Following its stretchy LCD panels, LG Show’s newest gadget is a super-thin speaker designed to be put in in automobile interiors whereas remaining “invisible.” The Skinny Actuator Sound Resolution was developed with a “world audio firm” (LG did not say which), as a substitute for conventional audio system in vehicles.
The system eschews the standard voice coils, cones and magnets present in most audio system, as a substitute using so-called film-like exciter expertise. That may vibrate off show panels and numerous supplies contained in the automobile physique to allow a “wealthy, 3D immersive sound expertise,” in keeping with the corporate.
With the panels’ small dimensions (5.9 x 3.5 inches and only a tenth of an inch thick) and 1.4 ounce weight, they are often hidden inside automobile inside elements just like the dashboard, headliner, pillar, and headrests. That frees up areas usually occupied by audio system “with out compromising sound high quality,” in keeping with LG.
The idea is not fully new, as we have seen comparable vibrating panels utilized in OLED TVs from Sony and LG itself. Nevertheless, automobile interiors are a brand new utility with considerable advantages, if LG Show’s claims about sound high quality are correct. We could discover out for ourselves quickly, as LG is because of present the expertise off at CES 2023 (yep, it is proper across the nook).
