A wooden TV--who needs it?

LG apparentlly nearing the market with a wood-cased plasma

Months after our mates at Crave UK got the scoop on its plans, LG is apparently ready to debut a wooden plasma TV. Akihabara News says the company will release a 60-inch model with wood casing on the Korean market in March.

But before you fly to Seoul for bragging rights, be aware that wooden plasmas have been available in Sweden for some time already. If you really want to make a statement, save a tree and get a "Yalos Diamond" LCD for only $130,000 .
