Wikipedia describes an OLED as follows: "An organic light emitting diode (OLED), also organic electro luminescent device (OELD), is a light-emitting diode (LED) whose emissive electroluminescent layer is composed of a film of organic compounds". Well, first and foremost, there's something called Modular microLED.

Hisense's Laser TV projector can produce a 140-inch display on a smaller budget, and will cost $US9,999 when it's released in America.

It's that time of the year: This week is the Consumer Electronics Show, the biggest tech expo in the U.S. nearly two hundred thousand people have descended on a surprisingly rainy Las Vegas for the show, among them Geared Up co-host Andru Edwards.

Here's a look at some of the flashiest TVs at CES this year.

LG announced upgrades to its current line up of OLED and Nano Cell TVs. Furthermore, just as is the case with OLED, the pixels (any one of several million of them inside a micro LED 4K TV bar) can turn off or on completely on an individual basis for ideal scene dimming and bright highlights. In other words, the TV is comprised of smaller display components that can be added or removed to achieve the desired size. And doing so won't compromise the display's quality, according to Samsung.

The other really unusual technology was Samsung's MicroLED technology.

Samsung claims that "The Wall" has incredible definition, without restrictions to size, resolution or form. When will the TV be available at what price? The South Korean company also unveiled its 88-inch 8K OLED display with 3.1 channel sound that would be the world's first 88-inch panel to sport 8K resolution, taking on Samsung's. "The addition of a voice assistant provides an answer to an actual consumer problem". In other words, aside from its ridiculous size, The Wall is as close to the ideal new TV as we've seen so far from any brand.

Secondly, you can adjust the height of the TV for certain types of content - mostly movies - that aren't filmed in the typical 16:9 aspect ratio of most TVs.

The 65-inch Rollable 4K display takes advantage of flexible OLED panel technology to enable the screen to be rolled up and hidden inside its rectangular base through the press of a button.
