FakeTV, is it Cooler Than Carpool Kenny?


Here is a product for those that use Carpool Kenny (for security purposes of course) or timers on lights, and is more eco friendly that leaving your TV on. Enter FakeTV, a computer controlled, super-bright multi-color LED lamp with light output equivalent to a typical 27" HDTV LCD television, but it consumes fifty times less power than an actual TV. It creates the effect of a TV that is on, minus sound of course.

This is an item that is sure to land on one of those “as seen on TV” commercials, although it won’t become anywhere near as popular as The Clapper. While FakeTV is sound in principle it’s only going to work as well as the crook casing your house is smart. Leaving the TV on is an old trick, and a TV without sound is only going to fool the most novice of burglars. It’s creepy in a way I can’t quite put my finger on. Oddly enough even Carpool Kenny looks cooler than this thing.

What do you think? Lame or Lamer?
