Recycle CRT glass into modern "gamer-sized" CRTs

Did you know CRT glass is sitting in recycle bin warehouses and just sitting there? Why?

Because you can't break down CRT glass. The only thing you can recycle CRT glass into is other CRT glass

Now flat displays of many types are in demand, but that's mostly the movie watching community.

If you look at any serious video game tournament, the competitors use 15 to 18 inch CRT if 4 x 3 and 22 to 26 in CRTs if 16 by 9. They don't play their game footage in Jumbotrons.

It's probably safe to assume that there's more video game-playing CRT enthusiasts than there are Laser Disc CRT enthusiasts

Also ecologically, the energy use of CRTs vs Flat screens are on par with each other. . UNTIL you get to 18-20 inches. Then it exponentially increases when linearly adding a diagonal inch.

Since more economic demand is in gamer sized, and less electricity strain on gamer sized, let's clear up those recycle warehouses, and make HDMI input 16x9 CRT TVs and monitors that can do real optical light guns

Those Wiimote guns are not very accurate. They are "relatively" accurate, but not " absolutely" (Pixel-for-puxel accuracy). The only HD CRTs available are 35 inches 16x9 and only do 1080i.

Very few people wanted to hire the local football team to move that stuff.

And games have delay anyway with progressive to interlace conversion.

The CRT glass is just sitting there. Just take it.
