A TV from George Jetson's den

Hannspree, maker of TV purses, does it again.

Pocket-lint

To find out how many ways a TV can be designed, one need look no further than Hannspree--maker of any type of set you could fancy, from purses to giant fruit. (The answer, apparently, is infinite.)

Given that track record, the company's latest offering might actually be considered subdued by comparison, albeit contrived. The "Starlight Blue" bears a 3D design inspired by the night sky, with a finish that sparkles when illuminated. The specs alone wouldn't necessarily make this LCD an attractive buy, with 720p resolution and 500:1 contrast ratio, but that's obviously not the main selling point.

What may make it more attractive is its Jetsons-style contours, which would fit appropriately in many mid-century Shag-influenced decors. One can just imagine watching this while martinis are served on a tray by Rosie.
