Akihabara-based company Thanko's new simplified projector for smartphone called "Sumaho de Theater" allows you to make your room a home theater at a reasonable price with no bulbs, no noisy fans, and no electricity.
It’s no Sony LSPX-W1S 4K short-throw projector, but the BenQ MW621ST DLP unit is less than 1/50th the cost, a fraction of the size, and it’s newly updated 64-inch viewing area from 1 meter (~3 feet) ain’t bad at all.
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.

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

Taiwanese company, Acer is going to release 3D compatible HD projector "H5380BD" on March 20 for about ¥60,000 in Japan.
H5380BD is a projector with 3000 lumens bright illumination for both home use and business use. It's compatible with 3D images, however, to watch 3D images, you need to separately buy the 3D glasses (E2b v2). It is possible to project images in an MHL compliant smartphone on a large screen.
