    "BECAUSE OF NEW TECHNIQUES in the field of electronics, airplane instrument panels and home television sets may soon have something in common -- a rectangular picture tube less than three inches thick."

    hehe, what are we down to for flat panel thickness these days? Less than an inch?

    I wonder what TV is going to look like in 50 years. My bet is on holograms.
