This revolutionary TV comes with its own 'invisibility cloak'

Whoa

Each week, we spotlight a cool innovation recommended by some of the industry's top tech writers. This week's pick is a TV that seamlessly blends into your wall.

"The worst part of buying a big television is no longer the price," said Mark Wilson at Fast Company. With flat screens now relatively affordable, the main grievance from consumers is the way the average 65-incher can dominate your living room wall, "like a black hole leaching away your own good taste." So designers at Samsung have come up with an unorthodox solution — "giving your TV its own invisibility cloak."

The Ambient Mode of Samsung's newly released 4K QLED screen allows the TV to blend right into your wall. Before you hang the TV, you snap a picture of the wall it's going to hang on — whether it's brick, patterned wallpaper, or just white paint. "Then the TV creates a chameleonic screen saver" that seamlessly blends into the background. The result is that "the TV more or less turns invisible."
