We've seen plenty of developments in portable tech in recent years. LG's latest reveal is maybe one of the most surprising but also most obvious – it's putting a 27in touchscreen display inside a briefcase.

Yep, that might sound weird. Most portable tech now focuses on being small enough not to require its own luggage allowance.
