C SEED has released a 165-inch folding MicroLED 4K TV called the M1. It can store itself in the floor when not in use, but with such interesting engineering, few would want to hide such a work of art. It uses patented Adaptive Gap Calibration Technology to create a seamless, foldable screen without visible gaps. Factor in its HDR10+ support, and viewers are in for a treat. It features two 250-watt speakers and a 700-watt subwoofer but also has support for 11.2 external audio. Those interested in purchasing one will need pockets deeper than it can fold, however: TechRadar reports it costs around $400,000.

Designer Stefan Pani, a University of Applied Arts Vienna graduate, stepped into large shoes when creating the indoor version of the famous C SEED 201 outdoor TV design by Porsche Design Studio. With the constraints inherent in outdoor applications absent, he made smart use of the possibilities that kinetics and material offered. He created a frame with integrated soundboard that unfolds and then settles smoothly on a base made up of four plates. Function follows form here, visually very coherent, luxuriously minimalist and with an exciting, aggressively elegant tension.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
