Art Lebedev Pultius 102-channel TV remote control designI’m not sure whether this is the most ridiculous thing to come out of Art Lebedev design studio ever or it’s meant to be taken lighthearted, but here is their design for a 102-channels button remote control for your couch potato lifestyle. I’m guessing that the idea behind the Pultius TV remote control is to make it easier for you to go to channel 296 by pressing the “200″ button first followed by the “96″ button, a whole savings of half-a-second of your life by eliminating pressing a third button.

Homer Simpson shower radioWhat, you ask, could be better than a radio shaped like Homer Simpson’s head? It would have to be a shower radio shaped like Homer Simpson’s head, no less. What’s also better about this model is that it’s a talking Homer Simpson radio that will say one of six shower-related phrases when you press his ear. So now you can have Homer with you in the shower, too. How cool is that?!?

Homer’s right eye controls tuning in the AM or FM stations and the left controls the volume with the speaker appropriately at his mouth. With a hook to hang over the shower head the Homer radio is of course water resistant and is powered by three AAA batteries. retailing for $39.95.

Be a Couch PC Potato with Buffalo’s Kone

Posted in Buffalo,Television,USB by Chetz on July 12th, 2007

buffalo_dh-koneLet’s say that you want to watch the latest episode of “Lost” as it’s being broadcast and not have to resort to downloading the episode later on. Your sense of morals can rest easy when you have Buffalo’s DH-KONE/U2S USB 2.0 television tuner affixed to your machine!

The DH-KONE plugs into one of your computer’s USB ports. You can put it on the side of any metal wall and it will cling to it thanks to the unit’s magnetic bottom (if you don’t like that idea you can use the suction cup base.) While you’re watching Jack and Sawyer fighting over Kate, you can have the tuner look for other info about the episode, later programming schedules or the latest headlines or weather. You can also watch and record another program at the same time.

Buffalo’s DH-KONE will be available to Japanese consumers near the end of the month …

NEC MultiSunc LCD4010 AV LCD televisionNEC is out today with some new and thin large screen LCD displays for commercial applications (though we imagine you could use them at home as well). Meet the NEC MultiSync LCD4020 and LCD4620, both available this month.

The MultiSync LCD4020 and LCD4620 sport 40-inch and 46-inch screens respectively. NEC is saying one big upgrade in this series is its new CV12 pixel technology. It makes use of chevron-shaped pixels to reportedly deliver twice the contrast of comparable panel displays while also increasing brightness and viewing angles. Exciting (maybe).

Beyond this CV12 tech you get some other interesting features out of these two monitors. These include 1366 x 768 resolution with a 1200:1 contrast ratio, 10-millisecond response time, an expansion slot for an optional HDTV tuner or future technology components and support for a variety of digital and analog inputs.

JVC HD-110MH80 110 inch HDTVJVC has unveiled what may well be the world’s largest HD television. Though you may never be able to move it due to its 730 pound weight (!) you’ll still probably get tons of jaw-dropping looks watching the 110-inch HD-110MH80.

This monster of an HDTV, though not as big as this 200-inch projection television showing off a PlayStation 3, brings its 1920 x 1080, rear projection experience up close and personal. One thing JVC seems to be making a big deal about with this television is its 110V type large picture. This is apparently the same electric power consumption as a 37V type liquid crystal television.

world’s largest HDTV from JVCYou of course get all your other standard HDTV offerings like onscreen program guides, built-in speakers, component video input, broadband connectivity and also two HDMI inputs. The HD-110MH80 also looks to …
