Seriously. I read on the internet (so you know how accurate that is) when he built that luxury hotel size house in Redmond or wherever, he tried to have monitors built into the walls to display OTHER people's art. The idea was that when they were not displaying art they would display a texture that looked like the real wall part and kinda blend in.

Couldn't make it work.

I suspect technology has caught up a bit on that by now, and personally I think it would be a kickazz idea if you could afford it.

About thirty years ago I read an article about those monitors in Bill Gates mansion. Todays LCD's are so much better, bigger, higher resolution, better performance, lower power and a fraction of the cost. It makes much more sense to do this today, especially with just one monitor instead of dozens.
