    Yeah, I’m experimenting with that unit and finding I need to think through it a little more. One of my primary cases is showing the site on a big TV at a client’s office. At the same time, 48px text can seem a little invasive on a desktop display. Have you managed this spectrum of displays? How do you do it?

      Ah, I hadn't considered that case...seems a bit tricky.

      I haven't designed for TV, but one idea is creating a toggle switch for font size.

      You could also see if it's possible to detect TV pixel density either with media queries or JavaScript.

      TV is likely only a use case for your demos, not for the average visitor coming to your site on their own. You could use a slightly different route or query variable in the url, or use javascript to capture a key command to turn on a 'tv mode' as a workaround/hack for this use case.
