Media Convergence in the living room now has a new entry. Ikea. They have just announced they have designed a new piece of furniture with a TV included.The Uppleva is an LED HDTV with a built-in Blu-ray player and 2.1 sound system and speakers and a player installed right in the entertainment center into which the HDTV itself is built.

A wireless subwoofer lets users get stereo sound with notable bass without investing in a separate soundbar with a subwoofer. The attached entertainment center can hold additional devices like game systems and set-top boxes behind a cabinet door that lets remote control signals in, and all cables can thread up through the back of the entertainment center to stay hidden. It also has unspecified Smart TV functions, so expect some kind of TV App experience.

Basically it's as clean and sleek as one would expect from Scandi designers. NO MORE CLUTTER!

Customers can order the Uppleva in several different screen sizes and styles, and can customize everything from the color of the frame to the design of the home entertainment system into which the Uppleva is installed.


Swedish HDTV fans will be able to buy the Uppleva this fall from Ikea, with prices starting at 6,500 Swedish crowns ($960) according to Engadget. Availability in the United States hasn't yet been confirmed, but if it does come out here, a lot of college graduates will be able to pick up their first TV at the same store they pick up their first futon.
