Do you like jigging your leg when you watch the TV? Then Sony have the perfect TV for you! Their new Eco Bravia line has a 40% reduction of power usage compared to standard models, through a number of environmentally happy features, the most bizarre of which is undoubtedly the Presence Sensor.

When the sensor fails to identify movement in the room, it will automatically witch itself off. How long does it wait? How sensitive is it? They’re not telling, but for maximum amusement, I’m hoping the answer is two minutes and not very, respectively.

The Eco range will come in the form of the 52-inch KDL-52VE5, the 46-inch KDL-46VE5, and the 40-inch KDL-40VE5, and each will feature 1080p resolution, four HDMI inputs, and a PC input..
