If there is one thing that seems to move at a very fast clip, it is technology. It seems as if something that is new today is old by the time the day is over. We see it with the computers we use, the tablets and our smartphones. One other way that we have seen technology move forward is with our televisions. Not only are they more sophisticated today, but they are also bigger and better than ever.
If you are someone who loves being entertained by watching shows or movies on a large screen, I’m about to blow your mind. Perhaps you can remember the day when a smaller screen was acceptable, or perhaps you can even remember back far enough when we used to sit across the room and watch a 19″ screen (and that seemed huge). Samsung has just upped the bar when it comes to size by showing off their latest creation at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Could you imagine having a television screen in your home large enough to be a movie screen? The new TV by Samsung is 219 inches, which is more than 18 feet! It is so big that they are calling it ‘The Wall’ and our lives are never going to be the same again. Admittedly, this TV might not fit easily into a standard living room but if your home is big enough, you might just have to start charging admission on your family movie night.
Perhaps one of the first questions most people ask is about how much energy this would take to run. Believe it or not, it isn’t all that much. It takes advantage of a technology called ‘micro LED’ and it uses less energy than the TV you already have in your home. At the same time, the image will be brighter.
If you are sad now because you can’t fit an 18-foot screen in your living room, all is not lost. Samsung also is offering a 75-inch version of the TV. It’s plenty big enough and if you really want to have some fun, you can snap them together and create a bigger screen.
Samsung isn’t alone when it comes to new technology 75-inch TVs. They are also coming out from TLC, Hi-Sense, and Sony.
In the end, the 75-inch version looks amazing but The Wall is a dream come true.
