest problems of modern TVs

The LG Signature R not only looks amazing and sounds incredible, it also happens to solve one of the biggest problems of modern TVs. Its ugly when its not on. Now Firgelli has historically solved this problem by offering TV Lift Mechanisms that allow you to hide your TV inside a cabinet or in the ceiling or floor etc, whereby you press a button on the Remote Control and the TV lifts up or down into view. However LG have now soled the same problem with a TV that Rolls up inside a small box. Initially costing around $20,000 these units are sure to come down in price over the next 10 years or so.

This is the new LG Signature R. The “R” stands for its rollable TV screen, a 3-millimeter OLED panel that rises from a thin rectangular volume at its base. It’s a technical marvel, but it also solves a big problem with televisions: they tend to be eyesores when they’re off.

TVs have been dramatically increasing in size and quality–all while dropping in price–since they were invented, but especially in the past decade. Nowadays you can get a 65-inch 4K monster that will offer great image quality for under $1,000. But even the most advanced models still turn into an ugly, dead surface when you’re not using them. It doesn’t matter where you put them–they look terrible. Even if you hang them, and go to the trouble of hiding the cables under the wall, the immense black mirror surface can ruin a room. And no, screen savers that display museum paintings aren’t the answer (those are arguably worse, like fake wood paneling).

But that changes with LG’s new rollable TV. This was released at the 2019 Las Vegas CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Rather than having to devote space to the screen somewhere in your living room, the display panel simply emerges from a discrete but pretty silver aluminum box that also houses the audio system. When you need the TV, just turn it on and it quickly unrolls right in front of you. Turn it off and it disappears. No more dead screen ugliness in your living room. When the TV is raised it looks just like a regular TV. 

 Unfortunately at the price point of around $20,000 these units are still far from been affordable to the average family household. Until then we may suggest using a Firgelli TV Lift mechanism to hide your current TV in a cabinet, or the Ceiling or floor.
