Sanyo's CE52SR1: can shrug off everything from spilled drinks to rain

The flat-panel telly has a “marine grade” anodised aluminium frame and cabinet construction, helping to protect the innards against everything from Coke spillages to showers. Pr0n lovers are going to ape for it...

Sanyo even boasts that the screen’s protection against water is so good that it “can withstand low-pressure jets of water sprayed directly on the front glass”.

And, because rain usually falls outside, the screen has also been treated to ensure that all of its 179° viewing angle is still visible under sunlight.

Admittedly, the Sanyo stunner is designed for commercial uses, such as theme parks and railway stations, the company said. However, there’s nothing to stop you dreaming about weekend barbeques, where you know that watching the football and having a water fight won’t cause a major electrical fault.

Or the notoriously barbie-unfriendly British weather. Indoors if wet? Not any more.

The telly comes with a one-year warranty, though you shouldn’t really need it, and will be available in October for $14,000 (£7100/€9000).
