I’ve been following CES for years and I dislike the unnecessary importance given to big tech brands. I don’t have a problem with LG, Samsung, or Sony launching ground innovations at the biggest tech show on Earth, but I do feel for small and medium enterprises who don’t get the attention and due credit they deserve for their impeccable contribution to the world of consumer technology.
Displace TV is one such in-home entertainment startup and maker of the first truly wireless TV that has no wires, no ports, and is run by hot-swappable batteries. So, how does it stream media? Engadget says this is possible because of a base station that comes with the device and performs the rendering. Tom’s Guide reports that ‘the current base unit that broadcasts the wireless signal to the Displace TV uses Wi-Fi 6E, but that may be upgraded to Wi-Fi 7 by the time this set ships in late 2023.’
Labeled as the world’s first truly wireless TV, the 55-inch OLED screen is all the rage this year. It actually gives you the option to watch your favorite shows from the comfort of a bathtub or even on a balcony. I am not sure how weatherproof this TV is or whether it can handle a little outside moisture, but if Displace works on making water-repellant screens, this could very well disrupt the business of other televisions in the market.
The company mentions that the wireless TV is powered by a battery and operated by voice and gesture. The television weighs less than 20 pounds, making it easy for users to carry it around. As aforementioned, the self-contained screen doesn’t need any peripherals, external boxes, or plug-ins. The company even touts that its battery can last for 30 days on one charge.

But that’s not even the best part; the television secures to any surface, be it a window or a wall, courtesy of a proprietary active-loop vacuum system. In a nutshell, the 55-inch Displace TV delivers 4K resolution with an OLED screen, AMD processor, and NVIDIA GPU. If the marketing team takes the right direction, who knows it could be a major player in the television entertainment industry.
