CES 2007 – Nakamichi is well known for its line of home entertainment systems (especially those on the audio front), and this 42″ LCD display comes with a hand-lacquered display which shimmers like the finish of a grand piano (read: fingerprint magnet). According to Nakamichi, the Kimono LCD display is pretty hardy as the 7-coat lacquer bezel is more than capable of standing against the test of time while retaining its beauty. You get the full 1080p experience as well as SRS TruSurround multi-channel audio which ought to keep you entertained for hours on end. The design looks rather weird to me, but it was still enough to pick up the Design and Engineering Showcase Award for a Video Display. I suppose I don’t have a knack for appreciating abstract art. What do you think?
