Sony reveal 16K television that is as tall as a giraffe

They are living in 3019.

Sony has unveiled an incredible, gigantic 16K television that is as tall a giraffe, and twice as long as the world's longest snake.

4K televisions are generally the highest level consumer TVs available at the moment. This absolute beast has four times as many pixels as those, and 64 times as many as a standard 1080p HD television.

This means you can walk right up to it, and the image won't look blurred.

The absolute unit measures 63ft across and by 17ft high - that's 19.2m by 5.4m.

Sadly, you won't be able to get this in your living room any time soon. It was announced at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show, which is going on in Las Vegas at the moment. The television itself is actually being installed in the city of Yokohama, for the Japanese cosmetics group Shiseido. It is so big it will span two different floors of the building.

Very little 16K footage actually exists, so Shiseido have had to produce their own video of wildlife to show on it.

Sony did previously make a 16K television which was installed at Tokyo's Haneda Airport - but that was actually made out of 16 smaller HD televisions.
