LG are set to showcase the worlds first bending gaming monitors
That’s right you heard me LG are planning to showcase convertible monitors at CES 2021 (Consumer Electronics Show) which this year will be hosted strictly online. LG have designed a new display that can curl around to the desired radius for any player to create the most immersive gameplay experience. LG isn’t the only company having a go with this new tech, Intel have also been reported to have some “squishy” screens. With a price tag of $87,000 on LG’s “rollable” TV the price could be quite high for a fancy new bendable monitor.
If you’d like to have peak at these new innovative bendable screens CES 2021 will start on Jan 11th and run until Jan the 14th the whole show will be hosted entirely online so there won’t be any photos from Las Vegas where it is typically held. There is a very long list of exhibitors for the event, as well as a bunch of different platforms to view the show from so if you’d like more information click here.

Executive Producer and Announcer I’m a Game Design graduate who loves big and small creative experiences. I love to dive into the feelings of games as well as artistic elements that tell a compelling story. I don’t really have a favourite genre of game however I don’t really like horror games. Some of my favourite games of all time are: Detroit Become Human, Overwatch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I usually play PC, Nintendo Switch or PS4 and on the off occasion will test out some Android mobile games. You’ll usually find me announcing and producing the live show each week as well as out and about the local Brisbane Game Development scene.
