Epson MegaPlex projectors target iDevices

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 […]


Tursion TS-102 – pico projector or computer?

Once in a while, we come across a cute little device that we are not too sure just how to categorize it.

DLC Projection Screen works well even under bright light conditions

The Uchida Research Laboratory over at Tohoku University recently demonstrated a high visibility projection screen that relies on the theory of Diffused Light Control (DLC). In their parlance, “Only light from the projector is diffused towards observers, and excess external light is reflected away from observers, or it is absorbed, so there is no influence from external light, and the screen can display images to observers with the black solid […]

Sceptre offers Luna pocket projector that does MP3s as well

Being part of the convergence device brigade can be a pretty pressurizing environment – after all, you will not only need to make sure that you remain at least on par with the rest of your peers, but will also need to make a breakthrough once in a while to make sure your name is associated at being a leader instead of a follower.
