The company has just teased its new 55-inch transparent OLED display in a future sushi bar, where restaurant goers would be browsing the menu or even watching videos on the transparent OLED. Not only that, but you could watch the chefs themselves preparing your meal behind it as it rocks a hygienic partition -- thanks, COVID -- and 40% transparency.

A transparent LCD on the other hand, would have just 10% transparency -- showing how good OLED is in comparison with 40% transparency in its current state. The new transparent OLED wouldn't just have a place in the restaurants of the future, but also at the end of a "smart bed" according to LG.

LG sees a future where people would have a transparent OLED at the end of their bed, something that would display information, notifications, videos and more -- but doesn't block the view from the end of your bed. LG has built in speakers into the body called "Cinematic Sound OLED" or CSO.

LG's new transparent OLED TV can be put away by pressing a simple body, where it will disappear -- but not all of it, into its main body. A tiny part of the transparent OLED stays up, showing you notifications and information like the weather, time, and more.
