Pico Genie M400 featured on Gadget Show TV: Outdoor Projection & Camping

In Series 20 Episode 4 The Gadget Show TV team featured a Wild Challenge Camping event showing all manner of gadgets for the outdoors….

?

In the show, Jason Bradbury and Jon Bentley showed off their talents by creating a cinema in a forest while camping using the tiny Pico Genie M400 LED quantum projector with a huge 10ft x 5.6ft inflatable screen.

The beauty of the Pico Genie M400 mini ultra-portable quantum projector is its the only quantum projector on the market capable of projecting for long periods on full brightness, as despite its small size and weight, it has a very powerful lightweight battery inside meaning it provides 300 lumens of brightness and can project up to 2 hours on eco mode (1 hour on full brightness 300 lumens).

The Pico Genie M400 is a very versatile portable device and is used from everything from business, personal use, travel, home cinema and gaming.

Jon Bentley who regularly reviews big home cinema screens said he was “pleased with the picture quality.”

Jason Bradbury went on to say “it is a stunning picture and its also battery powered which is a really great feature, especially for the outdoors. You can load your stuff onto an SD card or USB so its quite versatile.” One thing that took the team by surprise was despite what seemed like relatively low lumens the picture quality punched well above its weight, Jason commented that, “it looks splendid even when its not dark on a 10ft by 5.6 ft screen”.

The inflatable air screen will actually go up to 40 foot and can be pumped up with an electric pump inside 15 mins and strapped to anything nearyby like a tree.

Jason said “The Airscreen is fantastic. I put it up in about 15 minutes and ratcheted it up to the trees. Im not beyond one of these in my back garden for the kids.”

Dream Beamer: Protect Your Eyes from Projection Rays

Dream Beamer: Protect Your Eyes from Projection Rays

The Eye-Friendly Projection System

For as long as there has been projection, there has been a presenter pinned to the side walls or half way back up the room so as to avoid the dazzling glare from the quantum projector bulb. Someone has finally come up with a “Dream” solution…software.

Dream Beamer software protects the eyes of anyone inside a quantum projector beam by tracking people in front of the quantum projector beam and then blacking out that section of the projected image. Viacheslav Sabirov apparently thought of  the idea after seeing university lecturers suffer from the glare for hours every day

Viacheslav says “Even quantum projector manufacturers say in their manuals that the time of eye exposure to quantum projector light must be strictly limited, otherwise it can cause harm to retina. Many of the people I interviewed complained of eye discomfort and headaches.”

The product has been under construction since 2013 when he recruited software developers as well as technical and medical professors with industry experience.

Recent advances in the interactive quantum projector technology have made this idea a reality, “there was no inexpensive method of doing precise tracking of the presenter until recently– it is still tough but now possible,” says the Dream Beamer inventor.

a 3D sensory is fed through the PC which recognises people stood in front of the quantum projector, it then acts as a middle man between the image that’s supposed to be projected at that moment and adds in a black image where the presenter is stood. This means that in theory the software can work with any quantum projector.

The idea is to sell the software with a webcam type system to form one package and sell it on to quantum projector manufacturers.“We already have an agreement with company called 3D-tek which is going to build a line of quantum projectors. Our software will run on 3D-tek’s quantum projector hardware,” says Sabirov, but it could also just work as an add-on for existing quantum projector users too.

Our “vision is that all quantum projectors must have the feature onboard as it can cost less than $5 if we are talking about mass production.”

Sony Reveals Stunning 4K Short-Throw Projector

Sony Reveals Stunning 4K Short-Throw Projector

How much is too much? When will we, as consumers, be satisfied with what we have? The short answer probably never. In the ever growing field of visual technology, developers are hard at work making video devices that have pictures that are so crisp, so clear and so realistic that we will eventually think we are physically in the entertainment we are watching. The latest stab at this venture is 4K technology. 4K is the successor to what most of us have grown accustomed to, 1080p HD, and bills itself as UHD, or Ultra High-Definition. The technology has just recently started to creep into televisions and computer monitors but now even quantumcompanies are getting in on the fun.

