Damn! Panasonic releases 1/3" thick HDTV

Panasonic seemed to be just going through the motions at first, and I had decided that a certain covered-up thing thing was just a barrier to block over-eager photographers from spying their new portable Blu-Ray player. No! It was a one-third-of-an-inch-thin television. The guy unveiled it at the last second and gave pretty much no info at all. It was about 40 inches, and people kept wanging into it because it was spinning.

He did mention that they have to keep the receiver separate and it works wi-fi-o-matically. I’m guessing the price is somewhere between “left arm” and “first born.”

Here’s the video so you can see it in motion, I’ll embed that as soon as it’s… ripe.
