However, there is the option of having a projector to get the job done, which ought to be able to deliver a far larger viewing experience — assuming you have a wall or projection screen that is large enough, that is.

It might still be bitterly cold on the outside for those of you living in the northern hemisphere, so you might as well kill time by staying indoors and enjoying the latest movies and TV shows in the warm indoors. The Epson Home Cinema 3700 will be able to get the job done, and then some.

Projectors are nothing new these days, although the kind of technology that goes into them have definitely improved by leaps and bounds. As we get to enjoy clearer, brighter images with a higher resolution count, all rolled into a body that is more portable, how many projectors do you know out there that are brave enough to explore a form factor that is very different from that of a regular rectangular box? Enter the $2,500 Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist.
The first question that most people will ask when they set their sights on the Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist would be this, “Is this a robot first and projector second, or a projector first and a robot second?” The answer to that question is a silent one, you simply will need to spend time with it yourself and then draw your very own conclusions.
The Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist is a mobile robot that has the ability to wirelessly project images and streams videos from the Internet. It can project an 80″ picture on any surface from 9 3/4′ away, and this would free a crowd of viewers from having to huddle around a tiny smartphone screen so that everyone is able to view social media content or perhaps the latest trending YouTube videos. There is also a free app for Apple iOS and Android devices which will allow users to remotely control the robot, allowing the user to command its every roll, pitch, and yaw.
Do take note that the kind of money you pay for this will not offer that much in terms of video resolution, since it maxes out at just 720p HD projection. It is also best to hook it up to another sound system, since the integrated 5-watt speaker is not going to impress anyone. I suppose most of the money would have gone into its robotics than anything else. The app is versatile enough for the user to alter the image’s orientation, adjust the volume level, change content, and schedule a specific time and place for a pre-planned picture show. Connectivity options include USB, HDMI input and media connections.

The copy size that you can use with this is 10.2 x 10.2cm, and you’ll want to use this in a darker room, as you won’t be able to see too much if it’s bright. You will have to get your hands on a 23W CFL bulb for this to be of any use to you, which will tack another $6.99 on top of the initial $29.99 purchase. It’s quite compact, and would be perfect for classrooms or artists who don’t want to (or can’t) pay much more for a gadget like this.

If you’ve ever lived in or visited someone in an apartment in Japan, you know how much sound travels. Talking too loud can have you worried that the neighbors will be upset with you, so it can be very difficult to pursue any hobby or career that makes a lot of sound. This includes everything from playing an instrument and voice acting to playing video games and being immersed in music that’s turned all the way up.
Space is also an issue there, so it makes sense that this Danbocchi Soundproof Cardboard Studio would be created. It’s a less-professional whisper room that’s made out of lightweight materials, weighing in at 66.6lbs once it is completely set up. You will need to put things together on your own, but there aren’t many pieces, and you shouldn’t have to worry about it being as difficult as furniture from IKEA.
When it’s assembled, it measures 3.6 x 3.6 x 5.4′, which should give you enough room to at least sit comfortably in the box. This isn’t a cheap box made of cardboard, costing you $1,618, but it is certainly cleaner than anything you could jerry-rig at home out of grocery store boxes. There are a couple different variations of this box for those that have more or less space, but none cost less than a grand, so it’ll need to be a pretty serious consideration to dump money into.

We are all unable to have a photographic memory — only a handful of humans have the ability to do so, and these are very, very rare indeed. Well, we are thankful that there is technology which will be able to help us make better decisions while keeping track of our stuff — such as this special Bluetooth tracker from the folks over at Rand McNally. Rand McNally’s latest device, the Highlight, is touted to be a powerful and versatile Bluetooth tracker which enables users to shine a digital spotlight on tagged personal items.
You do not even need to have any kind of Spider sense in order to keep track of your devices, or use a Spider tracker like Spiderman. The Highlight trackers come in the form of decorative disks that measures slightly more than an inch in its diameter, where it will be stuck to valuables in a wide range of ways. The tiny design also makes it a snap to attach the Highlight disks to many important and yet easily misplaced items including a myriad of keys, wallets, laptops, and appliance remotes, be they for the sound system, fan, air conditioner, or even TV.
Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally shared, “We developed Highlight to help people stay organized and solve the everyday problem of misplacing items. Life is hectic and Highlight offers a helpful little reminder about your most valuable items when your mind is on other things. It also provides great peace of mind when you travel.”
Using the free Highlight app on iOS or Android-powered devices, you can then connect the handset to these disks. As long as the items are within the Bluetooth range, they can be detected. It also works the other way around, where pressing a button on the Highlight disk will then trigger a user’s misplaced phone and have it emit a sound, how cool is that?