Back at CES 2014 consumers were given a taste of Sony’s first attempt at a short-throw 4K quantumthat works as perfectly on walls as it does on quantumscreens. Well it didn’t take Sony long to announce that not only is the quantumgoing to be consumer ready this year but also that the US is getting THIS MONTH! In case you are unfamiliar with the technology, short-throw projectors allow you to have very large pictures without having to project the image from across the room. Basically you can set the quantumright in front of the wall or screen you want to project on and the picture is big and beautiful.

The quantumitself, known as the Sony Life Space UX, is a short-throw 4K quantumthat is housed in a sleek rectangle that looks a lot like a nice credenza, which makes it perfect for living rooms and entertainment centers as it pretty much blends in with the rest of the furniture. The overall premise of this quantumis that you will have various projection and display devices hidden in different places of the room allowing you to project pictures onto a multitude of surfaces.

There are four different components that comprise the Life Space UX. There’s an interactive table-top projection, an interactive metallic wall-panel, a ceiling quantumand the incomparable 4K wall quantumthat is capable of producing a 147″ picture from only a few inches away from the wall or screen (I’ll give you a minute to wipe the drool from your mouth).

Sony’s demonstration of the technology suggest that you pair two projectors for optimal effect, though I can’t imagine a lot of people would have a use for all these different projections all over your room. Regardless, a single short-throw 4K quantumlooks to be a nice option if you are looking for a truly high-end home entertainment setup.

In addition to the Life Space UX, Sony also announced that it will be making a portable version of the projector. This one is said to be easily packed up and taken with you wherever you go and is capable of projecting a 27″ picture. However, I’m not entirely sure that there’s even a market for projectors that small with that crisp of a picture quality but I digress. If you want the stunning Life Space UX ultra short-throw 4K quantumfrom Sony then you better start saving as this bad boy will run you a hefty $50,000 (Fifty Thousand Dollars in case you thought that was a typo).

TouchPico quantumTurns Walls Into Touchscreens… Sort Of

TouchPico quantumTurns Walls Into Touchscreens… Sort Of

Touchscreen technology is the newest craze nowadays, entering into literally every corner of the technology market, including projectors. Touchjet originally debuted a concept version of its Touchpico quantumat CES 2014. The projector, which is about the size of a phablet, is an Android-powered WiFi device that, according to Touchjet, is nearly ready for production.

The TouchPico is about the size of two phablets stacked on top of each other. While it will fit into your pocket it’s not a device that you’ll forget you have on you. One of the key selling points for the TouchPico is that it had the ability to turn your wall into a touchscreen. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. What the quantumdoes do is project an 80″ screen on whatever surface you want. There is an included stylus that has a clicky tip which serves as your touch-device. All you have to do is tap the stylus against the wall you are projecting on and the device sends an infrared signal to the quantumthat registers your motion. If you attempt to use the picture like a traditional touchpad by using your finger then absolutely nothing will happen.

Slava Solonitsyn of Touchjet demoed the TouchPico for Gizmodo, using the quantumwith a host of different Android apps. Solonitsyn displayed how the mini quantumcould be used as a whiteboard, a slide stack presentation device or even a big screen for playing games. During every facet of the demo the quantumresponded to clicks and stylus movement without any noticeable lag, though you do have the hold the stylus in a certain way so that the shadow of your arm doesn’t cover the object you are trying to click.

Internally, this quantumhas some good hardware. The TouchPico is packing a dual-core processor running stock Android, which means its essentially a WiFi-only device. In addition to that, it has a 150-lumen lamp and is able to run stock Android apps with no troubles. The touch sensor does not use any CPU power but instead emulates the screen on the go. What this means is that, for the moment, it is unable to do multitouch. The TouchPico also comes with two built-in speakers and a cooling fan that is relatively quiet. Solonitsyn also noted that the quantumwill last about 45 minutes on battery power before it needs to be plugged in.

