Now we just need something to watch on it. And the crazy amount of money it would take to buy it.

CES is a time for companies to show off all their new products, getting consumers and businesses excited for the upcoming year. It's also a time to show off really exciting prototypes like Sharp's 85" 8k resolution TV.

8k, for those that don't feel like Googling or mathing it out, is a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320. That's 16 times higher than 1080p and, according to folks at the show it sure makes a difference. "No matter how close we got," writes Engadget's Richard Lawler, "we couldn't see the pixels."

This is, of course, a prototype with no plans for release or mass production. Still, it's a nice glimpse of the potential of upcoming hardware.
