Few TVs will be able to display them in their full glory !
Most of us haven't got 4K yet !
The super-high definition 8K pictures offer 16 times the resolution of HD TV !
Why have they picked on those two films ?
The answer is that they were filmed in 70mm, instead of the more common 35mm film stock !
This means there is greater detail available, something 8K was made for !
My understanding is that 8K is the ultimate picture quality, anything beyond that will be undetectable by the human eye...
I believe Windows are developing new eyes for humans. These will replace the regular eyes in front which will be reinserted at the back of the head. The new eyes will be able to see 24k, but the problem with them is that occasionally you will have to reboot them in order to get the full effect. Sometimes they will freeze, occasionally they will get a virus. They may not be compatible with other organs or senses you already have, so ears, noses, may need to be upgraded.
