Analog Static

CES was last week.  I bet you knew that.  I bet you saw some of the ace TVs and drones that were all the rage.  I bet you didn’t see this hi-tech, low-tech screen:

It has a resolution of 74,088 mechanical pixels. That sounds impressive, until you do the math and realize that it’s only 588×126.  No 4k here.  It’s limited to a 30fps refresh rate.  Also, it’s only B&W.  And it uses over 3,000 Watts of power when all the dots are being flipped.  It’s still pretty ace though isn’t it?
