The Koreans have done it. You just need to wait a week before the Japanese follows suit with a 3D ready Plasma TV bigger than this one with a possibility that it comes with a service of cleaning your toilets while you doze off on your La-Z-Boy. The Samsung 3D ready plasma TV comes in 42 and 50 inches, the PAVV Cannes 450 has a 30,000:1 ratio and 3D content support and will work with high-performance PC-supporting 3D software and 3D glasses. They even have a supped up version with HD and all that brouhaha. Prices are in Korean Won but in USD, it’s $1,850 for the 42-incher, and $2,656 for the 50-incher. For the HD version of this 3D gamma box, it’s $4,145.
So, start saving up those Disney 3D glasses because our TV content is going to pop up soon enough.

You can use it to work, watch movies, and roll sushi because it’s SO flexible. it is knife and scratch resistant and boasts to boost image quality quite a fair bit. Definitely something we ought have in our homes. It would save us so much space – imagine your mom cutting vegetables while watching her favorite soap opera on her chopping board :)
SED technology boosts of the best of LCD, Plasma and CRT at a cheap price. These two giants, Canon and Toshiba, have been promising us that they will mass produce SED TVs to the public but their promises has since fallen short everytime with excuses. This time it’s no different. The SED is delayed again because they want to find a way to mass produce them cheaply.
Call wolf too many times and people might just ignore you next time. I hope the SED TV come out soon for their own sake.
Apple 30 inch Cinema Display
The 30inch Apple Cinema Display is going for cheap(er) with a price cut of $200 bucks. So it now sells for $1799 instead of $1999. It’s still expensive in my opinion. But they are having other cuts too on other slightly smaller displays. The 20 and 23 inch cinema displays are going for $599 and $899 respectively.
This move, the price cut and all has me wondering if they’re going to present something new soon. Like maybe a LCD monitor that can play TV and tell you what’s for dinner and pay your bills :P
Anyway, this deal is pretty good, esp on the 20 and 23 inch ones. If you want to double up your screen, now’s definitely the time to buy them. You can go to their APPLE STORE to order one now.
A spoof made by the people are Gizmodo on how Sony said their Blu-ray players are going to take over the world in 3 years made me laugh. However, Sony’s world domination message has certainly striked a cord somewhere with the Toshiba because they are cutting their HD DVD prices down down down. The HD-XA2, the HD-A20, and the HD-A2 is now priced at $799, $499, and $399, respectively…that’s at least a $200 bucks cut each.
I guess now the best time to buy them. However, the prices is said to start only in April so hold your horses first because this COULD be a hoax or it could be a wonderful news to those who is eyeing to buy one *nods*

When you have a 50 incher flat screen tv up on your wall, you have to admit that it is taking up a ton of precious space when you’re not using it. Who wants a random black rectangle on their wall like that? So TV2Art’s come up with a Lightscope that once attached on your tv, the electric signals will creat abstract art on your flatscreens. It’s awesome. :D
The brainchild of artists Daniel Goldstein and John Kapellas, Lightascopes sample light and colour from the TV to create changing patterns and swirls, adding a modern aesthetic accent to the room.
Lightscopes are made from the same lightweight materials as credit cards and are fixed onto the tV with a microsuction tape. Sizes comes from 32-50 inches. It also comes in 3 different styles which you can choose to suit your taste. Price range from $135-199. There is also a deluxe version with all three styles combined for a hefty $488!

Mitsubishi have developed the world’s largest high definition (HD) television. Using LED technology, it is over 11 metres tall and 66 metres wide – the length of three tennis courts, I’m told.
It was commissioned by the Japan Racing Association at a cost of 3.2 billion yen (US$28 million). The giant screen can be found at a horse-racing track in Tokyo. The long screen can be divided into three areas do that punters can see races happening in other parts of the racetrack.
