Take a look at the world’s first truly wireless TV

The Displace TV costs thousands — but at least you don’t have to pay a handyman to mount it.

The wireless Displace TV is a new take on flatscreens.It sticks to surfaces using a vacuum system instead of traditional TV mounting.The battery-powered display will cost you: $4,500.

The convenience of a wireless TV — no ugly wires, no hiring a handyman — is here, but it will cost you.

The Displace TV is a battery-powered, 55-inch flatscreen TV. While it sounds like a renter’s dream, it may not be at the typical renter’s price-point. The TV, which is now available to preorder, costs $4,499 and shipping is expected to begin in the first half of next year. The company also offers a four-pack of TVs that can be put together to create a massive 110-inch screen for $13,499 — if you want to spend six figures on your entertainment system.

With no wires or ports and weighing less than 20 pounds, the device uses a vacuum suction system, that relies on battery power, to help it adhere to surfaces without the assistance of power tools or nails in the wall. It can hold its place on the wall for up to 10 months, according to a press release.

Its built-in landing gear slowly lowers the TV to the floor.

And if something does go wrong? A built-in safety system uses a zipline to slowly lower the display to the floor if its sensors detect any issues with the wall, battery level, or the vacuum pumps. While the landing gears do their thing, the TV also deploys foam to protect the screen.

“We’ve performed hundreds of hours of tests to ensure our wall-mounting technology is the safest on the market,” Displace founder and CEO Balaji Krishnan said in the press release.

The TV debuted at CES earlier this year to mixed reviews, with The Verge calling it “the definition of absuridity.”

Ugly TV cords and mounts have long been an eyesore for TV owners. Recently, frame TVs, or mounted TV displays that mimicking framed artwork, have taken over social media as one way to disguise TV hardware.