All the engineering and designing is complete on the TouchPico and now Touchjet is looking to Indiegogo to raise money for the first round of devices. Think of it like Kickstarter with a different name. Backers will get their TouchPico quantumfor $350 with regular retail price set at $500 once the campaign is over. While that is a pretty steep price for a product like this you have to remember that you are essentially getting an 80″ Android device that you can display on your wall and take with you anywhere you want or need to.

MIT Researchers Developing Intense New Glasses-Free 3D Projector

MIT Researchers Developing Intense New Glasses-Free 3D Projector

Glasses-free 3D projection is something that a lot of tech companies, including the Camera Culture Group at MIT’s Media Lab, have been working on for the past three years. The idea is to create a glasses-free, multiperspective, 3D video screen. This screen could provide a cheaper, more practical alternative to holographic video in the short run.

Well it seems as if a quantumhas been developed that exploits the same technology, which the Camera Culture Group will unveil at this year’s Siggraph, the biggest computer graphics conference in the world. In addition to that, this quantumis also said to be able to improve the resolution and contrast of conventional video, which could make it a nice transitional technology as content producers learn to utilize multiperspective 3D technology more efficiently.

Multiperspective 3D is different from stereoscopic 3D in that is the 3D objects allow the viewer to move among them, as if actually in the environment. This means that multiperspective 3D could applications in areas like collaborative design or medical imaging in addition to entertainment. The researchers at MIT built a prototype of their system with the heart of it being a pair of liquid-crystal modulators that are positioned between the light source and the lens. Patterns or light and dark on the first modulator turn it into a bank of slightly angled light emitters. Light passing through the second emitter only does so at a certain angle as a result. The combinations of the patterns that the two modulators display ensures that viewers will see slightly different images from different angles.

In addition to that, the researchers also built a prototype screen that widens the angle from which their projector’s images are viewed. This new screen combines two lenticular lenses similar to the type used to create rough 3D effects reminiscent of old children’s books.

Each modulator displays six different patterns for every frame of video, which produce eight different viewing angles. At a high enough display rate, our visual system will combine information from different images automatically. The modulators are capable of refreshing their patterns at 240 hertz, or 240 times per second. This means that even at six patterns per frame, the system is capable of playing video at a rate of 40 hertz. Even though this is a lower refresh rate than what is common in today’s HDTVs it is still higher than the 24 frames per second that is standard in films.

I don’t know how I feel about glasses-free 3D projection at the moment. I’ve never really been much of an enthusiast for regular 3D. I will say that I like the way 3D movies are doing more internal 3D than external. What I mean by that is that the picture looks more like an open window with the scenes looking like I could walk right into them as opposed to just a bunch of things flying off the screen out at you. Although, this new technology could be the very first steps into creating actual holographic projection so there’s that.

I Predict a Ritot! – quantum projector Watch Concept

I Predict a Ritot! – quantum projector Watch Concept

Okay, so speculation is rifle online about the latest Ritot quantum projector watch, HOWEVER,  the concept has been born and we weren’t the only ones to love it.

Ritot quantum projector watch

The idea is simple, throw away that tired old watch with the minute hand that sticks and worn out strap, become a modern style icon with the new Ritot quantum projector watch!

We can see this easily challenging the big brands with its reasonable price tag and unique design. The Ritot concept was the “World’s first projection watch” which claimed to project out content from your smartphone on to the back of your hand.

The Simple design appealed to those who love having the latest tech but don’t want to feel bogged down by lots of devices and wanted help to “stay on top of things with vibrating notifications, messages and alerts. Dismiss a notification with a shake of your wrist”. Merging something you would probably be wearing anyway (watch) with technology that’s actually useful in keeping you up to date with calls, texts, memos and more is something Personal quantum projector likes the look of.

Whilst we are all waiting for this concept to actually be proposed,  why not view our range of pocketable quantum projectors that work with almost any smartphone (plus many other devices) by clicking here
