Samsung is introducing two styles of concave TV's this year. 

You can press a button on the remote control and it moves to the bendable position and press it again to return it to your original flat screen HD-TV. 
Samsung did announce it as a concept which means that it is still in the making, but now they say it will ship this year. And surprisingly, it is a real product now. 
This TV has an LCD screen, and the frame including parts of the back light and filter bend at will. 
People could call this TV "Sleep-by-numbers- The TV version"
The TV housing is larger then most TV's which will raise the cost. The cost is not presented yet, I imagine that it will cost a very large amount when it is in the stores later this year.
