Indiana Jones crystal skull projector

Posted in Projectors by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2008

Indiana Jones crystal skull projector
I always knew that the crystal skulls were powerful, but I had no idea that they were projectors. Actually. this far inferior replica looks like it had stitches and has had it’s skull elongated in back. Looks like lucite. Not nearly as attractive as the skulls Indy hunts for. But you have to do what you can when Indy merchandise is few and far between, compared to Star Wars merchandise.

Still, somebody in quality control should have put a stop to this cheesy thing. It comes with a set of slides featuring famous archaeological sites and scenes from the Indiana Jones films that can be projected on a wall when inserted into the Skull. You can pre-order it now for $39.99, and it’s expected to ship in October.

Posted in CES 2008,DLP,Planar,Projectors by Darrin Olson on January 10th, 2008

Runco Video Xtreme VX-22i 1080p projector with option CineWide technologyRunco has a new addition to their lineup of Xtreme DLP projectors with the VX-22i which they are introducing at the Consumer Electronics Show this year in Las Vegas. The VX-22i is based on their popular VX-22d model but this time they’ve integrated the DHD controller into the same chasis as the projector making a one piece high-def projector to provide a theater-like experience of your own.

All of the Xtreme projectors from Runco, the VX-22i included, run a three-chip DLP implementation with a chip dedicated to each color of red, green and blue for better color with high calibration standards and THX Display certification. This model also can be optionally equipped with what Runco calls the “CineWide” and “CineWide with AutoScope”. This add-on brings another $15k to the price of the projector but gives more of a real movie theater-like display. It can show 2.35:1 CinemaScope movies and gets rid of that unattractive black bar above and below the picture that you often get when trying to view widescreen pictures, even with switching between CinemaScope wide and 16:9.

Running off of two AAA batteries the projector will display moving vistas of the Death Star, an X-wing spaceship and Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon on your bedroom ceiling.
