Aldous Huxley’s Feelies – movies where you can feel every hair of the tiger-skin rug on which the erotic sequence was filmed are getting ever closer, and the latest product you never knew you wanted comes from Samsung Electronics Co, which claims to have invented a Bio Television that converts harmful waves into emissions that help keep flowers fresh longer and fish swimming faster – the claim is that it converts the electromagnetic waves emitted by the set into helpful far-infra-red rays that simulate sunlight, helping animals to produce vitamins and plants to grow: in laboratory tests, the South Korean says, chrysanthemums stayed fresh for 45 days when placed in front of the Bio Television compared with 30 days for an ordinary TV, and fish remained twice as active, oions grew twice as fast, and tadpoles lived twice as long; no word on the effect it had on the fleas in the carpet, but five will get you 10 they were jumping twice as high.
