Japan. Home of barely edible raw fish, ninjas and self destructing middle aged hag-wagons Hyundai. But it is Japan's world beating advances in technology that first bought them to the attention of the civilised world. Japanese manufacturing slave house 'Tekapiso' have unveiled the world's smallest television at today's 'International Electrogeek Fair' in much loved target city Hiroshima.
The tiny TV measures only 0.4cm across with a screen that is almost invisible to the human eye. Mr Lung Ko Laps, Chief smaller-maker at the company, is hailed as having started the 'next generation' of must-have, will-lose, must-replace technology.
Zero to infinity amount of units are expected to be sold ahead of what the Japanese call 'Christmas'. We asked a panel of cushy-jobbed moaners at consumer advice magazine 'Which?' what was so revolutionary about the device and would it be a hit:
- 'The TV is great. I can barely see Jimmy Carr's smug quipping little face'
'A fly stole mine, may I have a replacement?'
'My wife told me small is better, I'm not so sure'
'People who live inside a Kinder Egg are sure to benefit from this space saving steaming pile of kit'
The television will go head to head this Festive season against Graham Norton's branded range of homosexual worktools to be the most disappointing Boxing Day ebay resale.
Other people, like you and me and everyone else, will have to wait and see how this contest pans out.
