Panasonic develops toddler-proof plasma TV
Electronics giant Panasonic has decided to specifically target the ‘parents’ market, announcing their latest screen to be ‘fingerprint proof’.
The company says that special coatings and polymers applied to their latest screens, along with the massive increase in power consumption, can push the screen temperature up to the point that even one brief touch can remove a toddler’s fingerprints. ‘That should make sure the little shits keep their grubby mitts off,’ said their spokesman. ‘They don’t bloody do it twice I can tell you!’
A spokesman dismissed concerns from environmentalists that the company is ignoring green concerns as ‘scaremongering’. ‘Parents will do whatever they have to to protect their pride and joy — and making sure they’re not having to constantly shout at their toddlers to make sure it doesn’t end up smothered in chocolate is worth using three times the power of a standard television, even on standby.’
