LG has released a TV that is worth $100,000. How and why a TV would or could ever cost that much might sound ridiculous, but this TV is unlike any that have ever come before it. That is due to one important aspect, the TV has a rolling feature. Meaning that the TV rolls in and out of a box, like a glorified projector. The box that the TV rests in, is also a sound system. That’s already a crazy enough distinction.

Think about being in grade school and your teacher coming into the classroom and breaking out that old projector and rolling down the white backdrop. Well, this is a far more refined version of that. This TV rolls back into the sound system box and rolls out when needed. What makes this so strange, is the TV is 4K capable and looks to be as strong as current TVs. The standard is starting to turn into 8K, but the fact that this TV rolls into itself and still provides 4K quality picture is insane. One would think that a rolling TV wouldn’t be capable of such high definition.

The TV comes standard with Dolby Sound and Cinema quality functionality. The box itself is a sound bar sound system that offers surround sound as well. That might lead to more understanding why this TV is so expensive. A good sound bar doesn’t come cheap, and this TV is built into one. From the looks of it, this massive sound bar might put out some incredible sound. Especially considering it is boasting Dolby capabilities.
The LG Signature OLED R comes 65” standard, complete with a state-of-the-art sound system in which the TV rolls into after usage, and is available via custom order. No idea if that means that each one of these TVs can be altered to fit customer preference, but it sounds that way. With such a high price tag, customers might want to ditch certain features if possible.
Some specs and features for this TV are 4K Ultra HD resolution, four HDMI ports, a9 Gen 4 AI Processsor 4K, 120Hz native refersh rate, Dolby Vision, Google and Alexa built-in, LG ThinkQ AI.
This TV sure sounds jam packed with tons of features that technology fans want, but the $100,000 price tag still sounds insane. This state-of-the-art sound system might be one of the biggest reasons for that, and well, it can roll down when not needed. Based on the videos, this TV can also remain somewhat rolled to portray the weather and time. That might sound silly, but for a TV to remain partially unrolled is highly impressive.
The high price tag of $100,000 is crazy in that some luxury sports cars don’t even cost that much. Take the Dodge Viper SRT for instance. That beautiful piece of machinery usually costs around $80,000.
Bottom line, this TV is super convenient and highly futuristic. If you had the money for such a TV, would you buy it? Let us know in the comments!
