LG Korea has announced the LG StanbyME Go 27LX5, a portable display that's built inside a travelling case.
This somewhat bizarre product features a 27-inch 1080p touchscreen display along with speakers and battery inside what clearly looks like a briefcase. The display can be tilted up to 90 degrees, rotated clockwise to 90 degrees, and adjusted in height within an 18-centimeter range. Users can choose horizontal or vertical orientation or utilize it in table mode. The display also supports Dolby Vision.
To go along with the display you also get a set of 20W speakers that adapt to the angle of the display. The speakers also have support for Dolby Atmos content.
The display runs on LG's webOS platform found on the company's televisions, and allows the user to beam content from an iOS or Android device using AirPlay and screen mirroring. An HDMI port is also provided for connecting via a cable. There is also voice recognition support for hands-free operation.
LG claims the case has passed 11 U.S. Department of Defense durability tests, ensuring its resilience against low pressure, high temperature, low temperature, dust, vibration, salt spray, shock, and drop. Opening or closing the case lid also turns the display on and off.
The display includes a battery that can provide up to three hours of usage without external power. The case also holds the remote control as well as the power cable.
The LG StanbyME Go is priced at 1.17 million won (~$885) and will be available starting July 7th through online and offline channels.
This is surely a perfect design. Can sneak entertainment into workplace and airport.
The press attention and comments this is getting in Korea is extremely positive and expecting sell outs in the home market. Might not make much sense in international markets but in Eastern Asian countries this is anticipated to be a high end must ha...
