EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Strictly speaking, television is a pulsating blue light, which is why from the outside of a house, it makes it look as though the entire living room or bedroom is glowing blue while turned on. That's the basic principal behind a new device designed to ward off burglars.

FakeTV, manufactured by Hydreon Corp., uses LEDs to simulate the light produced by a television set, using a built-in computer to produce effects that emulate variations in light and color that come from scene changes, camera pans, fades, flicks and on-screen motion.
