But how many had an Android heart beating within?</p> <p><strong>Er&hellip; none?</strong><br />Exactly. The Odin projector by the oddly named Dos Owls is a miniature, battery-powered projector with quad-core internals capable of powering Android 4.4 KitKat completely independent of any other device.</p> <p>That means you can run Netflix, browse the web, play games and work on documents, using nothing but the projector itself.&nbsp;</p> <p>One yard from a wall will give you a 25in image, while 10 yards bumps that up to a whopping 250 inches.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s even got two 4W speakers, and two USB ports, making it a self-sufficient portable media powerhouse.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" mozallowfullscreen="" src="https://sketchfab.com/models/5d2e8aec3baf4623a1625db34f71225b/embed" webkitallowfullscreen="" width="640"></iframe></p> <p><strong>That&hellip; that actually does sound pretty useful.

The 854 x 480 resolution won&rsquo;t blow you away either, although a two hour cord-free battery life should be enough to stream a couple of episodes on Netflix before you need to recharge.</p> <p>Not the best projector specs in the land then, but this isn&rsquo;t exactly supposed to replace a high-end fridge-sized home cinema projector.

There was still quite a lot of light seeping in from the show floor so the image on the wall lacked just a touch of punch, but the awesome crispness and detail meant it was instantly recognisable as Ultra High Definition.</p> <p>Sadly, all we got to see was the trailer, so our enjoyment was short-lived, but it was still more than enough to get the excitement receptors tingling.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-3026406417001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="3026406417001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

Then there are two small sections either side that contain speakers (although for our demo the projector was hooked up to a set of seperate ceiling-mounted speakers). And at either end there are sections that act as cabinets for your other electronics - think PS4, Blu-ray player, home cinema amp, etc.</p> <p>Although Sony wouldn&#39;t confirm it we&#39;re pretty confident that the system will be modular, so you can do without the speaker sections if you&#39;re connecting to an external system or add more of the component storage units if you&#39;ve got loads of sources.</p> <p>Essentially, it&#39;s all remarkably thoughtful, clever and neat, and we want it in our house right now. The only problem is the price - US$30,000-US$40,000 (RM98,175 - RM130,900).

We&#39;re not just talking video, though - using an array of sensors built into the lamp it&#39;s actually possible to manipulate the interface so that you can look at photos, surf the web or check out any number of widgets. It&#39;s got to be the easiest and coolest way to check the news headlines while chowing down that we&#39;ve ever seen.</p> <p>We also saw a mirror that doubles-up as a display for news feeds, magazines and the like, and a pair of ceiling-mounted projectors that could create a sun-roof style vibe for your lounge. Best of all the devices could be synchronised to the same theme, whether that be a desert landscape or a tropical underwater vista, with the intention being to create a relaxing environment.</p> <p>Whether any of those extra gadgets ever make it to shops remains to be seen, but the creative thinking alone deserves a big round of applause.</p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ces-2014/ces-2014-all-biggest-stories-so-far/feature" target="_blank">CES 2014 - the biggest news so far, live from Las Vegas</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony Smart Life UX" alt="Sony Smart Life UX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSC02691.JPG?1389612434" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony Smart Life UX" alt="Sony Smart Life UX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSC02695.JPG?1389612434" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="4912" height="3264" title="Sony Smart Life UX" alt="Sony Smart Life UX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSC02713.JPG?1389612434" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-4"> <div class="field-label">Image #4:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_4" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony Smart Life UX" alt="Sony Smart Life UX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSC02706.JPG?1389612434" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 2014 CES Hot Stuff Award winner </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ces-2014/2014-ces-hot-stuff-awards-winners-meet-10-best-launches-show/feature" target="_blank">The Sony 4K Ultra Short-Throw Projector is one of our 2014 CES Hot Stuff Awards winners &ndash; click here to read about the rest</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/sony/ces-2014/eyes-sonys-amazing-4k-ultra-short-throw-projector/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/sony/ces-2014/eyes-sonys-amazing-4k-ultra-short-throw-projector/news#comments 4K CES 2014 Projectors Sony Sat, 11 Jan 2014 04:24:22 +0000 Nigel Yap 1431018 at http://www.stuff.tv 4K at IFA 2013: all the highlights http://www.stuff.tv/my/ifa-2013/4k-ifa-2013-all-highlights/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A look at the finest Ultra HD gear this year’s show had to offer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="4K at IFA 2013: all the highlights" alt="4K at IFA 2013: all the highlights" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/LG_ULTRA_HD_OLED_TV_01.jpg?1386624512" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Ultra HD video has been a major theme at this year’s <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/ifa-2013">IFA</a>, with each of the major manufacturers pulling the wraps off at least one killer 4K-compatible product.

