Giant screens. Rollable screens. The top of the box holds a narrow rectangular, the only hint that the base is more than what it seems.

On Monday, LG announced in a press release that it demoed the LG Signature OLED TV R (model 65R9) at CES 2019. The South Korean company first showcased a prototype, a rollable OLED TV at last year's CES. LG says the screen can roll up and roll down for about 50,000 times without causing any damage.

The OLED panel has a window-blind like back that is able to fold into a cylinder within the base. Still, the set sounds like it impressed the folks at CNET, and could be the first step toward what your future living room could look like.

The OLED TV R goes further with its rollable screen that simply disappears into the stand.

When Rashida Tlaib was sworn into Congress on Thursday, her election had already made history - and there, in the U.S. Capitol, her attire followed suit. "People love you and you win", the video showed Tlaib telling supporters.

The rollable OLED TV is 4K, but LG is still making the jump to 8K with two new, inflexible TVs.

LG's has unveiled a new TV which can be rolled up to store away or viewed at a range of angles.

LG hasn't disclosed a price or debut date for the LG Signature OLED TV R yet, however, there's more information on the company's website here on specs and other key features. The new TV is equipped with LG's second generation of Alpha 9 intelligent processor and deep learning algorithm for a stunning AI picture and sound quality. LG is also including the very latest version of WebOS, something that will include support for Amazon Alexa, with LG also adding in Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit integration. With that said, even when the panel is out of sight, users can still listen to music and other audio content from the TV's 4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system.
