With the current G8 summit in Japan and environmental concerns on the front pages around the world right now, Sharp has chosen the perfect time to unveil its most eco-friendly television yet.

The 26-inch LCD is actually on show at the summit in northern Japan, where it forms part of an environment showcase from the Osaka company. Sharp claims it uses just a quarter the power of a similarly sized CRT television.

No socket required

Not only that, but Sharp is also demonstrating the new set running off a solar panel that is the same size as the TV screen, meaning it has no need for a mains connection.

Although the pairing constitutes a prototype, Sharp suggests it might find a market in areas where there simply is no electricity supply - a situation that currently affects 1.6 billion people worldwide.
