Watch TV on the brick

A football match on my brick
Another new player has entered the market for 3rd party MINDSTORMS sensors: aprilsensors, a renowned manufacturer of TV adapters, has developed a TV sensor for the brick!

According to the company, the new sensor
"enables LEGO® fans to watch TV also on there most favorite embedded device now. Just plug in the TV sensor in any sensor port, connect it to your TV cable or satellite outlet, and the LCD of the NXT will turn into a full-blown TV screen."
Doesn't that sound great?

I got the opportunity to test the first release candidate and had much fun with different movies on my NXT.
The only downside is that football games are somewhat hard to follow when the whole pitch is shown ...

this one had me going and i was thinking all day - i wonder what the April fools day joke is going to be - they haven't had one yet and then i thought about it more and figured that this couldn't be true
good job!
