    Patti Deni wanted to surprise her teenage son by giving him his own big-screen TV, so while their new home was being built, she contacted Williamsville, NY–based Stereo Advantage with an idea: Instead of mounting the set to the wall, like everyone else does, she suggested having the TV laid flush across the ceiling.

    “It was definitely a first for us,” says systems designer Kevin Bohner.

    A 98-inch StarGlas60 display from Stewart Filmscreen was chosen for the unusual project.

    “Because it’s so big and has such a wide viewing angle, Patty’s son wouldn’t have to lay flat on his back necessary to see the screen,” Bohner explains.

    “He and his friends can prop themselves just about anywhere and get a good view,” adds Patty.

    In order to support the weight of the display, plus the NEC video projector and the specialty Draper projection mirrors positioned behind it (a total weight of more than 300 pounds), the ceiling had to be reframed and reinforced.

    Also, wiring had to be installed to tie the teen’s gaming consoles, laptop computer and cable box to the rear-projection assembly.

    Although her son spends plenty of time gaming, Patty says that viewing and editing his own videos is probably her son’s favorite big-screen application—about the only thing that’s typical in this totally unconventional viewing environment.



    Even though this sounds awesome, this sounds partially awkward. I still want one

    It would be so hard not to sound spoiled in this situation.
    Why do parents do goofy and expensive things and then expect everyone to be overjoyed just because it was for you

    Wouldn't it be better just to mount it into the wall instead of the ceiling?

    Why not just put it in the wall?

    this is why women shouldn't design things.

    You're only one person, there's no reason to have a bigger bed.

    There's even a perfectly good wall right there that could've been used.

    the projector alone costs 6000 dollars, plus the 98 inch screen, sound system, and framing, they really must be loaded.

    Yeah, just saying though, you'd expect to get a bigger bed if your parents are so loaded as to spend 6k+ on you.



    Personally I'm glad I'm not that kid, look at that shitty interior decorating, that kids going to be messed up later in life.

    That is quite a badass television.

    Though it looks like it's above the foot of his bed. Wouldn't that make it annoying as hell to watch?

    Knowing the shitty design of the interior it's likely not.

    That would be awesome above a shower, in some steam eliminating box so you could see it. Watch porn while laying down in the show, wanking.
