IFA 2011 – LG announces the PenTouch stylus-enabled TV

LG Stylus TV

If you’re a big stylus fan then you’re in luck. Not only can you get the little guys in all shapes, sizes and colours nowadays for your phone, tablet or computer, but you can also use one to control your TV too.

LG has unveiled a range of plasma HDTVs that allow you to use a special stylus to surf the interwebz and create and control all kinds of content on the screen.

The first model, the PenTouchTV, has a range of interesting features, including two-pen mode, an impressive suite of fancy, stylus-enabled software and a protective, scratch-free glass screen, which seems necessary given you’re going to be scribbling all over it.

According to Engadget, the PenTouchTV may only be available in the US for the time being, and will cost around $2,199 for a 3D model and $1,699 for a regular model.
