Taking advantage of unparalleled 8K resolution, the prototype virtual HD binoculars unveiled by Japanese broadcasting corporation NHK are the pinnacle of high resolution sight seeing.

Most people who have purchased a flat screen TV are familiar with terms like 720p or 1080p as standard high-definition display resolutions that allow them to watch their Blu-Ray movies with stunning clarity. However, many are unaware that there are even higher resolutions that are starting to creep their way into the consumer market.

The prototype virtual HD binoculars utilize 8K resolution which has 16 times the pixels of typical 1080p content (essentially making it 4320p). That means it provides a 16x zoom without losing any original data. Users will always sees a high quality HD picture instead of getting the pixelated mess that's usually associated with zooming in on moving footage. However, since it's still in development, don't expect to these high-tech binoculars hitting retail stores anytime soon.
