Toshiba are set to launch their 55-inch, 4K resolution 3DTV in Japan. The 55X3 will cost 900,000 yen (or $11,578 US) on December 10th. There's no current North American shipping date, so you can get a mop for your drool while I prep the next bit to this news.

Back? Ok good. The 55X3 is super-high res, 4K resolution and autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D that adjusts for its viewers' location based on face tracking technology, although the resolution drops to 1280x720, which is quite pathetic considering the screen's native res.

Power consumption is quite high, at 410W and just 0.12W when in standby mode. The beast weighs in at 30kg.
