Inside LG's Inner Sanctum: the past, present and future of its displays

We take you behind the scenes of the Korean giant's growth

We got the chance to sneak a peek behind LG's display front at its Paju location in South Korea, and because there's no one else we'd rather enjoy gawking shamelessly at display technology with, we take you with us.

Humble beginnings

When founder Koo In-Hwoi started LG, its very first products were toothpaste and face cream. 

Those were the days

Remember when televisions looked like this? No? Us neither.

And so it begins

These old things? Just a few of LG's game-changing accomplishments in the display arena. 

Risky business

And here's the Paju plant in all its miniature model-ly glory. That thin orange line you see across the top? That marks the border between North and South Korea. There's much to be said for a company gutsy enough to live life on the edge. 

We finally meet

Remember this 105-in overgrown baby? Revealed at this year's CES, it's packing all kinds of firsts - curvature, size, and of course that eyesight-challenging UHD resolution. It's every bit as beautiful as they said it would be. 

More after the break...

Same but different

Don't take that brilliance for granted, thank display technology today. 

Look ma, no glasses!

Where do we go from here? The future looks like it could be free of those dorky 3D glasses.

I'll fold

Bendable displays, foldable ones, it doesn't matter as long as it shows you how design can go beyond plain original flatness. 

You're so transparent

If flexibility isn't your thing, how do transparent displays sound? Have them display weather information in place of your windows or recipes on your fridge, and have the option of interacting with them too, since you know, we have the urge to touch everything now thanks to touchscreen technology.

Tunnel into this videoscape

Behold the excitement of tech journalists in a wall to ceiling display of 3D screens. If LG can do this, they can do anything. We look forward to a future plastered head-to-toe in 3D UHD displays.
