I just received an email from a reader saying:
Hi Max, I normally don't watch much TV and – much less – I wouldn't foist my TV viewing onto anyone else (reruns of ALF, for example), but here is TV you MUST see... this LCD set adjusts itself to room lighting/color conditions...
And he pointed me at a Video of the LG90 HD LCD TV on the EngineeringTV.com website.
Good Grief, this is a beauty. A high-definition (1920 x 1080p), 120 Hz, 47-inch display with an ultra-high 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. In addition to just being awesome, this little scamp also adjusts for ambient lighting conditions.
And, by this, I don't just mean how bright the ambient light is, but also its color characteristics. For example, things look different under incandescent versus halogen versus fluorescent versus natural light. Furthermore, if your abode is painted bright green, for example, then this will affect the quality of the light bouncing around the room. The LG90 takes care of all of this by constantly monitoring the room's lighting/color conditions and dynamically adjusting its brightness, sharpness, and tint.
At $3,500 or more this isn't cheap ... but I bet most of us would not say "No" if we were to be offered one as a gift (grin).
In fact, the EngineeringTV.com site contains all sorts of interesting "Stuff" to fill your day (Click Here to see what I mean).
PS I like Alf!
