Let's start with the baby-sized HDTVs. At the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nev., Panasonic unveiled its enormous, 150-inch plasma unit. Also known as the Life Screen, this HDTV is around 11 feet wide. Sound too big for your house? Well, perhaps you can tilt it to get it in the door. After all, it's only one inch (2.5 centimeters) thick [source: Fermoso].

If you can't quite imagine an 11-foot TV screen, consider this -- the Life Screen has the same display real estate as nine 50-inch plasma TVs. It also sports 3,996 by 2,160 pixel resolution for crisp images [source: Mahoney]. That's nearly 9 million pixels of pure HDTV goodness.

But you can't just run out to a local superstore and load one of these giants onto your flatbed truck. Remember, Panasonic's previous monster plasma TV was only 103 inches and it sold for around $70,000. There's no official word from the company on pricing for the Life Screen, but suffice it to say, if you have the kind of money you'd need to buy one, the company may contact you first.
