Another one of those "I'd love to have this" threads

Just seen this on izismile.

Have you worked out what it is yet?

Hmmm, a large set of shelves with holes in the back... for?

Image

Awesome!

Image

LED lighting installed in the top of each shelf, which is apparently remote controlled and can change colour.

See the whole set of pics here.

Pretty damn cool. Makes me think I should actually build my own TV cabinet to house my stuff. How hard can it be...

If there was anything like that in my house, do you know what it would be filled with? My wife's shoes. :(
Suppose you were an idiot; suppose also that you were an XBox One owner. But I repeat myself.

^ Can't be any worse than mine - even after a sort-out it looks like a giant pile of spaghetti and knotted shoelaces!

Why not?

I suspect the two boxes in the bottom left corner are splitter boxes or some type of PVR/VCR units. Hence why that corner has SIX holes behind it rather than just one. I reckon they're all wired down to that box, which is the only one wired to the TV, perhaps with the exception of anything with HDMI/Component Connections, which may well go directly to the TV (I'm thinking the Wii and XBox360)

A lot of those units will be rf cables, no reason at all why they can't be daisy chained into one lead provided only one console is switched on at once.

I agree, here is a slightly smaller example of that kind of thing... http://www.retrocollect.com/Members-Gam ... toid=14090
