Mother builds a 98 inch telivison in the ceiling of her son's bedroom

[quote]Patti Deni wanted to surprise her teenage son by giving him his own big-screen TV, so while their new home was being built, she contacted Williamsville, NY–based Stereo Advantage with an idea: Instead of mounting the set to the wall, like everyone else does, she suggested having the TV laid flush across the ceiling.
“It was definitely a first for us,” says systems designer Kevin Bohner.
A 98-inch StarGlas60 display from Stewart Filmscreen was chosen for the unusual project.
“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.
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.
Although her son spends plenty of time gaming, Patty says that viewing and editing his own videos is probably her son’s favorite big-screen application—about the only thing that’s typical in this totally unconventional viewing environment. [/quote]
Even though this sounds awesome, this sounds partially awkward. I still want one :v:
Imagine how bad his vision will be
This is why most kids are fucked up nowadays, because they are damn spoiled
My neck already hurts

CP avatar, normally I would love it but it's a boy and it's obese wtf.
He's going to use it to watch porn.

How does looking up make your vision bad?
Fucking lucky, my parents wont even buy me mcdonalds.
It would be so hard not to sound spoiled in this situation.
Why do parents do goofy and expensive things and then expect everyone to be overjoyed just because it was for you
I would like one, but I would be afraid it would fall on me in the middle of the night.

How did you get the "trade" forum icon?
I would be paranoid as fuck of it falling.
Wouldn't it be better just to mount it into the wall instead of the ceiling?
Why not just put it in the wall?
this is why women shouldn't design things.
On the ceiling is the worst possible place for a tv. Why the fuck would you want that

I doubt it has much chance of falling.
Is that a fucking single bed?
You'd think with parents that rich you would get a bigger bed.
That's a crap angle to view it from.
Still, what a cool mom.

You're only one person, there's no reason to have a bigger bed.
There's even a perfectly good wall right there that could've been used.
Where the fuck is my 98" TV?

maybe your mom installed it in the floor instead.

I think you're forgetting that that woman's son will be going through puberty soon, I'd rather have gotten a bigger bed.
Disgusting. Rich cunt.
Wait, this is news?

Not everyone is like that don't you know?
Fuck if I had my choice I would not even have bed seeing as I sleep in my chair.
the projector alone costs 6000 dollars, plus the 98 inch screen, sound system, and framing, they really must be loaded.

I love child porn, but fat kids? That's just sick, man.
What the... Why would you need that TV? Why on the roof?
That would be an annoying position to have a TV in, what's wrong with one on the wall?
