LG Electronics has turned a pop-up retro gaming parlor into a modern gaming experience using its organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays.
The Goldstar Arcade in Seoungsu-dong, Korea, is set in the heart of an industrial area filled with abandoned warehouses and factories. The area has been turned into a hot spot for young people with cafes, fashion concept stores and other shops.
Goldstar Arcade will be open until Dec. 19 and combines retro and modern sensibilities to deliver a variety of new experiences including the OLED Gaming Zone, where old-school game classic and new console titles can be played on OLED TVs.
The arcade includes the Self-Lit Tunnel, an area of self-illuminating pixels that give OLED TVs vibrant colors, deep black and contrast. Visitors pass through the tunnel to get to the OLED Gaming Zone where games can be played on 10 OLED TVs installed there. Additionally, there are three 48 inch OLED TVs that are connected so people can participate in racing games.
