You feel like the man after saving up for that brand new, $10,000 3D TV, which is clearly the best thing on the market. Right? Well, we advise you to take a seat, because this new television technology may have you sick to your stomach.

That’s right, your 3D TV is now obsolete.

Television technology is moving so rapidly, those of us who still have a basic flat screen are completely behind.

The new technology is called 4K, and features ultra-high definition that is four times as sharp as your typical 1080p television.

Sony has released an 84-inch model, the Sony KD-84X9005 4K TV, which is retailing for £25,000 at Harrods in London.


The giant screen can convert ordinary television into 3D, and comes with five pairs of glasses for viewing the pin-sharp images.


The non-3D images are up to 16 times sharper than those of a normal television.

The problem is, not every program is recorded in ultra-high definition, meaning that your TV will not be able to live up to its potential until the equipment changes on the production side.
