Sharp solar powered 26 inch LCD TV for the third world

Coming to the specs it has a contrast ratio of 10000:1 and the display panel is just 20mm thick. Another innovation showcased by Sharp was a 26 inch solar panel which generates enough electricity to power the LCD TV. According to Sharp it is a perfect combo for the 1.6 billion people living below the poverty line in non-electrified areas and earning less than $2 a day.
