Even though TVs have slimmed down significantly, there are still some things we can't do with them. They're thinner, which means viewable screens have become wider. But imagine what it would be like to roll up your 55" TV and take it with you.

That's one of the most exciting things LG has shown us at the 2016 CES show in Las Vegas. Tech-fanatics everywhere have been going crazy over this completely flexible screen, which rolls up without damaging the components that project the picture.

The screen being shown at CES is only an 18-inch screen, but the LG team has been quick to say that they're also developing screen sizes that are 55 inches, or more. The screen uses OLED technology to produce a picture quality of 1200x810 pixels. By using OLEDs, rather than regular LEDs, there is no longer a need for a back panel to light the screen. The O in OLED stands for "organic."

This could be the next big thing for TV technology, since it would give TVs more portability. Consumers would no longer be confined to watching videos in one location, wherever their TV was propped or mounted. Instead, they could store their TV, rolled up in the closet, then unroll it to watch content in any room.
