Monday, September 27th, 2010

Sim2 announced today a brand new series that will be coming soon called TEATRO. The only projector announced in this series so far is the TEATRO 80, which features HD (1920 x 1080) resolution, a 7000:1 contrast ratio, and 4500 ANSI lumens. The company has decided to use the best quality in precision glass optics. The projector has six Super High Contrast lens options that range from short throw to long throw distances. However, the company has not released yet the names of those accessories. Another major aspect is that the TEATRO 80 is able to connect to the internet and be controlled through it with out having to even touch the device. This helps users adjust the image display from a safe location, especially when the projector might be mounted on a high ceiling. Unfortunately the projector’s release date and price has not been announced yet.

A concept designer, Billy May, unveiled today his new design for a new projector phone as part of the Mozilla “Open Web Concept Phone” project. His design, called the Seabird features a touch screen cell phone that comes with not one, but two pico projectors. Each projector is capable of displaying 45 ANSI lumens and a 960 x 600 resolution. The device also comes with a digital camera and a Bluetooth ear piece that doubles as a Wi-Fi dongle and wireless mouse. The Seabird can be connected to a stand and display both a keyboard and a screen at the same time. It can also be placed on a table, and each projector displays a section of a keyboard with the screen in between them. Each projector uses IR technology in order to detect hand and finger placements. The Seabird looks really futuristic, but it is also based on many technologies that we already have. There is no word yet on if the concept will be developed further.
