Panasonic Reveals a 145 Inch 8K Plasma

Well that’s just plain awesome. Overkill, of course, but awesome.

The folks at Panasonic have a new set that they’ve created just to show off what they’re capable of. The plasma is 145 inches and has an incredible 8K resolution. That’s the standard that the company is hoping will be regular in broadcasts by 2020.

According to Engadget’s Joseph Volpe who was able to see it first hand, the set is downright jaw dropping. “In person, the flat screen is truly awe-inspiring,” he writes, “offering such richness of detail that even up-close we weren't able to discern any pixels, while colors appeared balanced and natural.”

Like with most expensive new tech, 8K displays will be aimed at businesses first, but we’re looking forward to going all 1984 and turning our wall into a hyper realistic display. Now how do we fit something like this through the door?
