Fake Tv Scares Off Intruders, Saves Power

Ever felt the need to leave a television on to make it look like somebody is home while you’re out of town? This quirky little invention does just one thing – simulate the effect of having left your TV turned on.

FakeTV LED Television Simulator

The $49 FakeTV uses an array of colored, flashing LEDs to create the illusion of the stroboscopic effect of a television. The compact box uses only a fraction of the electricity of a real TV, and doesn’t put unnecessary wear and tear on your precious plasma or flat panel.

According to its creator “FakeTV uses a built-in computer to control super-bright LEDs to produce light of varying intensity and color that light up a room just like a real television does. The light effects of real television programming — scene changes, camera pans, fades, flicks, swells, on-screen motion, and more, are all faithfully simulated by FakeTV… fills a room with color changes, both subtle and dramatic, in thousands of possible shades. FakeTV is completely unpredictable, and it never repeats.”

The FakeTV can be programmed to automatically activate at dusk, then stay on for up to seven hours. You can also connect it to an external outlet timer to turn it on and off. For more information, check out the FakeTV website.
