From CES 2008, Brian Tong takes a first look at the Project Kuro, an advanced-design concept plasma TV from Pioneer.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> Hey what's up guys? I'm Brian Tong with CNET, here at CES 2008. We're at the Pioneer booth, and we are checking out the Project Kuro [assumed spelling] advanced design concept plasma TV right behind me. Now Pioneer, they've been talking about their ultimate quest is to have absolute blacks, ultra thin, and an image that looks like it's floating. They're coming pretty close with this guy. Now this concept model is only nine millimeters thin, and weighs forty one pounds, where typical plasmas, they're about three and half to five inches, and weigh ninety pounds. So the design is hot. [ background music ] Now we don't know when we can expect to see these on the market, but I know you want one, I can see this floating picture in my place. It's hot. From CES 2008, I'm Brian Tong. ^M00:00:42 [ music ]
