Turn this TV on ... and everyone else around you

As many fans of any sport will agree, the only thing better than being at the game is watching it on TV.

That's assuming you're watching it at a tailgate party with friends -- and that you have something more impressive than the TV with the weird humming noise you brought from the den because you're afraid someone might spill habanero sauce on it.

Enter the portable Panasonic Viera DMP-HV200. It might seem a bit expensive at $640 for a screen of only 10 inches, but it's the first gesture-controlled TV in the world. You can flip from game to game without the hassle of having to wipe your lunch from your hands, so long as you're within 15 centimeters of the screen. It's also waterproof, which certainly applies to hot sauce. Unfortunately, it's currently only released in Japan.

In the meantime, you can settle for the BeoVision 4 3D, from Bang & Olufsen. Provided you have the necessary accommodations, you can relish in 103 inches of unrivaled 3-dimensional plasma television. You'll also need about $110,000. Watching the BeoVision 4 is practically like staring at a Lamborghini and B&O treats it as such, requiring an inspection ahead of installation to insure your, ahem, tailgate can handle the minimum 507 pounds.

"BeoVision 4 uses plasma phosphors, which guarantees the best sharpness in high-speed movement scenes such as sports," says Jette Nygaard of B&O. "The television ensures the most optimal unsurpassed viewing experience."

It also boasts anti-reflection and noise-reduction technology, but no car keys.
