Flat TVs w/wood casing

While many televisions used to be encased in wood from the 1950s through to the 1980s, that trend has all but died except for the most expensive sets, such as the newly announced ones by LG Korea. The top of the line is represent by a 60-inch, 1080p plasma model, priced at a considerably high 9,181,105 won ($9,790).

There will however be more reasonably-priced sets designed by Reddot, including 50- and 42-inch plasmas, and 42- and 32-inch LCDs. Separately-released 42- and 37-inch sets will have built-in hard drives for DVR functions. No release schedules have been produced, but the sets are unlikely to come to North America in their current form. [via Akihabara News]
