Samsung’s New QLED Line of TVs Go Invisible

A new “ambient mode” on Samsung’s latest QLED line of 4K TVs helps the device to disappear, or at least blend in better with its natural surroundings. The process is quite simple: take a picture of the spot the TV will hang on and upload this as the TV’s background. The appearance is that of a black frame floating on the wall. To intensify the sensation, Samsung also incorporated a digital version of the shadow the frame would make it were in fact just hanging on the wall, empty. It’s quite an uncanny experience though it’s bound to cost quite a bit when the five TVs hit the market.
