Television’s have come on leaps and bounds over the last 30 or so years, with significant developments in size, quality and interactivity. With all the big brands, Sony, LG, Samsung, pushing the boundaries in technology, a certain Swedish company have decided to take a different route. IKEA have launched the Uppleva, not just a television, it’s a full media centre. A 1080p HD TV, a blu-ray player, surround sound; all built into intelligently designed storage space. Unsightly wires are tucked away out of site, because all four elements are built as one, seamlessly together.
This is uncharted territory for IKEA, never having launched a television before, let alone a whole new way of approaching home entertainment. Personally, I really like the idea. The aesthetic fits into what I would regard the young, modern family environment; and is bound to be a talking point in the household.
