The Solar-Powered Television!?!

Hmmm....Harnessing the power of outside to stay inside?  "A 26-inch solar-powered LCD television that can be powered by a thin-film photovoltaic panel! Sharp’s plan is to distribute the TV and solar module to areas that have no easy access to grid power. The triple-junction thin film solar cell module is the cost effective panel to date that is being mass produced by Sharp.... The television itself is an ultra low-powered LCD screen that uses less than a third of the energy required by conventional LCDs. The area required to power this television would be similar to that of the TV screen, something which is not possible with current TVs."

The Solar-Powered Television!?!

So, there you go. Whatcha think? Is a television the best way to test out this new technology?
