Panasonic 152-inch 4K2K Plasma HDTV

Consider knocking down a non-load-bearing wall (though maybe remortgage your house first): Panasonic have brought an "ultra-large" 152-inch plasma HDTV to CES 2010.  The display isn't just special because of its whopping 4K x 2K resolution but because it'll also show Full HD 3D as long as you're wearing the proper glasses.  We stopped by Panasonic's booth to check the monster out.
