WowWee diversifies at CES: Cinemin pico PJ, new Alive Cubs and moreLast week we told you about some of WowWee’s new products. Much to our surprise that included non-robot items. Like these Cinemin mini-projectors.

They’re all designed to support your iPod or iPhone. The projector product line includes the Cinemin Swivel for $299, which features an adjustable 90-degree hinge for ceiling projection, the Cinemin Stick for handheld projections, for $349, and the Cinemin Station at $399, a base station of sorts that allows you to dock your iPod/iPhone and features embedded speakers. This entire line of projectors connect to all the iPods and most laptops.

Open Air Cinema Inflatable Projection Screen

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2008

Open Air Cinema Inflatable Projection ScreenSummer may be gone, but you can at least start planning for some fun next summer. Open Air Cinema has just released its new 16-foot inflatable projection screen that folds up easily into a 20-pound bag, making it very portable when traveling.

After the screen is fully inflated, it will remain in place and tethered using straps. Which doesn’t sound all that promising. It’s 220″ of widescreen heaven. So if you somehow survive this economy, why not have some fun next summer and fork over $999. Add some helium and give the whole neighborhood a treat.

Docomo shows off pocket cinema cell phone projector

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on October 2nd, 2008

Docomo shows off pocket cinema cell phone projectorMany of us remember when projectors were bulky things the size of a suitcase. Not anymore. Now they are phone sized. NTT Docomo is getting into the act too. They unveiled a prototype cell phone that doubles as a video projector and demonstrated it at CEATEC JAPAN 2008. The projector would give you a 20-inch image from a distance of about 80 centimeters and roughly 100 minutes of viewing time, which is enough to watch TV shows, podcasts and short films, if not 2 hour movies.

Red, green and blue LEDs are used as the light source. Pixel count is 480 × 320 (HVGA), and its luminance is 7.5lm. The power consumption is about 3W. The company plans to have a working version of the device ready for market in about three years. The way the tech in these projector phones is shaping up, I wouldn’t be surprised if it took half that time.

Meridian 810 Reference Video System

It also can deliver up to 4000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 10000:1.

Earth Trek: “world’s smallest” projector
Though it likely won’t hold the title for long, Earth Trek has christened their new 90-805R projector the “world’s smallest”. It measures roughly 4 inches X 2 inches.

The device will give you a 22-inch diagonal image, though I have no idea from what distance. It sports an SD card slot and a 3.5 mm jack A/V input, built-in lithium battery good for 1-2 hours, MP4 player and built-in speaker. Nothing on price or a date yet, but expect it very soon. Not much else to see here, move along.
