There's big screens and then there are big screens. Such as this set, made real through a collaboration between NHK (also known as the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation) and Panasonic; a TV that ups the ante ten-fold in what we can expect from high-definition TV's of the future. Fitted into its 145-inch display frame are a total of nearly 34 million pixels, capable of displaying a resolution of 4,320 x 7,680.
Weighing in at a whopping 600kg and with a screen the same size as nine 50” screens stacked in three rows, Panasonic's 152” full HD, 3D plasma display is a TV of magnificent proportions. On sale within Harrods' new technology department, which launched March 16 to coincide with the new iPad launch, the monster plasma will set you back a cool £600,000.

Remember that social network that you haven't used for years? Turns out Panasonic is making an app around social viewing and interconnectivity with the service, called Myspace TV, for it's Viera Smart TV offering.
Justin Timberlake, popstar and Myspace Co-owner joined Panasonic on stage to talk about the service. He spoke of being able to see what your Myspace friends are watching, and make comments through the device.
