The electronics giant has shown off what it claims to be “Earth’s first off-the-grid television” that’s powered entirely by a single solar panel.

The telly is being displayed at the CEATEC electronics show in Japan where, because sunlight’s not in abundance inside, the firm appears to be powering the solar panel by a floodlight, website AVing reports.

Nonetheless, a Japanese placard beside the 52in telly appears to describe how the solar panel generates up to 220kWh of electricity, which is then consumed by the screen. The net result: pictures and no damaging CO2 emissions.
