There's a great scene in one of our favourite sitcoms, Peep Show, in which Mark and Jeremy are discussing whether or not they should dismantle the Megatron. What's the Megatron? Well, basically it is the taping together of all remote controls (telly, video, stereo, DVD player) into one super-remote. When the prospect of girls visiting their flat arises, they decide that the Megatron doesn't exactly say "Urban Freewheelers" but rather "Sofa Masturbators."
The relevance of this? Well, the good news for anyone who would rather be thought of as an urban freewheeler is that the fine folk at Samsung are doing away with the need for a remote control altogether. Their new Smart TVs are so, well, smart, that a simple gesture is all it takes to access movies, sports, apps and other Smart Content. Forget the remote and use your hands to control TV functions by swiping to navigate and grabbing to select. Like your friends at Bobbysix, it's smart and easy. You can also log in using face recognition and experience 2D and 3D entertainment in full HD 1080p
Of course, if you are a sexy girl who prances around in her underwear and who happens to live in a building with big windows opposite the place of work of a zillion horny men, this could land you in all kinds of bother (as the above clip will illustrate). However, if, like us, you slob around in tracksuit pants and a baggy t-shirt, you should be fine.
So, if your Megatron is starting to smell a bit funny or if you are just tired of spending ages searching for the remote, then get more information about Smart TVs at Samsung's website, or visit the Facebook page to keep right up to date with everything that Samsung has got going on.
