Hitachi releases 1.5" thick LCD TVs

One of the biggest advantages of newer TVs, particularly LCD TVs, is the space they can save you with their much thinner profiles. Hitachi is pushing that advantage even further, with a new line of LCD TVs that is a mere 1.5 thick. This is the first such TV of its type to make it to market, which Hitachi is probably very proud of.

The new displays range from 32 to 42, and will initially only be available in Japan. A display that thin of that size is impressive, and I wouldn't mind seeing that same technique being applied to computer LCDs as well. While these units are the first to market with that thickness, there are even thinner ones on the horizon, with some displays measuring in at barely above three quarters of an inch thick.

Maybe the concept of a paper-thin display isn't that far from reality.
