Fancy a HDTV in the shower? Look at this!
There’s a wide range of shower/bath radios or mp3-players, and some of them are quite cool, too. The people at Envirovision think further though: they have created a waterproof 19” HD ready TV. Useful if you can comfortably watch it when sitting on the toiled or soaking in the tub. But in the shower? I’m having a hard time trying to imagine how you’d watch TV in the shower, really.
Placement and practicality problems aside, the system is pretty smart.
There are actually two sets available, a 17” one which is quite ordinary, and the 19” HD ready Freeview, which sports a HDMI input and optional separate ceiling speakers. Both devices have inbuilt digital and analogue tuners and are able to receive Freeview digital video and radio. They also have a ‘Direct Heat’ technology that allows for very fast heating of the screen in order to avoid misting before it begins to form.
The 17″ display has a 1280×768 resolution, while the 19″ displays 1440×960 pixels.
The installation process and integration capabilities are what set this set apart from other devices. For instance, it just fits over the cutout (which only has to be 6 cm deep) and seals itself even on a wall surface.
The front frame is made out of polished or grained Japanese steel and can be ordered in different-colored finishes (black or gold, for a hefty premium of course).
The TV’s can be ordered online at envirovision, starting at $1989. Found via popgadget
