SOUTH KOREA - When it comes to TVs, thin is in. And it looks like the evolution of skinny TVs has reached its pinnacle. LG showed off a TV in South Korea that's the thinnest of them all -- a wallpaper display that's 55 inches wide but less than one millimeter thick.

At just four pounds, it's light enough to hang on the wall using magnets. Hey, maybe you can hang it on your fridge.

While this TV gets an “A” for its cool factor, it gets an “F" in availability.

This unveiling was part of LG's announcement that the future of TVs lies in OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology, which emits its own light for displays. That means TVs can be thinner or even curved.

But we're still a long way from OLED TVs being affordable. Right now, a 65-inch OLED TV costs $9,000.


LG says it expects this technology to take over within the next 5 to 10 years. But for TV lovers, it can't jump on the wall soon enough.
