We love OLED technology here at Inhabitat – for years it has been heralded as the next stage in energy-efficient displays, as OLED screens generate their own light, eliminating the need for backlighting. So far we’ve seen small-scale applications of the technology in everything from laptops to mobile phones, however Korean electronic company LG is aiming big with plans to create the world’s largest OLED display unit – a massive 55 inch television.

LG announced that they will unveil the world’s largest OLED TV in just a few weeks at CES 2012 – and they say it will show the brightest, sharpest and biggest images ever seen on a commercial screen. The TV will also show off another benefit of OLED technology – an extremely thin screen. Since OLED sets generate their own light, the panels can be shrunk down to a mere 5mm thin.

Of course, technology this slick doesn’t come cheap. While there is no word on how much the 55-inch screen will cost, a 15-inch OLED screen from LG was priced at $3,000 – just think how much the world’s largest will cost. Unless you are a Saudi sheikh, I think you can cross it off your birthday wish list.

    It would also be nice to know how long they expect the OLEDs to last. Many people would be willing to pay the added price, if they can hope it will last more than 2-3 years.
