LG thinks you want to take a suitcase screen to the beach

    I don’t know about this one LG. I’m normally the guy who wants more pixels in more places with screens in more places offering more opportunities for education, information and entertainment. LG’s latest creation may have taken that just a little too far.

    LG Electronics has announced the global rollout of its Lifestyle Screen. The LG StanbyME Go (27LX5) is a 27″ touchscreen display that includes an integrated speaker system cleverly built into a stylish suitcase.

    This is a pretty strange product, but the press images showing it at the beach really had me scratching my head, is that seriously something people would do? This seems like a recipe for disaster. If it works out well, LG expects this to provide memorable entertainment experiences wherever you go.

    Perfect for streaming movies, playing games and more, the StanbyME Go offers take-anywhere convenience, with the carry case, built-in battery and screen protection.  In addition to the large display and robust speakers of the new LG Lifestyle Screen, the carry case includes safe storage for the product’s streamlined remote control and power cable.

    StanbyME Go complements its portability with versatile adjustability that supports a range of different uses and personal preferences. Users can tilt the screen to achieve the best viewing angle, rotate it 90 degrees from landscape to portrait and back, adjust its height by up to 18 centimetres, or put it in Table mode.

    When set to Table mode, the StanbyME Go screen lies flat in the lower part of the case, allowing users to play digital board games including chess and ‘Hidden Catch,’ or switch on the virtual record player for a fun, nostalgic listening experience. Conveniently, the StanbyME Go screen automatically turns on when its case is opened and turns off when it is closed.

    The StanbyME Go also offers proven durability, as shown by its successful completion of 11 tests compliant with the U.S. military’s rigorous MIL-STD-810G standard.

    For maximum viewing immersion, the built-in speakers of StanbyME Go automatically optimises audio output to the front of the screen. Viewing experiences are further enhanced through support for Dolby’s advanced video and sound technologies, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

    Equipped with the proprietary LG webOS smart TV platform, StanbyME Go lets users effortlessly connect to iOS or Android devices. Moreover, voice recognition makes it possible to launch apps, adjust sound and search for content completely hands-free – a helpful feature for those who like to cook, clean or take on other tasks or activities while they watch.

    The new Lifestyle Screen products from LG, present new ways to enjoy content and deliver lifestyle value for today’s consumers. LG StanbyME Go is set to launch globally, starting in the U.S. this month, with plans for global rollout to key markets in Europe including Italy, France, UK, Spain, Germany from next month.

    LG will be showcasing its latest lifestyle TVs, including StanbyME Go StanbyME, along with the LG OLED Objet Collection Posé, at its exhibition booth (Hall 18, Messe Berlin) at IFA 2023 in Berlin, Germany, from September 1-5.
