IMAGES ARE ABOUT TO QUADRUPLE IN SIZE; HERE’S HOW THEY’LL LOOK
MUPPET BABIES PROBABLY LOOKED PLENTY CLEAR ON THE 20-INCH STANDARD-DEFINITION TV that sat in the corner of Mom’s living room in the late ’80s.

Let’s call that size the image’s breaking point. Apply the same density of color blocks to modern high-def screens, and you can figure out just how massive they could get before they’d fissure. Take a look.
