It really brightens up your day when you have a piece of news about something that could bring "futuristic life" that you see in movies, closer to a reality. That particular piece of news for this morning coming from the 2011 CES show was the PenTouch TV.
Now, this isn't the first time that LG has introduced a television with touch-capability. And more than likely, we'll see businesses use this equipment before it hits the regular market. And unfortunately, there isn't much to go on besides the fact that it's made by LG: how useful the touch-pen will be, whether that affects what you're watching, and if this product is actually in the works...who knows. What we *do* know, is that John Madden impersonations around the world just got a bit more real.
"Here you see the PenTouch, and you use this pen to touch the tv and leave marks, and thats why it's called the PenTouch. And if the buttons start beeping, just knock over the pinata." Oh, Madden, how I love the things you say.
