Ikea Introduces Smart TV

Swedish semi-disposable furniture retailer Ikea has introduced a new smart TV. It's called the "Uppleva," a word unpronounceable in human language, and meant as a cross between a television and a piece of furniture.

The internet-compatible Uppleva features a built in Blu-Ray and DVD player, FM radio, MP3 input, hidden speakers and a wireless sub-woofer. Everything can be operated from a single remote control, and the whole shebang is absent of visible wires and other television-related eyesores. All that's missing is a built in game system, although there is extra space for a PS3 and 360.

It comes in three screen sizes, and prices will start around $960, but you'll be able to add expense if you'd like to customize it a bit. Sadly, it's not going to be available in the U.S. until 2013.

Check out Uppleva in the video below:
