ASUS - Battery built-in compact projector

ASUS unveiled the release of their palm-sized projector - S1 - for the Japanese market. It will be out on sale on July 25.

A projection technology called DLP technology is applied for the S1. Thanks to that, S1 reproduces colors better than usual LCD projectors and projects clear images with high contrast. It features an LED light source, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 30~100 inch screen size, 0.73~2.43m projection distance, and maximum luminance of 200 lumen.

S1 (resolution: 854×480) has 110.5×30.7×102mm compact body and weighs only 342g. Its body is made of aluminum. The built-in battery is 6,000mAh that allows for up to 3 hours of projection. It can be used as a mobile battery by connecting a smartphone to its USB port.

  • Price: ¥36,870
  • Size: 110.5×30.7×102mm
  • Weight: 342g

Sony Life Space UX - AkihabaraNews.com
At this month’s Life Space UX event held at Sony’s Ginza headquarters here in Tokyo, AkihabaraNews was treated to a behind-the-scenes look at what Sony’s planning for our digital living space of the future

Sony has announced the development of an extremely sophisticated small-size projector module (Pico Projector Module), that can be used to project images from smart devices such as smartphones or tablets.

It uses an image processing system, independently-developed by Sony, that uses laser beam scanning (LBS) to create crisp, high-definition and "focus-free" projection regardless of distance, angle or projection surface.

Aerial Burton has demonstrated an aerial 3D display, which can project text and images in mid-air.

"The biggest difference between our technology and other displays is, this is a screenless display. This is the only device that can show text and pictures in mid-air, without using a screen.

 

2x3D, developed by the Shirai Lab at Kanagawa Institute of Technology, is a system that lets the same screen be viewed simultaneously by people who want to watch it in 2D and 3D.

Whereas conventional passive 3D systems use polarizing filters for both the left and right eyes, this system uses a special picture-generating algorithm. Pictures for the left eye can be seen with the naked eye and only pictures for the right eye need to be viewed through a polarizing filter.
