Panasonic Plans 150-Inch Plasma TV
Panasonic is testing and preparing to launch a 150-inch plasma-screen television some time next year, tech blog Gizmodo reports. Already offering a $70,000 103-inch plasma television, Panasonic could roll out the 150-incher for double that. Gizmodo went hands-on with the big screen, trying movies and video games out on the set. “It’s more than a TV,” the blog said. “It’s a glimpse into the future, it’s a brazen display of hubris and overkill, and it’s a visceral, skin-searing experience. It belongs on spaceships and in museums, not in living rooms. It’s only right.”
