Blow away the Joneses with a ceiling TV

Motorized mount can handle screens of more than 61 inches.

Chief Manufacturing

Once upon a time, just having a wall-mounted flat-panel TV was enough to make a huge impression by itself. Never satisfied, of course, showy consumers have since tried to one-up each other with plasmas and LCDs that lift from cabinets, hide behind mirrors, and pop up from the bed frame or even out from underneath it.

So what's left? The ceiling, of course.

The "Automated Ceiling Lift" from Chief Manufacturing "will make your TV like a drop-down projection screen," according to Electronic House. And it's not one of those small drop-down numbers like those under-cabinet kitchen models either: It can handle displays of more than 61 inches, the company says, or up to 190 pounds.

Still, there's more than one way to make a statement. For our taste, we'd prefer the bar TV.
