Rich Kid Gets 98″ TV Installed On Ceiling
Just when I thought having a 32 inch HDTV in front of my bed was already pretty cool, I came across this news that says a mom had installed a 98-inch tv above her teenage son’s bed >_<
It was a difficult project installing such a huge TV:
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.
And here’s the mom and system designer telling us how great the TV is:
“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.

It’s making me so jealous that I hope the next time I read about this, it would be “98 inch TV falls on teenager face”.
