Scary Terminator Skull DVD Player

Terminator Skull DVD Player

After digging deep into the net, no words of where this scary-but-cool looking terminator skull / DVD player came from. But it still looks good, we think it deserves posting. As you can see, the cranial portion of the skull has compartment to place DVD within. The exterior is covered with glossy metal layer, probably Aluminium. The eye sockets seem to turn on when the player is reading the DVD. [Toxel]

Funai Integrated LCD / Blu-Ray Player

Funai (Sylvania, Symphonic, Emerson) is planning to sell LCD TVs with integrated Blu-ray Disc players in the US next summer. Currently 20% of all Funai TV sales in the US are based on TV/DVD player combos. Funai is likely to offer midsize and large screens with integrated Blu-ray players, both at Wal-Mart and electronics stores. Details are scarce at this point but a planned 42-inch LCD TV/Blu-ray combo, for example, is said to be priced between $1,100 and $1,300, which may not be too competitive considering it is another year from now.
