It's becoming more common for projectors, receivers and other devices to support 4K2K technology, but before you go bumping up to the next big thing, you may want to check out the next bigger thing - UHDTV. Ultra high-definition television is absolutely ridiculous.  You're getting a resolution of 7680 × 4320, which equates to over 33 million pixels on the screen at once.  If that doesn't shame your 1080p set, nothing will.

Researchers working on UHDTV have finally agreed upon the technical standards required to move forward with the project - something 3D manufacturers have yet to do - and are working hard to perfect the technology.  They're even promoting it this year by setting up prototype UHDTVs around the world to showcase the Olympic Games.

The folks at the ITU Study Group on Broadcasting Service are quick to point out that UHDTV is more than just a new fancier resolution.  It could pave the way for emerging technologies like glasses-free 3D, which needs as many pixels as it can get.
