LG Display’s go-anywhere paper-thin speakers could be the future of audio

Good sound requires space, or at least I thought it did. Then LG Display Automotive gave me a preview at CES 2023 of a new kind of audio actuator that’s razor-thin, and can turn almost anything into a relatively robust speaker.

The Sound Solution with Thin Actuator looks more like something you rip off a notepad than a device that can generate sound. A thin, copper cable snaking off one end, though, is a giveaway.

Measuring just 12cm x 6cm x 0.3mm thin (and weighing 12 grams), the actuator is designed to go behind screens or really be embedded almost anywhere.
