Could Your TV Soon Literally Blend Into Your Wallpaper?
Forget flat screens, the TV of the future could blend seamlessly into your surroundings.
Wallpaper has been around since the 1400s; what began as a cheap alternative to tapestry and wood paneling, has grown into a huge decorative industry. Surprisingly enough, this once purely decorative medium has evolved to serve multiple purposes spanning industries. Sense-stimulating lickable cake wallpaper has been used by the advertising industry to sell desserts.
