Click to viewMitsubishi put together quite a spectacle to introduce its Laser TV last night at the Moon Nightclub at The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, unveiling a 65-inch rear-projection set that uses a unique laser backlight. The result is some of the most vivid color we've ever seen on any TV, especially the primary colors of red, green and blue. The blacks were midnight-dark, too, and there was even a 3D version of the TV (goofy glasses required) that only made us slightly cross-eyed. Mits officials said to look for the TV to appear on the market "later this year" at an undisclosed price, and added that it will cost about the same as flat panel TVs of the same size. On the next page, let's explore how this laser backlight works and gawk at a slightly NSFW gallery.

When pressed for details, they kept repeating their mantra about laser being the "purest light source," but from what we could see, we think it must have something to do with hot-looking dancing girls, frickin' lasers, smoke and maybe even mirrors. We were taking shots of the TVs, but all these women kept getting in our way. Oh, well.

@deathscent: In printed or mixed color, Yes, Yellow is a primary color. Cyan, Yellow, Magenta and Black are primary colors used for printing, but with kid's crayons it's usually thought of as Red, Yellow and Blue. However, when you're dealing with light it's a different story. White light breaks down into Red, Green and Blue.

My main issue with a laser TV is for the eyes of the viewer. Imagine whatever TV you're watching without the picture tube, just the backlight. Most LCDs and plasmas use a fluorescent backlight. This isn't so bad, but if you watch TV a lot it's like staring at a fluorescent light bulb all day long. that's not good for your eyes as it is. Now, imagine staring into a laser beam all day long. Sure it looks good, then you get involuntary lasik.
