It's nowhere near plasma thin and I doubt it's anywhere close to market. It's probably a FED prototype.

Thin enough for me, I think you are picking nits, I am just guessing but that looks like it is about 4 - 5 in thick. It looks like it could hang on a wall nicely or fit on a table top reasonably. If it is a CRT and has CRT blacks and contrast, that would be very interesting compared to plasma. This is why I would like to see some links and data on this.

I agree...it looks pretty thin to me...looks to be 4-5" thick. Plasmas are what...3 - 4" think? That's not too far from each other.

I remember way back in the dawn of laptop computers, there was one company making notebooks with a flat CRT screen. Apparently the guns fired from the side and the beam was guided with some sort of array of magnets. This technology was not long-lived.

I prefer black bezels and can tolerate silver, but if that beige becomes popular I may have to break the warranty and use some spray paint.

Does that TV in the picture look 14" to you?

That's not even close to 14", lmao. The article says 35 cms. Either cms is not centimeters, or it's a typo.

LG and Samsung crack me up. They support 12 different technologies and each press release hypes whichever one they are peddling as the best of the best.

Hmm...after reading both articles, they both say 35cm...so maybe that is correct. Also it says it boasts a 30% reduction.


I'm thinking maybe the 32" which appears to be only 4" deep may only be that thin at the edges...and might have a "bump" in the back that we can't see from the angle of the picture...similar to the bump on the 21" model.

Exactly,


The silver one on the left is their "Production 21" model 4:3


& the gold colored one on the right is their 32" Widescreen Prototype.


They are clearly calling this 35 cm depth...

"To be launched is the company's prototype Cybertube+SuperSlim 32" widescreen CPT that boasts of a 30 percent depth reduction. It measures only 35 cms from front to back and features a glass envelope that has a significantly shallower profile. LG.Philips Displays, the world's No. 1 cathode ray tube (CRT) display provider, will also present the new SuperSlim 21" Real Flat with the same depth of 35 cm as the 32" prototype."


Which a 30% reduction in depth means they are going from approx 20" to 14".


It seems to make sense, that way.

I find it amazing that she made that from one big piece of balsa wood.

Beats the hell outta the Frankenstein model I put together as a kid....

I can't believe nobody here has seen a CRT picture tube. The deepest

part is in the center. Where in those pics do you see the back/center

of the display? They may have some new tech, but I wouldn't think they

would show the pics and then make it 14" square in depth.


Also, there's no way of telling if those pics contain

the actual tube/display.
