A novelty for all those who have a ... green LED thumb.
Lily was designed as part of the LG Display OLED Go competition, which aims to find virtual and real applications in next-generation displays.
In this case, it is a decorative object developed with transparent OLED technology.
Flowers in 4k of a beauty never seen before. Also because they are virtual.
This concept design was inspired by the clear view of permeable screen technology. Lily is a customizable pot, to be placed in areas not exposed to sunlight or in a place not suitable for growing some plants. It basically displays virtual flowers to add some color to your workstation.
Sinan Anayurt, the designer behind the device, explains that Lily doesn't need specific requirements. She is aimed at all users who wish to add virtual plants as a decoration, without having to worry about looking after plants "in the ground and leaves".
You can customize the color, and you can view your favorite plants via the app. Forget the perfume, which you can add to the limit with an air freshener (virtual perfumes do not exist yet. virtual tastes... almost).
The type of device and the very low consumption of the always active display allow you to see these beautiful flowers even at night.
Virtual flowers: did we need them?
I find it hard not to say "but wasn't a succulent plant better? It requires little care, is real and contributes to the environment!" but I also understand the experimental nature of this object.
Of course, thinking about a future full of vases containing only virtual flowers makes me a little depressed.
