CES is a mecca for experimental concepts that redefine what's capable in today's high-end tech. In the past, we've seen foldable and rollable displays from the likes of LG, and now we're about to see a completely wireless TV. The unit will be shown off formally on January 5, but a show model was spotted by tech influencer Vincent Tech on Twitter.

The new tech comes from Displace, a startup who plans to change television as we know it with the company's self-powered and portable 4K OLED TV. The wireless TV features a 55-inch 4K OLED LG display and has no built-in ports--no HDMI, USB, antennae, etc--or cables, and is powered by batteries that can be hot swapped in and out of the unit's back panel.

Batteries are expected to last up to 180 hours on a single charge, offering "about a month" of charge with 6 hours of viewing a day. The device is completely wireless but it still requires a separate "base unit" box to be plugged into an electrical socket.

Media is served to the device remotely via a Wi-Fi module at the top of the display in a Plex-style local streaming setup.

The Displace wireless TV may also be game and app ready, and could better support services like GeForce Now and Xbox Cloud Gaming with its built-in AMD CPU and NVIDIA GPU. The specifications of these built-in chips were not outlined by the company so we don't know how much processing power the device is packing.

Apart from the battery-powered setup, the other unique aspect of the display is how it can stick to any wall. The panel has proprietary vacuum-sealing technology that allows the panel to literally attach itself to surfaces. VESA mounts, brackets, or arms are not needed, Displace says.

There's also no remote control. The Displace TV is controlled via movements and gestures thanks to a built-in camera system.

"Displace TVs are primarily controlled by natural hand gesture movements, in addition to touch and voice interfaces, making it easy to browse, play and control content using hands. They also utilize facial recognition and computer vision technology, which enables content on Displace TVs to seamlessly switch between rooms when users move."
