The FakeTV: welfare home security gets a $49 upgrade


The FakeTV is an appropriately named $49 anti-burglary boob tube. It does just one thing: it makes it look like someone is basking in the flickering glow of the television at midnight, simulating the stroboscopic effect of a real television but at a fraction of the real electrical cost. The manufacturers swear it will simulate "the light effects of real television programming – scene changes, camera pans, fades, flicks, swells, on-screen motion, and more." Not bad. Now let's hope no burglar ever gets the bright idea to rob your house in the day time.
