Now you see it, now you don't

For those of you that don't want to stare at a blank screen when your TV is off, here is a classy new gadget that will transform your TV. The HideandChic from Media D├ęcor is a picture frame that you place around your wall-mounted flat-panel. With the push of a button, your choice of contemporary art will unroll, turning your blank screen into a piece of art.

If you think this sounds like a high-class decivce, just wait until you see the high-class price tag. You can expect to pay around $14,000 for one of these. With a price like that, I think I would find a way to bear actually having to look at my TV. (After all, isn't that what they're made for?)
