Philips Turns Pane of Glass Into a 3D TV
Philips has launched a new line of TVs called DesignLine, and they're definitely very different from most other TVs on the market.
Aiming to create an "object of desire" rather than just another TV, Philips' designers have created a TV that looks like a seamless sheet of glass with a black gradient.
And when we say "seamless," we mean it: there is no stand, no visible frame (when the TV is off), and the TV is meant to simply be leaned against the wall.
We're a bit worried what effect will the inevitable cabling have on the visual impression of the device, but even with that in mind the Philips DesignLine TV will give a dash of glamour to almost any ambiance.
On the tech side of things, the DesignLine TV supports 1080p 3D, 1400 Hz "Perfect Motion" refresh rate, and comes with Wi-Fi as well as a remote with a built-in keyboard and pointer.
The device also boasts Philips' Ambilight technology which projects light that matches the color of on-screen content onto the wall behind it.
The DesignLine TVs will come in 46'' and 55'' screen size, and will be available in Europe and Russia in Q2 2013.
