This is how LG’s transparent displays could be used in the real world

Date:7 January 2021 Author: Kyro Mitchell

LG has been in the business of making OLED displays for quite some time now, with its panels being used by the likes of Vizio, Sony, Panasonic, Hisense, and Toshiba. Now, it looks as though LG has added a new transparent OLED display to its catalogue and also provided examples of how they could be used.

Transparent displays in restaurants 

One of the examples provided by LG of how the transparent OLED displays can be used includes placing them inside a sushi bar, where the display pops up between the customer and waiter. This will allow the customer to see the different menu options while also being able to see and interact with the waiter.

Transparent displays in your bedroom

The second example LG provided sees the transparent display being incorporated directly into the frame of your bed at home. With a simple press of a button, the transparent OLED screen rises from the foot of the bed to display your favourite TV show or any other information you’re interested in seeing. The display will also act as a speaker, so there is no need to clutter bedroom space with external speakers.

Transparent displays to replace windows

The final example of how LG’s transparent display could be used is possibly the most interesting. LG has suggested the displays could be used as windows on trains. Using a transparent display in place of a regular window means passengers could easily get information on things like route information, weather, news, and maps, while still being able to enjoy the scenery of the outside world.


LG will demonstrate its cutting-edge products, including the transparent display, online at CES 2021 where all general visitors can enjoy them for the first time, which is scheduled to virtually take place from January 6 to 9, 2021.
