The '08 Olympics coming to Shanghai in a BIG way

Matt Burns

We're having a tough time visualizing this: a giant ball-shaped LCD screen. Whatever it ends up looking like - we're thinking like the hologram of the Death Star from A New Hope - it's going to broadcast the '08 Beijing Olympics on the Metro Tower in Shanghai. The LCD ball (or is it ball LCD - who knows) is going to be 3,000 square meters when it's completed. This monster screen is going to cost a monster amount of cash too - $23.3 million but we can't think of a better way to watch the Olympics. We can only hope that the image is in HD.
