Posted in Sanyo by Shane McGlaun on September 27th, 2010

Sanyo has a number of projectors on the market with some of them for home users and others for larger settings. The most recent projector for the company for large venues is the massive PLC-HF10000L with QuaDrive technology.

The QuaDrive tech adds a yellow element to the red, green, and blue that are inside the typical 3LCD projector. The yellow source allows for more colors and better picture quality. The projector supports 1080p resolution with a max resolution of 2048 x 1080.

Posted in Toshiba by Shane McGlaun on September 3rd, 2010

Business users who do a lot of presentations know that schlepping a normal projector around the city or an airport is no fun. The new glut of small pocket and pico projectors coming to the market promise a lot more portability, but they give up a lot in performance.

Toshiba has unveiled a new pocket projector called the Lumileo P100 that is your typical small projector. It measures 116 x 50 x 18mm and weighs 96g with the battery inside. The small projector only has 14 lumens and needs a dark room to throw its maximum 65-inch image.

Posted in DVD by Conner Flynn on August 15th, 2010

The Aiptek DVD Player Projector is clearly drawing on some powerful 50s nostalgia, looking to bring back Bakelite and chrome. If you’re looking for an LED projecting, DVD playing, Karaoke combo plastic blob that looks like something old, well here it is.

It will cost you £229.95. This portable projector produces images from the integrated DVD player up to 50″/127cm diagonally across at 480×240 resolution.

Posted in Projectors by Shane McGlaun on July 27th, 2010

There is a huge range of sizes and capabilities when it comes to projectors. You can get some huge projectors running into the tens of thousands of dollars range for use in the home. You can also get some cheap and tiny projectors for mobile users.

AAXA has unveiled a new projector that falls into that latter category called the M1 Limited Micro Projector. This projector is an updated version of the M1 that AAXA launched last year. The original version had 66 lumens of brightness.

Projector wedding ring

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2010

How do you make your wedding ring stand out these days, among all of the rest? Put a projector in it. Groom-to-be Luke Jerram worked with jewelry designer Tamrakar on this bespoke projector ring design. It has a mini lens and transparent slide with a tiny image of himself and his bride that is ‘projected’ when you shine light through it.

The image can be changed to whatever you want in there, so you aren’t stuck with just one image. Sadly, this is just a one-off design, so if you want one you are on your own.

Casio Green Slim eco-friendly projector

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2010

Casio has released the Green Slim, an earth-friendly projector that eliminates the need for a short life mercury lamp. That’s why it’s green. This projector is also being touted as the world’s first high brightness eco-friendly projector.

The Green Slim uses Casio’s Hybrid Light Source, which combines Laser and LED technology for amazingly high brightness and it can last up to 20,000 hours. The eco-friendly projectors can also be rotated 90 degrees for portrait display if you need it.

Vivitek D795WT projector redefines short throw

Posted in Projectors by Shane McGlaun on June 10th, 2010

Usually when I see a short throw projector, you still need a good six feet or so to get a reasonably large image size on your screen or wall. That’s fine and good in some instances, but if you have a really small room you might want even shorter throw.

Vivitek has a new projector that makes those other short throw units look bad. The projector is called the D795WT and the little beastie can toss a 95-inch image on the screen from only 1.3-feet away. In addition to the short throw, the projector is also 3D ready.


Samsung’s SP-H03 pocket-sized Pico projector

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2010

Samsung’s SP-H03 pico projector is tiny. About the size of a hockey puck. But that doesn’t stop it from outputting 854×480 resolution with 1GB of internal memory in the palm of your hand.

The SP-H03 weighs only half a pound. Aside from the WVGA resolution, it boasts 30 lumen brightness, microSD memory expansion up to 16GB, and 1W stereo for your media presentations. It’ll be available this month for $300. Not bad at all for those specs in a projector this small.

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2010

The Uniden ULP1000 laser pico projector is capable of displaying WVGA (848 x 480) resolution pictures and videos with a 5000:1 of contrast ratio. The Uniden ULP1000 laser pico projector also comes equipped with a unique charging station instead of the simple power adapter.

When the device is fully charged, it delivers up to two hours of operation time, which is pretty average for pico projectors right now. The ULP1000 also has a VGA port and a composite port.

Nintendo DS Stylus and Projector

Posted in Nintendo DS by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

Thrustmaster is at it again, making the scene with yet another wacky gaming accessory. What looks like a heavy and super thick DS stylus. The reason for that extra girth is that it also doubles as a projector.

It projects a picture of Buzz Lightyear, since Toy Story 3 is all the rage. Don’t worry, it still does touch-input too. The bulb even lets you control where the image is aimed at. Only £4.99 (or $7).

Projector gets strapped to a Wii-gun

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2010

Man, try not to get sick watching the video below. This projector strapped to a Wii-gun is pretty damn cool. It comes from Nirav Patel, who decided to take first-person shooting to the next level. He has combined a Wiimote Zapper, a handheld ShowWX laser projector and a gyrometer to display a screen wherever the Zapper is pointing.

Patel calls it a “glasses-free virtual reality first-person shooter,”. With it, he can look around and navigate the game-world just by moving the Zapper and using its joystick. Right now the game is running off of Patel’s laptop, with his controller tethered to it. Oh and he’s wearing the laptop on his back. I would love to see where else he can take this.


Titanium Quadband Projector Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on May 7th, 2010

If you’re looking for a projector phone and don’t care how cheap it is, the Titanium projector phone comes with a LED projector that has manual focus. It’s easy to use and navigation is a breeze. Some other features include a 2.2 inch touchscreen display, FM, stereo Bluetooth, camera and reception for analog TV.

This phone will let you enjoy MP4 movies at 80 cm size across a distance of about 2 meters. Only $217. Not bad. Even if it isn’t much of a looker.

Optoma PK301 pico projector up for pre-order

Posted in Projectors by Shane McGlaun on April 5th, 2010

I like the promise of pico projectors. You can get a much larger viewable image for movie watching, games, or presentations using one rather than a laptop screen. The reality is most of them are not bright enough to be useful in the real world.

Optoma has a new pico projector called the PK301 that is up for pre-order on Amazon. The device sells for $399.99 and you get free 2-day shipping if you pre-order.

We’ve seen our share of projection alarm clocks, but now Sony has launched a stylish new projection alarm clock of their own, the Sony ICF-C717PJ. It’s designed to project the time on your bedroom wall or ceiling and can be set to different angles.
