Holy active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes, Batman -- we just saw LG's 15-inch Object AMOLED TV in the flesh, and with a screen depth of just 3mm (0.1-inches) it's almost two-dimensional. It also weighs just 320g.
Pictures on the 720p screen were stunning, with vivid, lifelike colours unlike anything you'll see in even the greatest LCD or plasma television today. This is typical of the extortionately expensive AMOLED technology that's bottlenecking screen sizes in the mid-teens of inches.
Admittedly it's larger than Sony's 11-inch XEL-1, which we first eyeballed back at the start of 2008, but it's still a midget by today's television standards. For this reason, combined with its expectedly high cost, it'll be a product confined to the marble-topped kitchens and bathrooms of the enormously wealthy gadget connoisseurs of the world.
But it's one of the largest production models we've yet seen, which is a sure sign that the technology is progressing, albeit slowly. Check out some extra photos over the page to really get a feel for how insanely thin this thing is while we wait for UK pricing and release date details to be announced.
