Sud­denly that 5K iMac doesn’t seem so im­pres­sive, but you’d need a se­ri­ous TV cabi­net!

What is it? 4K TVs are so last year. If you re­ally want to be at the bleed­ing edge of dis­play tech­nol­ogy, you’ll need to go a bit bet­ter than that. Just as well, then, that Sharp has an­nounced that it’s work­ing on an 85-inch 8K TV that will set you back a cool £86,000. Sud­denly that 5K iMac doesn’t seem so im­pres­sive, but you’d need a se­ri­ous TV cabi­net to house this one! When’s it due? TBC. Why are we ex­cited? High res­o­lu­tion dis­plays are de­vel­op­ing at an as­ton­ish­ing rate, with pre­vi­ously im­pres­sive res­o­lu­tions mov­ing fur­ther and fur­ther down the scale. But do we need 8K? Is it even prac­ti­cal? Prob­a­bly not, but we’re geeks so it’s al­ready given us sweaty palms and heart pal­pi­ta­tions.
