Trick Burglars Without the Electric Bill


Ever wonder why burglars are less likely to break into your home if they see a TV glare off of a window? Me too. Chances are it’s just some lazy couch potato that you could mug for a few hundred bucks, but instead, burglars take the safe approach, waiting for signs of vacancy before breaking in and leaving with a necklace, pearl earrings and a new toaster.

With Blaine Readler’s invention, the FakeTV, you need not worry about toaster-stealing crooks. This simplistic idea is an easy way to emulate a television to make it appear as if you’re home watching Conan. Sure, you could leave your television and rack up your electric bill, but this is a cheaper, alternative solution. If this burglar just so happens to not care whether you’re home or not, he/she is now in possession of an awesome new FakeTV.
