Samsung is one of the many consumer electronics companies currently boasting about the size of its products at CES, the Las Vegas-based trade show that doesn’t have any women among its keynote speakers, but does have two robot strippers whose routine is described as follows: “Come watch sparks fly as the robo-twins gyrate on the pole, shake their hardware and leave everyone wondering if those double D’s are real or made in ‘Silicone’ Valley.” (Spoiler alert: They’re robot boobs.)

But that’s just one of the blatant displays of pixel-measuring tech-nerd bravado on display at CES; for another, we turn back to Samsung, and the gigantic fucking TV it unveiled yesterday. Called “The Wall,” it measures an impressive 146 inches, covering the entire wall of a room. It also uses MicroLED technology, which, as The Verge explains, is made up of thousands of microscopic LEDs, each of which produces its own light to create both excellent brightness and depth of color.

Finally, “The Wall” utilizes what Samsung calls “module-based” technology that will allow consumers to increase the size of their screens even further, should they find that even a 146-inch TV doesn’t soothe the nagging feelings of inferiority that claw at their insides like an angry cat. Anyway, here’s a bunch of nerds taking pictures of a gigantic fucking TV:

And another, with a human being for scale:

As Tech Radar reports, the technology behind “The Wall” was first introduced at last year’s CES as a prototype. But Samsung now says that this huge, and presumably quite expensive, motherfucker should be available for purchase sometime later this year.
