It senses whether someone is watching TV alone, and can make recommendations based on viewing habits.

It can also tell if a viewer has left the room and can switch itself off to save energy.

"The consumer we're aiming this television at tends to be quite family-orientated so this function is important," the Daily Express quoted Christian Brown, Sony's senior marketing manager for home entertainment, as saying.

The LX, which has not yet been given a price, was unveiled as part of Sony's latest range of 3D TVs.

The first will go on sale tomorrow, starting with the 3D-capable HX8 40in, priced around 1,800 pounds, and the HX8 46in at around 2,200 pounds.
