plasma

noun;
a new kind of television which is very thin and has a big screen. As the new kind of television is produced by making use a collection of charged particles (i.e. plasma), the television itself becomes known as a plasma TV or simply a plasma. This is an example of synecdoche in which the name of a part is used to refer to the entire object.
 
I will have a new plasma in my new house.
