I think we are missing the obvious target market for this device: small rooms. Remember, there are many places in the world that do not have a lot of living space compared to the U.S.: Tokyo, many European cities, New York City. This would be a way of getting a HT system into a very small footprint.

But the thing is it doesn't actually save any space. It's the same footprint with the screen raised or down. The enclosed screen is just a bit lower - and uglier. Why not have the TV held cleanly at the right height on the pedestal? It would look nicer, less like some baffling chunk of metal, and the foot-print is the same in either case.
