Mitsubishi’s L65A90 LaserVue 65-inch Rear Projection HDTV is the world’s first laser-powered television, and the company claims that its laser-lit DLP delivers twice as many colors as the now stupid and old LCD and plasma HDTVs.
This kitchen sink gadget from China combines a projector, media player, DVD player and video game console all in one device.
The CVGI-E28 projector is a low-cost LED based projector that’s got all sorts of stuff built in.
In a breakthrough that will undoubtedly lead to more expensive LCD TV models that people like me can only dream and write about, electronics giant Sharp has developed a 5-primary-color LCD display that will supposedly lead to more lifelike images.
Remember the old Nintendo Game & Watch LCD games from back in the 1980s? These early handheld video games have always had a bit of a cult following, despite their primitive, repetitive graphics, and drab monochromatic screens with cheesy color overlays.
Have too many video devices and not enough HDMI inputs on your TV? Octava’s multi-input converter device accepts regular component and VGA inputs and converts them to HDMI. Even better, it also has space for 3 HDMI inputs, meaning you can switch between 5 inputs on a single HDMI cable.
I can imagine how a streaming service can send movies, HDTV, and high-quality music to homes, but games as well? Hmmm. That’s what XStreamHD claim they will provide, apparently via Care Bear satellite beams.
Seriously though, XStreamHD’s got a lot on their hands, and I’m not just talking about their patent-pending technologies.
Taiwan-based Ultmost Technology makes all sorts of gadgets, from talking tire gauges to automatic Muslim prayer watches. But they also have A/V equipment, like the Fuss LC-4212 B 42″ LCD TV. Perhaps because there are already hundreds of LCD TVs out in the market, Ultmost Technology tried to make their product stand out.
Here’s a really big television set for those of you who have an equally large bankroll. Now if someone wanted to give me a 103-inch television set, I certainly wouldn’t complain. But with a retail price of about $130,000, this massive set seems like quite an extravagance in these challenging economic times.
Sounds like a mere glimpse of the future, but if today’s iPods can make playlists on the fly, then there’s no reason why TVs can’t suggest shows for viewers. Pocket-lint reports that Sony will incorporate a “service” – currently called Neon – on forthcoming Bravia TVs that will be able to recommend shows based on a certain number of inputs from a user.
The concept behind the TV remote control gun is simple: Boring task + gun = fun! Pull the trigger and it’ll change the channel on your TV with a satisfying gunshot sound. Okay, so it’s fun for like 5 minutes.
The Oculas Groups’ Ovei (Oh-vee) is a living room in a pod. A very stylish, air conditioned and ridiculously expensive pod.
It’s elegantly designed by Lee McCormack and beautifully engineered by McLaren Applied Technologies. Which makes me wonder why there are no images of the ovei’s interior on the product website.
The main reason why I’m looking forward to a wireless future is because wires and cables are really messy. I can set things up fine, I know how to use color codes and to match shapes and to match the male end with the female end, but the way they sprawl all over the place is really irritating.
This retro-look wooden casing houses a plasma TV. It combines mid-century modern aesthetics with modern technology to give you the best of both worlds.
At first glance, the TV looks like it belongs in one of yesteryear’s living rooms- until you realize how thin it is.
