Sony's TV division has apparently decided that the next great feature in televisions has nothing to do with image contrast, brightness, or green efficiency standards. Instead, they're going to make rain- and freeze-proof TVs.
This will come in handy when I'm playing outside in Antarctica
that will make you feel warm if you played kz2 on it in the middle of a snow storm LOL
lol why sony why? way to waste R&D costs sony
its not stupid. if you would think for a while what you can do with this, then you would understand. I'll give you a hint, an Outdoor Restruant, theme parks, airports....
...Playing underwater in a pool!
This would work great for an outdoor TV at a bar or restaurant.
But some people can't see past their noses and that will never occur to them.
Yup that's the reason why. The media its changing and Plasma / LCD screens are going to be more cheaper everyday. Its a good medium to promote your store sales.
this will be great for so many uses..... the discription makes it sound like a dumb idea lol
Sadly TVs are still going to need covering because of theft, or so people don't break the screens.
"Sony's new stupid piece of sh!t." lol. Have a laugh ya.
On launch day for the 360. Slept outside bestbuy and was number 21 out of 25. We got there at 4pm day before and had to camp out on the side of the store. I remember telling a friend that if we had a TV that could withstand cold weather (I am in WA state) we could have hooked it up to his van and played while in line. Anyway, Friday needs to hurry the flip up. I'm dying for my KZ2 copy! Blockbuster better not F&$% up my order!!! The 360 will be collecting some dust til AT LEASE Alan Wake or LP2!
it would actually work perfectly outside, advertising with these tvs will be very popular i think.
I have a feeling these are what will end up in the new Yankee Stadium as part of Sony's deal with the pinstripes. They will especially come in handy on the sides of the new outfield bar and grill which, embarrassingly enough even for a Yankee fan, the bleacher seats out there are going to be obstructed due to the centerfield bar. If you look at the new Stadium, if you are sitting next to or really close to the bar, you're not going to be able to see leftfield from the right field bleachers and vice versa. The Yankees already announced those tickets will only cost $5 and that there will be televisions, likely these weatherproof ones, on the walls of the structure so fans can follow what is going on.
That sucks. I would want a perfect view when Boston is in town so you can see each run the Sox score... Respect, respect! I kid...just a Boston fan. I had to say it. Good luck to you and your team...
Wow! None of you guys actually do outdoors barbecues or pic nics or family parties or... You get it? Really, a rain proof TV would be amazing. I'm not telling that you should watch TV in the rain, that is probably even worse than it sounds, but actually not having to go desperate because it started to rain and your TV is still outside, now that is wonderful. PS: Bubbles up to Gold for just saying other use for an outdoor/weather-proof TV.
well, i been to plenty of homes where the home owner leaves for vacation to some place worm to only come home to busted water lines from freezing in the winter. i seen many big expensive tv's and electronics ruined all because they wanted to save on heat. i dont see it moving cause ppl just dont expect to come to a frozen flooded home.
i been to plenty of home that had many things ruined including expensive tv's. all becasue the home owner decides to take a vacation in the winter and not leave the heat on. huge mistake.. i dont see this flying off shelves but im sure their are ppl that would take a second look at that
what a waste of money... I don't care if it's water proof... what kind of idiot would touch a TV while is wet. Expect a bunch of electrocution lawsuits. mmm... I wonder how it would be to play games under water... Zzzrrrrrr! (balls floating...)
I'd totally have one in my pool. :D But at the same time, how the hell am I supposed to breathe? D:
*sigh* If it's waterproof obviously there will be no water touching anything that's carrying electricity... or it will short out. No water touching electric wires (even though water is a bad conductor of electricity) = No electrocution.
Once you grow up and have a backyard wouldnt it be nice to have a flat screen by the pool? Well it gets cold outside.. Go have a look around youll see a few OUTDOOR model tv's already out..
prob not intended for home use in the first place.
It's probably the best TV ever made.
I guess it has some sort of use commercially. Though you would think some sort of housing would work just fine. But there is probably some applications for it that I am not aware of.
Perfect to have in my aquarium :)
This is the tough book of TVs.
