“Rollable” TVs and Caregiver Robots are just two of the top 10 Korean technologies to watch out for in 2020, according to Seoulz.
Korea is a global innovation centre, ranking first on the Bloomberg Innovation Index between 2014-2019. With government support, Korean companies and startups have significantly invested in R&D efforts and talent to create new products and services.
For example, LG SIGNATURE has developed an ultra-thin rollable OLED display for their upcoming flatscreen TVs. Each screen can roll and unroll 50,000 times and fits within the TV speaker’s box.
The Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials’ Caregiver Robot works automatically to help support a patient’s upper and lower bodies during rehabilitation. It is expected to be in high demand in 2021, as Korea is currently experiencing a shortage of nurses and caregivers.
