Sharp Aquos Net: Widget TV

Sharp's new Aquos Net brings (approved) widgets to your television. Our shaky video walks you though the experience. It's not the speediest interface at the moment, but we're really digging the different panel size options. You can leave the widgets in the corner, blow them up to half-screen size, or go to the sites ala full-panel web browser.


Aquos Net won't change the world, but as a prototype of what's to come in the industry, it's pretty freakin' cool.



This is a very cool idea, but adds to the disposability of the TV. When Sharp ends support for the TV, I'm sure the widgets will be disposed of also. What will happen in 5-10 years when ethernet connections are gone?
