Building a homemade 'wallpaper TV'

In this video I attempt to build a home-made 'wallpaper TV' on a shoestring budget, and the result is surprisingly good!

More info on the framerate thingy:

UFO motion tests are from and the video shown on screen is from the amazing scenery video 'Patagonia 8k'

    Samsung worker: “but sir we are doing the best we can”

    Damn. I want him to recreate this project nowadays. His build quality and technical know-how has skyrocketed since. He'll probably end up making a TV that's invisible altogether when switched off

    The whole dimmer thing was insane. You know some crazy stuff.

    The reason he is so subscribed is because of the quality of his videos and the efficient way he communicates. This is the sweet spot for many makers like me that really appreciate the last mile shown to us and don't suffer long windedness for the sake of analytics. Plus, he just has really cool projects. YT is stratefying in layers, with content makers like this at the top, being justly rewarded with likes and subs.

    I had a 48" rear projection TV. I cut a hole in the wall so the front was flush with the wall. The back of the TV protruded into the garage.

    That dimmer seems like something Captain Disillusion would absolutely LOVE!

    As cool as this project was, I found myself more impressed by him explaining the flashing frames and persistence of vision :D

    Great score on the used Sony TV! Most of the commenters missed the main point, that is, to make a wall-paper TV on a shoestring budget. In that you succeeded brilliantly. I would only try something like this if I can undo it later if it doesn't work out. Minus the few screw and wire access holes you got pretty close to that ideal as well, so great job!

    Just wanted to let you know how much i appreciate your in depth videos and how much effort and work you put into them.

    Flat screens generate a great deal of heat. That's why the manufacturer designs cooling vents in the back panel. How do you allow for the venting of heat from the panel and boards?

    Good project, very clearly explained.

    I have watched quite a few of your videos over the last week and have to say I find them amazing. I would not have the balls or skills to even attempt to tackle a job like you did here or the many other projects you have done. The computer Desktop you built by the way was amazing and in all honesty not even that chap Linus I see on the tube could build something as good as that either. I take my hat off to you sir. This gets a BIG like from me and the subscribe button just had to be hit so I can see some more of your amazing work.

    Personally I think covering those boxes in the lower left with something, and adding a mesh over the speakers would make this a lot better looking. Otherwise, great job! :)

    The explanation at the end was extremely interesting. I did research and found out that some Samsung LED TVs have a similar feature built in, namely "Motion LED". In fact, a TV that i own has this feature and i have always wondered what it does, since the screen becomes noticeably dimmer once activated. This seems to be what the TV is doing with the backlight.

    Firstly I must congratulate you on your very clear diction - it makes your presentations a joy to listen to and engenders interest in the subject matter. Depending on the size of your room, one could also make the false wall a little thicker so that the externally mounted circuit boards were flush with the TV. It would also be fun to have electronically operated curtains to cover the TV - and then somehow link in the on/off switch for the TV to open the curtains a few seconds before the TV came on :-)

    Depending on how the wall is, i would've just left the TV on the bracket and built a drywall from side to side with cut outs.

    Incredible experiment with the perceived motion. Well done

    The unpainted speaker hole edges would break me

    I am inspired by every single video you produce. Thanks man! Some of your content is a little out of my grasp, for now anyway. But I still appreciate the forward thinking. You must be a great engineer career wise. That's my guess. Again... thanks for the ideas
