Hdi Limited Intros 100-Inch 3d Laser Tv, Requires Giant Wallet to Pay for It

Damn, the day after I put that brand new 58-inch plasma TV in my living room, it’s already been made obsolete. Thanks to the guys over at HDi Limited, this mammoth 100-inch television not only is huge, it displays programs in true 3D.

The enormous television gets its illumination not from LEDs, OLEDs or CCFL lamps, but from a 3-watt RGB laser light source. The lasers are projectred through a pair of 1080p LCOS imagers and the display can crank out images at an astounding 360 frames per second per color, which is said to produce an incredibly smooth and non-headache-inducing image. And yes, you’ll still have to wear those dorky-looking 3D glasses to see the effect.

HDi recently showed off a prototype of the display, and the San Jose Business Journal reports that HDi is now working with a manufacturer in China to produce the real deal. They expect to have a few units to show off by May 2010, and to ramp up to full production by next Christmas.

The HDi 3D Laser TV is expected to sell for somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000 when it ultimately hits stores, so you’d better start saving up your pennies now.

With Sony, Samsung, LG and others all racing towards delivering the “next big thing” with 3D television, it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out over the next couple of years.
