150-inch Plasma TV is BAM!

September 30, 2008

I have a 42-inch lcd, and it now makes me feel like I have a tiny, tiny man satchel.  What a gross imasculation it is for this to exist and for me to not own one.  Never mind that the price tag will likely be in the $150,000 area, I’ve got credit cards. I love ramen noodles; I'll survive.

Know what else I love?  When Tony Stark walks into my living room.  “Oh, hey, what’s up Tony Stark?  Me?  Oh, nothing.  I’m just snackin’ on my giant box of cheese balls.”

Giz blogger Adam Frucci got to test this monster when Panasonic unveiled it.  In his well-written piece, he quips the following which will give you a pretty good idea of what it must be like to be enveloped by this wall of sexy technology.

I've played video games on big TVs before. I visited Panasonic last year to do similar, uh, "tests" on their 103-inch plasma. And while that was awesome, it still felt like playing games and watching movies on a really big TV. The 150 transcends regular TV to become something more. It's like something out of a sci-fi movie, a living wall, a form of primitive virtual reality. It's so overwhelming that you can't really fathom putting it in your house because you can't see it fitting into any kind of reality you inhabit.
