$17,000 display is only available in Korea for now

That 55-inch TV you've been watching Netflix on is starting to look awfully small, now that Samsung has taken the wraps off its new 75-inch 75ES9000. The set, now on sale in South Korea, packs more than just a massive LED-backlit display in its incredibly thin 7.9mm deep frame.

In addition to featuring common Smart TV apps such as Netflix and Twitter, the television includes built-in wifi and a video camera that can be used for video conferencing. The camera also lets you interact with the on-screen display using hand gestures, much like Microsoft's Kinect for the Xbox 360. In fact, you can even control the TV using your voice.

All of this screen real estate and the technology behind it comes at a pretty steep price. The 75ES9000 is selling for 19.8 million South Korean won, or approximately $17,442. If you're in the market for a TV — especially one you can get now, and for less than the price of a car — be sure to check out our big-screen picks.