HDMI 1.4, which you’ll find on most TVs, supports 4K but only at 30fps; 2.0 on the other hand supports up to 60fps.</p> <p>Panasonic also made a bid for the show’s zaniest 4K product with its 20in 4K Windows 8 tablet. Priced at almost US$6,000 (RM19,971) and featuring a battery life of just two hours, this 3840 x 2560 slate is plenty powerful – but don’t expect to see many on your morning commute.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Panasonic L65WT600" alt="Panasonic L65WT600" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Panasonic-TX-L65WT600E-angle-4K-800x600.jpg?1386624512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LG throws a 77in curve ball </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Like squabbling sibling rivals, Korean companies LG and Samsung are constantly trying to one-up each other by making the biggest telly. And at this year’s IFA LG will feel it has gained some sort of victory by unveiling&nbsp;– wait for it – the world’s first 77in curved OLED Ultra HD television. The mammoth wraparound set is a prototype and thus doesn’t have an ETA or price, but we’d expect to see the impressive technology on show put to good use in future LG screens.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="LG 77in OLED 4K TV" alt="LG 77in OLED 4K TV" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lg-4k-oled-77in.jpg?1386624512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung arrives at the OLED 4K party </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Samsung unveiled its own Ultra HD OLED screen, but at 55 inches – and remaining resolutely flat-faced – it doesn’t quite match up to LG’s TV in terms of headline-grabbing potential. Still, considering OLED screen sizes topped out at about 12 inches a few years ago, it’s heartening to see companies finally delivering the goods (albeit in prototype form) on the display size front.</p> <p>And speaking of size, Samsung had a couple of giant LCD 4K screens to show off. At 98in and 110in, they’re aimed at the commercial market rather than your living room – which perhaps makes sense given that you’d need a living room the size of an aircraft hangar to house one comfortably.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sony’s 4K projector and camcorder </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sony has always been at the forefront with 4K televisions, but at IFA this year the firm’s focus was on other Ultra HD products, namely the VPL-VW500ES home cinema projector and FDR-AX1 camcorder.</p> <p>The projector, which has a resolution of 4096 x 2160 and creates its picture with Sony’s tried and trusted SXRD tech, supports HDMI 2.0 and its Super Resolution 4K upscaling software promises to “dramatically” boost 1080p Blu-ray quality. It’ll be on sale at the end of October, priced at £8,500 (RM41,630).</p> <p>The FDR-AX1 is Sony’s first 4K camcorder pitched at consumers rather than pros (although at £3,800, it’s far from impulse buy fodder). It can squeeze up to two hours of 3840 x 2160 4K footage on a 64GB XQD memory card (there are two slots) and also records in full HD. There’s a 20x optical zoom lens on board – although we reckon future Sony 4K camcorders may well support the company’s range of A- and E-mount camera lenses.</p> <p>Sony also announced that existing owners of <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/stuff-cool-list-2013-4k-now-ready-conquer-your-living-room/feature">Bravia X9 4K TVs</a> would receive a firmware download adding HDMI 2.0 support.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony VPL-VW500ES" alt="Sony VPL-VW500ES" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-4k-projector.jpg?1386624512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="FDR-AX1" alt="FDR-AX1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-fdr-ax1-camcorder.jpg?1386624512" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Toshiba reveals “budget price” for 4K TV </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Toshiba had a quiet IFA on the 4K front, showing off only a 50in prototype TV.
