Zero Creative’s 71-inch 3D LCD will make environmentalists weep


I didn’t think we were ready for strictly 3D television sets but Zero Creative seems to think so. Luckily there will be switchable versions, as it would suck to only be able to watch 3D on your nice new 71" television.



The company has created a 71-inch version of its xyZ (not xYz) lineup, a 3D LCD that sucks down an impressive 1 kilowatt when turned on. Given your average eco-friendly display tends to require something like 20 to 50 watts to bring you an image, that’s quite an energy premium to pay — and that’s on top of the €70,000 price tag (about $100,000). Of course, what those purportedly eco-friendly LCDs can’t do is give you a 3D image even without glasses, a feature that is the very specialty of the commercially-minded xyZ lineup.
