BenQ has offered up a palm size projector in the past that was decent enough, even if it wasn’t particularly bright. The company has announced a new palm-size projector pushing into the second generation called the Joybee GP2 Mini Projector.
It’s not as high tech as the OmniTouch or the Sixthsense, but the Monolith case for the iPhone 4 is still innovative. Not only does it protect your phone, it also acts as an external battery pack and has a built-in projector.
Great minds do think alike. I’m sure some of you still remember the Sixthsense wearable computer by Patti Maes and Pranav Mistry. Here’s an very similar concept device that uses different hardware to arrive at the same functionality.
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.
Fireworks projectors are nothing new, although I must admit I didn’t know they existed until today. But while the projector that made its rounds on the Internet a couple of years ago was meant to be enjoyed indoors while stationary, this projector only measures 10″ x 6″x 3.5″ and only weighs 1lb.
These ties are perfect for the geek that needs to dress up, now and again. The Space Invaders Silk Ties are made by UK neckwear makers Projector and they come in a variety of different colors, infusing a bit of style into any geek’s attire.
We may not have impossibly thin phones with holographic displays just yet, but we still live in pretty modern times. Just take a look at one of Nikon’s newest digital cameras, the Coolpix S1200pj. Aside from the usual picture- and video-taking features, the S1200pj also has a built-in LED projector.
Men, here’s a quick tip: ask women any question, just don’t ask her what her weight is. (Unless, of course, you want to be bombarded with a hundred and one follow-up questions as to why you’re asking her and why you’re so mean and insensitive and if you think she’s fat and all that..)
About six months ago I installed a home theater in my game room upstairs. I used a big 120-inch screen and a projector. At first, I wanted a projector that could do 3D, but the choices were very limited and since I would be using it for 2D movies more than anything, I wanted 1080p resolution too and there were mostly only 720p 3D offerings at the time.
With the gaggle of touchscreen-equipped buttonless gadgets coming out every second, I was mildly shocked at the sight of Aiptek’s MobileCinema D20. But don’t let it’s retro looks and form fool you, this boombox is one versatile fella, blasting both audio and video on the go.
I haven’t seen the use for a dedicated camcorder in a while, but this latest HD Handycam from Sony actually sports a built-in 60-inch projector into the back of its LCD, making it interesting for people wanting to share what they record immediately.
I know that there are many business users that travel all around giving presentations for one thing or another. If you’re one of these people, or have sat through any of them you know that a projector is almost always required for a bunch of folks to see what you are showing at one time.
This may well be the coolest Kinect hack I have seen yet, despite the fact that it serves no purpose. I can only imagine how awesome this would be as a Halloween decoration. The geeks behind this hack took a Kinect and a spherical display from Pufferfish and hacked them together.
I am in the middle of putting together an epic home theater in my game room that I have finally wrestled from the control of the wife and kids. I am putting in a projector and a freakin’ 10-foot wide screen of glorious gaming goodness.
Hammacher Schlemmer is one of those sites that has some really cool gadgets and gizmos, but they are often crazy expensive. A new gadget has been added to the store that isn’t so expensive, cool called The Camcorder Projector.
