Water-Cooled TV Ultra Bright Matthew DIY Perks
Have you ever wondered why it seems impossible to get a clear view of a smartphone screen or TV on a bright sunny day outside? It’s mainly because the screen reflects ambient light, thus reducing the contrast of the image. In other words, if the reflected light is comparable in intensity to the screen itself, distinguishing between the bright and dark areas within the image itself becomes an impossible task. Read more to see how inventor Matthew Perks got around this issue.

Simply put, this invention basically consists of an upcycled 4K TV customized to support LED panels that are four times brighter than a conventional panel. Unfortunately, the heat generated by these new panels and their hardware could potentially be a fire hazard. So, Perks decided to add a car radiator, custom piping, a handcrafted aluminum shell, and a waterfall-style reservoir designed to pull heat away from the panel. Plus, everything is waterproof, so you won’t have to bring this water-cooled TV inside when the weather doesn’t cooperate.
