Hardware, Embedded Systems "IKEA introduces UPPLEVA, a completely new range that integrates smart TV and sound system with furniture. UPPLEVA brings beauty and functionality to the living room, solving the problem of cable clutter and miss-match between TV and furniture." I'm throwing money at my screen but nothing is happening.

This is "innovative"?

Soooo, it's a TV stand that includes the TV builtin, meaning you can't adjust anything, or swap your TV to another stand, or change anything in your livingroom without buying another complete TV-stand+TV?

Don't want cable clutter and whatnot? Get a TV stand that includes channels for the cables, and has doors on the front to hide everything behind. You know, the same as this thing does. Except now you have the flexibility of choosing your TV, optical, cable, console, audio systems separately.

IKEA has some great ideas. This isn't one of them.
