LG goes retro with cool new CRT TV


Vintage-styled set gets rabbit ears, dials and sputnik looks.

PC World reports:

Do not adjust your screen! Yes, it is 2010. And yes, this is an all-new CRT display from electronics giant LG.

The cutesy 14-inch set, known as the Serie 1 Retro Classic, makes use of the now-outdated cathode ray tube (CRT) display technology.

Over the last decade, the bulky and somewhat fragile CRT technology gave way to more modern, more efficient display technologies such as plasma or LCD. However, it seems LG want to satisfy any retro vibe consumers may be having.
