Philips Research Creates 8mm thick display

On display at IFA — though sadly not yet out of the research labs — is a new flat panel television display that is a whopping 8 millimeters thick.  That’s about the thickness of a Euro coin, for those with Euros handy to use as a reference.  In the image above, you can see the support bracket at the bottom, and you can see the front and back of the unit reflected in mirrors at each side.  What you can barely see in the middle of the picture is the display itself!  The guts of the television live within the pedastal upon which the super-slim display sits.  No word yet when this will be brought into a product that you and I can buy.
