01/05/2012, A HTPC (Home Theater PC) is one diminutive machine which will sit quietly in your living room, ensuring you de-stress from a hard day’s work at the office. Well, the BryteWerks Model One is an interesting idea that has already rolled off production lines, where it will function not only as your resident HTPC, but will also come with a built-in High Definition projector as well. I do wonder what […]
11/23/2011, Tiny projectors are all the rage right now – gone are the days where projectors required a large surface area and ample distance from the wall or projector screen to function. To add to the list of such projectors, BenQ has a new model called the Joybee GP2. A successor to the GP1, it features the same black and white housing, but features enhancements such as an intuitive UI, 720p […]
11/09/2011, So you have a 3D capable HDTV sitting in your living room, but what happens when you feel that the viewing real estate is not large enough to accommodate what your eyes (and that of visitors) demand? I suppose the next logical step would be to acquire an even larger 3DTV, but assuming you maxed that out during your previous purchase, what other alternatives do you have to fall back […]
11/08/2011, Now here is yet another mobile projector that might be of interest to you, although of late, pico projectors tend to fail to excite the general market. After all, when was the last time that you actually saw someone making a presentation in some dark corner with a pico projector in tow? Yeah, that’s what I thought, too. Still, it somehow makes perfect sense to have a company like Dell […]
11/07/2011, The latest PJD6 Series DLP projector range from Viewsonic will comprise of a trio of projectors – where they are known as the PJD6253, PJD6223 and PJD6553w, and they are all Crestron and AMX certified. Not only that, they will also be specifically designed for both classroom and corporate environments, being equally comfortable in either environment. Boasting Crestron RoomView network management software, this software will pave the way for centralized […]
11/03/2011, Sanyo decided to team up with eInstruction so that their efforts will result in a software and projector bundle that will deliver an interactive teaching solution – or at least, that is the final goal. This tie in will see a Sanyo interactive ultra short throw projector work in tandem with industry-leading interactive educational software programs from eInstruction, supporting both Mac and Windows platforms in order to make as far […]
11/01/2011, It looks like Disney isn’t the only ones who are having fun experimenting with interactive handheld projectors. The folks over at Microsoft seem to be having a good time with them as well. In the latest Microsoft Research posting on technet, the company demonstrated its new Interactive Environment-aware Handheld Projectors on video. The demonstration showed of a few projectors, each one being used in a different purpose, which shows the […]
10/28/2011, Normally when you present something with the aid of a projector, you can end up blocking words and diagrams if you don’t position yourself carefully. Well, some folks in Japan have come up with a solution to the problem – with the help of the Kinect. A research group from Meiji University and AIST recently came up with a unique presentation system that makes use of Microsoft’s motion controller.
10/17/2011, The idea of having an invisible phone has always been the fantasy of people everywhere, but it’s not exactly the most practical of “gadgets”. We’ve had stuff like the Kinect-iPhone and now, some researchers over at the Carnegie Mellon Human Computer Interaction Institute and Microsoft have come up with something called the OmniTouch.
10/17/2011, We’ve seen our fair share of pico projectors that work decently enough for what they were created to do, but somehow they never really took off and entered mainstream consciousness since it never had a “killer app” or a “killer purpose” apart from being a novelty. Hopefully this handheld projector system that was developed by Karl Willis and colleagues at the Disney Research labs in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania will fare differently. […]
10/14/2011, If you’re looking for an iPhone case which combines a battery pack and a projector all rolled into one, the Japanese accessory maker, Century, might have just what you’re looking for in the form of the Monolith casing for the iPhone 4.
10/04/2011, I used to think that portable digital projectors would be the next big thing, but I am mistaken as the particularly niche market did not really take off as intended. Still, there seems to be enough sales volume to keep it going, and Ricoh clearly intends to fly the digital projector flag high by announcing their most recent entry with a range of portable projectors that are touted to deliver […]
09/26/2011, ViewSonic has just announced the launch of two projectors in its new portable LED projector line: the PLED-W200 and PLED-W500. Designed for folks on the go i.e. travelling business men, on-the-road presenters, the projectors feature a 20,000 hour-long lamp life and packs 3D-ready capabilities (I guess for those downtimes when you’re not presenting and want to just kick back and watch some 3D movies in your hotel). The projectors even […]
09/14/2011, If you happen to own an iPod, iPhone or iPad and use one (or all three of them) as your portable entertainment center of choice, aren’t there moments when you felt that, if only your eyes were treated to a far larger display? That’s right, while the iPad does so much better than the iPhone when it comes to viewing movies, it still maxes out at 10″ – and for […]
