Here's a Closer Look at the Ikea TV That Shows It's Even More Awesome

The nice thing about the upcoming Ikea TV, other than being smart and cheap, is that it blends the television into your furniture to completely banish unsightly cables from your living room. Here's how it would look like in a "real life" setting.


That "real life" setting is of course, a mock Ikea store but in the video, you get to see the Ikea TV and all its different versions be customized to the room. Ikea shows off the UPPLEVA TV's sliding remote, the integration of Blu-ray players and set top boxes within the furniture, how the cables can be cleverly hidden from view and how people react to the big box. It's the cleanest TV solution for a very affordable price (around $950). [YouTube via GigaOM]
