Sick and tired of long and dusty cables running behind your television stand? Well Haier might have the solution for you in the form of their recently unveiled 55” 3D TV that does not feature a power plug cable! The device was exhibited recently at CES 2012 which was held some time last week, but unfortunately it appears that this particular model is merely a prototype and that Haier has no plans to commercialize the device at this point.
The prototype has been dubbed the “Completely Wireless TV”, and by completely they mean that both electricity and video signals are being transmitted to the television wirelessly. The video has its signals transmitted via WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface), while the electricity is being transmitted using a power-receiving coil that is located near the bottom of the the TV, while a power-transmitting device was stored in a box on which the TV was placed.
It’s a pretty interesting concept, and given how much emphasis we seem to place these days on wireless devices and what not, we wouldn’t be surprised if demand for such a “Completely Wireless TV” sees an increase in the future. What do you guys think? Is this a television you wouldn’t mind owning?
