Now this is just showing off. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Panasonic is demonstrating one of the biggest plasma displays that we've ever clapped eyes on - it's a massive 152-inches across.

For a sense of scale, that's the same as 22 average pencils, more than two average Irishmen, or four times the height of Verne Troyer in 6-inch platform heels. Now there's an image. Speaking of image, it's capable of displaying full 3D content in 4K x 2K resolution.

The screen doesn't need to be illuminated - the plasma itself illuminates the display four times faster than a conventional full HD panel would. It also contains a crosstalk reduction feature, which helps produce clearer 3D images by minimising the double-image that can occur with dodgy 3D displays.

As you can imagine, you can't buy the thing - it's just been created to allow Panasonic to boast. In 2008, the company built a 103-inch display, so at the rate it's going, it'll be able to build a display the size of an average African elephant next year. We look forward to it.
