    Samsung TV rolls-up into a central vertical column rather than a horizontal base.

    Yeah don't see the 'logic' in doing a TV this way, it will still up just as much space as a normal tv. I can see it working on a hand held device though (we were knocking out concepts like this 20-30 years ago)....

    A TV needs to unroll vertically like the LG one does so it can be mounted in the ceiling or take up a small amount of space on a sideboard and allow it to roll up in front of a picture on the wall or something.

    I can see the appeal of a roll-away TV, though I agree with the other "ceiling down" comments. But .... does it compromise screen quality, or reliability/longevity, and what does it do to price?

    If it can pass those tests, then it may well be the way TVs will all be in x-years time, but personally it isn't something that would make me go out and buy a new TV. When my existing set packs up, and I'm buying anyway, then subject to the above, it might be a determining factor

    I do, generally, like the idea of a hidden TV that is there when you want it, and doesn't burden the room with a huge black lump of glass when I don't want it.

    It could be a sign of things to come possibly even roll-out horizontally, which overcomes the need for mounting frames, running leads snd power, etc, in the ceiling. IF they csn overcome those reservations.

    'Wallpaper' TVs like LG's makes more sense to me than this. The market need for a roll-up TV is going to be very very limited.

    item 401 and distance A1
    Rolled up it works as a phone. Going to need a notional screen on it.
    pulling it open and it snapping rigid, that's going to be the winner.

    oh its a TV.

    Blah.

    Depends on personal taste,, I guess.

    My ideal TV is one that's completely invisible, or hidden, until I want it. I find even those "wallpaper" TVs tend to ....dominate .... a room, to be or be in a major focal point. A TV should be like a really good butler .... invisible when you don't need it, and immediately to hand when you do.

    Maybe I'm part of that very, very limited market but to me, a big TV is an eyesore, not some kind of status symbol. So, the physically smaller it is, the more unobtrusive and therefore the more I like it.
