Ostendo Technologies chip to bring holograms to smartphones

Ostendo chip that can produce a hologram

Virtual reality won’t require strapping a bulky contraption to your head in the future. Instead, you may just step into an empty room and then suddenly seeing life-size, 3-D images of people and furniture. Or look down at a smartwatch and see virtual objects float and bounce above the wrist, like the holographic Princess Leia beamed by R2-D2 in the movie “Star Wars.”

When it comes to wearable tech you have to reach into your pocket every time you receive a text or want to snap a photo is the height of inconvenience. Google Glass and its competitors have laid claim to your face, while Samsung, Pebble, and a number of others want your wrist for their own. But there’s a new concept out there that wants to take your notifications, map directions, and search results off your body entirely. (Video)

Keecker: A robot that that can project digital art and video in your home

Thomas Frey with the Keecker robot — a new way to experience digital media – at CES 2014.

People love their screens. Many of us have TVs in multiple rooms in our homes. We may prop our tablet up in the kitchen when we cook and tap away at our smartphone screen anywhere we happen to be. We like being able to access content at all times and go to great lengths to make it available to ourselves.

3M Rolls Out MPro 150 Pocket Projector With 1GB Of On-Board Storage

3mpro150-3m-projector
3M just got done pushing out its MPro 120, and here at CES people are already feasting their eyes on the MPro 150. For all intents and purposes, this is just an MPro 120 with 1GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot. It was spotted it over at CES Unveiled, and while the VGA video wasn’t anything special, the ability to open and display PDFs, Excel files and PowerPoint documents (in addition to the traditional movie and audio files) was indeed a nice add for the traveling salesperson. Hit up the full release after the break if you’re thirsty for more details, and you should see it ship next month for just under $400.

Portable DVD LED Projector

Does it also come in pink?

Designed with the f word in mind (that’s fun, potty mouth), this idiot-proof LED projector features an integrated DVD player and built-in stereo speakers. Simply plug it in, bung in a disc and gawp in wonder as it beams a quality image (up to 50”) on the wall. Papa-papa-papa-papa – yeah!

Man, the Nikon Coolpix S1000pj has gone from crazy rumor to seemingly-real to whoa-here’s-the-press-release in record time — the compact cam with the integrated projector was just officially announced, along with the three other cams we saw leaked earlier today.

3M Launches First Pocket-Size Projector

 3M Launches First Pocket-Size Projector

The Pocket Projector: It’s tiny! 

That’s projector, not protector. But geeks will rejoice nonetheless. The pocketsize projector has been the Holy Grail of gadgets for many years, and now we’ve got it. 3M sent us one of their first samples of their MPro110 mini projector a few weeks ago (but asked us to keep it on the down-low for a while). I immediately plugged it into a DVD player and watched Blackhawk Down on my desk-literally, on it, as I aimed it at my white Ikea desktop. (Ah, to be owned by a Swedish company.) It also worked on the wall, on a piece of 8.5-by-11-inch printer paper and on the back of my colleague, Doug.

Introducing the iShow Micro Projector

 Introducing the iShow Micro Projector

Add a projector to make your iPhone complete

During his studies at H.I.T., Moti Barzilay had to design something iconic in the realm of Apple products – something he felt was missing from their lineup. He came up with the iShow. It’s a portable projector designed for Apple’s line of iPods, iPhones, and MacBooks. The clam inspired body turns on when you pull the two discs apart to expose a pico projector and ports. He doesn’t mention pixel resolution but the projection system is LED based and no you can’t use it as a Yo-Yo. (Pics)
