But its quite pointless if you can believe this graph :
At a normal distance of 10+ feet you need a 80+" screen to be able to notice the extra resolution.
Actually the importance of the graph is on the left side where with higher resolution you can get closer to the screen. The farther away your are the less the effect is noted. It's when you get close that resolution really makes a difference. What I think these higher and higher resolution screens will actually offer is moving towards interactive walls in small office or apartments where multiple "windows" can be manipulated around or the entire desk surface becomes a very high resolution desktop.
Let your imaginations run wild. 9'x5' tables where different people can be interacting, playing games, pushing images around ... in short being able to have a card table that becomes a backgammon table or wild video game all with a wave of the hand and the users are sitting at it only a foot or so away.
