Sharp presents solar LCD TV prototype for the 1.6 billion people on earth with no electricity

with one comment

Today Sharp unveiled a prototype of a 26-inch LCD Aquos TV [JP], which is solely powered by solar energy. The company said one day, their solution might bring television to all the 1.6 billion people on earth who don’t have access to electricity.

Sharp’s new green TV uses half of the power existing LCDs need. In comparison to the power consumption of the 28C-PB500 [JP], a CRT TV Sharp introduced in 2002, the prototype looks even more interesting since it boasts just 25% of that old model’s annual power consumption.

A  highly advanced triple-junction thin-film solar cell battery is used to power the green TV. The solar panel/TV kit will be showcased during the G8 summit in Hokkaido starting July 7th.

All the people with no power in the world can still get TV…yay
