The new Pico Genie P50 has featured in the October edition of GQ magazine as a tech recommendation.
Pico Genie have recently released their smallest entry to the portable pocket projector category, the P50. The new unit is the smallest in the world at 40 lumens with a 2 hour inbuilt battery (projecting at full brightness) with an extensive range of connection options.
"Next time you're away on work, pack this 148g projector, which can create a 60-inch cinema screens on a wall. The P50 connects to almost any computer or smartphone."
Chromecast (CC) is a clever new concept by Google aiming to allow users to share content from Youtube, Netflix (and hopefully more to come) via a little HDMI dongle for the TV.
You think you've heard of this concept before, it's called Apple TV, right? Well, It's not quite the same as Apple TV in that it won't mirror your device's screen. Instead Chromecast will pull links from it, pulls the appropriate content from the cloud and displays it in a Chrome Browser.
At the minute there is not much in the way of content, with fragmented support from iPlayer and 4od. If you're looking for something similar that will give you full access to Android on your TV in glorious High Definition then we recommend taking a look at these little Android sticks.
You can view media content in full screen without having to be in Chrome, unlike CC, which means you can take advantage of existing apps in the Play store. Not to mention, you can also use it on a projector for a truly cinematic experience.
After Months of speculation on the next step for the iPhone, Apple have finally revealed the latest additions to the iPhone 5 range - The iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s
While the iPhone 5c is intended to be a fun, colourful 'lite' version of the iPhone 5 with a plastic back available in a variety of colours.
The iPhone 5s is arguably the more interesting of the two releases though with an inbuilt fingerprint scanner that can be used instead of a traditional phone screen lock is an interesting step for the phone giant. It looks extremely cool with the 3 metalic colour options but perhaps the best part is the 4G capability which many have been waiting for.
Everywhere we go nowadays we take along our invaluable mobile phones & with the latest iPhone 4/4S releases having cameras to rival those of the digital compacts, we’re using them more and more to record our lives. The Pico Genie A100 is the World's First iPhone/iPod Touch accessory with extended battery + projector + case + speakers. Just dock your iPhone or iPod Touch into the superbly designed Pico Genie case and start projecting the latest videos, online TV or even your business presentations straight from your iPhone / iPod Touch.
You can share content anywhere and enlarge videos/photos from a 3 inch iPhone screen to a 60 inch image on the wall, floor, ceiling desk etc. You can even watch (music) videos on louder 2W speakers built-in to the device.
With a 15 lumen DLP projector inside the casing it’s possible to project from your iPhone 4/4S/ iPod Touch up to 60 inches wherever you like. This provides a surprisingly good image even in normal daylight conditions and makes sharing videos/photos from your phone so much easier.
Personal / Holidays / Parties: Whether it’s a trip to the park or a meal with the family, record your day and project back instantly to wow everyone with the events of the day. Ever wonder what your holiday video looks like on the big screen? Imagine no longer with Pico Genie.
Travel: Going on holiday or taking a ski trip this year? Taking your iPhone with you? Don’t forget your Pico Genie! Film the sights or slopes then project them back to enjoy once you get chance to relax at the hotel, in the bar or just project them back for friends and family back home.
Business: Are you always on the go, making presentations and carrying lots of heavy bags? Why not store your content on the iPhone4/4S/iPod Touch and project back anywhere, even on the train.
Education: Who says learning has to be done in a classroom? Education on the go is possible with the Pico Genie – its ideal for class trips or just record that cool art project on your phone then project it back for the whole class to enjoy.
Don’t forget the Pico Genie doubles up as a case too and is ultra lightweight so it’s a perfect compliment for your favourite phone or iPod Touch. The Pico Genie A100 also doubles up as a battery extender for your iPhone/iPod Touch providing an added 3 hours of use so you’re less likely to run out of battery power again. If using the projector only, the battery provides 1.5 to 3 hours projection.
All of this straight from your phone, made possible by Pico Genie.
We've all done it, taken some photo’s promised to upload them later instead of share them on such a small screen and forgotten they exist. 3M’s new CP45 Camcorder Projector puts an end to that, it’s the first device of its kind to make it easy to shoot and share stunning HD (720p) videos and 5mp photos with the touch of a button. What that all means in plain English is you just press one button, record your videos or photos and then project them anywhere on a super sized screen at up to 65 inches (diagonally) so everyone in the room can see it rather than just the 3 people stood looking at the 3” camcorder screen – pure genius!
The real unique bit here though is the projector itself which projects an awesome image. Previous generations of this type of device have kicked out a very low image however 3M have developed their own projection system which is truly stunning and is more than twice the power of anything else we’ve seen on any other camcorder projectors.
With this type of convergence expect this to be on top of many people’s Christmas list this year as you get the best of both worlds with a superb HD camcorder (like the flip cam) but with a genuinely impressive pico projector inside as well.
There’s no need to worry about fiddly wires or uploading simply switch on, record and project almost instantly directly from the device.
The unique lens and driver mean that you can project at 20 lumens with minimal effort and battery time is great at up to 150 minutes recording or 100 minutes projection per charge. It’s also small and light so you can easily slip it into your bag, just like you would a standard camera.
It’s packed with other useful features like 2GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 32GB Micro SD), speaker, microphone & LED flash to make your experience even more enjoyable. Best of all this is a really simple camcorder to use with easy connection via USB so you can quickly download captured content to share on your favourite devices.
It’s time to redefine how you use a camcorder…
Having a built-in projector inside a camcorder helps redefine how you use one and helps you get the most out of it. There are endless possible applications for sharing…
Personal / Holidays / Parties: Use to capture precious moments from home, weddings or on holiday and share them instantly with friends & family for everyone to enjoy. Could be great for this year’s Xmas party!
Sports: We used this on a golf course, filming friends’ hits (& misses!), played them back at the 19th hole and used it as our own personal golf analysis tool so we could see just how badly we’d done, and it helps to correct mistakes next time.
Business: Do you travel around a lot, perhaps making a lot of presentations? Film your content on the go with the CP45 and project back anywhere.
Education: Make learning fun by filming/ photographing lessons, play, football matches etc and projecting them back to share with the class all the progress that’s been made.
Coming this Thursday, the Camcorder Projector CP45 is available with the stylish black accent for £299.99. Overall, it’s the best camcorder projector on the market to date and is a worthwhile gadget for business, personal use or travel.
