We’re less than two weeks away from CES 2022, but some companies simply can’t help themselves and are already teasing what they’ll bring to the show. LG might have something special on its hands with its absurd answer to the equally ridiculous question: what if someone stuck best gaming monitor onto best gaming chair?
Introducing the LG Media Chair, a reclining seat that comes with a flexible 55-inch LG OLED TV built-in to the curved frame. The screen features a 1,500R curve and Cinematic Sound OLED tech that vibrates the display’s glass to create sound rather than relying on a set of speakers.
As you might expect, the chair isn’t ordinary, either. At the touch of a button on the armrest, you can switch the display between a horizontal and vertical orientation. Combine this with the ability to rotate the screen in tandem with the chair so it’s always eye-level, and you have an even deeper immersion that could genuinely be one of the best ways to experience classic arcade rail shooters, driving games, and flight simulators.
