LASER TV!!! California Startup Creates 100” 3D HDTV Based On... LASERS!

Though they’re a company you’ve probably never heard of, HDI out of Los Gatos, may quickly become a household name thanks to their 3D Laser TV.

It sounds like something made up by a bragging kid, “Oh yeah, well, my TV is in 3D… and it’s got lasers!”, but HDI is putting kid like smiles on the faces of adults viewing their new technology. Using relatively inexpensive and cool lasers, HDI is able to bring a picture to the screen that’s apparently unlike anything seen before.

Chief Technical Officer Edmund Sandburg attributes the picture’s smoothness to an ultra fast refresh rate, a reported 1080Hz to go along with the 1080p resolution. “This device is unique in the fact that it's extremely fast,” he says. “It will do over a thousand frames a second. That allows you to integrate all the color and everything into one device.”

No plans to mass market the television have yet been announced, and pricing and availability could only be considered speculative at the moment. One thing that is certain is how much we’re looking forward to seeing this for ourselves. Lasers kinda make us giggle.
