Shinoda Plasma Japan has come up with a new prototype film-thin giant plasma display, and despite it being 2 meters tall and 3 meters wide, it measures a mere 1mm thin. This is made possible by joining half a dozen sheets of film, and consumes less than half the electricity of what current models of comparable size from other companies do. Shinoda Plasma has plans to sell the sheets to electric appliance makers for approximately 5 million yen ($51,010) a pop, and hopes to see these new products in the market this autumn. Despite being so thin, they won’t be light though as the display unit itself tips the scales between 80kg and 90kg.
