TV sets aren't the only home entertainment products that have flattened out. The "Fret" audio system, designed by U.K. design house Studiomold, includes a subwoofer and two flat carboard speakers that can be mounted almost flush against the wall. Shiny Shiny says the pair, which comes in black or white, can be used with MP3 players or TV stereos. By the looks of this unit, it might work as a decent window treatment as well.
