Until, businesses have been touting projector as the solution to your tiny mobile device screen. Projectors sound good and all, except that you need a proper surface to get things going. Just when you thought that (projector) is the only way to go, a Huston-based startup came up with a brilliant solution. Called Spontaneous Pop-up Display, or SPUD in short, it is a solution that sits between lugging along a projector (and finding a proper flat surface) and actually bringing along a full-size monitor. Well, about the latter… SPUD is actually a 24-inch display. Continue reading SPUD Is A 24″Display For Your Mobile Devices That Slips Into Your Purse
When you talk about projectors, you probably think of a device that throws an image on a vertical, flat surface. While it is true the Sony Xperia Touch you see here fulfils the aforementioned typical projector criteria, it is not quite like your typical projector. It is an interactive Android projector that is capable of turning any flat surface, vertical or horizontal, into a 23-inch HD touchscreen and it has ultrashort throw too, meaning distance and space constraint will never be an issue, like ever. So, yeah, Xperia Touch is likely a representation of what the future projectors will be. Continue reading This Is Sony Xperia Touch, It Will Turn Any Surface Into A Touch Surface
You how Razer Chroma adds game immersion with the help of multicolor light? Apparently, that’s isn’t quite enough and surely it isn’t. It is only as immersive if the entire room, or at least what’s in front of you, is engulfed in the game and that, folks, is exactly what Razer’s Project Ariana, the future of Razer Chroma, will do. Project Ariana is essentially a high-definition, but project movies or photos, it does not; instead it leverages on its ultra-wide fisheye lens and advanced processing capabilities to bathe your gaming room with in-game elements. Continue reading Razer’s Project Ariana Want To Extend Your Gaming Onto The Room Walls
You can always trust Sony to turn out gadgets that are both cutting edge and stylish. The Sony Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector you see here is one such example that embodies the aforementioned qualities. Look wise, the product pretty much speaks for itself and as for the tech, this 2 lbs 1 oz (930g), 3 1/4″ × 5 1/4″ × 5 1/4″ (80 × 131 × 131 mm) device packs a SXRD three primary colors LCD shutter projection system, that throws out anything from 22-inch to 80-inch (50 to 203 cm) image at HD 720p quality on any flat surface of your choosing.

It looks like smartphone has reached its size limit. Anything that can’t slips into the pocket is pretty crazy, so I guess 6-inch is as far as a mobile communication device can go without making users looking dumb. But the truth is, we do need large display and until the day when smartphone is capable of projecting 120-inch display right out of its slim and small form factor, projector will be the obvious choice. Speaking of which, RIF6 The Cube seems like a good option for projection. Measuring an astoundingly small 2 x 2 x 1.9 (5 x 5 x 4.8 cm) inches and tipping the scale (or not tipping at all) at mere 136g (0.3 lbs), RIF6 The Cube is capable of throwing a 120-inch display onto any surface with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels (WVGA). Continue reading The Cube Mobile Projector Is 2-inch Tiny But Puts Out 120-inch Projection
Lets face it. However big is your phone or tablet, nothing beats the big screen, but that’s also a problem: not everywhere you go, there will be a big screen TV waiting for you. This is where portable projectors can come in really handy. Surely the market is not lacking of projectors, but today, CDW-own Magnasonic up the portable projector game with a seriously small device, dubbed Magnasonic LED Pocket Pico DLP Projector. Billed as the world’s smallest pocketable, portable DLP projector, the LED Pocket Pico DLP Projector is no bigger than an iPhone 6s Plus, measuring a diminutive 3.9 x 3.0 x 0.5 inches and tipping the scale at a mere 0.28 lbs. Continue reading This World’s Smallest DLP Projector Puts A 60-inch Display In Your Pocket
Forget about cumbersome desktop scanners, a Munich-based startup has devised a beautiful accessory that will turn today’s powerful smartphone into a scanner, well, kind off. Dubbed scanPAD, it is basically a precision machined aluminum stand that uses patent-pending suction pad to hold a smartphone overhead as it takes stills of whatever that’s place beneath it, on an A4-size surface with the same patent-pending nanotechnology pad. It is really that simple. It uses no special app or any trickery to work. Instead it leverages on your smartphone’s camera app or whatever app that you are comfortable with to snaps photos of the documents. Continue reading scanPAD Is A Big-Ass Stand That Turns Your Smartphone Into A Scanner
Star Wars series of movies aren’t exactly movies that you drink to. Popcorn, probably, but a cold one? Well, likely not a fitting scenario. I mean, it’s not like it is the big game, right? Though it would be nice if R2-D2 can bring you a drink or two as you catch up with the six Star Wars movies before hitting the theater for the seventh Star Wars flick, right? Well, in that case, you will be needing the Aqua R2-D2 Moving Refrigerator. Officially licensed, this full-size replica of everyone’s favorite astromech droid does not pack any tech from the galaxy far, far away. Instead, it has a gut that’s actually a refrigerator, albeit a rather tiny one, that will keep your can drinks chill. Continue reading This Life-size R2-D2 is Actually a Mini Fridge and a HD Projector in Disguise
If you have ever used a pico projector, you will know it is never as bright as advertised. It seems like a short fall that we have to live with, but there is a new kid in the market that claims to project at a brightness that’s nearly double that of a LED pico projector of similar lumens and it is called UO Smart Beam Laser Projector. Before we proceed, try not to let its handsome appearance distract you. Yes. I said ‘handsome’ because it is possibly the prettiest pico projector we have seen thus far and it is super tiny too, measuring mere 2.2 inches and oh, if you haven’t already noticed, it is in a cube form. Not that it matters, but it look kinda cool anyways. Continue reading UO Smart Beam Laser Projector Puts 100-inch of Crisp HD Projection in the Palm of Your Hand
