Just think... years and years down the line... that thing will be obsolete.

Sitting in the back of a Goodwill with a 45 dollar price tag.

Damned great great great grandchildren are gonna have it so good.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the idea of controlling a Super Mario Brother as tall as I am.

Huh...interesting thought. It would be great for the Wii though. Some realistic Wii sports...

I'd settle for last years 103" model myself...

I played Silpheed on a projector just two days ago. It felt like Cosmonova. Almost.

The problem is, you'd have to sit like a hundred feet away in order to be able to comfortably see everything, so why not just get a smaller TV that you can sit closer to? You'd have the same perceived screen size without the cost and trouble.

Is the 150" TV meant for home use or is it designed for use in something like a stadium or auditorium instead?

It's meant for my home use.

Actually, who knows. I seriously doubt we'll see it in stores or anywhere soon. The 108 inch tv they had at last year's CES is not for sale, either.

Maybe it's like those giant cookies they bake for events. Sure they're edible, but they don't sell them.

Can't wait to see the 200 incher

I agree! When I was a kid I'd put my eyes as close to my 9" set as I could... sometimes when I blinked my eyelashes would brush the tube. O_O It works! That screen was HUGE. lol

That monstrosity was here in Houston a bit ago. To be honest I'd rather have a modest out of the way home, paid off, than that thing.

I'm gonna guess that Wii Sports wouldn't look too hot on that television.

At $70K, it better be. ;)

If you can afford $70,000 for a television, I'm guessing they deliver.

Neither...it's just a 'see what we can do' design. it's meant to be a tech demo of sorts...

it would be cheaper to just buy front row tickets to the superbowl.

hell, seats up in the penthouse with free drinks would be cheaper

I'm expecting Ted Danson to do a commercial for this thing, in character as Gulliver, from the aweful Gulliver's Travels NBC mini-series. :-/

That's all it is? I was guessing in the area of $150,000. Well, if you have a house with a living room that's large enough to fit it, chances are you can afford 70k. :)

Just get a projector, it's a heck of a lot cheaper.

Wow...that is insane...even though I'd much rather big up a HD projector..I wouldnt pass one of these suckers up if I won it lol. Imagine playing games with characters bigger than you...hot damn
