Smartwatches may be the next big thing, but in Japan Epson appears to be making a killing off of its Smart Canvas, a line of limited edition wristwatches with E-ink screens and licensed pop culture themes.
A short while back, Sony released their take on the wearable 3D display, with their futuristic HMZ-T1 3D Goggles. Now, Epson has jumped onto the 3D head-mounted display bandwagon with their decidedly more subtle Moverio BT-100 goggles [JP].
If you have an iPhone or other iOS device, you have probably wanted on more than on occasion to shoot some of the content you have on that smartphone onto a much larger screen. You can put the content onto the TV in your home with an AV cable or a speaker dock, but it you want a really big image, a projector is what you need.
This new electronic paper display from Seiko Epson crams an astounding 1600 x 1200 resolution into a 6.7-inch diagonal screen. That’s nearly 2-million pixels in a device that’s about the size of a letter-sized sheet of paper folded in half.
If you’re looking for a really big screen, say larger than 70-inches, the only way to go (unless your a squillionaire) is with a front projector. Even then, full 1080p resolution was still too expensive for most to afford, but Epson plans on changing that with this new projector.
The new Epson EMP-TW1000 is a front projector which features a native 1080p (1920×1080) resolution LCD panel.
The projector features HDMI 1.3 inputs for digital signals, and supports true 1080p inputs. In addition Epson’s new color engine is said to produce a color gamut that’s 115% broader than NTSC standards.
Epson Japan and design firm Industrial Facility have completed a collaboration to rethink the design of portable color printers and the result is quite striking.
These new portable printers feature an integrated carrying handle and can run on batteries.
