The Japanese engineer who invented plasma TVs has come up with a new wafer-thin version. Tsutae Shinoda’s 125-inch screen is just 1mm thick and wraps around surfaces. At just 3.6 kg, it is a fraction of the weight of a normal plasma television.
However, picture definition is still not that high. The screen boasts a resolution of only 960 x 360 pixels, but efforts are under way to improve these specs.
Industry experts say the flexible new screens will be ideal for advertising.
Meanwhile, Shinoda Plasma has plans to create a super thin 150-inch version.
