Philips Ships Green Tv With a Remote That is More Interesting Than the Tv

Everything is going “green” today, and that’s a good thing. TVs are increasingly using green tech, which is better for the environment and costs you less to run the set. However, I am getting a bit bored by companies that put out TVs and brag on the green features when those features are commonplace today.


Philips has unveiled a new green 42-inch TV with an aluminum case and a 0W power off mode. The TV also needs only 40W of juice when using Eco mode. That’s all fine and good, but hardly earth shattering feature makes the set nothing but meh for me. The remote control on the other hand is pretty cool.

Philips is shipping a really cool solar remote control with this TV. To charge this thing, all the user needs to do is sit it in the sun with the back facing up. That’s cool, assuming you have a window nearby.

Generally, remotes are tossed in the drawer around here in favor of my Harmony One, but this one might actually sit out on the coffee table.
