It often takes awhile for Japanese electronics to make their way across the Pacific, if they get here at all. But Sharp bucked that trend in a big way, literally, by saying its 108-inch LCD would be shipping to U.S. shores by September.

Only last week this beast made its first commercial appearance at Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly multiplex complex , all 93.9 inches by 52.9 inches of it in full-HD 1080p resolution. Now the LB-1085 super-monitor will be intimidating Americans as well, and not just because of its imposing stature: The price, by Engadget's calculations, will weigh in around $100,000.
