Tech blog Dvice (via On 205th) shows off the only thing that will be appearing on the PUNTE Christmas List in 2009: a 103-inch plasma television. Because I don’t want to just watch sports. I want sports to punch me in the face until my retinas bleed:
So what if Pioneer and Vizio are bailing out of the plasma biz forthwith? Now we have Bang & Olufsen, set to slam down this 103-inch behemoth this July, and it’s so honkin’ huge it weighs over a half a ton. This $137,000 extravagance has an automatically motorized stand that rises to reveal a weird-looking triangular-shaped center channel speaker (see the video after the jump), a speaker that’s part of the Beosound 5 audio system, a 7.1 home theater setup for which B&O sees fit to clip you an extra $5377. As if that $137K tariff wasn’t enough.
What’s five-and-a-half large on top of $137k? This isn’t a purchase in which your get chinsy on the accessories. If this TV came with a $12,000 ice cream maker, it’s coming with me. See a video of the TV in action after the jump.
