  • Congratulations! A quick interview with the Adapt 450 Pro World Cup competition winner.

    Despite a disappointing World Cup (unless you're from Holland!) there is still one English winner. To celebrate the release, and popularity, of the Adapt 450 Pro we set a competition to see how you would use the Worlds first micro projector with in built Digital TV and 150 inch screen to watch the football.

    Congratulations go to Gordon, from Selby - who gave us the best answer. He proved that even though we wouldn't end up watching the football, we could always use the Adapt 450 Pro for so many other things. Gordon wins a FREE Gorilla Tripod worth £30!

    Want to read the original blog, you can can click here. Or, keep reading to see my quick interview with Gordon.

    Katie

    Congratulations on winning the tripod! What made you enter the Adapt 450 Pro World Cup competition?

    Gordon

    Thank you very much. I was told by a friend to read the Adapt 450 Pro blog and leave a comment, and by doing so I would be entered into the competition. I thought why not, and if I win I can put the tripod to good use.

    Katie

    How do you feel knowing you've won?

    Gordon

    I feel honored, and also excited as I've never won anything before.

    Katie

    It was a really thought out answer. But, you mentioned that you're not a football fan, did you watch the England games at all?

    Gordon

    Yes I watched parts the game against Germany to see if we made the final 16

    Katie

    The competition was to celebrate the release of the Adapt 450 Pro - The worlds first 100 lumen pico projector with on board Digital TV, 1.5hour battery, USB and SD card connections, 150 inch screen and 4w speakers. What is your favourite feature?

    Gordon

    The built in Digital TV has to be my favourite feature, as it means you can free up space where your TV would be and get a bigger picture.

    Katie

    You are obviously a keen movie fan. Can you tell me the ideal situation you'd use the Adapt 450 Pro for?

    Gordon

    I'd definitely use the Adapt 450 Pro for watching films. It's got the large cinema style screen feel, it won't cost you £15 to sit next to the annoying person opening sweets, and bobbing up and down of peoples head as they let someone out to use the loo. Also I'd use it for going on Xbox Live. The size of the screen helps a lot. You can see that sneeky enemy far quicker, plus it'll draw you into the game and give you feeling that you are actually there.

    Katie

    Well thanks for your time Gordon! Don't forget to tell all your friends about your win!!

    Gordon

    Thanks Katie, I will.

  • Glossary

    Not everyone knows as much about projectors as we do - after all, we are experts. That's why we've put together this quick glossary. Once you are confident with the lingo, you can visit our guide to buying a projector and the comparison guide of our most popular products.

    Seen a word and don't know what it means? contact us and we will add it to the list for you.

    LED - Light Emitting Diode. They are tiny lights that replace bulbs, they last longer and are brighter.

    Lumens - These measure the brightness of the projectors LED's. The higher the number of lumens the brighter the projector.

  • The future of projectors: SixthSense technology

    Take a look at this amazing video by Pranav Mistry, who talks about using a projector in a SixthSense way. He has developed technology which use gestures to interact with technology.

    About this talk

    At TEDIndia, Pranav Mistry demos several tools that help the physical world interact with the world of data -- including a deep look at his SixthSense device and a new, paradigm-shifting paper "laptop." In an onstage Q&A, Mistry says he'll open-source the software behind SixthSense, to open its possibilities to all.

    About Pranav Mistry

    Pranav Mistry is the inventor of SixthSense, a wearable device that enables new interactions between the real world and the world of data.

    What we think

    Pico projectors have so much potential to be used with technology such as this. They have already been combined with other technologies (the Adapt 450 Pro includes on board digital TV) and the opportunities are endless.
    The number of outlets this could be used for is astounding too. If it were to be used in schools, students could interact with the subject in a whole different way for hands on learning.
    Businesses could share and update information quickly and easily, a portable touch screen for business on the go.
    And even personal use, the popularity of portable devices such as the iPhone or iPad have already proven that there is a high demand for information on the go. And lets face it, you would look so much cooler using this.

    Our favourite bit? Definitely when he flicks the information onto his computer screen!
