Which in my case is only a wall, however with considered one of these shows, I suppose I’ve an incentive to adorn the wall behind the TV?
Jokes apart, LG Show’s transparent OLEDs are most likely greatest suited to shops, galleries, and different areas the place they’ll sit in the midst of the house with out being overly obtrusive.
